It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I convey the message in the above headline. It is a groundbreaking day in the baseball media world, and I'm proud BDD can even be associated with BP. As you know Baseball Prospectus recently purchased Baseball Digest Daily and hired me as their CFO. Our colleagues at BP have been nothing but supportive and helpful during our transformation from independent web site to Baseball Prospectus affiliate. And while we don't have anywhere near the clout of our parent company, we all now have a new sense of pride as we strive to publish quality content like that of Christina, Will, Kevin, Joe, John, Jay, Alex, Marc and the rest of the BP staff.
As written on "Unfiltered,"
The Winter Meetings are the baseball industry's opportunity not simply to meet and make a few changes, it's also the place where a lot of the game's affiliated institutions make moves of their own. That took a different form this morning, as representatives of Baseball Prospectus were informed that the organization's application to the Baseball Writers' Association of America had been approved, making the two columnists that BP applied for, Will Carroll and Christina Kahrl, members of the BBWAA.Congratulations everyone!
