A Wrong Has Been Righted Here on The Greedy Pinstripes

A wrong has been righted here on the blog but before we touch on that I'd like to start off your Friday morning with a bit of a story. I've told this story a couple of times here on the blog but in case you missed it here it is one last time. And when I say last I mean I'll likely tell the story again in a month or so, who knows?

Back before we started this blog here myself, Bryan Van Dusen, Bryan Knepper and others all used to post on a forum called Daily Sports Pages. We outgrew the forum and we all wanted more and myself, Bryan V and a man named Jorge Maestre decided we would start a blog. I personally was highly against this, I wanted to simply open up another forum but I was talked into the blog by my colleagues ultimately.

Long story short things didn't work out initially with the three of us, Jorge went one way and obviously Bryan and myself went another. Here we stand some 1.3 million views later but it has never really felt right having all this success and all this fun without Jorge. Well guess what, this feels right because a wrong has been righted.

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you all to one of my very good friends and one of the most talented people and writers I have ever had the pleasure of speaking with and getting to know and love. Mr. Jorge Maestre ladies and gentleman. This is going to be big for the blog, take my word for it.

Welcome J!


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
