2Ryan Mueller- Co-Editor- MiLB Fanatic

I’ve been a Toronto Blue Jays fan for as long as I can remember. Cut my blogging teeth with Jays Journal at Fansided. Not a writer by trade, but I’m improving. These days I watch more MiLB.tv than Blue Jays. The great thing about covering eight Blue Jays minor league team is, at least one of your teams is bound to come away with a victory. I will provide Jays From the Couch with daily MiLB highlights during the summer, Prospect Spotlights, updates on MiLB transactions, and a sprinkling of MLB analysis. Visit often and let’s talk/debate prospects and their potential.

He comes off successful stints with Plarko and Jays Journal to contribute to Jays From the Couch.

joyJoy Frank-Collins- Staff Writer-

Joy Frank-Collins is a Communications professional who got her start writing as a journalist at a daily newspaper in southeastern Ohio. She was born in Reds country, but “found” baseball watching the 1986 Mets win the World Series. A long-time Pittsburgh Pirates fan, she added the Blue Jays as her AL team the day they picked up Russell Martin. She lives in Marietta, Ohio, with her family, who all share her passion for baseball. She loves the suicide squeeze, a crisp 6-4-3 double play and catchers. When not obsessing over baseball, Joy likes to work out, travel and drink wine.

thumbnail_zioncampRoy Widrig- Staff Writer

Roy’s earliest memories all involve baseball and from the early 90’s and the Blue Jays dream teams. He became a Blue Jays fan upon meeting and watching Carlos Delgado and Shawn Green cut their teeth in Syracuse, NY in the run-down confines of MacArthur Satdium, nestled between highway and swamp deep within the Rust Belt. A lifelong baseball player, Roy still plays in the 25+ Syracuse MSBL for the Liverpool Mets. He watches almost all games with his best buddy Sebastian, a four year old Pug.

Jeff Quattrociocchi – Staff Writer

I’m an economics professor, born and raised in the GTA, who decided to make something of his life and blog about the Blue Jays. I was lucky enough to watch Game 6 vs. Atlanta on the Jumbotron and Game 5 vs. Texas alone in my basement, where I could more easily avoid breaking anyone/anything due to my rage/euphoria. On weeknights from May to September, I can be found patrolling 1B for my modified slo-pitch team. Jose is my favourite Jay. While I can’t hit the ball as hard as he does, I do hit in the three-hole and enjoy conversing with umpires about their vision problems.
