Meet The Team

Eric Cole

Full-time MLB staff writer for FanSided. I have been covering the Atlanta Braves since 2015 with a big emphasis on the minor leagues. Before my time here at FanSided, I was Deputy Site Manager and Minor League Editor at Battery Power. Mike Soroka was the 2019 NL ROY, Alec Bohm never touched home plate, and Jose Alvarado should have to rebuild the mound himself.


Kurt Mensching

Kurt is Senior Editorial Director of NFL and MLB at FanSided. In the past he has written about MLB and the Detroit Tigers for SB Nation, The Athletic, and the Detroit News. He first began writing about the team in 2006.


Katrina Stebbins

Michigan native and proud Wolverine Katrina Stebbins, after a stint at MLB Network, has been covering the Detroit Tigers extensively since 2023. Her specialties are game analysis, opinionated reactions, and feature stories.

Roger Castillo

Rogelio Castillo is an accomplished contributor to various baseball sites, including Woodward Sports, Motor City Bengals, Call to the Pen, and other Fansided platforms. He has been writing and podcasting about the Detroit Tigers and their prospects since 2011, and his expertise in the field has earned him membership in the BBWAA. Besides his passion for baseball, Rogelio is a proud alumnus of the University of Michigan-Dearborn. When he's not immersed in the world of sports, he enjoys exploring science fiction, participating in trivia competitions, and reading books.

About FanSided

The idea of 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 the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle 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.
