The Power of Chemistry (UPDATED)

Good article run by USA Today in August about the importance of chemistry in baseball. The author points out several teams who have outperformed preseason expectations and attributes at least a part of their success to the culture existing in each clubhouse. Influenced by my boss, I frankly think chemistry is a bit overrated and is a concept often bent by the media to fit a particular narrative, but there is something to be said about the atmosphere of accountability/mutual respect within a locker room and the positive on-field effects it can have.

“Every team goes through ups and downs, and I think with a better clubhouse and with better character, that allows you to handle the downs a lot. That’s the separator. So rather than the floor caving in on you, you stay afloat.
