    Reds Hire New Minor League Field Coordinator

    From https://www.cincinnati.com/story/spo...lb/1911015002/

    NEW FIELD COORDINATOR: The Reds hired Chris Tremie as their minor league field coordinator after he spent 12 years in the Cleveland Indians’ minor league system. He replaces Bill Doran in that role.

    Tremie managed at Triple-A Columbus for the last six seasons.

    “This was an opportunity to add someone from an organization we think does development right,” Williams said. “Got him over here and he really hit the ground running. Fits well with our staff, good guy, I got to meet him in person when he came in for his interview. I knew him from across the field before, but I think our guys did a great job of surfacing candidates. He’s got a good idea of what it takes to implement a new instruction system on the field.”

    The Reds are searching for a minor league pitching coordinator.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I think the Reds might finally be taking the re-build seriously. It was always going to be more than just acquiring better players. Identifying them, developing them, those are just as important.

    I know absolutely nothing about these guys, haven't heard of them, but I like the fact that they are outside hires.

    I very well could be misunderstanding what you are suggesting here, and if so, I apologize in advance. But I can tell you this: yes, improving in the use of analytics is important. But if you have two organizations and you are looking at player development (instruction in the minor leagues) and Org A has significantly better “baseball guys” than Org B, and Org B has significantly better analytics people than Org A, the end result would be Org A beating Org B like a piñata. You don’t teach Nick Senzel the correct footwork to turn a double play at second base with a computer. You don’t teach Jonathan India correct balance on a charge-and-throw play with a computer. You don’t teach outfielders how to take proper crossover steps and good routes to the ball with a computer. You don’t teach Hunter Greene how to improve his changeup with a computer. I am not downplaying the use of analytics, but having the best baseball guys is the key. Those are the actual teachers. The use of metrics is a support tool, important yes, but in comparison to the guy actually teaching the prospect how to play the game, it is not even close. You need good, hard-working baseball guys who can teach/communicate and who can recognize issues that need to be addressed and improved on when they see them.

    I think the point is more that they don't strive to hire the best guys, but scrappy guys with local ties get the nod instead whether or not they are qualified.

    absolutely yes. If you're from Greater Cincinnati and played MLB its like the Reds think its your birthright to have a job with them.
