My dog Trevor and I in Central Park, 2014. (RIP Trevor, 2016.)

I have been playing Fantasy baseball and simulation games since 1994. Just six years later, Ron Shandler gave me my first paid Fantasy baseball writing gig as a Scoresheet columnist for BaseballHQ. In 2008, I started writing for CBSSports.com as a freelancer, and in 2010, I joined the Fantasy team at CBS on a full-time basis. My time with CBS ended in August 2016, when my wife, dog, horse, three cats and I moved to Bozeman, MT.

This site picks up where my work with CBS left off. I write player analysis and strategy pieces, and I’ll also delve into other topics — some related to Fantasy baseball, and some about baseball in general.  I’ve also developed some great new tools to help you enjoy your leagues more.  Check out the Matchup Report and Individual Roster Analysis – I want you to have the edge that lets you win your league this year (or be a spoiler for your arch rival).

Before writing about Fantasy baseball for a living, I was a political science and public policy professor, having taught at Florida International University, Towson University, University of Mississippi and Emory University. I also taught social studies classes at MAST Academy, a magnet high school in Miami. It was at MAST that I had my one and only stint as an assistant softball coach.
