Tom Dakers, long time baseball fan, been through the good and bad with the Jays (seems like mostly bad lately) and the Expos (still sad about them leaving). I've been running and writing for Bluebird Banter for 6 years now (time flies when you are having fun). I'm very proud of the growth of the site in that time.I also write for CBCSports.ca and occasionally you'll see my name in other spots.

Sometimes it seems like all I do is talk about baseball.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Toronto Blue Jays
  • NHL Calgary Flames
  • Golf Phil Mickelson (lefties stick together)
  • Soccer Newcastle United
