"john thorn" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"That are like, yeah, we'll just develop velocity in everybody. We can just develop below if we need it and you have works that are just really keen on strike throwing even if it comes with lower below. So there are different modes of successful pitching, even as we see league wide trends. And just you just got to be willing to say, that didn't work. Let's do a different thing, you know? And I think you're right that the common thread among all of the organizations that I think of as being particularly adept at pitching dev is a willingness to sort of meet the player where they are, and that doesn't mean that they don't try to improve different aspects of the player's game, but that they are not so committed to saying, you know, we have to all we have an approach. There's a way. And if you don't do that way, you might not have any use to us, you know, they look at a player and say, can we maximize the skill set you have and that might mean developing another pitch or changing a grip or helping you develop velocity, but they're willing to kind of work with a guy. And I think those are the works that tend to be able to navigate the changing trends that we see across the game, right? They're the ones that are the best positioned when they're bright. They're bright young analysts goes and works for somebody else because that happens too. I guess it can get you into trouble if you have a lot of success with a certain philosophy because then you could get complacent or you could say, this is working really well for us. So why would we go away from it? And then under your nose, the game changes in some way and maybe you miss out on the pitch design revolution and maybe your old strategy that was working so well isn't serving you so well anymore. So it is said if you're not constantly just kind of looking out for the new thing and evaluating new trends and where the game is going, then you could get caught flat footed, you could almost be a victim of your own success because you're like, hey, this is working great where the Cardinals, again. I'm not saying the cardinals are not investing in those things and doing those things as well. But I wouldn't say that they've necessarily been among the trailblazers at the Vanguard and I guess you can sort of understand why because they've been quite successful. So there aren't a lot of teams like the rays who seemingly are just constantly looking for what the next thing will be or inventing the next thing and maybe that's a product of the personnel they have in place. Maybe it's a product of their ownership spending constraints just kind of forcing the front office to always constantly be on the lookout or maybe that just becomes like your organizational ethos. That's our thing. We're always looking for the next thing, even if we find something that seems to be working, we're not going to just commit ourselves to that long term. Yeah, and if you wait long enough, the trend will just come back around. Probably. Yeah. Right, exactly. Yeah, I mean, there's been a bit of a sinker sensor resurgence lately, right after that pitch seemed to be on the outs and, hey, then suddenly the ball is dead again. And maybe you can bring back those pitches. So you never know. You never know. All right. Here's a question from Devin Patreon supporter in episode 1838 near the end there is a brief discussion of replay review signals in MLB and Japan and elsewhere. It was suggested that managers look to other signals for requesting a review if over the ear headphones become disconnected from the original act of review. This made me think of the save icon, a floppy disk that people born after 1995 may have never seen or used. Yet the disc remains a universal symbol that seems to be well understood. That made me wonder, are there other baseball symbols or language that are now divorced from their original usage in a similar way? And I think there are a lot of examples of that just in tech in other walks of life. I mean, just the fact that, I guess, you know, picking up with the save icon being a floppy disk. The phone icon is generally like an old over the ear kind of like folded up to your ear and that is not what most people's phones look like anymore, but we know what the phone icon looks like and you and I were old enough that we grew up with actual phones that looks like that, but not everyone. So I think there's a term for that, I believe. I think it's called a skeuomorph. If that's not the term, it should be. Because what a great word to get to say. It is true. Skew a morph. Yeah, I'm just a reading from the wiki here. It's a derivative object that retains ornamental design cues or attributes from structures that were necessary in the original, skew amorphous are typically used to make something new, feel familiar in an effort to speed understanding and acclimation. So for example, if you have electric lights like an electric chandelier that has like candle shaped bulbs or light fixtures, that kind of thing, they don't have to look like that. They still look like that. So they used to look like that. Yeah, they're a lot of the wiki mentions pottery embellished with imitation rivets, reminiscent of similar pots made of metal or a software calendar that imitates the appearance of binding on a paper desk calendar, right? Like if you look at your calendar on your phone, it might be an image of an actual paper calendar. The kind that you use still, I guess you use a notebook right now. What is this? Yeah. As a planner, I think it is different. It is, it is sort of in the same family, but it is a unique species of thing. I don't remember how biology works, but I think that's right. So I don't know if the word skeuomorph only applies to visible things or physical objects and whether you would use a different word for a word, but or for terminology, but I think there are a ton of these in baseball and I'm sure that our listeners, their minds are teaming with examples here. I was just thinking of a couple like shortstop. Yeah. Why do we call that the shortstop? Historically, I guess, shortstops tended to be short, but that is no longer the case. And I don't think that is why they were called short. Why are they called shortstop? No one really knows and remembers I'm reading from an MLB dot com piece here. Shortstop is such an everyday part of the game that you might never have stopped to think about what the heck it actually means according to MLB official historian John thorn, the position was created by Doc Adams, a member of the knickerbocker baseball club, one of the game's founding fathers in the owner of a heck of a beard. At the time, baseball wasn't a 9 man game, the only things required to field a team were a pitcher, a catcher and a defender at each base with a surplus players being placed in the outfield. This created some fielding issues however, the earliest baseballs were handmade and very light, and it was nearly impossible to throw them any significant distance, like, say, from the outfield to the infield. So atoms had an idea, position of Fielder in the short field, or shallow outfield, to help get the ball back into the infield more quickly and efficiently. It was like a relay man since most throws from the outfield came toward third base or home plate, and most batters pulled the ball, it only made sense for him to stand on the left side of the diamond as baseballs became harder they were capable of being hit and thrown farther, allowing the new shortstop to move into the infield. So we say short stop, no one remembers that that's the case, or even thinks about why we say shortstop necessarily. So that would be an example..

