Looking for writers!!!

Hello everyone. With a solid cast of writers currently at Yankees Fans Unite, we feel like we are in a good position. However, we are looking to add several more writers in an effort to bring even more high-quality original content to the blog. We are looking for someone who:

1)     Has a very strong command of the English language (including grammar, spelling, etc.).
2)     Has a plentiful, yet well balanced knowledge of all aspects of baseball/NYY.
3)     Has strong critical thinking skills and has the ability to think outside the box.
4)     Can write fluently using a healthy balance of analysis, advanced statistics, and opinion.
5)     Can commit to writing at least 1 article per week.

If you are interested, please email me (yankeesfansunite@gmail.com) with:

1)     A bio (probably just a paragraph)
2)     2 sample articles on topics of your choice.
3)     Links to other Internet work you’ve published in the past (if applicable).

We really look forward to your submissions…and good luck!!!

Morning Bits: Tex, Cano hit streak to 23, Swisher injured, A-Rod should be full time DH

Good morning all.  Another loss in a close game last night.  Lot’s to do today so here are the links….

—  Wallace Matthews of ESPN NY writes Tex is what he is.

— Cano’s single in the 7th pushed his hit streak to 23 games writes Evan Drellich of mlb.com

Drellich also has the story of Swisher’s hip flexor strain.

— Bleacher Report writer Zachary Rymer suggests that the Yankees make A-Rod the full-time DH to maximize his value.
