Baseball Side of FanSided (6/21)

As you can probably tell, I took most of the weekend off from writing to spend some quality time with the wife and kids, relax and get some stuff done around the house.

Even though they are a few days late, I hope you will enjoy the links (after the jump).

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 on Saturday morning.
