Our future GM?

Here's a great read from 2003 about Chris Antonetti, the Indians' assistant GM and stat-freak.

" Helping to separate head from heart, and gut instinct from statistical reality, is the role of the Indians' confidential computer database, DiamondView. Consider it a kind of truth machine, whose function is to temper, or even override, subjective measurements with objective ones.

Antonetti, the Tribe's best analytical mind, oversees DiamondView's use in team decisions such as the Thome negotiations. The database is believed to be among the most sophisticated in baseball. The Indians are so protective of it, they copyrighted it."


Here's the link to the story.

I don't know if we'll interview this guy, but he would probably get along with Luhnow, don't you think?
