Evan Brunell, a professional sports journalist, got his start by founding the Most Valuable Network, the internet's first network of sports blogs. He oversaw operations at MVN while operating Fire Brand of the American League, a Red Sox blog that celebrated its 10th anniversary at the end of 2013.

"It's amazing how many club officials read... Fire Brand of the American League," Peter Gammons said once of the influence Fire Brand had on the early blogosphere and baseball. Fire Brand is now an affiliate of ESPN as part of the SweetSpot Network.

Brunell has contributed to The Hardball Times, NBC Sports, NESN, ESPN, Deadspin, Baseball Prospectus MLB.com and CBS Sports. With over 10 years of experience writing about baseball, Brunell has developed a reputation for deep knowledge of the game and reasoned, logical analysis of baseball.
