Seems like this thread is chock full o' straw men. Other than maybe - maybe - Billy Beane, are there any GMs that have ever remotely suggested that the human element should be removed entirely from scouting/player analysis?

I'd be shocked if Hahn doesn't have his own stat-heads pouring over data as I type this.

Every front office is using Sabermetrics to some extent.

So really, this boils down to the fact that Hawk - an announcer who doesn't have any input in scouting/drafting - hates numbers. What's the big deal? It's idiotic but it doesn't impact the Sox in any way other than it's mildly embarrassing.
