The Lou Gehrig of Blogs (me) will not be in the starting lineup for the first time in 149 posts.
Our new author has agreed to the basic framework of a contract, and is presently negotiating some details with Pinstripes' people as it relates to content (limit Mets news to one paragraph per post, left-wing politics to one sentence per, and no comments on Jeter's orientation . . . not that there's anything wrong with that), and incentive clauses as it relates to marketing royalties when certain milestones are reached. We expect the deal to be finalized by Saturday, with a debut of a post shortly to follow there after.
Pinstripes did reach out to key members of the Yankees to get their take on the impact this would have on the organization but Hank Steinbrenner could not be reached, Girardi did not return our calls, and Brian Cashman threatened legal action if we ever tried calling his office again.
57 is soon to be in the starting rotation.
