Hi. My name is Mike Fast, and this is my site to post comments and data about baseball. I’ve been a Kansas City Royals fan since 1986, and I was introduced to my love of baseball analysis by Bill James through his Baseball Abstract series.
I have not been regularly updating this site since 2007 and do not plan any further updates. As of February 2012, I am employed by the Houston Astros.
I wrote for Baseball Prospectus from October 2010 to January 2012. My Baseball Prospectus article list can be found here. I wrote for the Hardball Times from March 2008 to October 2010. My Hardball Times article list can be found here (listed by year).
I wrote for MVN’s Statistically Speaking blog from December 2007 to February 2008. The old MVN site is defunct, but the StatSpeak articles have been copied here. I’ve also republished some of my pieces from StatSpeak on this blog.
