But those days are over, at least until Jan. 2. Once 5 p.m. rolls around today, baseball will close up shop until Jan. 2.
It’s not official, of course. But the MLB offices on Park Ave. will close and most teams (even the Yankees) give their people time off for the holidays. GMs will keep in touch via Blackberry but there won’t be many – if any – moves. Johan Santana will probably start 2008 as a Twin.
I’m on vacation myself and most of the beat writers will be doing the same for a while. The blog will roll on, but don’t expect multiple posts a day. There won’t be much news to report or comment on.
So get home safe and enjoy the holidays. Baseball will be there when you get back.
