Hi everyone. As you may have noticed, we have a new contributor to our site, jessef. Jesse is my brother and the Faramir to my Boromir. If you haven't already seen it, you can check out his first, in-depth article on the Jays offense thus far right here.
Anyway, with a new contributor and so many new faces around the site, we thought it would be a good idea for us to introduce ourselves since what we're really building here is a community and not just a blog. So, without further adeiu, here are your happy hosts, and feel free to introduce yourselves along the same, similar, or different lines in the comments!
