Back in the day (last Feb. 27) there was only mainstream media blog on the Yankees and you’re reading it.
We welcome all competition, so here are links to some of the new ones (in no particular order):
The New York Times has something called Bats. Tyler Kepner (who is rocking a Vanderbilt sweatshirt today) will report on the Yankees and Ben Shpigel on the Mets. It’s amazing Tyler has the time given his 17 children. Ben is friends with Sam Borden, but don’t hold that against him. Both guys are terrific writers and know their stuff.
Over at the New York Post there’s a Yankees blog written by George King, who knows everybody in baseball. Perhaps one day he’ll tell us about the time he interviewed Grover Cleveland Alexander.
Joel Sherman of the Post has put aside his usual busy schedule of humanitarian work to write a spring training blog. Given his many sources, it will be a worthwhile read.
Not that you care about the Mets. But if you do, check out Mark Hale of the Post. Mark is very well-connected. He sends out more instant messages and e-mails than that guy in Nigeria who wants to give you a million dollars.
From out in the swamps of Jersey, The Record has a new blog that promises to provide “the sights, sounds and odors of spring training.” The odors? Thanks, anyway. Sharply dressed Pete Caldera is on the Yankees and slovenly Steve Popper on the Mets. Check them out and tell ’em who sent you.
So there you have it, the new blogs. Just make sure you stay loyal to us.
