Free advance copy of The Cheater’s Guide to Baseball

DMZ · February 2, 2007 at 11:01 am · Filed Under General baseball, Off-topic ranting, Site information 

I hold in my hands one rare advance uncorrected reader’s copy of The Cheater’s Guide to Baseball. I’m going to give it away to a USSM reader today.

If you’d like it, autographed or not, leave a comment below and I’ll randomly select someone and send it to them. The one caveat: to prevent mass registrations, your account must have been registered before today. Long-time lurkers, apologies, but your day will come.

Also, a reminder – March 3rd, Peoria. Meet two major league GMs, Jonah Keri, me, and get a Cheater’s Guide bookmark or something similarly exciting. Check it out.

And remember, this is an uncorrected reader’s copy, it’s almost as full of errors and mistakes as the final version.

Update: comments closed.

    Oo oo! Pick me! I won’t have time to read it for 3 months and when I do, I won’t write a review of it, but I still want the first copy!! I promise I won’t spill coffee on it for at least a day! Seriously.

    April is too far off for TCGTB, or the beginning of the VE!

    I won’t get it. I never win these things.

    We get to Peoria about 3 hours too late for the feed, but an autographed advance copy would be an excellent parting gift 🙂

    I’d certainly be interested in a copy.

    Well, I haven’t been able to post the last few times I tried, but I’d love it. I’ll even read it and do a review (such as it is) for the site!

    Oooh oooh! Pick me! Pick me!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a reader’s copy — is it printed and bound just like the final book? Presumably it doesn’t have a dust jacket with readers’ blurbs on it, since they have to read the book before they can comment on it.

    I WIN!

    Hmmm . . . this has gotten to be quite a list. I never win against these sorts of odds — but this would be a great time for that not to hold true. (And FWIW, I think it would be cooler to have a reader’s copy than to have one out of the regular print run.)

    I’d love to have a copy out here in Michigan!

    Save the book, I am already pre-ordered at Amazon, but I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the four of you and you especially DMZ, for the quality work, information and discussion you have provided through the years.
