Baseball Bias: On Writing This Season

This got sent out on the announcements mailer, too, but I need you guys to read this again:


I cannot stress how important it is that you make these deadlines. If you cannot make a deadline, PLEASE TELL US. Do not flake out and just not talk to us. If you flake out on us too many times, you create a hole where content should be, and if you’re doing a high-profile team, it’s even more important that you make your deadlines every week.

And I’ll say this until I’m blue in the face: If you’re having trouble coming up with topics to write about, ASK US FOR HELP. Too many times last season I heard, “Well, I couldn’t think of anything to write about.” Yeah, well, that’s why we’re here. So use us for that. I will no longer be accepting this excuse for a lack of content. If I don’t hear from you, I will assume you no longer wish to write for us and I will disable your access and email appropriately.

I’m trying to turn this into a viable business model. I’m trying to make it so there’s weekly content and steady readers for advertisement. If you can’t do that, then you’re making it difficult for those who’re trying their best to accomplish this goal. I want to eventually start paying writers, but I can’t get there without consistent writing.

If you can’t do this, now’s the time to quit. Don’t jerk us around for half a season.

    Have you sent anything to me in my e-mail? My brain is fried, but I checked and didn’t see anything. I’m not deliberately blowing you off, I just thought you hadn’t gotten stuff set up.

    has most of the details. But I’m sending all info to your email account, which I gave information on how to access at this post:

    Crap, I thought it was to my regular e-mail. I’m an idiot.

    And I seem to be a bigger idiot because I can’t get into BB e-mail. I put in pbeninato with the password–is it case sensitive?

    For you, it’s ptbeninato. Both you and AJ Miller use first inital, middle inital, last name…. because of the name you’re using for writing.
