The Athletic Dallas has launched.

As I announced a couple weeks ago, I have joined the staff of The Athletic Dallas as a Rangers contributor. That’s where my stories will now appear. We launched this morning, minutes ago.

My first story — “My launch angle: The magnetism of duende,” on why I made the decision to accept the invitation to join The Athletic — is now up and in front of the paywall, free to all readers. You’re all welcome to come over and give it a look.

While you’re there, you can see stories — today alone — from Levi Weaver, one on why he decided to bring his craft to The Athletic and, later in the day, a tremendous feature on Bartolo Colon; from Bob Sturm, including volume 1 of his NFL Draft Digest, an inventory of the Cowboys’ off-season, and a targeted look at David Irving; from Sean Shapiro, on how the Stars might approach the upcoming trade deadline given lessons they learned a year ago; from Jeff Cavanaugh, who rolls out his current NFL mock draft; and more.

And that’s just from the DFW staff.

As hundreds (perhaps a light description) of you on this list already know, subscribing to The Athletic means you get access to everything it has to offer: Every market, every sport, local coverage and national coverage — with the ability to customize your own daily sports page. For one price. With zero ads.

And from now until next Monday (February 19th), Newberg Report readers can get a special discounted rate — 25% off plus a free Athletic Dallas T-shirt — by clicking here:

Thanks to all of you who have jumped aboard since we made the February 1st announcement. I hope the rest of you will give us a try. The lights are now on and the doors have swung wide open. Come on by.
