Alex Anthopoulos bringing high-level analytics approach to Braves

“It was eye-opening for me,” Anthopoulos said of the Dodgers’ use of analytics and as much data as available, boiled down for players to consume if they so chose. “Look, it’s not a panacea for anything. You still need great players and obviously Los Angeles has great players and great acquisitions. Most of all, this stuff, it’s up to the players. Chris Taylor made a lot of great changes in L.A.; he made those changes. He wanted to do that, he had a willingness to do it.”

Chris Taylor was a high character guy from a high character college baseball program. I assume it is people like him who will dive into and embrace a program that may involve a complete rework of the way they approach each at bat and the way they swing. I think there are a lot of players who would not want to mess with what they feel is a good thing, even if it is not.

This is the sort of thing Freddie Freeman would embrace. Maybe Vandy's own Dansby With The Good Hair. Not sure Matt Kemp or Nick Markakis are going to sign up.
