BP Announcements

Free Days

by Ben Lindbergh

Everything published at BP from Friday through Monday is free. Why free? Partly because it's the opening weekend of the regular season! But mostly because every once in a while, we like to lower the paywall and let people wander around turning on the faucets, checking the drains, and either telling us they love what we've done with the place or making awkward small talk until they decide it wouldn't be impolite to leave.

If you're just visiting, welcome! We hope you'll want to spend some time on our website, reading our many excellent articles about baseball and browsing our sortable statistics, player cards, and fantasy tools. If you've already subscribed—well, first of all, we appreciate your patronage. But we also hope you'll help us spread the word. Send some articles you've enjoyed recently to your friends, and recommend that they read them. Then slowly, gently, break the news that your friendship is over unless they subscribe. If they refuse, you'll know they didn't really value the relationship. You can thank us later for weeding out your false friends.

If you really loved it, you'd have written "absolutely adore alliteration."

Just to be clear: Is everything on the site free today, or is everything published today free today?

Everything published today, plus site features like the player cards, sortables, depth charts, Player Forecast Manager, etc. And, of course, all of our articles a year old and older are always free.

Doesn't seem free yet. Can't access BP-marked articles from today. And when you say "free", do you mean everything? Like PFM to non-fantasy subscribers?

The free weekend promotion runs from Friday through Monday. And yes, it's not just articles. PFM will be free for non-subscribers, too.
