BP Unfiltered

Manufacturing Promotions

by Dave Pease

I'm pleased to announce that Colin Wyers has joined Baseball Prospectus full-time as Director of Statistical Operations.  

Short-term, this means more fun work on baking a better defensive metric and an expanded presence in the blog section of the site, but Colin's primary role will be overhauling all aspects of Baseball Prospectus' statistical products and processes, from the raw data feeds to the finished products.  For the last few weeks he has been evaluating everything that we do on that front, and we will be making many changes based on his findings.  Stay tuned for more on that subject.

Fantastic. Congrats, Colin! Since I just renewed, I'm very excited to know Colin will be around for a while.

Though I have to admit, I'm a touch disappointed this headline didn't lead to more news about minor league promotions such as the Beer Batter discussed in these pages yesterday.
