So Long, From Sabernomics

Well folks, I’m afraid it’s come to an end. What started as an experiment nearly seven years ago became more than I anticipated. For the past seven years I’ve had a place to explore my whimsical ideas on baseball in public, and I’ve enjoyed having the outlet.

The New Year offers a good time for change. My work responsibilities are expanding, and I’d like to drink my morning coffee without my hands on the keyboard. I still have Twitter to pass on links and opinions, and that’s all I want to do for a while. My research continues, but I won’t be blogging about it. I might write an occasional article in other places, but it’s time to move on from the blogosphere. The website will remain for the time being.

I’d like to thank everyone out there for reading my work. I wish you the best.

J.C. :-)

    J.C. – The baseball blogosphere will miss you. Your research was interesting and at times controversial. I thank you for being the second Designated Hitter at Baseball Analysts. Your Mazzone Effect Revisited article in March 2005 was well-researched and thought provoking. Best wishes going forward.

    I can only offer the baseball equivalent of “So long and thanks for all the fish.” Your weblog was interesting and informative; I’ll hope to come across your writings elsewhere. Best of luck in whatever you do.
