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.

Cliff Lee rumors: The one thing to remember

+

Wow indeed. Think it'll prevent Lee from being traded? Or will the Phillies pony up and chip-in some salary to move him?

Are the Angels done making moves?

+

DiPoto's likely to say anything, I guess. Where else do you think they should upgrade before the deadline?

Padres nix Beinfest and White from GM running

+

Any up-and-comers you can think of? Anyone talking to Farhan Zaidi of the Athletics yet?

Oh Billy, not like this

14

I'm not sure if Billy runs his own account, or knows that we can see what he favorites, or if, like some, he favorites tweets ironically. But we don't have to go out like this. We have a lot of good memories, Billy! Just let it happen. Relax, Billy.

No, thank YOU, Salvy.

For our non Spanish speakers, gracias por todo = thanks for everything.

Boras calls out Tampa Bay

I'm not buying it, even if you were to agree that the city -- and not the stadium and its location -- is the problem. Price is on the block because of the Rays' place on the win spectrum, not (just) because they can't afford to extend him.

Chris Cotillo is at the All-Star Game scrum

+

Is it me or does this look like Chris and that reporter on the left (sorry, can't place him) totally look like they're on the cover of a boxing poster? What did he do to you, Chris??

And you were worried!

Poor Aoki.

Eric Hosmer, posterized

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.

Tony Gwynn lived with cancer for 4 years

Padres fans at Gaslamp Ball were with Tony Gwynn through his entire battle with cancer. Here is a timeline of their coverage, memories, and commentary of San Diego's favorite player.

What a scary moment. Luckily Aoki wasn't hurt. (or admitted it).

I demand that Kauffman looks like this forever 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?

Who do you think is dominating this conversation?

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.

Dustin Pedroia floats

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