I want to sincerely thank everyone who donated to the Starting Pitcher Guide. The response to the guide exceeded even my wildest dreams. I’m going to be drawing for the contest winners early next week after I get back from visiting my parents for Easter. If you still want to get in, feel free (in the upper right corner). I outlined the details of the contest here. Basically, anyone who donated to the guide is entered and you can win either a Justin Verlander or Tim Lincecum jersey. I’ll make a YouTube video of me drawing the winners and then email them to secure shipping addresses.
I am also going to put together questionnaire/survey type deal regarding the guide in order to get input for next year’s version. I plan to make it even better so if you like 2011’s, then just wait for 2012. No, I mean it, wait… we just started this season, try to enjoy it!
I got a couple of emails the last day or two asking about the Donation Jersey Contest related to the Starting Pitcher Guide. Instead of charging, I wanted to give users of the SP Guide the option to donate to the Guide if they saw fit. In exchange for the donation, you not only get the Guide of course, but you also get entered into a drawing for a Tim Lincecum or Justin Verlander jersey. I will do the drawing shortly after Opening Day (which is March 31st). This gives everyone a legitimate chance to read through the Guide and truly decide if they want to donate and enter the contest.
I wanted to sincerely thank all of you who have already donated. I am truly grateful that you deemed the project worthy of your hard-earned money. It’s a really cool feeling when people make that kind of commentary on your work by choosing to give their money for the product. So all of you who have donated, thank you very much and also sit tight as you are entered into the drawing. Anyone still interested, there is time and there is no threshold donation to get you in. If you donate, you’re in. I will probably record the drawing on my FlipCam and throw it up on YouTube. Like I said, that will be in early April sometime so enjoy the book and good luck in your drafts & auctions that are coming up.
