  • Managerial Tendencies

    If I remember correctly there were a series of articles about managerial tendencies
    for the teams that had managerial changes last year. I found those very helpful in assessing stolen base opportunities, handling of relievers, etc.

    This came to mind because of the assertation in todays column that Kenny Lofton
    was going to a team (Texas) that did not run nearly as much as his former
    team (Dodgers). With Texas changing managers, I wondered about whether
    that organizational philosophy toward not attempting stolen bases would continue
    or if Lofton might get the green light more often than Texas had done in the
    past.

    Thanks.

    Good point, daburt.

    Texas is more of a home run park so one guesses that most managers would be less inclined to try small ball / one-run strategies like attempting steals. Obviously, your question deserves a closer analysis than that though.
