what to do with nl east chatter?

Filed Under (NL East Chatter) by mrose on 24-04-2012

Hello to my (tens of?) readers.  I’ve been trying to get NLEC to catch on for almost 3 years now.  I’ve had some good runs and some good writers, but overall, no real success. The domain is registered for a little while more, but I get no bites no new writers and as one person simply don’t have the time to post a ton of stuff. I’ll make one final plea for writers, but I’m not sure what will come of this site.

Thanks and if you are interested again in writing for NLEC or about any of the blogs involved, please email me mrose@nleastchatter.com or find me on twitter @nleastchatter Thanks

Writers needed

Filed Under (NL East Chatter, NLEC News) by mrose on 11-04-2012

Once again, I’ll make a plea, and maybe with the season beginning things will change.

I’m still looking for some writers to write about just about anything NL East related. If you’d like to write specifically about a team, we have Centerfield Gate for the Nats and Phillies Phandom for the Phillies.  If you are Braves or Marlins fan, we can create a whole new blog!

I’d like to give this another go and please shoot me a line with contact below if interested. Thanks!

According to Dave O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Chipper Jones will be activated from the DL and play today.  The Braves hope this will be a kick to their disappointing start.

Trouble in Miami already?

In addition to a sluggish 1-3 start for the vaunted Miami Marlins, now there is some controversy over comments made by controversial manager, Ozzie Guillen.
The Sun Sentinal is reporting that a Cuban-American group is already calling for a boycott of the Marlins until Ozzie Guillen steps down or is fired.

The bissue is a comment Guillen made:

The group, described as a hard-line, anti Fidel Castro group, is outraged over comments made by Guillen in the upcoming issue of Time Magazine, in which the manager is quoted as saying: “I love Fidel Castro.”

Guillen has already apologized, but that won’t stop the controversy.

On a lighter note, some Marlins found a clothing store in Miami and had some interesting clothing to wear from Cincinnati to Philadelphia.  See that here.


Happy (Mostly) opening day!
