    Baseball aficionados, take a look...

    A friend of mine did an interview with Padres GM Jed Hoyer, some interesting questions.

    http://www.fangraphs.com/community/i...w-jed-hoyer-2/

    sample question...

    Is every pitch thrown by a pitcher counted equally? For instance, if a pitch is thrown in warm-ups at, say, 75% velocity and effort, does this count as a full-thrown pitch on a pitcher’s arm?

    JDH – Great question. Pitch counts have become ...

    Nice rack.

    For some reason I found this the most interesting...

    How big is the difference between knowing your own prospects versus a random team’s prospects?


    JDH – The biggest difference is information. Getting to know your own player’s makeup, his work ethic, his motivation is something that comes naturally through time and attention. With another team’s players, you are constantly digging to discover those things but you will never have the same level of insight. Anytime you acquire a prospect you are taking a risk because you can’t possibly get to know them as well as you hope. Your own players you know very well – sometimes, I might add, too well. It can be easy to over-analyze small flaws once discovered.
