Guest recappers for April: Sign-ups open

New, 7 comments

Time to open the doors of the SnakePit writers dunge...er, lounge, to the world at large. As ever, Sunday recaps are open to anyone who wants to try their hand. Maybe you'll bring the team better luck than the regular crew have managed so far this year!

The principal is fairly simple. You do the recap of the game as a Fanpost, however you want. It can be light-hearted or not; stats-heavy or not. detailed or atmospheric - it's all about your own voice. One of the editors then takes it, adds the bells and whistles like roll-calls and Fangraphs and it will then appear on the front cover of the SnakePit. It'll also be submitted to Google News, Yahoo! and a bunch of other outlets, so you can amaze your friends and wow your family! We'll be on hand to help if you have questions on the day.

Here's the schedule for the first month, featuring a pair of games against the Dodgers, so get your snark on. It's open sign-up, first come, first served: to pick a date, just speak up in the comments, choosing your game. As I spot them, I'll cross the games off the list. You'll then get an email, a day or so before, with details. If you haven't done it before - you need to reply at that point, confirming you're still up for it. I tend to have more faith in repeat recappers!
