Schuyler Dombroske

Schuyler Dombroske: has been a Yankees fan since the early '80's, and has absolutely no remorse about the Boss spending money since he believes, that in no way guarantees any type of success by itself. Schuyler has been playing some form of fantasy baseball since 1987, switching from play-by-mail PTP board leagues to roto-style ball in around 1993. Schuyler still plays Diamond Mind (sort of 2nd generation PTP), roto, Diamond Kings, and STATS Diamond Legends on a reasonably consistent basis, and also writes for Top Prospect Alert. Schuyler lives in Syracuse, NY with his wife, Kristin, son Griffin (3), and daughter Kendall (1). Schuyler is a financial advisor with Merrill Lynch since 1995.
