No, I'm not talking about the promotions staff, just a few things that, as the start of the season gets to us, I thought you might have interest in.  (It's also possible I've been hanging out with Bill Ivie too much, but that's not important right now.)  Although, if you missed it, Bill and I did talk to Terry Rodgers of the Cardinals promotions staff, so that's a great segue to all the other links I have!

Staying with the radio, I hope you had a chance to listen to last night's NL Central preview show.  If not, it's a two-hour gab fest with Pat of Where Have You Gone, Andy Van Slyke?, James of Astros County, Ryan of Prose and Ivy, Jaymes of Brewers Bar and Shawn of Cincinnati Reds Blog.  We focus on all the teams and then do a little general discussion, with some good-natured ribbing in there as well.  (I do look forward to seeing what James and Pat work up for their last place bet.)

As part of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance, I get a lot of great stuff coming across my e-mail desk, as it were.  One thing that came around this spring was Daniel over at Colorado Springs Fantasy Baseball Addict doing a "Finding Keepers" series.  Great stuff all the way through, but for Cardinal fans, they might want to check out his St. Louis writeup.

Aaron over at El Maquino is trying out a game this season, loosely based on MLB's Beat The Streak.  T-56 allows you to make picks when you want.  Miss a couple of days?  Your streak is still active as long as you've not made a wrong selection.  The general rules are up at the site, so get over there and check them out, then e-mail Aaron your pick before opening day.

Speaking of games, many of my readers are familiar with the YNOT games that I've run for numerous years, the last slew of which over at CardsClubhouse.  This year, we are opening it up a bit, at least at the beginning of the season.  Since the Clubhouse will be undergoing some renovations soon and it may be a while before the YNOT system is back up and running, we are going to use Google forms to do it this year, which means that you don't have to be a member of CCH to play.

If you've never done YNOT, you are missing out.  It's basically 10 questions about the upcoming series.  You put in your picks before the first pitch of the series, then we grade them after the series and see how you did.  We keep running totals and just have a lot of fun with it.

Now, the results will be posted over at CCH and later in the year, after all the renovations, we'll probably be back to doing it there, but this gives you a chance to try it out.  (Of course, if you aren't a member of CCH already, why not?)  Here's the link to the overarching season YNOT and the YNOT for the opening series against San Diego.

That may be all that I have at the moment, save that in five minutes Bill and I will be on Gateway to Baseball Heaven.  If you are reading this after the show, feel free to head over this way and see what we talked about.  I hope to get into some actual Cardinal discussion in tomorrow's post--it's been a while!

I love the interaction you have with your regional writers. I think it's fantastic and commend you as the driving force.

As for us up here in northern Maine, I did get together with those two stuffed monkeys and the best we could come up with is that they will pick the Game of the Day on my daily picks post, a daily feature which begin Opening Day.
