The Biz of BaseballWelcome to the New Year. Looking back at 2009, it's amazing to see how many people you come in contact with that help in an effort. That's the case with this thank you of sorts from the Business of Sports Network, and The Biz of Baseball. What's funny (or not, if I missed putting you on the list) is that as big as this list is, I'm sure there is someone I've missed. Don't be surprised if more are added over the course of the day...

The Biz of Baseball

Over the last few days, The Biz of Baseball, part of the Business of Sports Network, has seen a large increase in traffic due to several stories published. We're exceptionally flattered at the responce we have been getting, but it had come at a price.

If you have visited us over this time, you will have noticed that the site was either exceptionally slow, or that it had crashed, a sign that the heavy traffic was wreaking havoc on our servers.

Over the last 12 hours, we have migrated to a new dedicated server that will prevent this performance issue from happening in the future, and in baseball parlance, give us more power at the plate. Given that there plans for content after the first of the year that will drive traffic far higher, this move was bound to be in the works.

We appreciate your patience, and most of all, the fact that we are offering content that is driving more and more of you to our doorstep. We hope you return often, and thanks for visiting.

Sincerely,

Maury Brown

Baseball Winter Meetings

Trades, Trade Show, signings, MLB, MiLB, this is the stuff of the Baseball Winter Meetings that begin on Monday in Indianapolis.

The Biz of Baseball will be on the ground starting on Sunday eveving, reporting from the event. There will be breaking news as it happens, but also special reports the likes of which others won’t be covering (How is the economy hitting the industry as a whole? Are bat makers feeling the crunch (literally) with the focus on maple bats breaking? These, and more).

While the winter meetings are about the business of baseball, it’s also about baseball’s biggest get-together. Visit my personal blog SPORTS BASH (http://www.maurybrown.com) for stories on what’s happening in the halls and bars at the meetings. You never know who you might see.

I'll also be updating often on Twitter @BizballMaury

I also will be speaking at the Baseball Career Conference being hosted by Sports Management Worldwide, Lynn University, and Baseball America at 4:15pm. See the listing of speakers ranging from Ned Colletti to Jerry Crasnick to Jeff Idelson to Will Carroll along with registration info.

For more on the Baseball Winter Meetings, see this extensive primer: Inside the Baseball Winter Meetings

Upcoming Interview: MLB Network’s Victor Rojas
Written by Maury Brown   
Wednesday, 21 October 2009 14:25

Victor RojasIn our continuation of interviews with those that work in the business of baseball, The Biz of Baseball announces an upcoming interview with MLB Network on-air personality, Victor Rojas.

Rojas, the son of famed MLBer Cookie Rojas, joined MLB Network just before its launch on January 1 as a studio host following five years with the Texas Rangers broadcast team and an accomplished career as a Minor League player and General Manager, and a baseball analyst.

Rojas spent the past five seasons as a member of the Texas Rangers television and radio broadcast teams, providing both play by play as well as analysis. During the 2003 season, Rojas did radio play-by-play and analysis for Arizona Diamondbacks broadcasts. Prior to joining the Diamondbacks, Rojas spent two seasons doing television analysis and radio play-by-play for the Newark Bears of the Atlantic League, where he was also hired as the team's Assistant General Manager before becoming General Manager.

For the last two years Rojas served as the English television play-by-play broadcaster for the Caribbean World Series, shown on the YES network in 2006 from Venezuela and SNY network in 2007 from Puerto Rico. His father, former major league player and manager, Cookie Rojas provided color analysis both occasions.

Rojas was a pitcher in the then, California Angels organization. He was on the Florida Marlins baseball staff in 1993 and served as pitching coach at Rio Grande in the Texas-Louisiana League in 1994. He played college baseball at the College of the Desert in Palm Springs, California, and Lewis-Clark State University in Lewiston, Idaho.

Look for the interview shortly on The Biz of Baseball
