Scouts are being replaced by analysts and algorithms, which have their limitations. What computer would have recommended Kenley Jansen of the Los Angeles Dodgers to be converted from a catcher to perhaps the greatest closer in the game? Or for Dave Stewart to be moved from catcher to the pitcher’s mound where he became a four-time 20-game winner? Or Trevor Hoffman to switch from shortstop to the brink of the Hall of Fame as a closer.

Well, that explains why Halladay crashed the plane.

But what explains why he took morphine, amphetamines, and Ambien, let alone had all three in his system at the time.

His nickname was Doc.

"That guy over there played with Ty Cobb," said Phillies bench coach Jimy Williams, pointing to Chase Utley. "He's been here before."  quoted in the Boston Globe
