Writing

I’ve been trying to keep an updated link here to the pieces I’ve written for various outlets over the last few years. Please feel free to check out my author pages at ESPN.com, Cincinnati Magazine, and The Hardball Times. I’ve been writing at Redleg Nation for nearly a decade, and I’ll try to post a link to my archives there as soon as we get that functionality up and working.
