Moving On

With the draft over, I thought it was a good time to make this decision.   I will no longer be writing for Phuture Phillies going forward, and will be moving on to other projects.  I have thought a lot about this, and I have enjoyed writing here, but in the end I think it is a good change going forward.  Gregg will continue to run this site, and there will still be great content by the writers here.

I want to thank Gregg for the opportunity to write here over the past year and a half.  I have enjoyed my time here.  And I would like to thank everyone who has read my stuff and interacted both in the comments and on twitter, it has been awesome being a part of this community here.

I will continue to write about prospects, the location of that writing will come together at some point soon, and I am excited about the future.  You can always find me on twitter @Matt_Winkelman

  5. bit shocking. Was it the ’14 Phillies draft that was last straw Matt? Enjoyed your post.

  10. Thank you Matt for your contribution to the site. Thank you for graciously offering your knowledge and insight.

  11. I enjoyed your work, Matt. I’ll miss reading your stuff. Good luck in your future endeavors.

  12. I’m bummed. But one thing I’m happy about it that it seems like you’re leaving this site a lot stronger than you found it. When James quit, it really seemed like the whole thing might die, but you and Greg and Brad and others have really built the community into something much more durable. So I really appreciate all your work, and I hope to continue to read your stuff, whatever it is that you’re doing. Here’s hoping you get paid for it!

  13. Good luck, thanks for all you’ve done. I guess this site has a certain burnout factor to it. It fills a needed niche and your writing has always been something I’ve looked forward to.

  14. Can’t thank you enough for all you’ve contributed to the PP community both here and through twitter. You filled a huge void after James left and we were fortunate to have you for as long as we did. Cheers to you in your next opportunity.

  15. Thanks and best of luck, Matt. As others have conveyed, your insight and informed opinions will be missed.

  16. Matt, you and I haven’t always agreed on everything but I generally respected your point of view because you always had a rational reason for your opinion. Good luck in your endeavors.

  17. Nah, you’re not allowed to leave. I have decided. We’ll double your pay. From $0 to $0x2. How’s that? No? Triple then – $0x3.

    That’ll do the trick, I suspect.

  18. Really sorry to see you go, Matt. Your insight, analytic ability and level-headedness will be missed.

  19. Say it ain’t so???? The Phuture just won’t be the same. Best of luck in any and every thing you do.

  20. Sad to see you go but I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of you … I’m a big fan of your work and I look forward to your next endeavor. Good luck!!

  21. Thanks much for your work, time, and write ups. Good luck with ur next endeavor. Ohh especially the time

  22. Sorry to see you go Matt. I enjoyed reading your analysis. I’ll certainly check out your next venture.
