About Greg Shaw - RotoBaller

I have been a fantasy baseball owner and enthusiast for the past 10 years (fantasy football for the past 4 years). A Yankee fan and Don Mattingly devotee growing up, I have drifted toward the Mets ever since the Yankees chose Girardi over Donnie Baseball. In 1998, I graduated from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York with a B.A. in paralegal studies with some journalism courses mixed in. Follow me on Twitter...@GregAShaw
