There are three things I strongly suggest you check out if you follow the Rays, aspire to be on a bigger stage writing baseball, or play fantasy baseball.
RaysProspects.com will have their downloadable Rays prospect guide out on March 7th. Here is a preview of what you can expect so you can start lining up for your free copy any time now.
MLB.com is holding a Dream Job audition. If you are a young aspiring writer who can pick up and leave your current situation and go live the dream for a year covering baseball, I strongly encourage you to apply for this rare opportunity. You cannot buy this kind of access for a week let alone a full baseball season. The hardest part about working in baseball is getting your foot in the door; MLB is holding it wide open here for the winner of this audition.
Lastly, if you are a fantasy baseball player, Paul Sporer’s guide to starting pitchers is out, for free. Even if you are not a fantasy baseball guy, I believe you will find the pitching evaluations informative. Sporer asked me to chip in with a strategy article as well as other fantasy notables such as John Halpin of FoxSports, Mike Siano of MLB.com, Zach Sanders of Fangraphs, and Tim Heaney of KFFL. I vouch for Paul because I’m the guy that got him started into advanced statistical analysis some seven years ago at a Hooters in Austin, TX while we ignored some NFL playoff games.
