Neither of these should be major considerations for his hire, IMO, but would they would frankly be the biggest reasons for him getting an INTERVIEW. His baseball philosophy is an unknown (importance scouting v. stats, etc.), but I'll take "UN-known" philosophy over what I know about Hughes' philosophy.
