My email box often has something drop in like this:
"I used to read your blog, but then you went off on (music/tv/film/girls/etc) and I don't care. Get back to talking baseball!"
(One line paragraphs. Starting to look like Plaschke.)
Here's why no: If you want baseball, there's several other sites here on the Toaster that do great baseball-specific content. If you want baseball from ME, may I suggest checking out Baseball Prospectus? I'm doing constantly updated trade rumors in "Will's Mill", have the only daily injury column on the web with "Under The Knife", do the top-rated weekly radio/podcast "Baseball Prospectus Radio", and I fill in from time to time on "Prospectus Notebook".
I might talk about baseball here. Scott might. Heck, even our new intern has the chops to do so from time to time. But don't expect it. Expect the unexpected. This blog is about a bunch of people that love baseball, but also have other interests. All of us - writers, readers, colleagues - hold a lot of things in common. Baseball is clearly the central connection, the true passion that drives us all, but any passion can turn into an unhealthy obsession. (And by unhealthy, I'm not talking about the RAGING carpal tunnel I'm dealing with now.)
You might like this place. You might dig us talking about music or girls or ranting about internet connectivity. You might pick out your next gadget, you might learn about the White Sox, or you might just waste a couple minutes. That's what you get here. Plus the occasional baseball.
