This is great news. Other people will have all kinds of good things to say about Rob's work, but I just wanted to give a personal anecdote. In one of Rob's ESPN chats, maybe five years ago, someone asked him what it took to have lunch with him. Rob said something like: "Just pay for lunch." I happened to be in Portland for work, so I emailed Rob and offered to buy him lunch. He met up with me and talked baseball (and college basketball) for two hours. In my books, that makes him a great guy.
