I was really engrossed in "Moneyball," and blown away that the Sox adopted Beane's philosophy and won the Series two years later.
Does statistical analysis now hold sway over scouting instincts in the wake of the A's and the Sox' crazy, almost immediate success? Did the numbers philosophy really "change the game," as talking heads said it would? Care to share your views of the theory? Did it change scouting?
i think it changed how most, if not all, teams run there day-to-day operations.
and it also helped to bring statistical analysis into the 21st century...
