My name is Joseph Lopez. I'm an English major at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). I'm also a Featured Columnist for the Oakland Athletics community, here on B/R.

In addition, I'm a Lead Writer for the FanSided site, Swingin' A's blog (www.swinginas.com).

Recently, I've been unable to write about the team I cover here on B/R, but I plan on writing at least one A's article per week once the season starts. I will not, however, be able to frequently cover the team as I have in the past---because my focus has been on making Swingin' A's a reliable source for all your Oakland A's news.

Anyway, I'd like to thank my fans for sticking by me---I promise to start writing on a more consistent level. Until then, thanks for the support and reads!

    Yeah, it was a lot of fun to chat with them. I got caught off guard with a couple of the questions, but I thought I did an OK job.

    Nice job with Swingin' A's, by the way. They offered me that position, but I wanted to keep my A's stuff here, so I run their Padres site instead. Good to see the A's job go to a strong and dedicated writer like yourself.

    And if you ever want me to contribute over there with anything, I'll be available!

    Hey Joseph,

    I've gotten some, shall I say, "overly passionate" comments on my most recent article. I'd love an opinion from someone who's a bit more level-headed:
