The MLB.com refuses to admit to Kevin's existance.

Well, that's a more encouraging headline than "Goldstein shies away from new role upon discovering he works for the Astros."

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how old Kevin Goldstein is?

Nah, he's putting his money where his mouth is. Think about it....if YOU were looking for a way to prove YOUR insight, wouldn't the Astros be a PERFECT fit????

Here's hoping he kicks ass in his new job!

Believe he's about 44.

Well, he's not 43 because that's my age, but I remember he was only a year or two off.

I was excited to hear when Kevin got the gig with the Astros, especially because their Low-A affiliate was down the road in Lexington. Was hoping he might do some scouting here and I could meet him in person, fedora and all. Then the affiliate shuffle happened and now Lexington is a Royals affiliate. Oh well - I'l always have my memories of lattes with Steven Goldman at the Barnes and Noble in Ellicott City...

Does "pro-scouting" mean minor leaguers, major leaguers, or both?

Two people can't be the same age?

Minors. Advance scouting is usually what they call the major league scouting part.
   14. Mike Fast Posted: December 24, 2012 at 10:31 PM (#4332102)
Pro scouting typically covers both majors and minors. It is focused on "how good is this player?" (or how good will he be in the future) and "would he be worth acquiring?"

Advance scouting covers upcoming opponents of the major-league team. It is focused on traits, patterns, and tendencies of the opposition in order to prepare the team.
