Perry Hill's Twitter

Wait, he's supposedly the best infield coach walking the face of the Earth. Why would anyone care about what he thinks about WAR or WHIP or whatever?

 

They pay him to make infielders better, supposedly by teaching positioning, footwork and throwing techniques and no doubt lots of other infielding obscurantisms, not readily apparent to us mere mortals.

 

Lemme know when he's about to replace someone in the FO. Then I might give a crap about what he thinks about stats.

He just dislikes WAR and WHIP. *shrug* He's old, let him be.

 

 

There are things in baseball that stats don't demonstrate, certain intangibles that just don't show up in a box score, so if a baseball vet like Hill chooses not to like WAR I'm okay with that. I kind of like the old school way, but certainly see a need for the analytical approach too!

What's the difference between the moves the Marlins front office makes and Perry Hill's mindset on his Twitter? Clearly, absolutely nothing. Any team that starts Jeff Mathis and Donovan Solano and thinks that Adeiny Hechavarria had a gold-glove caliber year follows this line of thinking.

Again, I'm not sure why it's even remotely relevant unless they are letting Perry Hill help pick players .... in which case it's more of a FO problem, than a Perry Hill problem

 

From my understanding he is there to make infielders better at their position on the field, their technique and a whole bunch of other stuff that comes from playing the position

 

It's the FOs responsibility to give him the players to coach

 

the only way I could see this being an issue is if the FO approached him with advanced statistics about their own players range, strengths/weaknesses or how to coach up the infielders to a specific opponent or situation and he wasn't receptive to the input

 

I don't think those conversations are happening though

 

Until the point where advanced statistics actually interface with him and he rejects to listen to them in doing his job then it's a non-issue

 

Now if you want to have a conversation about if the FO should provide that information then that's something to really discuss

It's hard to say what's going on because it seems like Perry Hill doesn't even know what WAR is.

If he doesn't care about stats, he probably doesn't botherto check scouting reports for every hitter to shift his infield defense. Or does he not consider those types of things to be stats?

 

 

Actually it has been reported that he does check scouting reports thoroughly to position infielders. Why are some of you so down on Perry Hill all of a sudden? We have seen in the past that the team's defense without him has been much worse than with him. And has anyone actually seen any specific evidence that he has anything to do with FO activities? Do you think that they invite all the coaches to participate? Loria just doesn't seem to work that way.

The front office and the coaches work together. Every front office that uses a heavy dose of advanced statistics has a coaching staff that is open-minded to those statistics. Not that the Marlins have either of those things obviously.

WHIP is not even a difficult stat to understand. You'd think an old guy would love that statistic.

 

 

WHIP is a retarded way of measuring base runners allowed. OBP allowed is better way.

 

 

I guess. That's not really my point though. My point is that Perry Hill hates statistics because he doesn't know what they mean. He would probably hate .OBP allowed as well because it has too many letters.

I'm not aware of what most front offices do - I'll have to take your word for that. My point was just that in a Jeffrey Loria front office it seems unlikely that he asks for a lot of input from more than a tight circle of people, and so it is unlikely that Perry Hill has a lot to do with final player selection. I'm just guessing, of course, but to me it seems like a fair assumption.
