Minor Changes At New English D

As lots of you probably know, I got a new job in February and keeping up with those demands and all of my various writing commitments has left little room for much else in my schedule. In June, I authored my final TigsTown post in an effort to focus my efforts and today I’m announcing the end of the nightly recaps, “How Was The Game?”

The upshot of this is that I’m going to reinvest the HWTG time into putting up more analysis on the site. Lately, I’ve been writing one main post a week and I’d like to get back to doing more, now that I’ve opened up some time. The recaps generally didn’t take a ton of time given their brief nature, but 10 minutes a night is more than an hour a week and that’s probably time I could spend adding two more real posts a week. And in reality, the recaps get much, much less traffic than the analysis and commentary, so I’m probably also disappointing a couple of you.

I’ve spent the last few months figuring out how to blend writing into a normal 830-5 schedule, and I think I’ve figured it out. With commitments at FanGraphs, managing duties at BTBS, and the occasional Hardball Times piece, I want to make sure the time I devote to the Tigers is value added time. The recaps, while fun at times, feel more like a burden and I don’t want to feel burdened by baseball.

So, less HWTG, more other content. Everything else is the same. Thanks for reading and go Tigers.

  1. Good plan. Leave the recaps to Old Media; anyway most of us know how the game went.
