Articles by Daniel Brim

Daniel Brim grew up in the Los Angeles area and remains a Dodger fan despite currently residing in Salem, MA. As an engineer, he’s fascinated by the math and science behind the game of baseball, which probably explains a lot. He started “Blog To The Score” in late 2013 to dig deeper into the numbers behind the Dodgers. In its brief lifespan, it gained attention from local and national media. You can find him spending too much time in the comments section or on Twitter.

The Grant Dayton Show

Grant Dayton came out of nowhere, almost. Last summer, the Dodgers received him from the Marlins in exchange for first round draft pick/bust/Dustin’s favorite pitcher Chris Reed.
