Baseball Blog: The Full Count

: Why read "traditional" baseball sites? Because that's all you've probably known. But you're not learning anything new. By now, you already know who won last night's game, you know the stats, and you know the players. And that's all that most baseball sites will tell you.
Dig deeper with the Full Count! We're not afraid to go into in-depth analysis, make tons of grammatical mistakes, listen to your views and yell, "YANKEES SUCK!" as loud as we can. At The Full Count, you'll get the scoop about your favorite and least favorite teams. We are all baseball. All the time. 

We're not your traditional baseball site. We are much more unprofessional. And for better or for worse, that's what you are going to get when you read The Full Count.

So check us out. Here. And here. And here. But not here.

And send hate mail. We seriously love hate mail.

The Writers

Tommy Meyers - National League Blogger

Tommy recently received his MBA with a concentration in sport management from Loyola University Chicago and is also a graduate of Concordia University Chicago in 2010, where he received a degree in sport management and marketing.  While there, Tommy pitched for the baseball team for 4 years, albeit not very well.  Tommy currently resides in Skokie, Illinois and works for a college athletic recruiting company.  He is a die-hard Cubs fan, which has made for years of despair and heartbreak.   He also looks like P Vinnie Chulk.  

Wade Arthur - American League Blogger

Wade is currently working as a senior accountant.  He graduated from Concordia University Chicago in 2010 as well, where he received his degree in accounting and sport management while playing 2nd base on the baseball team for 2 years.  He resides in Schaumburg, Illinois with his wife.  His team hails from the South Side of Chicago in the White Sox, contributing to many arguments and debates with Tommy, especially during the Crosstown Classic.  

Chris Niermann - Staff Contributor 

Chris was brought aboard to assist with the MLB Hot Stove Updates and helps manage the layout and design (which he does poorly).  Chris is also a 2010 graduate of Concordia University (wonder how all the writers met?) and currently lives in Houston, Texas, working with various non-profits from the marketing side.  He is a native of Michigan and continues to be tortured by the unrequited love of the Detroit Tigers.
