I do like that idea... noting mid-season All Stars and post season, and league ratings and stuff like that. All tells the story of the season.
After reading this thread this morning I ordered it for the first time. In previous years I'd considered it but kind of figured I could get most of the content elsewhere on TD or other Twins sites. This thread convinced me otherwise and now I can't wait for it to arrive. I agree with Wookiee, I don't get not advertising it. I mean, you're not selling wrapping paper here. You guys provide the best Twins content out there for zero dollars and zero cents. If you battle your tails off to create something this detailed and in depth and someone complains about it being promoted on TD I don't think that's your problem.

Done! You're hired!
How about this for marketing purposes? I do know that tables at Twinsfest go at crazy rates, but how about joining with an established someone who will be there and willing to be there and sign copies (and give that established someone a commission) You will be there anyways, might as well make something out of it...
I agree, Thry. I'm all for you guys marketing this more -- and don't be afraid to use this website -- your website -- to do it. It's just going to take some creativity.
Just thinking aloud -- I know you have an advertising relationship with the Cedar Rapids team. If they're at TwinsFest (I bet they are -- I know New Britain has a booth), see if you can get a tiny corner in their booth. If not this year, then try and make it part of your advertising deal with them next year.
Seth can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we discussed this last year. It had to do with licensing, which would cost 150% of the profit.
Licensing is quite expensive, and frankly, with the # that we sell, we would lose a ton of money, even if we sold more. I'd rather make the tiny bit that we do than lose a bunch! :)
Any advertising ideas are welcomed!!
