Meet the math/computer whiz who helps make Marlins baseball decisions | Miami Herald

So what was realistic about the movie?

“There was sort of a divide between the traditional scouting and the analytics stuff a decade ago,” Parè said. “I do think that gap has closed quite a bit and teams realize that just any source of information they can get more of and better of is going to help them make better decisions and be more of a competitive advantage.

“For every organization I’ve worked with (the Marlins, Indians and Blue Jays), there has been none of that animosity between the scouts and the analytics people. You’re all kind of pulling in the same direction. Even though there are disagreements about certain player evaluations and strategy, there’s a healthy respect in the game today for both sides of it.”
