So That is, uh, That.

Please don't go baseball, I miss you already.

I want to go on the record thanking, of course, the Toronto Blue Jays for an incredibly entertaining and never-dull-for-a-moment season of futility excellent baseball. Thanks to Jose Bautista for proving me wrong in the worst way.

Most of all, I want to thank everyone who reads and comments here at Ghostrunner on First. It means a lot and I appreciate and live for each and every interaction.

If you're new around here, you should know we certainly don't fold this tent up and wait for spring. I'll spend most of the winter throwing all manner of crap against the wall in hopes of having just a little stick.

In addition to what you see here, I'm also now contributing to the The Score's Getting Blanked baseball blog. My first post went up Friday, thanks to the Giants for making me sweat it out until Sunday but saving me from a public shaming.

Walkoff Walk is still going strong and I'll pop up over there whenever I have the chance.

Other than that, keep your eyes peeled here for a pretty exciting announcement in the next few weeks. Good times ahoy!

  1. You're joining the SweetSpot network, aren't you? (If not, you'd be perfect for it!)

  2. I've been lurking on your site all season, Drew, so thanks for the posts.

    I'm not nearly as knowledgeable about the game as you are, so that's why I never join in the conversations ... you never know where Stoeten might pop up to call you a fucking retard. ha ha

  3. Drew, it's been another season of solid posts from you (as always). I look forward to all those upcoming posts on R-Zep!

  4. thanks for a great season. i have never enjoyed being wrong about a player more than with Bautista this season. it almost makes up for all the irritation suffered at the hands of The Manager.

  5. No Drew, thank YOU. Looking forward to the off-season blogging, which I think is your best.

  6. There is no off-season. Ghostrunner on First best exemplifies that. Cheers, Drew, on a great season.

  7. As always, thanks for the great season.

    Thanks for the usual good stuff this season. I'm a long-time reader, recent commenter. I always appreciate the angles you pursue. It makes up for some of the less inspired writing that we all wade through.
