Contest: The Newberg Report

I've written here a few times about Jamey Newberg, the Dallas-area attorney and rabid Rangers fan who writes a blog, The Newberg Report, about his favorite team.

Every year, Jamey puts together a year's worth of posts in what he calls the "bound edition." Makes sense. What I'm giving away today is the 2010 Bound Edition, which goes from October 13, 2008 to October 12, 2009.

You may wonder, "Why in the world would I want to read this? I'm not a Rangers fan, and it's dated, anyway."

My answer is, because it's a great deal of fun. Because you get to go back and watch a very literate fan live through a year with his club. And it's cool also because, while the Rangers missed the playoffs in 2009, they made a significant leap, and you see how Jamey senses greater things coming. And of course, they did.

The book also features detailed Rangers prospect rankings (dated, of course), and a set of explanations to help you understand some of baseball's more arcane procedures like waivers. 

Oh, and it's also free. I'll send my copy to the first person who e-mails me - at kdavidoff@newsday.com - with the correct answer to this question:

Who is the Rangers' all-time leader in games played?

UPDATE, 2:21 p.m.: We have a winner! T.J. knew that Rafael Palmeiro has played in more regular-season games than anyone else - 1,573. Interestingly, if Michael Young (1,508) sticks around, he could easily pass both Palmeiro and Jim Sundberg (1,512) to take the all-time lead.
