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.

With left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz going for the Padres, Dave Roberts has elected to dramatically re-think the lineup. There are some aspects of this that I really…
