A Short Goodbye...

I have both good news and sad news.  After talking with Josh and Corrye, I have made the decision to shut down BBIMH effective immediately.  As rewarding as it has been to write this blog for the past 4-1/2 months, I've decided to focus my attention on the new writing opportunities this space has afforded me.  As many of you know, I have been making regular contributions to the Red Sox blog Fire Brand of the American League for the past month or so.  I will continue to not only post articles every Wednesday and Friday over there, but also post my Weekend Round-Up of links every Sunday. 

Recently, I've been given another new writing opportunity.  I've been asked to join the writing staff at It's About the Money Stupid, the Yankee blog affiliate to the ESPN Sweet Spot network.  I will start writing for them, as well as continuing to write for Fire Brand, effective immediately with my first article being a reprint of my Fire Brand article "Will Jeter Rebound?"   While I'm not sure when that will post, I believe it will probably within the next couple of days.  This opportunity will allow me to express my thoughts on the Red Sox and Yankees in the appropriate spaces.  I am really looking forward to taking on both of these opportunities.  As far as I know, I'm in the unique position of being the only person to be a regular contributor at two Sweet Spot blogs, which is actually pretty cool.

In closing, I want to give a special thanks to Josh and Corrye for joining me in the endeavor.  While I will definitely miss writing with both you, I know that you will both influence my future writing just through our baseball discussions.  I also want to thank all of our regular readers, especially those who commented.  With each of you continuing to read every day, I felt compelled to continue you on with my writing.  Thank you for that. Lastly, thank you to everyone else who, while they may not have read this blog regularly, continued to support me in my decision to do so regardless. 

Despite what the title says, this isn't really a good bye.  I will still be around--just at a different location.  I hope each of you will follow me to both Fire Brand and IIATMS.  Both are top notch sites that put out a lot of great material.  Also, feel free to comment or email! 

Goodbye for now!
