The Diamondbacks’ flexible philosophies

““So what’s next for the Diamondbacks? The owner and the CEO are the same. Will they stay old school? Will they go outside-the-box? Will they hire someone who’s got a series of impressive degrees and worked in a baseball front office? Will they go purely sabermetric? Or will they stay where they are and augment La Russa with someone he knows and trusts, like Walt Jocketty?

Any guesses about their future might be accurate because the Diamondbacks have tried just about everything. There’s no reason to believe they’ll make any alterations to that haphazard arrangement now and, judging by their somewhat bizarre history, it’s liable to work.”“
