We'll continue the season with our blog-type columns. Whenever the mood strikes, be it stats night on Monday, the middle of a West Coast game on Wednesday night, or maybe even a Friday morning before I leave for work, I'll come here and post entries. Sometimes it will be a paragraph or two, sometimes longer.

I'll make sure I put a date on everything so you can easily tell what's new from what you may have already read. So feel free to come to this page often, or continue checking in once a week as the stats update, to check out and catch up on the latest entries in what I hope to be a season long blog.

If anyone else has anything to contribute, I'll be more than happy to post it here, with all credit given to the author of course. And if we get one of our infamous 20+ reply e-mail threads going, I may also opt to copy that into this space as well so it's saved for all posterity.

It's time for the 6th Annual League Champion Sports Illustrated cover. What a finish this season! They say that art mirrors life right? What was a foregone conclusion with a month left in the season quickly unraveled into a three team, final week dash to the finish. Congratulations to Walt Cherniak who found himself on top of the heap when the season ended. Would he trade his 2nd Full Monty title in for a Red Sox playoff run? Hmmm, I'm not so sure he would...

Thank you everyone for another most excellent baseball season, our 21st year of doing this thing in one form or another! Pencil in "sometime in late March" at Don's place for the 2012 Draft. 'til next season...
