    Tim,
    The problem is if you have a “bone on bone” situation…as everyone seems to keep saying….it will only get worse. It won’t get better. But, like I said, I’m fine with the pick. Low risk and potential high reward. So what if the kid won’t be able to walk by the time he’s 28 as long as we get a few good years out of him, right? Lol

    • D says:

      Yeah we m also kinda feeling that last statement too I hate that for him but its his decision when to retire

    • jahndoh says:

      That comment tugs at my heartstrings, but I’m compelled to point out the kid WANTS to play football, he’s not being forced, so I don’t feel too guilty. lol…

      Curtis Martin played at a high level on the same thing at the end of his career until he couldn’t anymore. It’s not my call, it’s Jay Ajayi’s desire to play. 😉

    As a long time A’s fan (and I know Rhino can relate) I’ve longed for us to implement a world class analytics program. Like many of you I really enjoyed this 5th round and I think it ushers in a new era where we build this team by having an advantage over most other NFL teams in the 4th and 5th round. The early round players are so uber analyzed that there’s not a lot of room for an analytical program to gain an edge, but just like Billy Beane, it’s the meat and potatoes of a roster where our guys seem to excel. Here’s hoping this is the beginning of something great!

    D – George Theodore (The Stork) and Don Hahn had a major collision in the outfield at Shea Stadium
    *****************
    The Top 5: Yankees’ And Mets’ Most Gruesome On-Field Injuries

    1. The Collisions, 1973 & 2005: Ok, we’re going to cheat and lump both of these together. The Mets may have never had a no-hitter but they do lead the league in horrifying collisions by their outfielders. Just a couple of months after the Braves almost killed Matlack, Atlanta was at it again. In the seventh inning (again), with one run already in, giving Atlanta a 4-3 lead and Frank Tepedino on third after a George Theodore error, Ralph Garr smashed a shot to left-center. Center fielder Don Hahn and Theodore, both running full speed for the ball, crashed into each other. As both lay writhing on the ground, Garr sped around the bases with an inside-the-park home run. The Braves went on to win, 9-8, but not before both Met outfielders were carried off on a stretcher. Theodore, famously nicknamed the Stork, fractured his hip and only appeared in one more game that season, as a pinch-hitter, along with two plate appearances in the World Series. Hahn was back in action a few days later. Theodore only played one more season with the Mets, ending his two-year career.

    Jahn I’d go even further to say their analytics showed you had found 1 and 2 talent and then a cluster of 4-5th round talent so they scukped the picks accordingly. I don’t think its just that they will live in the 5th every year I think that this year its what their analytics dictated

  9. Mike E. says:

    Gerod Holliman still available as well.

  10. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    Jahn I also replied to you above and then summarized again in a reply to someone else later though I did call you Hahn.

  11. Randy says:

    Kahn,
    I was listening to my local sports radio show this past week. They had on a guy who runs a scouting service, and they were talking about analytics. It was interesting to hear what he had to say. But, he kept saying over and over…..that you can’t measure things like heart, attitude or work ethic…and that is why analytics will only ever give you part of the picture. All they are really assessing is athletic ability…not whether or not they’ll be good football players. I don’t know much about analytics, but it was a very interesting conversation.
    ***
    He also said they actually tell the guys they test that something horrible has happened to one of their loved ones while they’re testing them to see how they respond. Will they get up and leave the testing or stick with it? I found that really interesting.

    Artis Payne just selected

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    New blog up!
    Day 3 picks Doozy!

  14. Mike E. says:

    LOL PIGGY!!

  15. Mike E. says:

    OK, I missed most of this draft – Why don’t we have a 6th RD pick anymore?

  16. Tim Knight says:

    Randy, analytics is statistical information gathered through computers which weren’t available not too long ago. Hickey has said it’s a tool but you always go back to the tape. It’s really about meshing the two together.

  17. Randy says:

    Lol. Damn iPad

    I’ll buy that. I do think what the analytics advantage will show itself more readily later in the draft though. So where the sweet spot in the draft marrys to the best advantage gained, that’s where it’ll find us a hall of famer. 🙂 (sorry, it’s draft day. how can not be optimistic!)

  20. jahndoh says:

    LMAO!!! I don’t know if I’m Jahn, Hahn, or Kahn at this point.

    Anyone watch Parks and Rec?
