Try as I may I could never explain

As some of you might have been able to figure out, I’ve been stricken with a terrible case of writer’s block.  Well, maybe I shouldn’t call it writer’s block, technically.  My entire Internet presences has been sporadic the last couple of weeks due to personal issues that I need not get into.  BUT I’m working at getting back into the groove of daily posting on the blog.

Writer’s block on a baseball blog during the most intense part of the season is poorly timed indeed.  At least I’m finally back in a place where I was able to watch all the games this weekend and see how much the pitching has stepped up.  Sure it was against the struggling Rays but, hell, the Yankees could only muster one win against the last place Orioles so I’ll take my moments of happiness where I can get them!

Today is the last off-day of the regular season for the Sox.  That feels so wrong to type.  I know we all say it every year but it seems like the season just began.  I received an email last night from a reader wanting to know if I know where Kyle Snyder will be next season!  Hell, I can’t even find out what he’s doing NOW let alone next year.  We’re in for a long off-season, I can sense it.  (Fingers are crossed that the off-season is made much shorter by the Red Sox playing well into October!)

I was debating which game I should live blog/chat this week.  I usually stick with Wednesdays because it’s easier for me given  my schedule…but Paul Byrd is pitching on Wednesday and I’m not sure I’m up for it.  The problem is, Daisuke Matsuzaka is  pitching on Tuesday – which isn’t really a problem because I’m fascinated to see how he’ll do but I’m not looking forward to a four-hour live blog.  :)  So I think I’ve decided to stick with Wednesday.  If you’re around and are so inclined, please join us for the live chat!

If you’re looking for baseball tonight – the Angels make a pit stop in the Bronx to play a make up game before heading up to Boston.  Joba’s on the mound for the Yanks so there could be bloodshed.  Or he just might only be allowed to pitch one inning.  Either way, it could be entertaining!
