The time has come to go on vacation. Between now and the start of the Winter Meetings, I’m taking a break from covering the Yankees.
The way it usually works for baseball writers is that we take most of our time off in the winter. I have two weeks now, more time in late December and then a good chunk of January. This is when you make up for working seven straights weeks of spring training and every day in October.
I’m not going to try and tell you it’s hard work. It’s a fun job and I love it. But being able to get away from the PowerBook, cell phone and daily writing responsibilities will be a good thing.
However, I do plan to check in here from time to time, so you’ll have a place to post. The Journal News will run Yankee stories by other folks, so check them out. I’ll be back on Dec. 2.
Thanks for reading the blog and commenting as often as you do.
