The offseason awaits
This blog post would be lacking if I didn’t begin it with a big and sincere thank you.
Thank you to you, the readers, for making a job that is already quite enjoyable even more so. Your interaction and feedback was critical in helping to direct coverage this season, and your passion for this team and for this sport is second to none. I saw that at the ballpark all summer, and I heard it through the hundreds of emails I received all season long.
The good news is that while pitchers and catchers won’t be reporting to Bradenton, Fla., for a little more than four months, coverage of the Pirates is certainly not stopping here. There is probably no question I get more often than ‘What do you do during the offseason?’ Turns out there really is no off in offseason when it comes to covering a Major League club.
News will be thin in October, as it is all across baseball. But once November hits, you can expect daily stories on pirates.com. The blog will also be an integral part of coverage all winter long, too, as will Twitter. I’ll be spending much of the next month covering the postseason and if there are Pittsburgh connections in the series I am assigned to, I will bring those to you, as well.
Plans are to have a weekly Inbox all winter, and we’ll begin that with the next edition on Monday. To submit questions (and I would suspect there will be plenty of them), email me at Jenifer.Langosch@MLB.com. Please include your first name, last initial and hometown.
If there is anything else in particular that you want to ensure is a part of the offseason coverage, don’t hesitate to make the suggestion. Remember, I do this job for you.
Thank you again for your faithful readership. I enjoyed the ride and – despite the team’s final record – I hope you did, too.
