I won't make this a long one. Due to recent developments, things that should come clear in the very near future, I am ending my involvement with "The Juice" blog. This is not a negative. I still believe Baseball Toaster is one of the best collections of minds around and certainly no reflection on the readers or writers of "The Juice" blog. I wish I could say more at this time, but as each second passes now, things will become clearer.
My posts had already dwindled due to time constraints and a general lack of anything worth saying. I'd always considered this a "corner bar" metaphorically, a place where anything might be discussed with a general center of baseball goodness. We've gone all over the map, subjectwise, and I'm proud of every word.
"The Juice" blog will continue, without me, though you may see me pop up in comments now and again. You'll still find me at Baseball Prospectus, Mind and Muscle, Total Texas Baseball, and soon, a couple new places, ones I think you'll like. I'd like to thank all the readers who have shared the experience with me.
I'm still not sure of blogging. I think the word is overused and misused. It's a new form of journalism, one that's continually evolving. Years from now, I doubt we'll even remember the word and the impact that it has on society will be assumed. Information will be ubiquitous, though I have no idea what form it will take.
Then again, I could be wrong.
I thank everyone here, especially my friend Scott Long and Toastmaster Ken Arneson. With a flourish of the virtual pen ...
