columnist to provide regular analysis for shallow mixed league formats like those used by Yahoo! and ESPN. Over the last fourteen years he has contributed to the Fantasy Football Guide and Fantasy Baseball Guide, with a specialization for both sports in evaluating prospects making the leap from amateur to professional athletics.

He is a lifelong Baltimore fan, in part thanks to growing up near what was the Orioles' AA affiliate. J.D.'s only claim to fame involves he and his dad taking a 19 year old Sammy Sosa and 18 year old Juan Gonzalez to play golf for their very first time. Those experiences ultimately led to studying Cultural Anthropology as an undergraduate and in grad school, including a Masters thesis on how acculturation affects the performance of Latin American hitters.

A graduate of the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, J.D. combines a love of statistics and quantitative analysis with traditional scouting knowledge imparted to him by his father, who has worked for the Major League Scouting Bureau.
