Rotoworld Updates - Writer?

Postby redjake » Mon Apr 09, 2007 10:24 pm

Who does the player updates on Rotoworld? I've always enjoyed the rare one-liners in the comments, but I think I've seen an increase in them lately...

Bobby Abreu went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and four RBI in the Yankees' victory on Monday night.

Abreu's first homer of the year came on a Sidney Ponson curveball, but it will probably count in the official stats anyway.


There was another gem or two last week. Just want to give the ;-D

It's probably a bunch of different guys. It'd be interesting to know if it's their staff writers.

Most likely it is left up to interns and less experienced writers but I would bet that each post gets reviewed an editor to assure their position on a certain player maintains consistent, etc...

i think its one guy, the same guy who runs rotoauthority.com
if im correct i think his name is Tim Dierkes.
he also does comments/predictions in the 2007 Roto Authority fantasy baseball guide, available through rotoauthority.com for $10 US.
i could be wrong, but i think thats the guy

I've used all of the services ... it seems like Rotoworld is dramatically quicker picking up news than say, Rotowire. Also, is it just me or does Rotowire seem to take Sunday afternoon off?

I like this from April 7th

News: Albert Pujols went 0-for-4 on Saturday and is off to a 1-for-17 start this season.
Impact: This after he hit just .277 in spring training. Maybe it's time for the Cardinals to start thinking about playing Scott Spiezio over him

People with babies can relate to this one:

Nomar Garciaparra left the Dodgers Tuesday after his wife, Mia Hamm, went into labor.

Hamm gave birth to twin girls in Los Angeles while Garciaparra was still on the way home. Expect Garciaparra to lose about five homers and 15 RBI this year due to a lack of sleep.

Giggle...

Tim Lincecum-S- Giants May. 6 - 7:08 pm et


Giants purchased the contract of RHP Tim Lincecum from Triple-A Fresno.

Lincecum versus Cole Hamels, and it's just an hour away. Not even Joe Morgan can ruin this one for us.
