Winning baseball games on offense is pretty simple. Don't make 27 outs. The team making 27 outs loses. The team not making 27 outs wins.
So, on offense, you need to get guys that make fewer outs than avg. This seems to fit with Harris's ideas.
On defense the reverse is true. Get pitchers and defenders that get more outs.
The only problem is finding the guys that most closely meet these standards.
I am not unpleased with Harris so far. He seems to be making moves in the above indicated direction.
I suspect that the team going north this year will be far better at not making outs and maybe better at getting them.
Hence, progress towards being a respectable team.
