Sabermetrics and the Astros
After the recent success of the Houston Astros several teams have elected to choose similar paths moving forward. A "firesale" is currently happening in Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Milwaukee just to name a few. The availability of money in shallow market teams seems to be the driving force. However; I have a different belief. In history, the team that wins the World Series has done so by playing "Team Ball". Owners and Managers are beginning to realize that good players who perform in unison are better than great players acting as individuals.
I'm very interested in hearing your thoughts.
