Goodbye Professor

Our dear friend and colleague Jason Parks announced today that he is leaving Baseball Prospectus and more importantly the internet to take up a scouting job with Chicago Cubes. We here at the BBQ have a special place in our heart for Professor Parks as he was the man who gave us our start. Last June we had about 83 followers on Twitter and working in baseball was merely a pipe dream. We met Jason at the Baseball Prospectus event in DC. He thought we were funny and tweeted out that people should give us a look. Eighty-three followers became 160, which became 1,600, which became 16,000. We, and many other members of the baseball internet community, owe so much to Jason because he gave us a shot before anybody. Jason, that eye for talent will treat you well in the real world. Best of luck Professor, your presence will be missed.

#RIPJason
