Welcome back - Kurt
Hello all! So glad to be back here at Bless You Boys. We at TPR have missed you. For those of you who have been longing for your prospect fix, don’t worry. We’re back to help. If we haven’t met, my name is Jordan Gorosh (@jgoro8 on twitter), and I am the new lead prospect writer at Tiger Prospect Report. I have been on board since the beginning, but will be taking over full time as the head guy. We have reconfigured our staff a bit, so let me reintroduce you to everyone:
Nick Galea is “second in command” if you will. Nick handles stock up/stock down stuff, will be a guest with me on the 20 grade podcast (it’s coming back, don’t worry), and will help me moderate our live chats.
Chad Hillman has been here for awhile, too. He will have some analytical pieces, along with some interviews in the coming months.
We’ve also added a few new writers to help round out the team.
James Nahikian will be doing our nightly recaps. He’s covered the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod league, and has written for a few Tiger blogs in the past. Down the road, James will be providing us with some analytical and scouting pieces as well. Hopefully, some future Tiger draft picks play on Bourne. We will have an expert.
Spencer Jackman has written for BYB before in a guest capacity. He will be providing some amazing statistical analysis pieces. Spencer works for baseball info solutions, which tracks, analyzes, and records data. Most of the stuff you see on FanGraphs comes from BIS.
Last, but not least, we have “senior curmudgeon” David Tokarz. If you’re not familiar with Mr. Tokarz, well, you’re in for a treat. There is probably going to be some rage, some yelling, and DEFINITELY some OBP. David has been a regular here on BYB. He won’t be writing with regularity, but has a great perspective on the game
Now, I do want to address a topic of inquiry. Brian Sakowski, who started TPR, as many of you know, has moved on. He is currently working for Perfect Game for the summer. Brian will no longer be writing for Tiger Prospect Report or writing about Tigers prospects. We at TPR wish Brian the best moving forward.
With all of that being said, we are ecstatic to be back, and look forward to providing the best possible Tiger minor league coverage on the net.
