New Post at BP Wrigleyville: The Cubs in the Age of the Auteur GM

I’m thrilled to announce that Baseball Prospectus’s Cubs site, BP Wrigleyville, has invited me to write the occasional Cubs-focused blog post for them! My first effort, The Cubs’ Curse in the Age of the Auteur GM, looks at how the presence of a genius GM, in this case the Cubs’ Theo Epstein (formerly of the Red Sox), reduces the focus we give to the team itself, and how that may, for some non-Cubs fans, lessen the impact of the Cubs’ first championship in over a century, just when it’s most likely to finally happen.

There’s another blog post to be had about the experience of writing for the fans of a team when you’re not one of those fans, but first I’ll have to see how this one goes.
