BP Announcements

Lindbergh and Evans Help Chart New Course for BP

by Joe Hamrahi

Every so often I have the pleasure of relaying some really great news that will help shape the future of Baseball Prospectus. Today is one of those days.

I'm thrilled to announce that, effective immediately, Ben Lindbergh has been promoted to Editor-In-Chief of Baseball Prospectus. Ben leaves Bloomberg Sports to focus his efforts full-time on BP and maintain responsibility for the day-to-day management of all website content. Ben recently served as the site's Managing Editor. 

Lindbergh has contributed to three BP annuals, ​Extra Innings​, ESPN Insider, and Yankees Magazine, and he served as assistant editor of BP2011 and editor of the two-volume Best of Baseball Prospectus collection. Ben has also interned for multiple MLB teams, and was inducted into the Baseball Writers' Association of America in December.

Also, starting this month, former Los Angeles Dodgers GM, major league executive and player agent Dan Evans will become a regular contributor to Baseball Prospectus. Dan will be writing, tweeting, participating in chats and appearing on podcasts.

Dan Evans has been in the game for 30 years and has been a decision-maker as both a club senior executive and as a player agent. A pioneer in using technology for baseball analysis, Evans orchestrated a complete and successful rebuilding of the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise during his time as their general manager and has the second-best won-loss record (.548) of any Dodgers GM.

While a DePaul University junior, Evans secured an internship with the Chicago White Sox and worked there for nearly 20 years. In addition, he also worked for the Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs during his career, and was a baseball analyst for the Comcast Sports Network in Chicago.
 
Please join me in congratulating Ben and welcoming Dan!

Congratultions to Ben and welcome to Dan!

As an aside, my subscription was up for renewal about two weeks ago. As of about two months ago, I was pretty sure I was cancelling (for a lot of reasons).

What kept me around (in no particular order):

The return of This Week in Quotes

The return of Jay Jaffe (at least part-time)

The return of Russell Carleton

The Scoresheet fantasy tools


A good number of those reasons are still there, but at least now there's some more light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks.

Thanks for renewing, Richard. If you'd like to let me know about things that you do or don't want to see at BP, email me at blindbergh@baseballprospectus.com. And that goes for any and all of our readers.

Dan Evans is quite an addition. I would love to see him discuss how the organization of front offices' personnel, information management, and decision processes have evolved since his early days working for Roland Hemond.

Great to see Evans on board. Tell him to stop wearing sandals and flannel.
