The answer, of course, was better said by Dayn Perry than anyone else I've heard. Beer or tacoes , he said, indicating that there should be some balance between sabermetrics and scouting. Indeed, scouting should be just another piece of information, but dislodging it's lofty place in baseball has caused something of a rift. This rift is as unnecessary as it is counterproductive.
Unless something can be measured, you need someone who can understand and filter, assigning it some sort of arbitrary value. There are men in baseball - and elsewhere - that can do this with some measure of accuracy. Chemistry? You won't help it by attacking Lee. Lee's a guy who is all ... hmm, which is beer and which is tacoes? ... he's all stats and unabashedly so. Rich is probably a nice guy and I hope I read him wrong or maybe he really did just get up on the wrong side of the bed, which is good, since the last thing we need is more arrogant pricks.
