Before turning the page on a frustrating yet all-too-familiar end to the Twins' season, I want to say thank you to everyone who helped make my ninth season as a blogger such an enjoyable one. I started this blog in 2002 and enjoy doing it as much now as I did then. I'd understand if you were sick of me by now, which is why I'm so grateful that AG.com traffic was at an all-time high this season despite my posting frequency dropping from 4-5 per week to 3-4 per week.
Whether you've been reading since 2002 or this is your first day here, thanks for stopping by. And thanks to all the media members and my fellow bloggers who helped send new readers to AG.com. After a little break to decompress I'll be diving head-first into offseason coverage that includes analysis of free agents and trade possibilities, my annual ranking of Twins prospects, and (hopefully) the continuation of my long-delayed series on the best players in team history.
In other words, if you liked reading this blog for the past seven months you'll probably also like reading it for the next five months. If nothing else, hopefully it can help pass the time and fill the Twins void between Danny Valencia making the final out Saturday night and pitchers and catchers reporting to Fort Myers in the spring. And maybe the links to weird news stories and pictures of Mila Kunis every Friday will help somehow too. Anyway, thanks for a good season.