G. R. I knew that the dogs were not going to be available on that day but the one thing I wanted to develop further was the history of John thorn because in the book you see is doing suspects smack in a you know he's the machinery of god at work he arrives just in time to save doctor we don't know where it comes from his only utility is to attend to the to the book story but I thought it would be more emotionally powerful to develop the context in which each character let the other kids their destiny as it were and so we explored options for it for the story for John Thornton and came up with the character that's that's in the film I thought that that was really interesting exercise for me professionally to get in involved with this story and to to work on keeping a character and yeah always.

seventy six point six percent of the vote he got in by six votes barrel Lloyd and the V. twelve rocker they cross the sixty percent barrier for the first time that they would need another sixty or so votes John Thorne is the Major League Baseball official Astoria he called last year's election of president his quote today Mariana Rivero was the very best at what he did Derek Jeter wall not be the very best at what he did this is John thorn major league baseball's officials story in and he goes on to say the meaningfulness of Mariano Rivera achieving unanimity just testify his two way herd mentality again John Thorne as major league baseball's official historian calling last year's election of president again I'm going to read the quote Mariana was the very best of what he did Derek Jeter will not be the very best at what he did the meaningfulness of Mariana which she van unanimity drugs testifies to a herd mentality one did not vote for him today you could also again regarding the comment here from John thorn and the herd mentality Mickey mantle Joe DiMaggio Willie Mays Tom Seaver how many can you name never made a hundred percent can Griffey junior and neither did Derek Jeter and all of us thought he would Derek Jeter is in the hall of fame and that is the bottom line and he deserves to be in the hall of fame whether you are wearing pinstripes or non he always said the right thing even though nobody remembers anything ever said as a player he was he was able to say no comment without ever saying no comment he never wore a buzzer only through trash into a garbage can and he stole more bases than signs the issue was not if he would make the hall of fame today but whether he would be joining Rivera as unanimous choice and again one did not vote for him name the nine point seven percent you can argue whether he's the best ever but the issue now none of his baseball cards are worth one of Honus Wagner is Ozzie Smith was number one when it came to back flips and Ernie banks wanted to play to when one was good enough for pee wee Reese and nobody could bump like Phil Rizzuto and of course Maury wills just now stolen other bays and in Boston nobody better than Joe Cronin and Rico Ventris Ellie and no more Garciaparra old timers won't miss remember Marty Marion they won't miss remember Alvin dark gore Davey Concepcion of the bigger than big red machine in the WFA and hall of fame ballot and of course all of bis voted here with this CBS sports radio people right down the hall in my fan hall of fame ballot we voted for number two when your program number one in the hard see Hank you fans and we also voted for all more of this scale only a hundred heads for him over four hundred stolen bases for him I had two seventy two a lifetime average and eleven town a mall Levin gold gloves he was home on the range that's for sure and he had plenty of that Cincinnati love Barry Larkin and Trammell and short and would occur at second own Detroit and in Pittsburgh so might have did grow the better higher than bill Mazza ruski and there's plenty to say about how smooth was low we sapper Recio and sure handed mark Belanger yes Ernie banks of the Chicago Cubs and robin beyond those to played other positions sure but they're all of fame years were over there at short all of the short stops didn't get as much of the vote as Derek Jeter did today and that one who did not vote for him is going to be hanging up on somebody but we are not going to go there again and give the kind of attention we gave to a writer in San Diego who was the one who didn't vote for siteground two years ago so there's plenty to talk about with this Jeter not getting the one vote but certainly the hall of Famer and you can make the argument and Yankee fans I'm sure well that he might have been and is better than cal Ripken junior better than an Ernie banks better than a robin Yount maybe the best shortstop of all time and certainly if anyone was voting on the best shortstop of all time here's a gas number two what your program number one and yards of Yankee fans definitely would be voting him the best of all time a word or two of course we're going to take whatever calls we will take about the