It’s nearly the end of the calendar year, which means the Baseball Prospectus fantasy team is starting to fire up the engines on our best-on-the-internet preseason coverage. Mike Gianella and I are making sure the rankings machines are running smoothly, both for 2019 redraft and dynasty formats. Ben Carsley and Wilson Karaman are continuously sharpening their prospect knowledge so you can make sure to grab that next big prospect (or when the right time to buy back in on Dan Vogelbach is). Jon Hegglund, Darius Austin, Mark Barry and the rest of our team are hanging by the coffee maker debating how early and expensively they’re willing to throw down on Whit Merrifield this year. (Come on, guys. Refill the Keurig. You know the rules.) We got the offseason started early by picking up big-time free agent Rob Silver, who you’ve likely seen around these parts already, and we have one of my favorite former BP Fantasy writers returning for a second engagement in January. (No spoilers.) We’ve taking roll call internally and are hard at work preparing for the big January push to help you prepare for draft day and beyond.
But here is where we need your help. We are looking for one more new writer for the BP Fantasy team, and we plan to scour the deep corners of the internet to find the best fit to supplement our current team. It might be you, person who is reading this article. We’re looking for writers who have experience with different formats, but having dynasty-league experience is definitely a plus. We’re looking for creative souls with diverse voices and experience both playing and writing about fantasy baseball.
(At this point it is important to clarify, given the state of the industry and the recent ownership change, that this is a paid position. All open positions you see posted at BP will be paid from here on out–this is one of the most important tenets of our current management team.)
Right now, our opening is at the Staff Writer position. Staff writers are responsible for filing approximately three articles every two weeks, helping answer the call at the Bat Signal, and writing up breaking news for Transaction Analysis articles. Below you’ll see the level of experience and background that we are looking for:
- 2-3 years of consistent fantasy writing experience
- Knowledge of all different kinds of formats (rotisserie, head-to-head, points, dynasty, etc)
- Previous work on rankings and valuations
- 7-10 years of experience playing fantasy baseball
If the position sounds right for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know why you think we should consider you for the position, along with recent samples of your work. We look forward to hearing from you, and potentially working with you!
