Hi, I’m Adam Koplik. I am entering my junior year in high school in upstate New York, and live and breath sports. Coincidentally, while I love watching, writing, and talking about sports, I am a deer in the headlights when I’m on a field. I am a die-hard Yankee fan, who loves the hate. However, Aaron Boone, Gary Sanchez, James Paxton, and Giancarlo Stanton hate is not tolerated. Baseball, and sports as a whole, mean so much to me. From the great moments I’ve witnessed in person, highlighted by the Didi Gregorius AL Wild Card home run, to the bonds baseball has created in my family and friends, I owe so much to the great sport. I understand that the sport has changed, and stats like WAR, wOBA, wRC+, and FIP, are understandably changing the game for the better. As a whole, I hope to pretty much give a different perspective in my writing, from a moderate view on analytics and traditional stats, while also being enjoyable.
Hope you enjoy!
