The below press release arrived in e-mail today from Yardbarker.com.


LOS ANGELES ANGELS OF ANAHEIM ACE PITCHER JOHN LACKEY LAUNCHES BLOG AT YARDBARKER.COM

Yardbarker.com, the premier destination on the Internet for unfiltered sports commentary by fans and bloggers, has launched an MLB blog with John Lackey, ace pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, it was announced today.

Lackey, a six-year major league veteran, will share his daily life experiences and answer questions from fans throughout the 2007-08 baseball season.

“I really like what Yardbarker is doing and I love the idea of connecting directly with the fans,” Lackey said. “Not everyone gets to experience daily life in a clubhouse or preparing to face the Red Sox or traveling to Milwaukee to play the Indians because the weather’s too bad in Cleveland. It will be fun to give the fans a little closer look at what I experience during the season.”

Lackey was third in the American League with 190 strikeouts in 2006 and his 389 Ks over the last two full seasons trails only Johan Santana among AL pitchers. In 2002, Lackey became only the second rookie in MLB history to start and win a game seven of the World Series, a 4-1 decision over the San Francisco Giants.

“We started Yardbarker to offer sports fans the very best sports content on the web and there is no better source for that than hearing from the athletes themselves,” Yardbarker Co-Founder Pete Vlastelica said. “Not only is John Lackey one of the best pitchers in baseball, he has a great personality and shoots straight from the hip. His blog promises to be insightful and entertaining.”

I have to wonder, though, how unhappy the Angels’ image-conscious front office management will be about Lackey posting a blog they don’t control …

I drop a leave a response whenever I like a article on a site or I have something to contribute to the
conversation. Usually it’s caused by the sincerness
communicated in the article I browsed. And on this article John Lackey Joins the
Blogosphere FutureAngels.com. I was actually moved

Is it simply me or do a few of these comments appear as if they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like to
keep up with you. Would you make a list all of your community pages
like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin
profile?
