Matt Shaffner


Matt discovered Camden Chat in 2010. Was it a particularly intelligent or persuasive article that garnered my attention and earned his click? No. It was the scatalogical pun title for the daily open threads: Bird Droppings.

Now he helps generate and post the Bird Droppings threads during the week. A veritable dream come true! But his particular interest is in watching, studying, and writing about the Orioles' minor league system. Beyond that, he is a beer nerd, a lover of Heavy Metal music, and a proud native of the Eastern Shore.
