Casey Boguslaw has been writing about MLB since 2015 for several websites including The Hardball Times. He helped launch the website ROBaseball.com and served as managing editor until his departure to focus more on his own writing. Casey focuses heavily on Statcast data, putting his own unique spins on the information to help better understand the game for the audience. This has included much work with "barrels" - Statcast's term of the "best thing a hitter can do in contacting the baseball." He is the architect of "Barrel FIP," an adjustment to the common FIP (Field Independent Pitching) replacing home runs in the calculation with the more-predicting barrel stat. Casey graduated from the University of Illinois with a mathematics degree and still remains a passionate fan (and occasional writer) about the men's basketball team. He currently resides in Elmhurst, Illinois with his family.
