Pinch hitters on deck

Two weeks ago, Sam and I asked for volunteers for a series of Pinch Hit guest posts, a familiar series here at the LoHud Yankees Blog. The response was overwhelming.

We’ve chosen 27 pinch hitters — seemed like a good number — and the series will carry us into the weekend before spring training. The pinch hit posts will run every morning*, beginning tomorrow. The afternoon will remain open for the standard breaking news (or lack thereof) and regular blog commentary.

We recieved twice as many proposals as we have room to run, and most that weren’t chosen were left out because someone had already suggested a similar idea. As it stands, we’ve contacted the first half of the pinch hitters. I’ll be contacting the rest in the next day or two. I love getting different points of view on the blog, and the ideas submitted really were terrific. Thank you to everyone who emailed.

* Of course, if news breaks in the morning, plans can change on a day-to-day basis. This is just the plan for now.
