Baltimore Orioles: Be Birds Watcher’s next superstar writer!


Speaking as the Senior Editor of the site (now in my fourth full season here), I’m really proud of what we’ve accomplished at Birds Watcher. I sincerely hope and believe that we put out professional-looking columns on a daily basis, and that we’re able to provide in-depth and critical analysis of the Baltimore Orioles for both local and national fans. And none of this would be possible without our loyal readers who come here on a daily basis. So to all of you, I raise my glass!

So my question today is whether or not any of you might have what it takes to join our team yourselves. The requirements for being a staff writer at Birds Watcher aren’t overbearing, and it’s a great way to gain experience and to get your foot in the door as a writer. In effect, we ask for 1-2 posts per week. All writers are more than welcome to do more, however that’s the main requirement.

by clicking here. I get a few tweets and even emails here and there about writing for Birds Watcher; please understand, the Fansided Network is a professionaly-run operation, so yes there is an application process. The only thing that I tell every applicant is pretty much what I said above; our goal is to be professional in our reporting on the O’s. That means that we’re not blind homers, or blind criticizers. We call things down the middle.

Speaking of the O’s, they’ll head back to Fort Myers for the second consecutive day to take on Minnesota this afternoon. They defeated Boston 11-5 yesterday behind a strong start by Brian Matusz. Buck Showalter has indicated that he’s not expecting to give any of his presumed five starters any more time against AL East opponents this spring, which means that we might see Matusz a few more times in a starting role. Miguel Gonzalez gets the starting nod this afternoon.
