About The Authors
A 24-year-old graduate from the University of Texas at Tyler, Joey has written for Baseball Time in Arlington since February 2007. Aside from his fervent passion for Texas Rangers baseball, he also enjoys jazz and hip-hop music, and has had a life-long fascination with severe weather.
His analysis is featured in John Burnson's Graphical Player 2011, now available on Amazon.com, as well as in the Maple Street Press 2011 Rangers Annual, and he also contributes a weekly column to the preeminent online baseball publication, Baseball Prospectus.
Josh remembers the beer guys running dry on Bat Day at Arlington Stadium. His favorite Ranger was, for a short, sweet while, Dave Hostetler. Josh was showered with change after a ninth-inning Juan Gonzalez grand slam at Fenway Park, and later called a Beanpot-clinching game from the press box there. He rooted against Ichiro when he played for the Orix Blue Wave, and coaxed a hat-tip from Julio Franco when he played for the Chiba Lotte Marines. He repeatedly tried and failed to teach Zambian kids how to play baseball.
Now he lives in Baltimore, where his antipathy toward Sidney Ponson has won over the O's faithful. In his day job, he conducts primarily qualitative research in a numbers-dominated field. In baseball discussions, he's been labeled a "stathead." He’s convinced that the SABR/Gut divide can be bridged. He can be contacted at the above e-mail address, especially to make plans to have a Resurrection at the best bar in America.
A graduate of Baylor University, Prashanth is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in biochemistry at Texas A&M University.
Contradicting the notion that you have to be a journalist, lawyer, student, or future baseball executive to blog about the Rangers, David is a scientist with strong interests in investing, business, and team sports. A life-long fan of the Rangers, David’s recent elevated interest in the team -- his wife insists it is obsession -- stems from the team’s decision to build the right way (i.e., from the ground up).
Using some of the methods that he routinely uses to analyze biological systems, patient populations, and businesses, David’s primary research and writing efforts for BBTIA will be directed toward understanding key aspects of building a winning baseball organization. If you have a baseball question that you can’t quite answer, a need for a database of player information, or an interest in engaging in a baseball discussion or research collaboration, please feel free to contact David at the above e-mail address.
