USSM Welcomes New Writer
Derek and I are always looking for ways to make USSM better, and so when we identify an area that could use some help, we try to address it. With my impending marriage and what is sure to be a busy offseason coming up, it became clear to us that we could use another good writer to help carry the load.
So, I approached friend-of-the-blog Conor Glassey and he has agreed to begin writing for USSM. If you’ve been to any of the get togethers we’ve organized, you’ve met Conor, because he’s been to every single one. He’s a Seattle guy all the way, but he’s temporarily relocated to Durham, North Carolina, as he’s currently interning with Baseball America.
Conor has also written extensively for The Grand Salami magazine you see being sold outside Safeco Field and has maintained a blog of his own called Stop The Wave for the last few years. We’re happy to have Conor on board, and I’m sure you guys will enjoy the content he adds to the discussion.
Update from Conor: Alright, I’m home from work and would like to take a minute to introduce myself to everybody. I guess making my USSM debut by updating Dave’s original post is a bit like making your ML debut as a pinch hitter, but that’s just how it goes sometimes. For those that don’t know me, I moved to the Seattle area in 1990, fell in love with Griffey and have been a M’s fan ever since. Although he still holds a special place in my heart, Griffey hasn’t remained my favorite player over the years, as he was replaced by the guy that replaced himâ€”Mike Cameron. As a long-time USSM reader (fanboy?), I couldn’t be happier to join Dave and Derek for what should certainly be an exciting off-season. Thank you for all the kind words in the comments so far and let me know if you have any questions!
