The 2011 baseball season is finally at an end. And while I know I’ll soon be feeling that emptiness that comes from evenings without baseball playing in the background of my life, for the moment I’m glad to see it go. Seeing such a terrible Cardinals team win the whole thing gives me that same why-bother-to-care-about-anything feeling that I got when Richard Hatch won the first Survivor.
Once that’s past, though, it’ll be time for the introspection and analysis of 2011 and the high hopes for 2012. Soon we’ll be talking hot stove stuff, the hope of a new season still literally months away from being dashed. This is the stuff that makes blogging in the off-season more interesting than blogging during the season, especially if you’re a Reds blog.
