    Wasn't this posted a couple weeks ago? Does that mean if we applied then, we didn't get the job?

    What's the deal with wanting someone in the New York area? Does it really fucking matter what state you're sitting in with your pajama pants and potato chip grease-stained Cubs t-shirt on while you type this bullshit up?

    This job can be done from anywhere with a laptop.

    Well, it seems there are actually shifts that include editing and such, so the thread title is a little misleading.

    Perhaps they do remotes for MLB channel from the writer's home with Matt Vasgersian and Christopher Russo.

    Anyway, I watch MLB channel pretty much every night. I like Amsinger. It's always funny to watch the segments he and 2 analysts -- usually ex-players -- deliver on the portion of the set with a make-believe field if only because the ex-players are theatrical in their nuanced explanations and Amsinger just sort of shuffles in place -- stepping forward, sideways, backward, toward his colleagues, shuffling his feet, always moving, shuffle shuffle shuffle -- always looking like the guy who so fucking wishes he could be one of the ex-ballplayers in these situations.

    And it goes without saying though I will: Eric Byrnes is a maniac, capital M, in the very best of ways.
