Kevin Reynolds and I are on this week’s UCB Radio. We discuss the new shortened show format and Kevin’s love of long, wordy answers and the hate for Lance Lynn. Oh, and Mike Matheny. Always Mike Matheny.
The 2013 United Cardinal Bloggers Annual released yesterday on Amazon.com. It’s a good review of last year’s team and performance from some of the best of the UCB. It’s a good preparation for this year during this final two week stretch before spring training officially begins.
Last year we had hopes of selling the Annual as a full color magazine complete with pictures and heavy duty layout. It turned out well and was released as a PDF, but the Cardinals had an issue with their logos being in pictures that we were using. Rather than challenge them, we decided to play nice and not sell it. This year, no copyrighted logos in pictures and an eBook.
Yesterday it was briefly in the Top-100 Baseball Books sold on Amazon and has hung out in the Top-50 Baseball Kindle eBooks sold on Amazon almost since it’s release, which is really something. As I write this it is currently #36 of Baseball Books sold in the Kindle store.
I did not write for it, however, I did put the eBook together and designed the front cover.
So go check it out on Amazon. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you should be able to rent it as part of that program.
Kevin Reynolds and I host this week’s UCB Radio Hour. We’ll talk about his experiences at Winter Warm-Up, Stan Musial, Jason Motte, Adam Wainwright, and any other Cardinals’ developments we can think of. And if all else fails, I’m sure we’ll beat the Matheny horse a few more times.
