Marc Normandin

Baseball Editor and Contributor

I got my start writing about baseball for an audience with the founding of Beyond the Box Score back in 2005, and have spent the subsequent years writing about the game for Baseball Prospectus, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated among others. I was also the video game editor at Blast Magazine for a few years; sadly, my experience seeing cosplay at gaming conventions won't help me as much here at SB Nation as we all wish it would. I'm currently co-managing SB Nation's Red Sox blog Over the Monster and writing for Sports on Earth, in addition to writing and editing for SB Nation's MLB hub.

Getting to know one of baseball's top prospects.

Daily Puig: Leake homers, doubles, strikes out 8

Puig would be proud of Leake's rockets.

Rizzo takes batting practice with meatballs

As in the Italian food item.

Reds, Pirates combine for record 10 home runs

The Reds and the Pirates will have a chance at the MLB record for combined home runs in a single game when play resumes Tuesday.

Pirates adopt Daniel Bryan's 'YES!' chant

Now if only the Reds fans in attendance had countered with "NO!"

Orioles' ballgirl fields fair ball

She can't help her tremendous range, okay?
