    The Athletic

    Anybody paying for this?

    I signed up finally, (Jays and Rangers all I care about) thought it would be primo, alas, it's fucking awful. Carpinello is err.. OK, but the other primary writer has no business writing about the NYR. It's incredibly disappointing. The latest breakdown of the Rangers D situation reads like it's for a person who just discovered what the Rangers were yesterday.

    Phil, how have you not been hired there?

    I wouldn’t pay for it for Rangers coverage.
    It’s worth it for Pronman and LeBrun’s stuff and I enjoy a lot of their stuff on the NFL.

    I enjoy it for the Miami Dolphins/KC Royals, and the national articles. As far as the Rangers, I only read Carp.

    The platform itself is great if you want solid coverage about other teams. It's just not good for the Rangers, because the guy they got to lead it is the poster boy for what a beat writer was in 1992.

    Also, what value would I have to them? I'm no one. LOL.

    It like paying for the news, weather or porn online. There is so much free stuff out there, why pay for it?

    Because what you are paying for is better than the free stuff. It's premium content.

    Only a little. Shayna is good. Carp is not.

    Outside of the fluff pieces, you get the same info for free. Shayna is OK. I follow her on Twitter and she doesn’t have anything anyone else is saying. Anything breaking you can get off Twitter. Outside of the Rangers, I don’t need any other in depth coverage of any teams.

    Figured I would share this here:

    https://slickdeals.net/f/12858208-1-...eSearchV2Algo1

    1.99/month special for the 1st year. I have been waiting for a discount to give it a shot. Can't beat $24 for a year.
