January is traditionally a slow month in terms of baseball news. I also will have a few weeks off prior to spring training.
But in the interest of keeping the blog active, we are going to do what we did last year and have pinch hitters for the month.
Here’s the deal: If you have a Yankees blog or a general baseball blog, you can write whatever you want (500 words max). While I would prefer to promote the work of a fellow blogger, consideration will be given to regular posters who have something to say. Your site also can’t charge a subscription fee.
You’ll get a link to your blog, a big audience and I’ll post your photograph if you want.
If you’re interested, please e-mail me by the end of this week. This will be first come, first served with preference given to those who have Yankees blogs and didn’t get their shot last season.
I do ask this: Please have a very specific, focused subject in mind, not just your take on the 2008 season or what other moves you think the team should make. By the time your piece is published, all the moves will probably be made.
It can literally be about anything that is Yankees related. Something historical, your personal experiences, etc.
If you’re interested, drop me a line with your idea and we’ll get a roster together. Thanks.
UPDATE, Tuesday at 12:22 a.m.: OK, no more entries. We’ve had 50+ requests for 31 spots.
