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.

There's still time to switch to the White Sox.

Albert Pujols isn't finished yet

There are milestones past 500 homers for Pujols to conquer, and he's still capable.

The next one isn't even close to Papi's blast, either.

Matt Harvey tweets middle finger, deletes Twitter

No one is allowed to have fun on the Internet.

Of course he did.

You'd jump too if you thought you were going to get hit in the head.

Being in the dog house isn't a bad thing when you're a dog.

Dustin Pedroia took advantage of a poor throw to end the game.

The infield gets a makeover with Holt back in Boston and Roberts out of town.

Hamilton takes the worst swing you'll see all year

It's unimaginably bad.

PawSox update: De La Rosa, Brentz, Britton

Rubby's last shot at starting is going well, Brentz is scuffling, and Britton's still in relief.

Jon Lester is as good as he's ever been

He's going about it a different way, but he's still the Jon Lester the Red Sox need.

The first-place Brewers are for real

The rest of the NL Central will know this soon enough.

Portland Sea Dogs update: Betts, Ramos, Ramirez
