Thank you all for allowing me to cover the Colorado Rockies in 2015. But, alas, all good things must come to an end. (Or put more optimistically, change is good!)

This will, unfortunately, be my last post on the Colorado Rockies over here at RoxPile.com under the purview of FanSided. I know! Rejoice! The terrible editor has been defeated! (Kidding.) More on the reason for leaving in a second, but before I get there, let me say this…
FanSided was (and will always be) the first place I got to blog significantly about the Rockies in any way, shape or form — really, one of my first forays into digital media as it relates specifically to sports, since I primarily covered TONS of entertainment in my past (and continue to do so today; talk to me about the Kardashians, man).
I love what they are doing here at FanSided, and it’s a direct reflection of a broader industry trend that you are going to see more and more and more in the coming years: fan-based content, and fan-geared content. Forget the talking heads who are inaccessible on sports shows that are impersonal on technologies that will soon become relatively obsolete (sorry, cable TV, it’s true).
Sports is heading the way of the fan on the Internet, and FanSided is one of the organizations spearheading that movement (hell, they’ve been on the front lines for years; they’re not new to this).
They do a phenomenal job giving editors like myself, and other writers, the freedom with which to deliver whatever kind of content best fit a specific audience, as in the Rockies’ content here on this blog for the past year. (And, I’d be remiss if I didn’t say the very high quality Colorado Rockies content from my predecessor in this role, too — Mr. Hayden Kane.)
There’s a lot of good stuff over here at FanSided. You should follow what they are doing here, and keep up with what’s going on with RoxPile, and the network in general. There’s quite a bit of really, really good content in their divisions.
As for me, I’ve taken the Assistant Editor gig over at Purple Row, so I’m not going very far — at least not as far as Colorado Rockies stuff is concerned. If you want to keep track of me outside of just baseball stuff, too, you can do that (and I would love to hear from you!):

Most importantly, for the future of this site, If you’d like to write for RoxPile (or if you know somebody who does!), you can go here, or fill out an application directly right here. It’s a great gig and something you should consider if you have writing experience and love baseball and/or the Colorado Rockies.
Again, thank you for 2015. We’ll always have a not-100-loss season…
