A few weeks back, Will and I had posted that we were looking for someone who could help us with some technical tasks that we were either too busy or too lazy to do. We had a number of applicants for the position and we thank you all who applied. Our decision was to go with Ryan Wilkins. If the name sounds familiar, Ryan has written at Baseball Prospectus in the past. We are excited to have him on board here and you will see his writing on different topics here occasionally, in addition to his contributions behind the scenes, making the Juice site be the juiciest it can be. Below this post is a new article Ryan has written on the Oakland A’s that both Will and I are proud to post here. I’m sure the topic will please some of the purists who are offended by our discussion of other topics besides baseball. Enjoy.
