**READ FOR POSTING ARTICLES**
 
I would like for everyone to post articles like you see me do. As much as it seems like I never leave this place; i'm not always here. If it's just you on here by yourself, go onto ESPN or MLB.com and post up the latest news. I could careless if it doesn't generate one comment. Point is, when people who are potential members come on here and see no one is online but there is the latest news they know that people are on here and we stay current.

The majority of the time I am going to be the one to posting them, but if you get the chance, feel free to post them up.

Which leads me to this: How To Post Articles

Step one: find an article; like this: Mariners pay tribute to Greg Halman as players arrive at Spring Training | MLB.com: News.

Step two: Only quote about 1/4 to 1/2 of the blog for copyright reasons.

Step three: Quote the article. When done properly using this article it will look like this:

Quote:

When Mariners players arrived at their clubhouse Saturday for the start of Spring Training, each was greeted by a Greg Halman shirt hanging in his locker as a tribute to the teammate who was killed in November in his native Holland.

The shirts were purchased by Mariners outfielder Mike Carp, a close friend of Halman's from their days coming up in the Minor Leagues together.

"It's just a reminder to not take life for granted," Carp said. "Value it. Appreciate it. It's just something guys can have in their lockers all year and keep him with us."
Step four: LINK THE BLOG!!! Last thing I need is an email from one of those sites saying we're stealing their stuff and are going to sue baseball forum.

Finished product: This is what you should end up with when done properly.

well, considering you asked me to, I guess I will. they never ask me on the Football Forum to post articles because one guy mainly does it but he is inactive most of the time as well. I'm on here more than anybody else so you could really use my help I guess.
