I want to thank all of those who volunteered to blog during my vacation. Overwhelmed by the response. Obviously we can’t fit all of them in, but we will have a few more weeks to fill before the season begins.
I’ve got Josh Thomson, 26, scheduled for Tuesday, July 27, and I’m waiting to hear from a few extra potential special guests. Not sure if any of them will want to do it. So at this point, let’s just schedule the first week.
Mitch Beck, who covers the Wolf Pack in his Howlings blog, is going to get us up to date on the kids who might be competing for jobs at training camp. That will be Wednesday.
Again, I will still be around and will pop in if there’s important news.
Just a reminder to the guest bloggers. Please let me know that you are OK with this schedule, and please remember to try to keep the posts relatively succinct (that means short). Eight-10-12 paragraphs ought to be plenty. If you want to go shorter or a little longer we can live with that, too.
I need your post the night before it is scheduled to run, OK? So e-mail it to me at rcarpini@LoHud.com.
Here’s the first week:
Monday, July 19: cwgatti.
Tuesday, July 20: miked.
Wednesday, July 21: Mitch Beck/Howlings blog.
Thursday, July 22: Ranger 909.
Friday, July 23: The White Plains Batman.
Saturday, July 24: Joekuh.
Sunday, July 25: Cynar.
I’ll put up a schedule for the following week around Wednesday.
AFTERNOON UPDATE, 4:45 P.M.: Steve Zipay is reporting that Michael Sauer has accepted his qualifying offer.
