Vacation Time

My annual trip to the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) convention begins today, so all blogging will be on hold until Monday. At some point next week I'll have a full recap of all the baseball watching, research presentations, drinking, gambling, and rubbing elbows with the likes of Rob Neyer, Joe Garagiola, Gary Gillette, Pete Palmer, Sean Forman, Dave Studenmund, and about 700 other baseball nuts (including familiar names from The Hardball Times and Baseball Think Factory).

In the meantime, to get a feel for what I'll be doing in St. Louis over the next 96 hours, check out my trip reports from past SABR conventions in Seattle (2006), Toronto (2005), and Cincinnati (2004). While it might be wishful thinking given their play of late and the three-game series in Cleveland that's looming, my hope is that the Twins will still be above .500 when I return, if only because it'd be sad if they faced a double-digit deficit for a playoff spot before the trading deadline had even passed. See ya Monday.

Once you're done here, check out my latest "Daily Dose" column over at Rotoworld.
