So long 2008, 2009 has to be better

I briefly considered writing some sort of sappy farewell to 2008 post. But 2008 was not much of a year to look back on for the Yankees.

The team finished in third place after a disjointed, injury-filled season. We bid farewell to Yankee Stadium and Bobby Murcer, who millions regarded as a friend whether they knew him or not, passed away.

There’s a lot of hope on the horizon: a better roster, a new ballpark and hopefully the familiar sound of Bob Sheppard announcing the lineup on April 16.

Thanks to everybody who reads and supports this blog. It is my great privilege to work for an audience that has so much knowledge and passion for their team. It has been great getting to know so many of you.

Here’s wishing a happy, healthy and productive 2009 to you and your family. Thanks again.
