Ryan Mueller- Co-Editor- MiLB Fanatic-
READ MORE FROM RYAN MUELLER
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.

READ MORE FROM RYAN ANDREWS

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

James Dailey – Staff Writer –
READ MORE FROM JAMES DAILEY
James Dailey is like a purple unicorn – a US born and raised Blue Jays fan whose loyalty emerged at the age of 11. He was seduced away from any of the teams near his native Central Pennsylvania by the exciting young outfield of Bell, Barfield and Moseby. He obsessively awaited Blue Jays highlights on Sportcenter and Baseball Tonight every day, and was the first to grab the mail on delivery day of his beloved Sporting News – his only source of regular team coverage in the offseason. He’s in his 32nd year playing baseball, and a few years ago pitched as the starter into the 11th inning of a 3-2 victory against his team’s biggest rival, cause that is how he rolls. Shortly there after, he rolled himself to the orthopedic to be diagnosed with a torn labrum, so now he just noodle arms the ball over from 2B.
Catherine Stem- Staff Writer-
READ MORE FROM CATHERINE STEM
Catherine is a Blue Jays girl who loves this team and is looking to add to her World Series parade experience. There’s nothing better than writing about this team and nothing worse than waiting for the season to start…..

READ MORE FROM WILLIAM WILSON
As a long-time Jays fan, I’ve invested more time in bad baseball than a sane person would allow. Fortunately, I was finally rewarded with some post-season action last year! This year? My fingers have been crossed since April.
I’m also a big fan of pizza, but that needs no explanation.
Roy Widrig- Staff Writer– Follow @rolewiii
READ MORE FROM ROY WIDRIG
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 Follow @jeffquattro
READ MORE FROM JEFF QUATTROCIOCCHI
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.
Callum Ferguson – Staff Writer
READ MORE FROM Callum Ferguson
Born just mere months before Joe touched em’ all, Callum is still waiting for his World Series parade. He is a budding, young journalist with a strong passion for all sports and all things Blue Jays. He now has a graduate certificate in Sports Journalism to go along with his degree in Sport Management. Callum’s career highlights thus far include writing for Sportsnet.ca and covering both 2016 MiLB Spring Training from Tampa, Fla. and the 2016 Paralympic Games from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Curtis Thompson- Staff Writer Follow @cothomps6
Since Curtis was knee high he could be found playing and watching baseball. From hours spent in front of the television with my Grandparents watching Jays games to endless practices and games on the diamond. Baseball was a way of life. Today Curtis’ baseball is second only to his two beautiful daughters and his playing days have transitioned from competitive baseball to “competitive” mens slo-pitch. We may be older but that doesn’t stop our passion toward the sport. Games are social and the post game involves a lot of Jays talk and bleacher critiquing.
