    I just realized writers' responses to my feedback was going to a different email box. I just read a note from you from Nov. 15, and I want to thank you for the kind words.

    Thank you!

    I also see you went to school in STANDISH, MAINE! That's awesome. During my days in college at Boston University, I spent many weekends in Limerick, Maine, which I believe isn't too far away from Standish. My memory is that Standish is straight north of Limerick, maybe 20-30 minutes away?

    I didn't know there was a college or anything in Standish. That's pretty cool.

    Keep up the good work, and happy holidays!

    Thanks Pat, great work. Yeah, sometimes player names just aren't in the system yet. I guess you're ahead of the curve ;)

    Ever think about broadening your horizons onto another website?

    The Sports Prophet is a newly created website with some innovative ideas as to how Sports Journalism works. We strive to become leaders in what we do and would like to bring you aboard.

    Would you want to cover all MLB Breaking News for our site? You can continue to write all things NBA on Bleacher Report, but when it comes to Breaking News articles they would go to our website. Each article you post would also have a brief analysis of what went down.

    My name is Alex Brooks and I am currently in college. I am personally a fan of your Quick Pitches and would love to add them to my site exclusively. As soon as this site gets off the ground, I promise you will get the exposure you need. This job would of course be non-paying, but would also be a way for you to branch out to a whole new level. Please get back to me at this email:
