Now that's not to say I'm turning the lights out here. I've invested too much time in this blog to completely abandon it. While I won't cross post I will still do something here every now and then (three paragraph rants, play index oddities, etc.). I don't expect anyone to check back to see if I posted something new but if you follow me on twitter or Google+ you'll know when I do.
I started this blog in January of 2008 because I felt the Royals were about to turn the corner but five seasons later they're no closer to competing than they were when I clicked publish for the first time. Despite that, I kept writing, because it turned out to be something I really enjoyed. For the most part I count what I've done here as a success - I've met some really cool people, made a couple radio appearances and wrote a Sunday column for a newspaper. Those are things I never imagined happening when I started all this on a whim. Thank you to everyone that read something here, I really did appreciate your support.
With the sappy stuff out of the way here's a quick rundown of what I've been up to lately:
- On October 5th I wrote why Kevin Seitzer was The Fall Guy and why he shouldn't have fell alone.
- On October 10th I offered up The Top Age 26 Seasons In Royals History (Freddie Patek alert).
- On October 13th I had a few thoughts about the playoff production of Carlos Beltran and Raul Ibanez in a post unimaginatively titled Carlos And Raul.
- On October 16th I took a look back at the Royals' Historically Mediocre 2012 rotation.
- On October 23rd I searched play index and found Seven Eric Hosmer Comps Who Rebounded At Age 23 (list includes four Hall of Famers).
- On November 7th I wrote about Jeff Francoeur and Wil Myers in Keeping A Good Man Down.
- On November 15th I compared starting pitching performances the last six years to every six year period in team history in Year Six Series: The Rotation.
- On November 24th I claimed rotation questions are the same and Only The Names Have Changed.
- On November 28th it was the offense's turn in in Year Six Series: The Hitters.
