Astros hire Baseball Prospectus' Kevin Goldstein
The Astros, after hiring BP's Mike Fast and interviewing ESPN.com's Keith Law, have now hired prospect guru Kevin Goldstein.
I cannot say I could ever see the Twins following in the Astros' footsteps but I like the direction Houston is taking.@OverTheBaggy

I think it's pretty cool. Certainly not the first 'blogger/writer' type to find his way into a big league front office, but always fun to see that kind of thing happen.
Parker could be the Twins director of video coordination.

Hiring a baseball writer/analyst is a great idea depending on the role. Pretty easy to check on his accumen simply by doing an internet search on the guys blogs and articles over the past X amount of years.
Unfortunately I agree with Parker though. The Twins hiring away from the family tree and sabermetric geeks to boot, probably isn't in the cards.

See, I was going to say the Twins should hire Seth, what with his extensive knowledge of the prospects. Even Rantz doesn't know all of them like Seth does.@OverTheBaggy

Meanwhile... I keep waiting for any of the 30 teams to call me and all I hear is crickets.
I win my fantasy leagues almost every year.
It's almost like the Astro's are looking at people that are connected in some way be it a blog or analyst, ex-major league player or someone with front office experience.
I'm trying not to be frustrated or discouraged. I'll keep waiting for the call.
