I apologize to regular readers for my Joel Zumaya-like track record of comebacks and delays in regards to writing about baseball. After several years of this, it still feels weird to me that other people actually enjoy my idiotic ramblings. So thank you. But my recent personal rough patch just got taken to another level with the shocking death the other day of one of my best friends in the world.
Look for this site to pick back up around Spring Training. I wanted to give those of you that check here daily a heads up. I just don’t have it in me right now to do this for a while. Thank you and I’ll see you in a couple months.
The following is for me. Read on, if you want. But I understand if you don’t. I just feel the need to put these thoughts out there for my own peace of mind. I need to pay tribute to a friend. Jerks have hearts too, you know.
