HIT the LINKS: Archives › Craig Calcaterra











Throughout my many years playing this game, I have come across many websites that specialize in fantasy sports. I saved them all and many of them are included in the


FANFOOD Fantasy Baseball Tools


Each week a different website, twitter feed or mobile application will be highlighted and reviewed for you before you “HIT the LINKS”. As always, it’s followed by a great recipe, this time it’s Macaroni Cheesy Corn.


This week I ask you to check out the hardest working writer in baseball, lead Blogger-in-Chief over at HardballTalk, Craig Calcaterra.  If you are looking for daily recaps, breaking news or just good plain Phillies bashing, he is the writer for you.

He’s a lawyer by training, having spent 11 years as a business litigation and Constitutional law attorney.  His specialties were Elections law, Public Ethics law, Civil litigation.

But that’s all behind him now as he follows his true passions, family and baseball and writing about it.


“Writing was something I always wanted to do. Even when I was a teenager. I didn’t know what it entailed or really what I’d write about other than having a vague idea it’d be about sports, but I felt like I wanted to be a writer. I lost that thread for a long time, but when I started to get burned out on the law I tried to think about what I really wanted to do and what I was good at. And it occurred to me: writing.”


He posts many articles a day both on NBC Sports’ HardballTalk blog, and his own personal blog. Both are worth the read.


“My day usually starts the night before. During the season I start composing my “And That Happened” daily recap feature as the east coast games end around 10:30 or so. I can usually get all but the west coast game recaps done before I go to sleep at 11:30 or so. I wake up between 5:30 and 6 AM, finish the west coast recaps and put the post up. I do morning things like get my kids ready to school between 6 and 8 and then from then until around 5:30 or 6pm I just scan the news, Twitter and read emails while posting twice an hour or so depending on what’s happening. Evening is with the family and then it starts again.”
