About 17 months ago, it was my privilege to take over ownership and management of Disciples of Uecker, following in the very large and imposing footsteps of JP Breen and Jack Moore. I knew going in that my tenure wasn’t going to feature me as the same sort of in-front presence that my predecessors had been, but I knew that we had the staff to do some great things.
Maintaining the tradition of thoughtful analysis and good writing established by my predecessors was priority number one for me when I took over. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Vineet Barot, Steve Garczynski, Curt Hogg, Brad Krause, Jonathan Judge, Jaymes Langrehr, Adam Wieser and especially Nicholas Zettel over that time, I think it’s fair to say we did that, especially early on. I really cannot thank them enough for everything they’ve done.
That being said, the time has come for me to hand over the keys to the blog to help move it on into the future. I didn’t have to look very far to find the right person for the task. I’ve known Nicholas Zettel for years now, going back to old message board days and continuing on through multiple different blogs right up to the present day here at DoU. His research based perspective on the game of baseball and the Brewers particularly has provided a unique voice to the blog for years. I have the utmost confidence in his ability to further improve the blog in the weeks, months and years to come.
I also want to say a big thank you to all of you, the readers and commenters. Without you, we’re just talking to ourselves here, and your feedback here and on social media has been amazing. I’ll still be around, contributing from time to time, secure in the knowledge that the blog is in good hands now and into the future.
Thanks for everything,
