July 2011 Rebound Is Out

The ‘Strongest Rookie Batch In Years’ is an understatement. We got good strong new guys this year and it’s worth learning about them now while they’re young so that one day when you’re with friends somewhere you can say things like ‘Oh I knew about (insert name of rookie here) waaaay back even before he became popular!
