Re: Castellini..."Wayne Krivsky's greatest asset is his decisiveness."
Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. I have the same problem as O'Brien had. You can spend forever waiting to do something because you want it to be exactly right. In the meantime, nothing gets done. While your decisions, on balance, still need to be good ones, there is value in decisiveness itself.
Good direction is useless without movement. While ideally you have movement in the right direction, at least with movement in general you have a chance of stumbling in the right direction.
Does anybody care if win 65 games instead of 82 if we still miss the playoffs every year?
It's Marlins & D'Backs vs. Pirates & Royals.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
