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.

You can find him spending too much time in the comments section or on Twitter.
