Many apologies in advance, slow and wet day:
Tbf not only was he once considered a nerd and geek of this sport but that crowd sucks. If you found out the majority (interacting with Maddon) were inherited wealth from the Ivys who never struggled like we might imagine (being loooowly nerds and geeks and all) plus don’t care about baseball or winning so much? That their favorite aspect of working in the sport is all the biological, social, and financial data on all these different demographics or something similarly weird intended to gain leverage/control? Who really even besides their bosses has benefitted from this silent shift to where even the Maddons and Epsteins in baseball aren’t nerd enough for FOs? Like those guys *love* winning baseball games, understand the Value of data, so what’s the real agenda pushing them out?
These nerds and geeks are just people/employees, very fallible
