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.
Although he’s been exiled to Wisconsin, Jim Gardner continues to follow the Los Angeles Angels just as rabidly as he did while growing up in the shadows of Angels Stadium. Since joining the staff at Halos Heaven in 2008, Jim has spent his time blogging about the boys in red while creating the occasional "A Day at the Park" comic under the screen name "WiHaloFan." When he’s not doing something Angels-centric, he can be found in his backyard chasing away deer and cursing at the snow.
