I was born in St. Louis, moved to San Francisco in 1998, and have been a journalist for over 15 years.
More of a “Three Nights in August,” kind of guy, but with a touch of “Moneyball.”
I love to track the stats and I enjoy fantasy ball, but the numbers only tell part of the story. I try to discuss the minds under the helmets, and the hearts under the numbered uniforms.
