We at Puckett’s Pond are looking for passionate contributors to write about the Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins had an awesome turn around season, going from a 100+ loss season in 2016 to the playoffs in 2017! Now, would you like to be able to write about the Twins as they continue this success into the future? Well, you can!

We are currently looking for contributors at Puckett’s Pond to offer the insights of a fan on following, loving, and appreciating the Minnesota Twins on a daily basis. If you can contribute every day, that’s great! If you can contribute a couple of times per week, that’s great as well! What we are looking for is someone with the passion to give a fan’s perspective on the decisions made by the organization and to help speculate on those moves that the Twins should make!

Puckett’s Pond is FanSided’s Twins blog. FanSided is a collection of blogs that cover everything from sports to entertainment to lifestyle and everything in between. The site has grown tremendously in 2017, so you have an opportunity to join with a fast-growing site providing Twins coverage!

So, when folks reach out on Twitter, there are a few things that are frequently asked about writing, so we’ll try to answer them quickly:

How often/how much do I need to write?

As mentioned above, the frequency is up to you. We understand that this is not your full-time career, and thus, expecting a certain amount of articles per day or week or having any deadlines are not going to be part of how things are done in general. That said, we would like to see in the range of roughly 1-2 articles per week.

Those articles need to be 300 words long at minimum, but there is no such thing as a maximum, and if you’re passionate like we are, finding 300 words is incredibly easy! Write your passion, and we can work with the rest!

What do I write about?

If there is a way you can evaluate baseball, you can write about it. If there’s a way you can speculate about baseball, you can write about it. There’s really nothing that’s off limits completely.

On Puckett’s Pond, we cover news of injuries, trades, and hiring/firing that happens as “newsy” pieces. We write articles on how it’s time for player X to head to the minors or to call up player X from the minors. We write all-time lists comparing the best players of all-time in Minnesota Twins history. We just recently completed a list of the top 100 prospects in the Minnesota Twins minor league system. Really, anything about the team is fair game!

Do I need to attend/watch all the games in order to write?

I will personally attest that as insane about baseball as I am, I did not see all 162 games of the Twins in 2017. I did not see every single game of the minor league teams, as much as I enjoy watching minor league games. You certainly don’t need to attend games in person. In fact, the current staff of Puckett’s Pond is made up of contributors in four different states, so as long as you can follow the team in whatever way you follow the team, that’s completely cool by us!
