Its mass is estimated to be 6,,,, tons. The distance from the earth to the moon ismiles; while the distance to the sun is 93, miles.
Henry bought the club in and promoted little-known Theo Epstein, a then year old Yale graduate with a law degree, who became the youngest general manager in baseball.
Epstein built a team based on sabermetrics, and two years later the Red Sox had their first World Series championship in 86 years, with two more to follow in the next nine years. Henry has also hired sabermetrics godfather Bill James as a senior advisor and Tom Tippett as director of baseball information services.
Tippett helped create Carmine, the team's proprietary baseball information system.
Carmine puts customized data just a few clicks away, allowing the Red Sox to combine various kinds of data and estimate future performance. Henry and the Sox have shown time and time again that they are playing the long game, willing to make unconventional moves and suffer through short-term failures for a higher expected return.
For the past two seasons, manager John Farrell has followed suit, giving the team a cohesive approach to implementing sabermetrics.
Unlike the A's, whose "Moneyball" strategies were designed to overcome payroll limitations, the Red Sox appear to have an almost unlimited budget for players. That plus their dedication to sabermetric principles makes Boston the leading Big Moneyball team.
Ricketts hired Epstein away from Boston ingiving him the authority to reshape the Cubs' front office. Based in part on Epstein's implementation of sabermetrics, the Red Sox broke an year World Series title drought in Cubs fans hope Epstein's magic touch has made the trip to Chicago, as the Cubs haven't won the World Series since In Chicago, Epstein partnered with Bloomberg Sports to create a customized baseball info system, grabbed Shiraz Rehman from Arizona to help oversee development of the system and signed Tom Tango, a leading sabermetrician and co-author of "The Book: Playing the Percentages in Baseball," to an exclusive contract.
This offseason, Epstein swiped Joe Maddon, perhaps baseball's most analytically inclined manager, from the Tampa Bay Rays. Moore studied machine learning and shares his knowledge of predictive modeling with his department, which includes a systems architect and three analysts, and they are looking to add another developer and another analyst.
So while the Cubs aren't quite as far along as the Astros or Rays yet, they have the buy-in from the top and the talent they need to keep moving in the right direction and quickly. Cleveland Indians The Indians earned a reputation for investing heavily in analytics in the years following "Moneyball" under Mark Shapiro's leadership, and they have shown no signs of deviating from that course.
The Indians grabbed one of the best in the business when they made Keith Woolner their director of baseball analytics in Woolner has technical degrees from MIT and Stanford, and his prior experience includes time with both a database company Oracle and a statistical software company SAS in addition to his work as an influential author at Baseball Prospectus.
Unlike some clubs, wherein statistical analysts give something akin to expert witness testimony, the Indians have integrated analytics into everything they do, so that both technical and non-technical staff members are up to speed on the metrics the team uses.
The Indians have dedicated IT support for their mature baseball information system, which frees their analysts to focus on long-term statistical modeling projects.
Assisting Woolner with this work are Sky Andrecheck and Max Marchi, both of whom have graduate degrees in statistics. Marchi literally wrote the book on analyzing baseball data in the increasingly popular programming language called R.
Houston Astros No team has fewer wins than the Astros over the past 10 seasons, but the team's commitment to analytics is second to none. After the season, GM Jeff Luhnow brought former NASA analyst Sig Mejdal with him from the Cardinals, and they have put together a unique collection of data scientists, with colorful titles to boot: Intheir baseball information system - named Ground Control -- received a flattering profile in Sports Illustrated.
Shortly thereafter, Luhnow was calling other GMs to apologize after hackers breached Ground Control and leaked months of secret trade discussionswhich was picked up by Deadspin. After top pick Brady Aiken's physical revealed abnormalities, they lowered their offer and failed to sign him, earning criticism for negotiating ruthlessly and being, well, calculating.
But a player who saw a benefit from their analysis is pitcher Colin McHugh. After being waived by the Rockies in the postseason, McHugh adapted what pitches he threw based on the Astros' data-driven insights. Mere months later, McHugh became a starter for the Astros, and he posted a 2.Using the main universal truth of dehumanization of war, Remarque presents to us the compelling story of Paul Baumer, who goes through the most traumatic experience in life as he loses all his dearest friends and becomes estranged to his past.

When Philly hired Sam Hinkie in May , the team became a test case for the GM's plan: dump overvalued mediocrity, lose (a lot) with cheap role players and load up on picks.
