Unpaid internships are how corporations “haze” recent college graduates.
Hi, everybody! Tumbleweeds have been bouncing across this blog for quite some time, but there’s good reason: Since June of 2010, I’ve been writing about baseball history for the Seamhead’s Outsider Baseball Bulletin. It’s a weekly publication, and subscription only- but it’s DIRT CHEAP. I actually own and edit the thing, and over the past year I’ve brought in some wonderful new contributors, including Mike Lynch and Kevin KJOK Johnson of Seamheads and BBTF Hall of Merit fame. Please check out the web site to see what the baseball big shots have been saying about the publication. If you’re on twitter, check out the live feed at the right. There’s a follow button for your convenience.
And oh, have a great day!
I know a few Chicago Cubs fans whose affection for the wobegon club has turned into something of a bad habit. Like smoking.
If you follow me on Twitter (scottsimkus1) or facebook or subscribe to the Outsider Baseball Bulletin or you read Joe Sheehan’s newsletter, or Tom Tango’s web site or look at David Pinto’s work, then you already know by now: Detailed Negro League statistics are now available at seamheads.com. Today. For free. For everybody to see, use, analyze and enjoy.
For baseball nerds, this is sort of like Christmas and Hannukah and the Fourth of July and Game Seven all wrapped into one. Been a long time coming. For those who don’t subscribe to my weekly ezine (The Outsider Baseball Bulletin), this week’s edition has the “inside” scoop on the new database, with all sorts of juicy gossip, back-stabbling and lover’s triangles. I’ll send you a FREE copy if you email me at outsiderbb (at) gmail.com. Hope to hear from you!
To improve their pennant chances in 2012, the Chicago Cubs might want to consider relocating their franchise to the Pacific Coast League.
