If I wanted to ask a question like the following, which forum is best for it? Would it be on topic on CV?
I heard a manager refer to an employee as a "utility player" in the pre-moneyball sense. That means that the employee "[has] a wide breadth of skills and can work across many org's and disciplines", so it is quite a compliment.
Moneyball discarded the notion of a "utility player", and has much more strongly mathematically/statistically defined nomenclatures such as "slugging percentage" and "on-base percentage" (ref).
What is the post-moneyball meaning of or analog to a "utility player"?
If there is meaning, then how is a player identified as the new utility?
Are there post-moneyball SBR-metric metaphors that are viable for abstraction to team composition outside of baseball?
asked in Sports meta, they say try it. Asked in Sports. Will let you know how it goes. Thank you for direction
