Fan blog FAQ

For those of you interested in the fan blog we announced yesterday, you still have time to apply. Fill out this form by 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday to be eligible. We'll contact the top candidates next week to ask for a sample blog post; the blog itself will launch in September.

Also, we have answered some of your frequently-posted questions about the new blog over on The Early Lead. Check it out, and ask more questions in the comments there if you have them.

maybe they could post the names/handles of the people who make the first cut, and we could vote them off, one by one...

A question - Is the WaPo going to set up separate fanblogs for each team off this cattle call, or will this be a 'mash-up' with selected posters serving as the voice of each team? If it's the latter, prepare for even more Redskins 24/7 crap.

I'll just apologize in advance ...

Well, there's thirteen hundred and fifty-two baseball bloggers in Natsville
And they can post more posts than the number of lobbyists in all of Capitol Hill.
There's thirteen hundred and fifty-two baseball bloggers in Natsville,
And anyone that opens a Blogger account can write twice as better than I will.

Natville Stats
quote splits on Walter Johnson
Natsville Stats
Know who is overdue
Natsville Stats
read Bill James since they's babies
Natsville stat
do math before they're two...

It was RFK, you might say DC was a baseball proverbial punchline
When I read about VORP and FIP and BABIP and slash lines,
And the Internet man said every one is a better way to measure the strength of a team's bench,
and up north there ain't nobody buys it, and I said, "Did you try French?"

Well, there's sixteen thousand eight hundred twenty-one women in Nats Park,
All their friends talk stats and they ain't left out if one of their kids starts,
Because despite what you may have heard on the TV they do talk about baseball,
And I sure am glad I got a chance to say a word about the statistical mothers in Natsville.

Of course, not all women are mothers. I'm just saying... :-)

(But it's parody, I know.)

you're assuming they're the same people, 1a--the women, and the statistical mothers.
