Baseball Reflections: Team Expansion
- Updated: January 23, 2009
Baseball Reflections is now announcing it’s plans on team expansion and what that means to you, our most loyal readers and what it means (we hope) for the site itself. For those of you who are baseball fans that have a favorite team(s) and are not just fans of the game itself, you will be happy to know that we are expanding our team coverage every month. You may have noticed that Bill and I have come clean and announced our allegiances for our hometown teams the Cleveland Indians (Bill) and the Boston Red Sox (Peter) and now we are adding three more teams to that list along with three more writers.
We have added Aaron Schimpf from RBI Magazine, Bob Ruffolo from Yankees Rumors and Theo Fightmaster from the SF Giants Examiner. I will write more on them in a minute, please bear with me. These men will write a monthly “Reflection” on their team for us and Bill and I will try to limit the Indians and Red Sox Reflections to once a month as well unless something really BIG happens. We will also be looking to sign up writers for the remaining Major League teams as well, so if you’re interested e-mail me (Peter) at email@example.com to apply.
Aaron Schimpf from RBI Magazine
Aaron will be writing on the current World Champion Philadelphia Phillies. Here’s a sneak peek of Aaron’s work over at RBI Magazine, this article is called, Phillies Looking At Nomar Garciaparra. He will be making his first post with us either this month or early next month.
Bob Ruffolo from Yankees Rumors
Bob will be writing on the New York Yankees. Here’s a sneak peek of Bob’s work over at Yankees Rumors, this article is called, The Best Yankees during the Bush Administration. He will be making his first post with us this month.
Theo Fightmaster from the SF Giants Examiner
Theo will be writing on the San Francisco Giants. Here’s a sneak peek of Theo’s work over at SF Giants Examiner, this article is called, Is the window closing on this Giants team?. He will be making his first post with us either this month or early next month.
What this means for the site is that you will get a more well rounded look at the league and we will have more time to research before publishing articles and provide you with much more detailed analysis as we get closer to having writers for every MLB team. This could also allow me to devote more time to promote the site, tweak the look and feel of the site, etc. Plus, it should bring in some more readers, too.
After all, this site is called Baseball Reflections and these new writers and the others who will hopefully join later will give us the ability to reflect on each team where we just don’t have the resources or manpower to currently do. I hope you ll enjoy the direction we’re moving towards.
