The Sacrifice Bunt Newsletter is a frequent e-mail newsletter for baseball-obsessed San Diego Padres fans. It features in-depth analysis on everything Padres and baseball, conveniently delivered straight to your inbox three or four times a week.
Yearly subscriptions cost $29.99, and monthly subscriptions are also available for $2.99 per month. For the first month of The Sacrifice Bunt Newsletter, $10 out of every $100 in annual subscriptions will go to a San Diego-based charity.
To subscribe, use the PayPal button over on the right sidebar. Once you do that, I’ll add your e-mail address to the Google Group (you’ll have to accept the invite) and then you’ll start receiving new articles. You should also be able to view the archives through the Google Group at anytime.
(If your PayPal account is attached to an old e-mail address that you no longer use, please e-mail me with your current one after subscribing.)
So, what do you get?
- Depending on the time of year, you’ll get at least three or four full-length articles each week focusing on the Padres, covering everyone from Austin Allen to Brad Zunica, and everything from transactions to the draft to A.J. Preller’s wardrobe to the greater trends of the game.
- Articles will aim to combine the right mix of analysis, commentary, and humor. There will be a focus on the obvious, big-picture things, but also plenty of attention given to the minutiae, the kind of stuff that might get overlooked by outlets more concerned with page clicks.
- For a preview of the kind of content you’re in for, check out my archives at Padres Public and Baseball Prospectus, as well as the excerpts page.
There is plenty of excellent Padres coverage out there for free (and for pay) in the vast and growing expanse of the internet, but I’m going to do my best to make this the kind of writing and analysis that’s hard to find elsewhere. Plus, The Sacrifice Bunt Newsletter is cheaper than the Red Copper 5 Minute Chef (as seen on TV), and I promise it won’t overcook your omelet.
I hope you’ll consider subscribing.
Full disclosure: I don’t actually live in San Diego, but I’ve been following the Padres closely, from afar, since the early 2000s.
