Other thought is he can talk "change, change, change", and I think "different players".  But Theo is exec of a big organization and a believer in organizational impact.  So he might view changes in manager; in interface between analytics and scouting; in minor-league minor-league coaching structure; in introducing team practices; in adding a coach; in getting McLeod out of scouting and development; in improving implementation of pitch lab; and in changing how much time the manager spends in the clubhouse as "big changes".  Even if the core personnel on the roster change not so much.

It's hard to believe that you reached that conclusion after listening to the press conference.  Seems to me that flies in the face of everything he said about the players. Depending, I suppose, on what you mean by "core personnel."
