Doug Padilla’s chat:

Q: This may be a tough question for you to answer. But, do you have any idea how highly the White Sox FO values sabermetrics?

A: They put a solid emphasis on it. Not saying it’s the deciding factor in all their moves, but they have a guy that works closely with KW to break down those numbers.

“Solid emphasis” would be better than I thought. Hopefully, Padilla is right. Another interesting note:

Q: Whats the biggest difference between Walker and the new hitting coach?

A: Walk was huge on mechanics, passing along what he had learned over the years from some of the greats in the game. He coached the mental side as well, but the word is that Manto will stress the mental side even more. Manto wants you in a great frame of mind to hit, then he will go to work on mechanics.
