Rob contributed to Primer with a series of articles that introduced a new pitching statistic called "Win Values," which estimates how much win-value a pitcher contributed to his team over the course of a season, over and above what a league-average pitcher would have contributed given the pitcher's game-by-game offensive support.
Rob graduated from Stanford's economics graduate program in the late 1980s. He worked for years as a management consultant helping businesses make better marketing and product development decisions, and currently works at the San Jose Mercury News, one of the leading newspapers in the San Francisco Bay Area.
A charter member of the Hall of Merit, Rob has not missed a single vote. In his voting, he is decidedly in the "career value" camp as he votes for players with long productive careers over players with short meteoric careers. He's opposed to "time-lining," except insofar as it reflects the disparate depths of talent pools associated with various eras throughout baseball history.
Rob's all-time favorite players are Willie Mays, Bruce Sutter, Ryne Sandberg, and Roger Clemens. He fervently believes that, from a career value perspective, Clemens is one of the best three pitchers of all time.
