Happy Holidays from IIATMS

Well, the world hasn’t ended yet, so I guess we can just about safely assume that the coming holidays will go off as planned. For most of us, that means two things: a) in-laws, and b) a lull in the Hot Stove season. Not that there’s any rule against making moves during the Christmas-New Year’s week, but in general pretty much nothing meaningful happens in this period, as front office officials, agents, and pretty much everyone else takes the time off to enjoy the season and all that. This year is likely to be much of the same, especially since there aren’t very many interesting free agents left on the market to sign.

The downside for us is that less news means less things to write about, so things will probably be pretty slow around here as well. Not non-existent by any means, just a bit more sporadic. Unless something noteworthy happens (like, oh I don’t know, the Giants getting knocked out of playoff contention on Sunday) I don’t plan on posting anything between now and Wednesday, as I instead dedicate myself to cleaning the house and pawning off gift wrapping spending time with the family. So let me take a second to wish you a very Merry Christmas, a belated Happy Hanukkah, or just a sincere hope that, whatever holiday you celebrate, it finds you in good health and good cheer.

  1. I won't know what to do with myself if I don't have an interesting piece to read here! Maybe IIATMS could post the best of IIATMS for 2012. A re-posting of maybe the 10 most commented on stories you guys did here in 2012 (including all the comments).

    In any case, I wish all the IIATMS staff a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!

    Best regards, God bless, and God bless the Yankees!

  2. "the world hasn’t ended"

    Time, perhaps, to wax transcendentally. Maybe the world did come to an end, but was subsequently replaced by a world which, for all intents and purposes, appears to be identical. A win for both end-of-worlders and non-believers.

  3. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. I've had a lot of fun posting to this site. Look forward to continuing in 2013.

  4. Merry Christmachanukwanzaakah to all and a Happy New Year until Chinese New Year then Happy Chinese New Year until Rosh Hashannah! <3

  5. Merry happy whatever you celebrate. Love this site and the posters here. I'll be waiting/reading, hoping for something to brighten the days till spring training.

  6. Have a great one, Brien – hopefully, without too many in-laws. If you get totally bored, maybe have a look at the link widget? ;)

    (with the slow season, and no one saying much, it helps to have more sources.) :D
