It is that time of year where the Baseball Prospectus fantasy team starts ramping up for our best-on-the-internet preseason coverage. Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre are firing up their rankings machines, both for 2017 and for 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 to buy that post-hype prospect). George Bissell is leading our podcast movement and, along with Greg Wellemeyer, Scooter Hotz and Matt Collins, giving you both the landscape of the 2017 fantasy season and deeper dives on individual players with fluctuating values so you can be better equipped to make decisions both large and small.
But here is where we need your help. We are looking for some new members for the BP fantasy team, and we plan to scour the world wide web to find the best people to supplement our current team. We're looking for writers who are both redraft-focused and dynasty-focused. We're looking for creative souls with vast experience both playing and writing about fantasy baseball. Right now, we have two different opportunities, Staff Writer and Intern. 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. Interns are responsible for filing one article per week and helping out with staff posts throughout the season. Below you'll see what we're searching for in each.
- 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
- One year of fantasy baseball writing experience
- Tangible passion for the game and an eye for analytics
- Ability to hit deadlines consistently
