Baseball Side of FanSided (4/24)

The BBSoFS is a weekly article designed to highlight one article from each of our MLB sites on the FanSided.com Sports Network.  The ultimate goal is to increase the exposure of our MLB team sites, highlight some the work of our writers and in doing so pass along some articles that are relevant to the “happenings” and topics of the week that was.  The BBSoFS also affords me the opportunity to announce new writers to our MLB staff and also to announce staff openings that we have.  Typically this will be published every Friday but from to time, it will be posted on a Saturday.

The NFL Draft has been getting the lion’s share of the headlines (and rightly so) the last few days, but now that ESPN’s favorite marginal QB prospect, Tim Tebow, has been drafted maybe we can all move on.  [...]

Staff Announcements:

There are some recruits in the works, but no official announcements to make this week.

Help Wanted:

If you are interested in joining our MLB staff to write for one of the listed teams, please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected]  We break our staff down into two roles.  Lead Writers are expected to write and publish content on a regular basis.  Contributing Writers are expected to write and publish at least one article per week but are welcome to write more if they choose to do so.
