SB Nation MLB League Manager and Managing Editor of MLB Daily Dish.

I'm from Kansas City and grew up on video games, MTV, sitcoms and what used to be decent sports in town. I love baseball, but I'm a Royals fan. Huge Chiefs fan.

When not reading, writing, or editing around SB Nation, I'm probably reading about space, design, videogames, technology, gadgets, nerdy things, and/or politics and policy.

Sometimes I photoshop things.

I've been a fan of Chris Sembower's work (often featured at Arrowhead Pride) and this is the first thing I've seen him do on the Royals. Can't wait for more.

This looks so damn good. Best thing about the Royals this year?

Bad timing, or BEST TIMING?

Oh Dayton. You couldn't have waited until Seitzer wasn't sitting on the opposing bench?

What happens to MLB when the polar ice caps melt?

Let's pretend for the sake of conversation the polar ice caps completely melt sometime in the next century for some reason. Here's a map that shows we'd lose more than a third of our stadiums.

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is already known for defying size-based norms. Here he is defying physics.
