Well folks, I’ve been thinking about doing it for a while and I finally made the jump. This will be my last post on MLBlogs. I’ve enjoyed my time here, especially my interactions with (most of) the other bloggers and, most importantly, Mark Newman. But it is time to move on.
For a while I’ve complained about having to contour the blog to the censorship whims of MLB – and I’ve been more than critical of Bud Selig and MLB in my time here. My wanderlust coupled with my want of more freedom with my content and design made me look elsewhere for options, and Bud’s slimy moves with Direct TV pretty much solidified the idea for me.
So, as of tomorrow, I’ll be blogging still, but instead of being at MLBlogs, I’ll be directly at Red Sox Chick.com. I’m still playing with the formatting, but it’s pretty much the way I like it right now – although, given my attention span, there are sure to be ongoing changes. I hope the folks who visit here stop by there and check it out.
Take care folks and thanks for everything Mark!

ps — not sure what "censorship whims of MLB" you’re referring to,
though. We have emphasized the "Official Affiliate of
MLB.com/Unofficial Opinions" nature of MLBlogs for 2 years and it’s
been pretty much free rein from what I’ve seen (save for the Six Apart
profanity filter). I just don’t want anyone else to think this place is
censored by anyone.
Excellent point and my apologies for my phrasing above. The profanity filter is primarily what I was referring to. It isn’t ‘the’ reason for the jump though. It just seemed time.
Thanks, again, Mark, for everything!
