Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus is now Jason Parks of the Chicago Cubs, per Jeff Passan:
The Cubs have hired Baseball Prospectus prospect maven and all-around mediocre guy @ProfessorParks as a scout.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) August 28, 2014
Parks is someone who Rangers fans know well, as he was writing about Ranger prospects for some time before joining BP. Parks is the second Ranger minor league writer to join a major league team in the last year, with Jason Cole having been hired by the Tampa Bay Rays last winter.
Congratulations to Professor Parks. We, as baseball fans, are worse off not to have him writing for us anymore.