one who did not vote for Derek Jeter I think don't don't over react on IT is in the hall of fame and that's where he belongs he deserves the hall of fame if you're going to go nuts on the one vote you know save it for something a little bit more important but something to say about with the Mets and what has been with looking for a new manager now may be the New York Mets will name the guy who really wants the job more than anyone else Brody van wagon then maybe the Mets will name Brody their new manager apparently he never had a plan be so what about the final is what about Eduardo Pereira is what a bad Tim Bogar well read that way sometimes common sense is not so common if it's true that Brody and his staff of number two pencils are concerned about their place in the sun was Steve Coll one and what he might think of the new manager that Brody is to select then here is what the Brody really needs to do have a meeting with Steve come on get his choices if he has one and then do what you need to do if Colin things dusty Baker or bug show Warner are worthy then tell him you'll consider and then make your choice and if you want to keep your job and lose so little control then make it a bang for the Buck and shoe show warder end of the search and not necessarily the end of your job we also have of course with the is Superbowl coming up into what it seems like two years already before they found to get going but the number one story is not that Derek Jeter not a lecture to the hall of fame that is no surprise no major news at all the major news is that he did not get a hundred percent of the vote and again I'll read the quote we'll take a break and then we'll get right away to your telephone calls John Thorne major league baseball's official historian calling last year's election of president his quote Mariana was the very best of what he did Derek Jeter will not be the very best at what he did thorn said the

"Sabermetrics on Sports Television and you certainly have seen him when he was with. Espn Dan where he was an anchor for them for fourteen years and he's written a fascinating book. It's called ahead of the curve inside the baseball revolution and this book is Kennedy's effort to reshape. The way you think about baseball and the obvious question. I think Brian is what caused the rethinking of baseball. On your part. Well well. I came across the information During the early days of the revolution by getting total baseball which was Pete Palmer and John Thorns Book in Nineteen Nineteen Ninety One. It was the baseball encyclopedia. And it had the the modern slash line laid out for the first time that I saw it padding average on base and slugging They also had the what was the sabermetrics manifesto in there the hidden game of baseball and so from there just reading that going onto Bill James Reading that had already been reading some Bill James but it hasn't really sunk in so just all of this education and then constant thought about baseball. I always loved baseball as Paul love to do. Hall of fame debates and Comparative Analysis and Reading Bill James and more Bill James and then going to espn and doing baseball full time. When I was doing baseball tonight at that point I realized why am I still talking or be is and batting? Average pitcher pitcher wins. And all this stuff. I started questioning things and I figured as the analytic revolution was happening. Everyone else in the media would be jumping on board and what I found out was not on. TV nobody was jumping on board. Everything as we know it. has had periods. I mean there's been art periods have been music periods Donovan Sports so tell me about some of the baseball periods. What do you mean exactly? Well I mean the different things and transitions that baseball has gone through over the Decade and also over the many many years beyond that. Well you know most of what we knew about baseball. And how we measured baseball came about out in the nineteen th century. When it made sense you know? The reliance on batting average pitcher wins The triple crown round numbers. All these things made sense when you were an errors as well. All these things made sense when the game was mainly made up of singles ingles and the ball in play with fielders with no gloves and Major League Games. Averaging Twelve Ariza game the way to differentiate between teams was ause you know base hits runs and errors by the time that was alive ball And the live ball era. It's got to Babe Ruth. Basically that was out the window but we had already calcified in our thinking at that point. And that's Kinda the way we measured baseball up until the mid nineties you know even again. That's Bill James P.. Palmer to Kramer the sabermetrics pioneers came about in the seventies and eighties. They were just basically shunned until you know you you decades later when finally probably because of the computers and Internet Revolution as well and the information age came in that it just couldn't be ignored anymore..
