FanPost Friday - Organizational Philosophy

I don’t know about the rest of you readers, but every day I make a point of it to race home and watch the MLB playoffs. In part because it’s a lot of fun to watch good baseball, and in part because some weirdo decided it would be silly to have playoff games last weekend when those who work from Monday to Friday are free from work.

It’s also left me wondering what lessons we can take from these organizations that are still out there playing games. That means in terms of how they are built, how they approach at bats, how they use their bullpen, and how involved the manager is in all aspects of the game, and anything and everything else.

I have a lot of thoughts. I’m sure you do too.

This week’s prompt:

What lessons are you taking from teams in the 2020 Playoffs? Is the lesson you are taking from these teams something the Red Sox could practically apply in a year or two, or is it more of a long-term plan?

I’m hoping I hear from a lot of you and we can have a fun discussion this upcoming week about how to better the Red Sox!
