About D.J. Short


I never intended to have a career writing about baseball. I simply wanted to do something that I enjoyed to pass the time and maybe make a few dollars along the way. Nearly seven years later, I’m still here. You can find my work at Rotoworld and HardballTalk on NBCSports.com.

I grew up as a Mets fan in Maryland, surrounded by Orioles fans and later on, by Phillies fans. I was lucky enough to have WWOR on my cable lineup in the late 80s and early 90s to watch the likes of Gary Carter, Keith Hernandez, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, David Cone, Bret Saberhagen, John Franco, and Howard Johnson. Those teams didn’t live up to expectations, but I couldn’t get enough of them.

There was a certain point where I replaced my passion for baseball with music and I pursued a career in that industry during and after college, both from the writing side and from the business side. Maybe it was nostalgia, but baseball eventually pulled me back in.

I cover baseball from a more traditional perspective over at HardballTalk while my work at Rotoworld is fantasy-centric. I’m well versed in analytics and try to take in as much information as possible in order to best serve my audience.
