Charlie Adams grew up in Columbus, OH and has been a fan of the Indians dating back to before Jim Thome moved from third to first. As more and more statistics have been developed to evaluate players over the years, he has become increasingly interested in the idea of player valuation and front-office strategy. Though he is tired of looking forward to "next year" he is interested in the long-term success of the franchise. Charlie completed his MBA from Ohio State University and is currently working as a management consultant for Deloitte based out of Cleveland. He is planning on using his miles to attend at least one game in every stadium in the MLB.
