Gotta believe there are some here on Redszone that would be excellent for a gig like this:

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/10/mlbtr-looking-for-writers.html


Would you like to join the MLB Trade Rumors team? We are considering adding a writer. The position pays on an hourly basis. The criteria:

* Knowledge of all 30 baseball teams, no discernible bias. Knowledge of hot stove concepts like arbitration and free agent compensation.
* Writing experience is necessary and online writing experience is preferred.
* Attention to detail - absolutely no spelling errors, especially for player and journalist names. Ability to follow the MLBTR style and tone.
* Ability to analyze articles and craft intelligent, well-written posts summing up the news in a few paragraphs. We need the best of both worlds: quick writing with thoughtful analysis. You must be able to add value to breaking news with your own insight, numbers, or links to other relevant articles.
* Ability to use an RSS feed reader such as Google Reader. Ability to use Twitter. Both of these are crucial.
* Strong evening availability - typically 5-10pm CDT shifts.
* If you're interested, email mlbtrhelp@gmail.com and take a couple paragraphs to explain how you stand out. Hundreds will likely apply, so we cannot respond to most applications.

I think John Fay should apply.It said "no discernible bias." He would only qualify if it said "no discernible ability as a sportswriter"

Brutus the Pimp would probably qualify. He's got a regular gig as an actual writer doesn't he?

Ah, so he gets paid to argue incessantly?

I wish I got paid based on the differences of opinions in life, but no, I do not. Fortunately, variety is the spice of life and I definitely don't mind a good debate.

I don't come to message boards for validation of opinion, nor do I expect anyone to agree. But until a message board stops being a place for discussion...

As for the question by Sonny... yes, that is true. I did send an inquiry to them about it. We'll see if anything materializes.
