Believe it or not, most of our writers didn't enter the world sporting an @baseballprospectus.com address; with a few exceptions, they started out somewhere else. In an effort to up your reading pleasure while tipping our caps to some of the most illuminating work being done elsewhere on the internet, we'll be yielding the stage once a week to the best and brightest baseball writers, researchers and thinkers from outside of the BP umbrella. If you'd like to nominate a guest contributor (including yourself), please drop us a line.
I was asked to write a brief biography, as well as a preamble. In bullet form:
- I co-authored The Book—Playing the Percentages in Baseball and run a blog of the same name.
- I'm a heavy proponent of sabermetrics and especially enjoy discussions where both sides can move upward and onward to the next issue.
- If you have a summary opinion with no evidence, I will call you on it.
- In the "a lot" v. "alot" debate, I stand with "alot." I also have a son and a dog, so I've got plenty of experience with bedtime stories and leashes. If you ask me about women, I can tell you the one, and only one, thing I've learned.
So, post your questions or thoughts below, and in a week or so, I'll do my best to provide my comments. I know some of you think there are "too many numbers," while others can't get enough of this stuff. I'm very interested to find out what the typical Baseball Prospectus reader is thinking about regarding quantitative and qualitative analysis, as well as critical thinking. Even feel free to unload your exasperated thoughts, and maybe I can placate you to some degree.
Editorial note: comments are now closed.
