    Apparently he's going to be the Gamecocks beat writer for the Charleston Post and Courier.

    A job covering the Braves that also entails some layout?! Sounds like an odd combination; I assume that would be filling in on the desk during the offseason (if there truly is one in any pro sport)?

    Where exactly would this person lay out? Augusta one night, Athens the next? That doesn't make much sense.

    Also, don't expect this one to pay too much, boys and girls.

    You'd have to live in Atlanta and the layout isn't spread out.

    If anyone wants a little more info, PM me. I do work for the Morris clan.

    Maybe the beating he took from the Morris Braves was so severe that he couldn't go on.

    Wait, I might have read the subject line wrong.
