Once again the BBSoFS got pushed back to Saturday. This week, my excuse is that I was working on the 2nd Call to the Pen mock draft for the bulk of my writing time yesterday. Under normal circumstances I would have pulled this together before working on the larger more time-intensive piece, but I kept tabling the mock draft for other projects for several weeks. Last night I decided it was time to finish it up. In the process, I got to cross something off my to do list.
Speaking of which, finishing this up will also allow me to cross something off my list. With a feeling of accomplishment just around the corner, let’s get to the news and links. [...]
No new additions or departures to report this week.
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.
We are also looking for a Lead Writer for our yet to be built Houston Astros site. If you are interested in covering this team for us and you are selected you will have the added “perk” of helping us pick the name and URL.

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.
Topics: Asdrubal Cabrera, Bob Howry, Bobby Cox, Bronson Arroyo, Colby Lewis, David Ortiz, Derek Jeter, Eric Chavez, Jay Yencich, Jerry Manuel, Jorge Cantu, Koji Uehara, Madison Bumgarner, Nate McLouth, Ricky Romero, Tim Hudson, Todd Coffey
