An MLB Lead Writer for Bleacher Report, I've also written for ESPN and FanGraphs, where I've covered Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball and fantasy baseball. Yes, that's a lot of baseball: It's made me a veritable vault of horsehide knowledge, and I'm always engaging with and learning from fellow seamheads. You can find my writing here and here and, well, here.

Thanks for responding and like you, I too hope the Dodgers don't resemble the Marlins. But more so I hope they don't resemble their NBA counterpart, the Lakers. It feels like this mentality of stacking your team with stars — or in the Dodgers/Lakers case players who used to be stars or are on the tail-end of that stardom — totally disregards the importance of chemistry. I live up in San Francisco and like most Dodgers fans I do not root for the orange and black of the Giants, but there's no denying that they've invested in two key areas: pitching (defense wins championships) and chemistry. They haven't had huge shakeups with big egos entering the clubhouse, but rather they've brought in role players (Scutaro for example, or Cody Ross of 2010) who are committed to the ultimate uniting cause, a World Series. There's no room for selfishness and I just hope the Dodgers can remember that as they immerse themselves in what, on paper, looks to be one of their best in recent memory.
Thanks for becoming a fan, Jason! How are you enjoying writing for B/R so far? I really enjoyed your recent piece about draft targets and the hidden gems of fantasy drafts. I'm beyond excited for baseball season, even though who knows what's to come of my team, the LA Dodgers, who are now not only overflowing in money, but in expectation from the excess of money they just spent on such an array of talented players. What's your team? I'm imagining the Yankees haha Thanks again, Jason, and if you have any questions about the site or ideas for how to improve it please feel free to contact me.
