Dwan told the truth at every point in that hand
In other news, this is the smartest thing I’ve read in 2015:
That’s not what bugs me most about it, though. MLB is a zero-sum game, viciously Darwinian, and Stewart’s ideas will be evaluated over time in the standings. No, what bugs me about it is the underlying message that intellect is somehow less than. That you can’t be a “true baseball team” while getting contributions from the smart people in the room. It’s a ridiculous way to go about running a baseball team. It’s a ridiculous way to go through life, paralleling the strain of anti-intellectualism that has become a plague on our national discourse.
