A Little Help: Dodgers

In my recent survey, one significant finding was that if I carefully select some additional contributors to MLBTradeRumors.com, most of you would like it (88.7%).  Over 800 people responded to that question.  More rumors, news, and analysis = good.

So, today I will start that process by asking for one person to serve as my Dodgers correspondent.  I feel that an area that might be underrepresented on this site is the west coast.  What am I looking for?

  • A person with solid writing skills whose style fits with MLBTradeRumors.  Basically, I’ll know it when I see it.  I’m looking for the same type of analysis you see here every day.
  • Someone who can post up-to-the-minute Dodgers rumors as they surface.  I want a person who follows the Dodgers religiously and will have every source (traditional newspapers, high quality blogs, radio) covered.  You should be near a computer most times and able to hop on and write a post if something happens.
  • While this person is probably a Dodgers fan, objective analysis is preferred.  Additionally it would be nice to provide the local vibe/sentiment that people might otherwise not know about.  That might sound contradictory but I don’t think it is.
  • The benefit to you: a decent-sized audience and a chance to do a little sportswriting.
  • Email me at mlbtraderumors@gmail.com if this interests you and explain why you’re the best candidate.  I’ll choose one person and unfortunately won’t be able to reply to all.  A sample post of a rumor/signing (whether fake or true) might help make your case.  Note: long-winded posts are typically not my style! Brevity is a plus – I like 3-4 paragraph posts.
  • I’m going to be careful finding the right person, and if I as well as the readers like the results, we will add some more correspondents for other teams down the road.

NOTE: Please don’t contact me about doing this for other teams.  I just want a Dodgers person at the moment.
