Now the waiting game begins.
PS: how can "baseball guys" be exposed so badly at the strategic level?
When you think about it, the underlying skills which make a person a good player, instructor, and tactician aren't really overlapping. Some people make great scientists, some great researchers, some great professors, and on rare occasion, all of the above, even though they have the exact same subject matter.
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.
