    does anyone have any insight/experience regarding this one or know if this could lead to any full-time work?

    Now is this a complete fraud of an opening like all the "openings" on monster.com?
  4. Are these the poor schlubs who take half-inning by half-inning scoring over the phone from the various parks? That's got to be rough work...

    you know, in college baseball they used to have the press box phones ringing off the hook from other schools looking for score updates to announce. Gametracker has put an end to that, hallelujah.

    Especially with the rubes who work at the park in my town.

  9. Doc, I can tell you some stories about those rubes--especially the pronunciation adventures with Latin players.

    No, this ain't a fake job.

    You have to be already based in the New York area, though.

    It's not taking game stats off the phone, it is editing and publishing the stories of recappers who use those stats to write game stories though.

    For now it's a seasonal gig. There is turnover, so there's a chance it could be more. We can't promise that though.

    Oh, I've experienced that shit first-hand. Not to mention that 450-pound fat fuck Jesse, who waddles toward the concession stand when hot dogs go on sale the last two innings.
  12. I don't cover enough games there to know Jesse.

    My favorite was when Spanish first names "Johan" and "Danilo" became "John" and "Dan."

    That year there was a pitcher named "Yusmeiro" on one team and I am fairly certain that, if he happened to pitch in that game, he would've just been called "Herb."
