Brendan Miller

Lead writer, Baseball analytics lead

Brendan was indoctrinated into Cubs fandom at an early age by his grandfather, who was a Wrigley Field peanut vendor in the 1940s. Although Brendan moved to Phoenix, Arizona early in life, he still spent summers in the suburbs of Chicago hitting dingers in the backyard and watching his favorite player, Mark Prior, injure himself annually. Launching backyard dingers wasn’t enough to draw the eyes of professional baseball scouts, and so, today, he’s completing his doctorate in neuroscience.
