I didn’t come up with the Pinch Hitters series, but it’s become a tradition here at the LoHud Yankees Blog. The series has become incredibly popular during those slow weeks in January and February, and I love getting new opinions and points of view on the blog.
Of course, we’ll be running the Pinch Hitters series again this winter. We’re looking for anyone who would like to write a post — 400 words or so — about anything related to the Yankees. It could be your opinion of offseason moves, or your indignation at Don Mattingly not being in the Hall of Fame. It could be your defense of Jesus Montero as a legitimate superstar, or your plea for the Yankees to deal Montero as soon as possible.
Whatever you have to say, email your ideas to me — a few sentences explaining what you want to write — and I’ll make some choices to start organizing a schedule. In early January, I’ll begin contacting the folks chosen for the series. Please, no more than one proposal per person. It’s not necessarily first come, first serve, so take your time coming up with what you want to write.
The absolute cutoff for submissions will be Friday, January 6. Send your ideas to: cjennings (at) lohud.com. As always, I’m looking forward to reading them.
