Re: Welcome to our New Members!
Hey, guys, lifelong Reds fan here. Won't be giving you my actual name, but I'm a recent graduate of the Ohio State University and thus a proud Buckeye, and I'm a happy resident of the great city of Columbus. I'm an obscure, struggling writer, and I have no illusions of self-importance as a result. Long time lurker, I recently joined after getting fed-up with the Reds message board I used to post on. I had a much better time reading the conversations on this site than I did actually posting on the other one. I've used redszone as a source for Reds news, as a filler for boredom, and as an educational resource (learned a great deal about the intricacies of sabremetrics from this site). I've always considered myself a stat head, something that probably sprung up as a result of my travel ball coach/father's stat-keeping and what not. I look forward to years worth of stimulating conversation and warm debate.
P.s: I think the merging of the boards is a great idea. Had it not been for that, I may have never joined.
