A cover letter

To MLB.com,

The Mets once took a chance on a young 6-foot-4 pitcher from Kansas named Mike Pelfrey. With a stellar debut and successful ride with the Mets, I know it's now time for MLB.com to take a chance on another 6-foot-4 Kansas kid to cover the Mets.

OK, so outside of our geographic and height similarities, there is really nothing we have in common. I have spent years in newsrooms matching wits with deadlines and projects that have garnered me several regional and national awards. Pelfrey wears a mouth piece when he plays…

As an ardent Royals fan, it would be a great opportunity to write about and cover a team that is, well, not losing 100 games each season.

Thank you for your consideration,
Mike

Dear Sir,

We have never actually found a correlation between height and journalistic ability. However, having read portions of your blog we do note that you possess one of the most important qualifications for sports reporting... heavy drinking. We may be in contact.

P.S. Remember, unless you've used steroids in the past 5 years you are not eligible to even be near MLB.
