Prior to the 2016 season, Dustin approached Stacie and me to see if we’d like to join the team here at Dodgers Digest. I was extremely flattered, to say the least. DoDi was my favorite Dodger blog, and I had so much respect for the work that Chad, Daniel, Dustin and Mike did here. To be asked to step in for Mike when he left for MLB.com was a huge honor.
Things have come somewhat full circle now as, like the guy I originally stepped in for, I am now departing DoDi for a full-time position with MLB.com. My role as a producer there is being expanded to include reporting duties next year. I wasn’t able to contribute much to DoDi in 2018 as it was and now, I’ll have even less ability to do so. Thus, I’m afraid this means my time here is officially up.
That said, I’ll still be around on Twitter and such, and there’s a good chance you’ll actually be seeing a lot more of me. My work over the past season for MLB.com was exclusively behind the scenes; this season, I’ll also be writing and filling in on game coverage as needed. I’ll be on Dodgers coverage from time to time, so look out for that, if you feel so inclined!
I want to thank everyone here for your support over the past few years. The last three seasons of Dodger baseball have been a thrilling, frustrating, heartbreaking experience, and I’m glad I had this group to go through it with. I also want to thank Alex, Allan, Chad, Daniel, Dustin and Stacie for being awesome to work with — I’ve learned so much from each of them, and look forward to seeing what else they have in store here.
I hope 2019 is good to all of you, and I hope it’s good to the Dodgers as well.
