During Summer 2013, Bryan was also a freelance writer for the New York Mets as a part of the Yahoo! Contributor Network. As a freelance writer, he was named one of the “Hot 500″ writers two months in a row (July, August) for the entire website. Many of his stories used research from AriBall.com, where he worked with Ari Kaplan (leading MLB analyst) and Fred Claire (former Dodgers GM) as an advanced stats baseball writer. Unfortunately, the contributor network no longer exists and the stories have been taken down. A screenshot, however, are included below.
