Farewell: What’s left of Charlie Faust | FOX Sports

Bummer. I’m very sorry to read this. JABO consistently put out quality analysis.

If you’ve read this far, I’m grateful. It’s not often that a big-time website publishes a story about a long-forgotten and -neglected grave, for the simple reason that the subject has limited appeal. So I’m grateful to you for reading, and I’m grateful to my employers for allowing me to publish nearly whatever I’ve liked here.

I’m also grateful to everyone who’s written for this site, including my co-conspirators Ken Rosenthal, Jon Paul Morosi, C.J. Nitkowski, Gabe Kapler, and Steve Hofstetter, not to mention contributors Alex Goot, Cee Angi, John Baker, Dan Epstein, David Golebiewski, Jeff Katz, Owen King, Bob Klapisch, Anna McDonald, Erik Malinowski, Ben Mankiewicz, and Meg Rowley, along with our many friends and collaborators at FanGraphs and Baseball Prospectus. I just wish I’d been able to find all of you more readers.

Oh, and I should mention Jeff Garlin, who never wrote for this site but did give me one really enjoyable hour at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market a couple of years ago.

I’m pleased to nominate Charlie Faust for the Wing of Amazing, where he would join (in my mind) luminaries like Bo Jackson and Jamie Moyer. But I’m sorry to report that this is the last JABO post. In the near term, I’ll still be writing occasionally for FOXSports.com’s MLB page. In the long term ... hey, who in hell knows? Life’s short, but somehow we’re living longer and longer all the time.
