My name is Doug Rush. I am 29 years old from Toms River, New Jersey.
After four years as the Featured Columnist of the New York Giants and New York Yankees, I have decided to leave Bleacher Report to pursue other options in sports writing.
So now, as of March 2013, I will be writing for Giants 101, www.giants101.com, covering breaking news and feature stories solely on the New York Giants.
As of May 2013, I will also be writing for Yankees 101, www.yankees101.com, covering the same kind of stories on the New York Yankees.
Both Giants 101 and Yankees 101 are sites under Sports Media 101, www.sportsmedia101.com. Sports Media 101 was just featured in the New York Business Journal as one of the next up-and-coming sites: http://www.bizjournals.com/newyork/news/2013/05/21/nyc-based-sports-media-startup.html
I leave B/R as its No. 1 Yankees and Giants writer by an extremely wide margin, an accomplishment I was very proud of.
For the fans who followed my work for four years, I thank you all for your support and hope you continue to follow me on Giants 101 (if you're a die-hard fan, you should already be clicking the link to go there).
Some of my accomplishments from B/R include:
First joined Bleacher Report- June 19, 2009
New York Yankees Featured Columnist- December 23, 2009
New York Yankees Community Leader- March 17, 2010

Haven't seen you around, Doug.
Miss your posts Doug ..
I thought you'd get a laugh out of it.
I'll probably post again when the Yankees inevitable fall apart and people are laughing at them in September.
Best of luck. You are missed here.
I found out from B/R Administrators that you didn't "leave the site": You were KICKED OFF IT.
Doug, I got curious about where you went. I read your updated profile and got my answer. I do not know how B/R makes its contractual decisions and I have no idea who is compensated for their work and who is not. Nevertheless, I want to thank you for all the excellent reporting and analysis that you have given on the Yankee page. All the best. You are already missed.
Thank you, Doug.
You will be missed. Unlike a lot of the others here you were a good sport about the heckling and always seemed to be pretty fair and unbiased in your reporting.
I'm actually not going to be posting here for too much longer, if you can believe that. Like yourself, the fun has kind of run it's course and it's time to move on to other things.
I sincerely wish you the best.
P.S. Regardless, ...Everyone is still laughing at the NY Yankees!
Rumor has it that you were driven off the site by a troll named Goon, who continuously tormented you for four years.
Any truth to this rumor?
We're going to miss your articles, Doug.
And yea, I used to write for Bleacher. This is a pseudonym. Their operation is pretty douchey.
Great work in the month of March, Doug. 400k reads is unreal. Keep up the solid coverage.
