It’s sprout time!!!
This week I wanted to lead off by letting everyone know that we are looking to add a few more writers to our little corner of the FanSided.com Sports Network. That means that if you love minor league baseball and and you enjoy writing – like we do – you might be a good fit for Seedlings to Stars. Specifically we’re looking for a few staff writers who would be capable of publishing two or more articles per week on average. Previous writing experience online – or in print – is not a requirement and lacking said experience will not be held against you in the screening process. What is a requirement is that you are capable of expressing your thoughts and opinions clearly, have some capability as a writer and a command of minor league baseball/prospects as subject matter. If you are interested in joining our team and our network I encourage you to take the time to fill out our online application.
Now on to the links for this week!
I’m going to run these down a little quicker than normal and in a more condensed format since I have a couple other articles in the works. I’m also a bit behind as a result of having to work 16 hours this weekend to make up time I missed during the past week at my “day job.”
- Jays Journal reviewed the 2011 GCL Blue Jays season in three parts. One featured the position players, one covered the relievers and one covered the starting pitchers. All three were fabulously detailed and wonderfully written.
- Speaking of the GCL, Jays Prospects.com recently did an interview with SS prospect Dickie Thon Jr.
- Lasorda’s Lair wrote about some of the Dodgers prospects playing in winter ball this year, including Jerry Sands.
- Road to Yankee Stadium published their version of the Yankees 2011 Minor League All-Star Team on Thursday.
- MiLB.com is asking fans to vote for their favorite photo taken during the 2011 minor league season. It’s fun, it’s easy so go vote already! For whatever it’s worth, “H” is my personal choice.
- As I’m sure you’re aware, Baseball America recently wrapped up their postseason Top-20 prospect lists for each league. They then did a wonderful team-by-team, itemized recap of their list which is a “must bookmark” article.
