Welcome to the “new” Curly W Live Blog, which is a lot like the old one, except for one twist: I am pleased to announce that the Washington Nationals have asked me to come aboard and steward the keyboard in this space.
Going forward, this is the main spot where you can find my writing, along with plenty of other Nationals-related content.
Loyal Curly W Live blog readers may notice some changes over the next few months, and certainly when things get underway in the 2014 season.
We’re going to have more contributors, including myself, and the hope is that we will be able to provide a comprehensive inside look at the team by bringing all kinds of interesting stories to the forefront. That goes for all of our publications, too, including Inside Pitch, which is available in-season at the ballpark, and Nationals Magazine, where my writing will be featured as well.
When I left The Washington Times after three seasons on the Nationals beat, I mentioned that part of why I was doing so was because it was time for a change. While my role is different, and multi-faceted here, I will still be writing. I will still be a vocal part of the coverage of this team going forward. But this is also a new challenge for me, and a new opportunity. I couldn’t be more excited about the potential that lies ahead in bringing some of the best stories about this team to you, the fans.
From a technical standpoint, I have joined the Nationals as Director of Baseball Media Relations and New Media. So, in addition to working with the media, some of my responsibilities include overseeing our various social media channels. With that in mind — and to be sure that you don’t miss a thing — please follow the Nationals accounts on Twitter (@nationals), Facebook (facebook.com/nationals) and Instagram (@nationals), if you are not already.
I will remain active on my @acomak account on Twitter as well, but the best place to go will be @Nationals for all of your updates.
Thanks for taking a few minutes to read about what’s been going on here. This offseason should be an exciting one for the Nationals, and I’m looking forward to getting started.
