Rob Neyer is an American baseball columnist currently with ESPN.com. Neyer began his career in baseball writing as a researcher for Bill James in the early 1990s. After a four year apprenticeship, he moved on to STATS Inc. before joining ESPN in 1996.
Neyer has joked, "I actually get paid by the number of readers who get really ticked off about what I write. Otherwise, I wouldn't be nearly so offensive." He is the author or co-author of several baseball books, including Baseball Dynasties.
