Baseball Side of FanSided (6/5)

It’s Saturday.  It’s time for everyone, especially umpires everywhere, to step back and take a deep breath.  It’s time to get excited, for the 2010 MLB Draft is just days away.  With that happy thought in mind, enjoy the links that follow and do your best to have a great weekend.  [...]


Jordan Campbell, our lead writer for Cubbies Crib, has agreed add a little more to his plate.  Going forward he will be a contributing writer for our White Sox site, Southside Showdown, and we will continue the search for a lead writer.

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.

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 on Saturday morning.
