One of the last aspects of baseball which can’t be measured is clubhouse chemistry.
There are no high-speed cameras, body sensors, or monitors that can gauge the mood of a clubhouse. Chemistry develops – or doesn’t — naturally between teammates
The Pittsburgh Pirates have not seemed to have problems in their clubhouse since Derek Shelton replaced Clint Hurdle as manager before the 2020 season. The room hasn’t been like in 2019 when there were openly warring factions among the players and staff.
However, the construction of the Pirates’ roster and their sickly winning percentage have made it hard for great chemistry to truly develop.
