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.

Here's another Royals billboard

Our very own brilliant Tyler Drenon points out that it's probably a good thing the Royals didn't try the sliding-into-2nd thing with Chris Getz. I agree.

What jobs should A-Rod try in 2014?

Well you can cross "mariachi guy" off A-Rod's list of jobs to try during his suspension. Suggest other jobs for him in the comments (include pictures!).
