It’s been a couple weeks, Yankee fans, since I’ve sparred with you, and if you saw Rob Neyer’s Wednesday Wangdoodles this morning, you’ll probably guess why. My own blog life is a little in flux, as I have begun partnering with Bill, formerly of The Daily Something, to create a new blog, The Platoon Advantage, that will be part of Rob’s Sweetspot Network. Our first posts are up, the first being an introduction to the new venture. Then Bill thinks the Pirates are in good hands, in particular because they fleeced Brian Cashman. Finally, I make my Anti-Mustache All Star team of players who should not be allowed to ever grow facial hair again.
But being Yankee fans, you don’t care about my comfort and success; you only want to know how this affects you and your beloved Yankees. After all, Manhattan is an island, and nothing exists south of, say, Trenton or west of Albany. So here’s the deal: Jason has graciously offered to let me continue having writing privileges here, and I am inclined to take him up on his offer because I love messing with you guys so much. After all, you guys (despite all the riff raff) tend to be the most passionate and informed fan base in the league (see how I’m pandering to you now? I’m a tease that way), and I love the comments I get here. Plus, it may help to provide an occasional outside perspective, just to keep you all grounded in reality. So I’ll continue posting here, but less often than my previous weekly articles. I’ll pop up when there’s something newsworthy (I mean really newsworthy, not Jeter passing Hal Chase in triples or something) or when I decide to have a very public disagreement with one of the other excellent contributors to this site.
In conclusion, thanks to all of you for reading, and I hope you’ll continue to follow me here, on my site, and on Twitter. I’m looking forward to spreading myself too thin and burning out. Continue reading This is not goodbye
