Assistant A's GM on Refining the System: From a leadership conference held recently, Oakland A's GM Paul DePodesta talks about how they blew up the legacy way of running a baseball team and how they implemented their current system, which was captured in Michael Lewis' Moneyball. A fascinating read if you are interested in sports, business, process, or innovation.

Excellent read. I'm a purist and still believe in subjective evaluations such as "clubhouse presence, "chemistry", and "clutch hitter" - but DePodesta makes an awful lot of sense. There is room in baseball for all kinds. Good find lew.
