Thanks for stopping by. I’m the author of Diamond Dollars: The Economics of Winning in Baseball, the President of SABR, and a consultant to MLB teams. I also teach in the graduate Sports Management programs at Columbia University and Manhattanville College. My research, analysis and writing falls into the category of baseball analytics—using information and data to shed light on the complex issues that baseball teams face when considering trades, free agent signings, evaluating playing talent, and other roster decisions. I’ll use this blog to share my insights and analysis on these and other baseball related topics.
