Baseball Side of FanSided (4/30)

The BBSoFS is a weekly article designed to highlight one article from each of our MLB sites on the 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.

Tonight I depart on a golfing weekend with some friends to an undisclosed location in the always exciting state of Nebraska.  My weekend will most likely be filled with good times, good conversation (much of it about baseball and football), and plenty of adult beverages.  Thanks to the fact that I am a terrible golfer, it will also be filled with it’s share of frustration out on the course.  The kind of frustration that comes with being able to crush a curveball but the complete inability to hit a small, white ball off a tee in a desired direction.  Maybe if the ball was moving I’d have better luck.  On the bright side of things, I am a decent putter (relative to the rest of my game).  [...]

Staff Announcements:

There are some recruits in the works, but no official announcements to make this week.  Should finally have some news on this front for the next installment of BBSoFS.
