  1. Welcome back, Hub. Your frequent visits to WSCR made your ideas available but I hoped you would associate with a publication of some sort again. I will be a loyal follower, and I look forward to your draft guide.

  2. I love the way Hub represents his opinions as opinions (and not necessarily fact). He talks up talented players without over-hyping them, and dismisses less talented players without insulting them. I find his style refreshing and enjoyable.
