UPDATE, 2:41 p.m.: Ah, just heard that Brian Cashman did not travel with everybody else. He wasn’t leaving New York until 1 p.m.
One of the weird things about the internet is getting to know somebody well without ever having actually met them.
So I’m pleased to say that Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus came over and introduced himself today. We had spoken on the phone or e-mailed dozens of times but never met.
If you aren’t reading Will and the people at BP, you’re missing out. They are great baseball fans who have literally helped change the way people evaluate teams and players. Will’s “Under The Knife” column on injuries is a must-read in the industry.
Will will be blogging from here, so check it out.
