I was born in New Jersey, lived in Massachusetts, and now I'm in California. I graduated from Cal in the summer of 2010, joined B/R a few months later, and was put on the baseball beat in May of 2012. Still doing it, still loving it.

Follow me on Twitter for more baseball fun, but be warned: I sometimes go on and on about Doctor Who, and I've also been known to tweet random Frank Zappa lyrics.

    mate i have followed the MLB for a month now, and it is clear that Kershaw is not only better than Scherzer, but arguably the best of this generation. I find this article a travesty, Good day to you sir

    here is all anyone needs to know... David Price will be a Giant. He does not want to play for the Boston Red Sox nor the New York Mets nor the Yankees... he wants to play for the S F Giants because it is a good ballpark for pitching and they have a great defensive team. They will be glad to go the extra mile to sign Price. Done.!.

    how about analyzing the Rule 5 draft results? Reviewing the concept behind the picks(high current floor or high future ceiling?) explaining why some teams don't pick at all(only thirteen this time) and then power ranking the picks from those who didn't stick to those who did, and how well they played(Mark Canha led the As in RBIs, and Delino Deshields was a standout with the Rangers) and end up with Logan Verrett, who didn't stick with the Orioles(the fools) flopped with the Rangers, and ended up back home with the Mets, where he did sterling work with the Big team.
    would be a great article. I'd write it myself but I don't have access to the info you have.

    BOYLE sings LITTLE BATBOY Kaiser Carlile tribute on YouTube. Kansas 9 yr. old struck down. Heart wrenching. Tom Boyle is the "singing Pageboy" running in Iowa Caucus for White House.

    so Arrieta has one good season and all of the sudden hes better than Scherzer and Grienke??? Wtf dude. One good year doesn't justify you as the second best pitcher in all of baseball.

    You are the biggest homer I've ever seen. All you ever talk about is the nationals. Talk nice about other teams if you want to hide your bias.

    B/R MLB 500: Top 500 Players for 2015. You put a guy in there(maybe more, I stopped reading when I got to Josh Bell) that has never played an inning of major league ball. Stupid. How do you even know where to rank him? It makes your article completely irrelevant. In your to 10 dog breeds - at No. 9 - a cat. Your top 25 QB's - at No. 16 - David Hasselhoff? You're a fool. I with there was a way to filter out your posts. Lastly, why no little leaguers? Do not reply with a cute retort regarding Mr. Hasselhoff like I know you want to.
