Next "Write Of Spring" Newsletter: A Pitching Primer

Do your eyes kinda gloss over when people start talking about a slider versus a sinker versus a cutter? Mine do. So this spring I asked for help from the Twins pitching staff. The resulting cheat sheet will be in this week's Write Of Spring Newsletter. It's free, but you must sign up soon as it will come out Wednesday night. Sign up by giving us your email in the box at the bottom of this story or use the box on the upper right of the front page.
The "Writer Of Spring" Newletter allows each of our writers to explore an in-depth topic during their time in Fort Myers, along with various notes they gather. Over 3000 people that have signed up, but if you haven't (or are not sure), sign up again; we'll resolve it if you're already signed up. Again, you can sign up:

1) Just below this story where is says "Subscribe to Twins Daily Email" or
2) On the upper right-hand area of Twins Daily's front page.

I'm looking forward to getting your feedback on our new Write Of Spring Newsletter, so be sure to sign up!

(And if you signup but don't get the newsletter early next week, you might want to check that pesty spam filter...)

Great article. Looking forward to more.

I really enjoyed reading it & look forward to more! Thanks!

A subscription to email is far better than waiting for wikileaks to publish it.

silly question, but if we already get TD emails, do we need to sign up?

Nope, you should have received the email either last night or this morning.

Newsletter? Is this the 1980's? I didn't know they were still a thing

Why are we signing up for a free newsletter? I could understand if it was behind a pay wall. And why can't we read old newsletters?

Boston Globe has a thriving cluster of them, catering to all interests. I like the "108 Stitches" baseball one - it's Red Sox oriented of course.

Why not just put it up as an article here on TD?? Then people could also comment on it, you could see what people think, etc.

We do start a thread for each story we publish in the newsletter. You'll get a link to it along with the link to the newsletter.
 
As for why not, it may allow us some future flexibility as far as content. The site has some built-in restrictions regarding what we can do with format and type of content. It could also lead to exclusive, in-depth  content, similar to the Offseason Handbook, but in a form that allows us to update the information as time passes, as opposed to quickly growing stale.

 

And one last edit to my post: since the word "pay wall" came up, Twins Daily was started specifically to avoid a pay wall. I should probably "never say never" but ... I don't ever see that happening. It runs counter to our DNA.

 

That said, we do offer some exclusive content like the Handbook (though recently, we changed that to a free-will donation) so I can see some additional exclusive content especially for community members that want to further support the community's writing and growth efforts.
