(I blew the rest of the NL West and hit my Padres squarely on the nose)
Why I left
Earlier in that year, my new employers had asked me to defer from writing and commenting publicly about baseball and after ranting about Byrnes, I hung up my quill.
For the 6th consecutive year, I’m spending my Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year covering the Winter Leagues and Serie Caribe. The constant travel, 204 days away living from a suitcase in the past 365, has started to take a toll on my body and my psyche.
So I’ve decided to retire from actively working in the game this coming spring and turn my attention to my family and to once again annoying Padres fans everywhere with the facts and the truth.
When I’ll Be Back Writing Again Consistently
I am under contract through March 2016, so I will likely not starting writing much about baseball other than an occasional rant about the Padres until then.
You may see a small amount of commentary about Serie Caribe and Padres Spring Training if I have some time and can get it vetted by my current employer. Mustn’t give up secrets you know.
I’m really looking forward to talking baseball through this blog and myTwitter account.
