Seeking One Good Blogger

Lucky dude that I am, I will be on my honeymoon in Cancun from November 21-28th.  The wedding is on the 18th so you can imagine that that's going to come before this lil' blog.

However I would hate to see MLBTradeRumors go stale for a week or longer during the offseason.  That just seems wrong.  So I have two ways to combat that.  One, I will ask my blogging friends to write some guest posts for me.  Two, I will find one individual to keep the site going throughout the days and perhaps nights by reporting all the rumors that appear in print.  That way we can at least keep the commentary going and the site can remain a one-stop shop for trade rumors.  I'm thinking short posts, a few paragraphs each. 

I need help finding that person to keep the site fresh with the news while I am gone.  My offer: fifty bucks and a free copy of my '07 Fantasy Guide.  I know it's not much but that's what I can do.  Here's what I'm looking for:

- College graduate or attending college.
- Fine writing skills - good spelling and grammar and no-brainer stuff like that.
- Blogging experience would be helpful.
- Writing/blog samples would be a good way to convince me.
- Roughly two free hours a day for about 10 days in November.
- Round the clock Internet access to stay on top of breaking news.
- Passion for baseball but no obvious bias.  It would be mostly objective writing.

I should add that there is some chance that if you're really good, I would request your help beyond November just to post news and the like when I don't have the time.

For my own sanity, please direct your emails to mlbtraderumors@gmail.com and no other email address.  I will ignore stuff about this sent elsewhere.  I'll give it about a week and then choose the best person.  Don't take it personally if I don't reply or pick you; I'm only taking one person after all.

Thanks for visiting and helping me out.

Hopefully your bestman isn't trying to talk you out of it while you're Bride is walking up the Aisle it never seems to work out when that happens.

Pretty sure we'll go through with this thing.

Why don't you just go to Florida for your honeymoon during the winter meetings? You could make reservations at the same hotel that where all the GM's will be staying.
I mean, that's a pretty simple solution for you.


Good luck with your search, Roto, and as DMB says, 'Don't drink the water.'

Congrats Tim - Would praying before goats & pictures of Harry Caray in drag be considered an "obvious bias" ? SOB.

Riviera Maya or downtown Cancun?

Thanks. Downtown I think, place is called the LeBlanc.

You know it might be a tough sell on my girl, attending the winter meetings for a honeymoon.

dang. only a high schooler. I'd do it for free, though :)


Congrats! If you get a chance, check out the snorkeling at Xel-Ha when you're down there, it's a blast.

Congratulations, Tim.


Thanks guys. Just wanted to say that the response has been tremendous and it's only been out there for a few hours. Very cool.

While I will only pick one person I am hearing from a ton of cool bloggers who maybe could pitch in with guest posts.

Congratulations! Stay safe south of the border.

I'd try to submit a resume for the post, but I am already swamped with trying to keep up a libertarian blog as well as a campus newsletter.

Anyway congratulations again.


Congrats man, best of luck. Unfortunatly is has to be during the Hot Stove season. EM3 had some great points, you should have Gammons as your best man, too.
