Eric Stephen is the managing editor of True Blue LA, where he's covered the Dodgers since 2009, providing comprehensive analysis of and commentary on the team, their performance, player payroll, old friend alerts, spring training ties, three-inning saves, and even the minutiae of every single roster transaction.

In addition to writing about the Dodgers, Eric is the host of two podcasts on the True Blue LA feed. Leading Off is the weekly podcast co-hosted by Jacob Burch that has delved into the ins and outs of the team since 2013. The Lineup is a daily morning podcast in season that reacts to the news and notes of each day.

Growing up in Palm Springs, Eric watched the Dodgers thanks to the guidance of his two older brothers, and has watched baseball intently (some would rightfully say obsessively) since 1985, when his first favorite player, Pedro Guerrero, tied a record by hitting 15 home runs that June.

Eric’s favorite player of all-time is Eddie Murray, who hit .330/.414/.520 for the Dodgers in 1990. He led the majors in batting average that season but did not win a batting title because Willie McGee’s .335 batting average with St. Louis stood after the outfielder was traded to Oakland in late August, a fact that Eric is still sore about over three decades later.

Eric has worked in a variety of roles for SB Nation and Vox Media. He ran SB Nation Los Angeles, was an assignment editor and copy editor for SB Nation, and wrote about all sports nationally for SB Nation. He has been a member of the Baseball Writers Association of America since 2016, and has covered 10 postseasons and three World Series.
