Krush Performance: The Interesting, The Historic, & The Confusing

KP - PHOTO FOR RI SHOWCould there be a massive downside to big data, analytics, and statistics? The numbers are impacting the sports we love and perhaps not for the better. They are impacting not only how we play sports but how we are developing athletes.

Today, we look at some of the storylines coming out of Major League Baseball:

  • The Interesting: Theo Epstein stepping down from the Cubs and his comments on the impact of analytics.
  • The Historic: Marlins Hire Kim Ng – the first female GM.
  • The Confusing: Robinson Cano….WHY?????

We also dive into international sport as the World Junior Hockey Championships get set to kick off in Edmonton. Could there be implications for the 2021 Olympic Games here?

We’ll take a look at the Krush NFL Teams to watch this year. How are they rating and are there any surprises as we head into the Thanksgiving weekend?

Finally, we share the results of our Brain Game audience Poll. We asked should “The Brain” be one of the top priorities for setting our athletes up for future success? The Results are not what I thought they would be.

It’s a jam-packed Thanksgiving Episode of Krush Performance.
