Who knew former third-sacker Mike Pagliarulo was such an erudite egghead? From an interview with (sorry, subscription-only) Baseball Prospectus about his cutting-edge scouting consultancy, The Baseline Group:

DL: Scouting has long been considered an inexact science. Are you saying that you can make it more exact?

MP: What I’m saying is that scouting is a science of empiricism unlike the naturalism or experimentation type of sciences currently within the game. My type of evaluation is a mixture of sciences, and science is merely a system of acquiring knowledge based on the level of expertise.
