Luke Smailes

Luke was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago and is a college student and collegiate baseball player at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. While playing, Luke also leads the team's baseball analytics program that has successfully translated methods used in MLB to the Division-III game. As a result of this work, Luke's writing is analytically motivated, but will also focus on trades, roster construction, and offseason plans. For a White Sox organization that was late to the party in the analytical realm, their recent progression provides ample opportunity to critically analyze their decision making.
