Blue Jays, Cubs, Mets, and Royals by BruceM

Question 4

Who became the Boston Red Sox "director of pitching analysis and development" in 2015, a few years removed from a five-season career with the Mets and Royals? He was traded to Kansas City for Ambiorix Burgos, and he outpitched Stephen Strasburg in a 1-0 game for Strasburg's first major league loss, but you probably know him best from his interest in advanced metrics. (According to the New York Times, he's the one who introduced Zack Greinke to Fielding Independent Pitching.)
