    Must be able to do a shit ton with computers in addition to copy editing; but we're not going to give you full time hours and you're not salaried.

    While you're doing all that work, why don't you bend over the table and let Selig shove it in real hard and far.

    If anyone is interested, also be aware that you could be getting hired for the Minor League site. It gets crazy at times (no-hitters and cycles are dirty words), but it's a fun group of people to work with.

    Here's 135 minor league games to watch. Check for all no-hitters perfect games and cycles and make sure you maintain those four web sites while you post your handful of stories, videos and photos.
