When Chris Hatfield tweeted out the Sox Prospects job posting in October, I knew I wanted to go for it.

Sox Prospects, the pinnacle of baseball geek-dom, is a site I've had bookmarked for years. For my money – which I don't even have to spend, because it's free! – the site is the best source for news and information about prospects in the Boston Red Sox system. And for an armchair general manager like me, it's pure, unadulterated sports porn.

So I figured, why not give it a go?

Now, after a couple of weeks, I can proudly say I've been hired by the site as a staff writer. Thanks to Chris and Mike Andrews for the opportunity. I can't wait to get started. Hopefully I play a role in improving the site's already sterling reputation.
