May the Hot Stove Keep Us Warm This Winter
I hate to sound like the typical Canadian, but I am not a fan of winter. I especially hate it because it means one thing: baseball is in hibernation.
Admittedly, I’m a one-sport man. You won’t find me watching hockey, basketball, football or soccer … I am solely faithful and hopelessly devoted to the sport of baseball.
That’s why I find the coming months especially troublesome because there really isn’t all that much to look forward to until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training camp on February 13th.
The million dollar question of “who will manage the Blue Jays” has already been answered, so all that’s left to decide between now and Opening Day are possible trades and free agent signings. There could be some buzz at the Winter Meetings in December as well, but that’s about it.
As you can expect, since baseball is going into hibernation, you can probably expect things to be quiet around here for the next few months. It won’t be completely inactive by any means, as there will still be a few posts up each week for people to ponder.
For the time being, Acid Flashback Fridays will be going into hibernation this winter as well. My reasoning behind that decision is it’s surprisingly difficult to unearth new dirt from the past each week, and I don’t want to exhaust all the possible ideas before we even get to Opening Day 2011.
However, I will be banking lots of great features for Acid Flashback Friday and rest assured they will return stronger than ever in the New Year.
Something to look forward to in the coming days: The Best Moustaches in Baseball will be making a return with its third installment. Part three will feature some of the most obscure yet outstanding ‘staches from the past, and I really hope you guys will enjoy it.
This is of course all in honour of Movember which benefits Prostate Cancer Canada, and I encourage you to check out my Movember page and please donate. Even if it’s just a dollar, every little bit helps. Thank you and keep checking back for ‘mo updates!
