I'm not claiming to know a lot about sales or marketing, but can it really be the best use of Slate's advertising space to repeatedly offer me this 1999 Baseball Year in Review video
, or this slightly discounted copy of the 2000 Tampa Bay Devil Rays Yearbook
(in case I wanted to relive their magical 69-92 season)? There is free shipping on orders over $99, in case I wanted to order 13 of these keepers. I swear, these same pieces of crap keep popping up every other time I check the site. Do I have some kind of "Will buy old garbage" cookie on my hard drive or something? Sheesh.
