Basketball Prospectus: Unfiltered Everything Else is Fluff.

Thanks, Joe

First off, Happy New Year to all of our readers. May 2010 bring you everything you want, even if it’s impossible for every team with cap space to sign LeBron James.

Joe Sheehan‘s column yesterday was his last for Baseball Prospectus. Given the low-key way Joe made his exit, he probably won’t appreciate this post, but whatever. His contributions to Basketball Prospectus, save for a handful of columns on college hoops and his “From 344 to 65” series leading up to the NCAA Tournament, have mostly been behind the scenes. The first two years of this site’s existence, however, have been shaped by Joe’s guidance in his role as managing editor. He helped compile an excellent group of writers (and me) and turned us loose, and I’d like to hope the results speak for themselves. Joe’s schedule got too busy for the basketball site this season, so we’ve been operating as a committee, but his influence lives on.

On a personal standpoint, Joe’s guidance has been invaluable as I’ve made the transition into a larger role at BBP. Beyond that, it’s been a pleasure working with someone I’ve been reading for a decade. Thanks for everything, Joe, and best of luck whatever the future holds.
