Ian Collier and Scott Ham first started working together because of their mutual love of the New York Yankees. They quickly discovered that each had great admiration for sabermetrics and the new analytical thinking in baseball. This led to a brief collaboration on The Fair Pole baseball blog.
About Ian Collier:
Ian lives in Brooklyn and works in Manhattan at a post-production company. One day he’s gonna have a late-career renaissance a la Dennis Quaid in “The Rookie” and discover new-found life to his fastball, which currently sits in the low-60’s with late arm-side movement and some tilt. On the 20-8o scouting scale, it probably rates about a -19.
Ian spends approximately 30% of his time thinking about Hanley Ramirez. He assures you it’s a purely platonic infatuation. Ian is currently blogging comfortably from his parents’ basement.
About Scott Ham:
Scott graduated from Boston University’s College of Communication with a degree in Television Production and concentrations in history and writing. Immediately after college, he went to work for a software company as a beta tester and soon was promoted to production manager. He also designed an in-house studio to shoot video for various projects.
After about two years, Scott returned to New York and began working in post-production for advertising while writing baseball columns for a few websites, the now defunct hardrocksports.com and esportsmediagroup.com. Recently, Scott has been writing on and off for BillJamesOnline.net.
About Bill Schedler
From a very early age, Bill realized his views on most subjects were neither conventional nor in line with popular opinion. As technology advanced, so did the methods with which Bill would share his thoughts on any topic, mundane or taboo. In the late 70s he started calling random people and leaving extended messages on their newfangled answering machines. In the early 80s Bill ran with the invention of the Post-It note and littered his town with unsolicited adhesive pearls of wisdom. In the early 90s Bill was a regular caller into “party lines” where he developed a loyal following of lonely gentleman who liked to role play. Finally, in the last few years Bill has discovered the potential to offend and inspire millions (read: dozens) through blogging. And so we invite you to follow him and his universe of nonsense via The Bill of Rights and Wrongs.
