    Looking to fill the role of Prospects Columnist for LoveMyTeam.com. LoveMyTeam is a baseball fan site geared toward providing the business background that affects the game on the field. Ideal candidate has strong writing skills and strong working knowledge of baseball and needs to fill some holes on their resume. The writer would provide one article a month. No money but a few other benefits possible. The columnist would be able to write pieces of any length, with a wide berth given on subject matter as long as it relates to the minor leagues. The pieces could be player profiles, system profiles even focus on the differences in the leagues or team to team. Really, it would be a space to find your voice and again, build a resume.

    If interested send a sample column to baseball@lovemyteam.com

    Well, it is a freelance opportunity. Emphasis on free. If you want something named "LoveMyTeam" on your resume. Love. My. Team.

    Our marketplace tends to shake these listings out, which I think can be a more valuable service than just deleting it outright.

    No money, but they let you use as many commas as you want.

    If you're interested in working for free, come over and cut my lawn. No money, but other benefits include, cutting the lawn, possibly getting a tan, and hanging out with local squirrels.

    "OK, we'll now open it up with questions for Coach. Just a reminder, please state your name and affiliation before asking your question. We'll start things off with you in the back. Sir, go ahead."

    "Yeah, uh, Coach --"

    "Sir, could you please state your name and affiliation?"

    "Oh, right. Bullwinkle from LoveMyTeam.com"

    "From where?"


    "Is this some kind of joke?"

    "I don't think so?"

    "And what team do you love?"

    "No, no. It's LoveMyTeam.com. I don't necessarily..."

    "Love your team?"


    "OK, Sir, go ahead."

    "Well Coach, heck of a crowd out there tonight. We were all rooting for you. Did you see me?"
