The beginning of the baseball season is the leanest time for me as a baseball writer. You'd expect the opposite, I guess. But as someone who's more of an analyst than a scout, I'm much better at talking about what has happened rather than what's going to happen. Plus, I try to resist the temptation to draw sweeping conclusions from a week and half of baseball games, or less than ten percent of an actual season.
So let me take the opportunity to unify all of my various writing efforts in this one place. Baseball will take up most of my time. But I'd like to fill the gaps with a number of other projects, efforts and things that I just wanna talk about. I figured there's no sense in creating 8 separate blogs for my various interests; I'll just change my baseball blog to "baseball plus." To make things easier for my readership (both of you), any non-baseball blog will be clearly labeled NBR: Non-Baseball wRiting.
I'm working on my first effort, which should be up in a few days.
Happy Spring. The Jason Heyward era has begun.
