We’re looking for a prospects writer

Are you interested in writing about prospects? We’re looking for someone to cover the Phillies farm system, from Lehigh Valley down to the Dominican summer leagues.

Writing for Phillies Nation means a step into a career in communications. Several current national and local sports and media personalities have written for PN, and we promise to help you improve your writing, sourcing and journalistic abilities.

If you’re interested in writing about prospects, email Tim Malcolm at using the subject line “Prospects Writer.” In the email, write a short bio and link to at least one piece you’ve written previously. If you don’t have links, attach anything you’ve written recently – it doesn’t have to be baseball related.

    This blog has turned over quite a bit since it not by coincidence seemed to peak during Golden Age 2 of Phillies baseball. Since reading is often subjective, its not impossible that there are those that think it’s better now, but anyone that does would carry short thinking views if they thought those that have moved on were weak. One of the kingpins of that old group, Jay Floyd was the prospect correspondent for a number of years. Jay was one of the last to leave from a group that included the Seidmans, Pat Gallen, and no doubt others whose names escape me at this point. Ian Riccaboni, or something like that was good, too. Not that salutations are required when someone moves on to probably better options, but it’s a shame that Jay left this scene without any recognition, or public appreciation. Maybe there are reasons he left, but he did a terrific job, and whoever is hired doesn’t face as daunting a task as replacing a Lombardi or Wooden, but it’ll be challenging to say the least. Phoulballz, baby.

    I too wonder what happened to Jay Floyd who had consistently wrote excellent reports with keen perception and information on prospects in the Phillies minor league system. I miss him especially at this time of year as the spring training opens this week.
