Quick Hits: Daily Tailgate and some USA Today blogging


As we count down the hours until 6:07 p.m. tomorrow night, allow me to present a few ways to entertain yourself. First up: the Daily Tailgate. Dan Lewis, one of the founders of ArmChair GM, has started a new free daily e-mail newsletter that offers up some quick morning shots of sports news and culture. Today’s issue, for instance, takes on an NLDS preview, some analysis on the Erin Andrews peeper case and a preview of tonight’s sports TV. As part of an effort to draw in some new subscribers, Dan has opened up a raffle for RAB readers. Those who sign up by Friday via this link will be entered into a drawing. The winner can pick from a Bobby Richardson autographed baseball or one of three framed Yankee Stadium commemorative collages with authentic dirt form the old Stadium. Check it out.

Meanwhile, in addition to my RAB duties, I’ll be contributing to USA Today’s Blogging Baseball site during the Yanks’ October run. The community is located at that link, and you can find my Yanks’ page right here. Now that the Yanks have an ALDS opponent, I’ll begin to work on some brief analysis and comments on the games.

    Congrats on the gig, Ben.

  2. Matt says:

    Does anyone know if we can listen to the game on 1050 ESPN tomorrow or are we stuck with John “It is high it is….Caught” Sterling and Suzyn “OMG is She Awful” Waldman?

  3. Matt says:

    I can honestly say they must be the worst broadcast team this side of Buck and McCarver.

  4. Jake H says:

    Ben putting the RAB brand out there. World domination coming soon.

  5. crapulent aka I said good day sir says:

    Wow Ben, how do you get a gig like that? (did they come to you or do you go to them?)

    I assumed you guys weren’t profiting from this site. But then again I have no idea how one profits from a blog.

    CONGRATS Ben and RAB!
