About Connelly Doan - RotoBaller

I am a Data Specialist by trade and have been fortunate to apply those skills to my passion of baseball. As an east coast transplant, I always back my Birds (Orioles and Ravens) but have adopted the SF Giants and Oakland A's. When I'm not diving into baseball stats I enjoy playing drums and trying out new restaurants and bars around the Bay Area.
