2020 Reds

Write for Reds Content Plus!

We’re interested in finding new writers for the 2020 Cincinnati Reds season.

Our site is dedicated to in-depth and original statistical analysis of the Reds and baseball more broadly. If you’re unsure what that means, please take a moment to read a few of our posts. That emphasis doesn’t mean every post has to be stats-centric. We’d like to publish a variety of styles. That said, we have a pro-saber slant. If you think “analytics” is a four-letter word, that Wins for pitchers and RBI for hitters are good ways to measure players, this probably isn’t the fit for you. But if you’re enthusiastic about learning new information and sharing it with others, this may be the place for you.

The ideal RC+ candidate(s) would:

  • Have in-depth knowledge about the Cincinnati Reds
  • Have experience writing about baseball (please include samples or links)
  • Have working familiarity with FanGraphs, Baseball-Reference and Statcast
  • Commit to writing from March-September 2020 (we’re willing to work with your schedule, of course)

Our business model doesn’t depend on advertising, clicks or auto-load videos. Our revenue comes from reader contributions and subscriptions based on the value they see in what we write. We share that revenue among our writers. We don’t tolerate personal attacks. That includes on other writers, commenters, Reds players, managers, coaches, front office or ownership. We also don’t permit profanity or vulgarity. We want parents of young Reds fans to allow their kids to enjoy our site.

In short: Be interesting, original and civil.

If you’re interested in writing about the 2020 season for Reds Content Plus, please let us know at redscontentplus@gmail.com.

Steve Mancuso is a lifelong Reds fan who grew up during the Big Red Machine era. He’s been writing about the Reds for more than ten years. Steve’s fondest memories about the Reds include attending a couple 1975 World Series games, being at Homer Bailey’s second no-hitter and going nuts for Jay Bruce at Clinchmas. Steve was also at all three games of the 2012 NLDS, but it’s too soon to talk about that.
