Fantasy Baseball Analyst at Rotographs

Title: Fantasy Baseball Analyst at Rotographs
Date: January 21, 2016

Synopsis: I’ve started back up at Rotographs on what’s close to a full-time basis. I’ll be contributing at least four pieces a week and, once the season starts, be manning the larger side of their Roto Riteup platoon, providing a for-your-coffee breakdown of the prior day’s baseball happenings.

There will probably be too much volume for me to re-post everything here, so make sure to check out my Rotographs archive, in addition to this site, where anything I write for the Fangraphs side will definitely still appear.
