Not sure the good folks at the Baltimore Office Sign Company want to see this Szymborski deal ever happen.
I want to see the O’s have another waive of ‘brain power’ added to the organization this Winter.
The Astros have hired Kevin Goldstein from Baseball Prospectus as their Pro Scouting Coordinator. This is a perfectly logical move to me, but extremely progressive for a MLB team.
I’d like to see the Orioles consider hiring Dan Szymborski (founder of ZiPS, EIC of Baseball Think Factory, contributor to ESPN) to their Baseball Analytics department. Boston has utilized Bill James for years. ‘Tom Tango’ (alias) is employed by an undisclosed MLB team. Szymborski would be a comparable hire. The fact that he is a Baltimore native does not hurt either.
Baltimore employs Anderson, and Thomas as Special Assistants to the EVP (Duquette), but do not employ a traditional ‘Assistant General Manager.’
...Adding Szymborski’s Sabermetric background, and Coppolella’s Scouting background would be two very large improvements to the organization as a whole.
