    Is this the same false advertising it usually is?

    I would assume so, yes. I applied for it last year and never heard from them.

    But then, I suck, so that could be it as well.

    It may be a bit misleading. They're probably looking for people to cover the Minor Leagues since they're always adding more teams in the lower levels in addition to the Triple-A and Double-A coverage. It's not a bad part-time gig, though, and if you're looking to get into baseball, it's a great way to get your foot in the door. That being said, I wouldn't apply for this if you live more than an hour's drive from NYC, where the office is.

    Ummm, I highliy doubt these jobs are in the chelsea office. In fact, I doubt these jobs even exist. These are ones posted on the monster website every february, for every team and I've never heard of someone hearing back from them. We had this same topic last year, and collectively came to the conclusion these jobs (supposedly in the respective stadiums, not the manhattan office) dont exist. Must be some agreement between mlb.com and monster to post them. Notice how none of these openings are on the job site at mlb.com....

    Just once? I applied every single year for five consecutive years. And I have not heard a peep - EVER.

    Although, I personally e-mailed some writers employed by MLB Advance Media and they all said there's been one or two openings the past few years.

    False advertising at its best.

    I apologize. I had no idea it was like this. My bad.

    I don't understand how blatant false advertising like this is legal.

    From my good & reliable sources, there are absolutely NO full-time positions open for writers at MLB.com. None. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Nil. Aught.

    This type of shit has to end and it will when people begin calling places like MLB out. They're not the only ones here doing this. There are a lot of hungry journalists who take a lot of time and effort not to mention money to send a package.
    It's another reason why this business keeps its eye black.
