Re: Are most GMs just not really very smart?
GMs aren't very smart?
Is that coming from the premise from some in baseball's fanbase that they think they are smarter?
It simply illustrates IMHO that there is far more to building/operating a franchise then simple statistical analysis (which is only a small part of the whole equation).
It's important to look up the statistical data/performance of a player; but when it comes to assigning market-worth, then I think most fans, who are on the outside looking in, aren't too qualified, and understanding of that market.
It's not any easy job being a GM.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
