Editorial Staff

Stephen Forsha, editor

I'm a lifelong fan of football and baseball. I once I had a conversation with a Hall of Fame baseball announcer about reality TV. I'm the sports editor of The Highland County Press in Ohio, along with being editor the of the Toro Times (the Houston Texans Fansided site) and the editor of Southside Showdown (the Chicago White Sox Fansided site).

Joshua McKenzie, Staff Writer

Josh grew up in a small town nestled in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. He learned at the tender age of eight that good guys wear black. Like many Sox fans, his favorite player of all was The Big Hurt, Frank Thomas.

Louie Penna, Staff Writer

Louie, 23 years old. I Live in the Chicago land area. I have been a White Sox fan since I was basically born. I am currently a writer/blogger focusing on the White Sox, but also covering all of baseball.

Kyle Franzoni, MLB Editorial Director

Kyle Franzoni has the unfortunate distinction of having his very first baseball memory be that of Mookie Wilson's slow grounder going through the legs of Bill Buckner. Since then, it has been an up and down love affair with the game, which naturally lead to putting his thoughts to digital paper and trying his hand at writing about the game he loves. A native of Vermont, where he lives with his wife and twin sons, Kyle is editor of Jays Journal and is the Editorial Director for FanSided MLB.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
