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.





AJ Andrews – Co-Editor

AJ has been immersed in sports from a young age, since she could read Jr. Jays comics as they filtered into the backwoods of Northern Nova Scotia. She’s been blogging about sports since high school, writing on FOX Sports.com’s blogs as well as her own Tailpipe Sports blog. She comes off successful stints with Plarko and Jays Journal to contribute to Jays From the Couch. She brings a discerning eye, a smoking keyboard, and a brain that made Jeopardy! rethink letting Canadians onto their program.

Writing Staff


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.




Stephen Brown – Contributor 

Stephen, or Down Town Stephen Brown as he’s better known by on the diamond is a young aspiring sports journalist. Stephen has been around baseball all his life with experience as a player, coach, and umpire. You can now find him at your local slo pitch league cranking dingers and spewing chirps.

Steve Fekete – Staff Writer

Fek” began his Blue Jays journey when high school team mate Mark Lemongello was traded to Toronto in 1979n (sorry Blue Jays fans). From the Bobby Cox days in the stands at Exhibition Stadium to Joe Carter’s walk-off to the (almost) Pittsburgh Blue Jays, he has kept the team on his radar and built vacations around minor league games in Buffalo, Syracuse, and Bluefield and spring trainings in Dunedin. Fek has covered high school sports in New Jersey and Pittsburgh and worked on-air at radio stations throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Semi-retired from streaming radio projects and real jobs, he looks forward to spending more time on his Blue Jays obsessions.

Bob Ritchie- Contributor

Bob was a St. Louis Cardinals fan until the Blue Jays arrived on the baseball scene, although he still has a soft spot for the Cards. Similar to straddling the Greenwich Meridian, as depicted in the photo, Bob applies sabermetrics when applicable, but his heart tells him that Lou Brock belongs in the Hall of Fame.

Jim Scott- Contributor

A Jays fan since pre-Series, Jim’s biggest baseball regret is that he did not play hooky with his buddies on 7 Apr 77. But hearing “Fanfare For The Common Man” played from a rooftop on 24 Oct 92 helped him atone.

Marc Nolan- Contributor

I’ve spent Most of my life travelling and moving. Province to province, place to place. I never lived with much consistency of surroundings, but the one thing I always had was baseball, and it was like a religion in my childhood home. All I ever wanted was to play and I was fortunate to play the game at a pretty high level. Unfortunately when I was 31, I broke my neck and was unable to continue. Now in my post-playing days I have found my passion doing content, running my small business, working as a mental health advocate and being a dad. The opportunity to talk and write about baseball is an amazing privilege in my life and beyond the joy it provides me, more importantly it gives lots of “Cool Dad” points in the eyes of my kids lol
