I'd like to congratulate Steven Goldman on being named the lead baseball writer for Bleacher Report! As announced, today will be Steve's last official day with Baseball Prospectus.

Steven Goldman's name has been synonymous with BP for many years now and his accomplishments have been many. Not only has Steve written hundreds of great articles, he's edited Mind Game, It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over, and the soon to be released Extra Innings: More Baseball Between the Numbers. Of course, Steve has also been instrumental in the development of the Baseball Prospectus annual, either as editor or co-editor of the book from 2006-2011.

As Editor-in-Chief of BP over the past year, Steven has helped recruit some of our up and coming stars such as Jason Parks, Derek Carty, and Daniel Rathman. He's continued to develop the team of editors and even co-hosted MLB Roundtrip with Baseball Prospectus on SiriusXM MLB Network Radio each week with Kevin Goldstein.

Steve will leave a lasting mark on BP and his work surely will not be forgotten. And don't be surprised if you see a Steven Goldman article pop up on every once in a while!

We will announce some exciting news next week about our editorial succession plan, but today is about Steve, and only Steve.

Please join me in thanking Steve for his many contributions to Baseball Prospectus and wishing him all the best in his new position at Bleacher Report.
