The Slurve is an email newsletter published every day during the baseball season* and frequently during the offseason. In our email we aim to give you one original take each day, along with all the best writing and most important news: every team, every day. We think there has never been as much good writing about the game as there is now. But a lot of it is buried underneath junk: rage-inducing "lists", faked debates, and NSFW content that you don't want your kid or co-worker seeing over your shoulder.
Let the Slurve send you everything you need and the best of the rest.
Brian Kenny MLB TV "Great perspective... " "Captures the tone correctly, after 15 years of this..."
Will Leitch writer at Sports on Earth and founder of Deadspin: "Very much enjoying morning fix of The Slurve"
Deadspin: "Cool baseballnewsletter... Very much worth the subscription."
Ross Douthat, New York Times columnist: "I am... a subscriber."
Jeff Pearlman, author of The Bad Guys Won and The Rocket that fell to earth: "Props to an excellent new baseball site, The Slurve."
Baseball is fun. It makes long days easier and occasionally it awes us. We hope The Slurve does the same.
