I have no idea who won the WS last year, Giants maybe?

I think they've won it twice in the last few years (I give up when the halos fold.)

Is Bochy a metrics guru? Or is he an old school gut manager? I agree, there isn't a manager who doesn't use some type of statistical data.

Who are the savants? Have they won anything?

The A's haven't won a WS in years, right? Is this all on Theo Epstein?

Someone help me understand this. Is the manager of the future some nerd who never played?

I think the managers of the future are the ones who can understand and apply the analytics submitted down by the front office but also be relateable to the players so, no, I don't think you'll be seeing a non-baseball playing "nerd" as a manager any time soon.   

 

As for Epstein, per wikipedia:

" He is credited with making several key acquisitions, including David Ortiz, Kevin Millar, and Curt Schilling, during his first tenure as Red Sox GM. These players were regarded as instrumental in breaking the so-called "Curse of the Bambino" when the Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2004 World Series".

 

Also, he was the GM behind the 2007 team that won it as well.  Since moving to Chicago as their President, he has slowly and methodically built the Cubs into a contender with a 67-49 record and a boatload of young talent (Bryant, Schwarber, Rizzo, Russell, Soler, Castro).  We'd be lucky to have an Epstein clone at the helm.

 

That being said, to get in a situation like the Cubs, you need to be bad enough long enough to have access to a pool of top talent and know how to maximize the talent you receive.  Just like the Pirates, Astros, Royals, Rays...I don't know if we have that option.
