    Hi Gil,
    I am a baseball blogger and am looking to start a brand new site with a large group of writers. We have a few great writers already on board and we are looking for more to join in. Please let me know if you're interested, even if you are only able to write an article per week.
    Please contact me if you're interested UpAlongFirst@Gmail.com
    Thanks!
