Since April, this blog has been a very interesting experience for me. At first, I had no idea what to expect, whether people would read it or leave comments, yet here we are less than nine months later, and Mark it Down has received more than 164,000 comments.
But all good things must come to an end, and unfortunately, Mark it Down will be closing up shop at the end of this month.
While that may come as bad news to many of you, there is good news as well. I am leaving MLB.com, having accepted a job at the Daily News to be the newspaper’s Yankees beat writer.
I have enjoyed my time at MLB.com more than you can possibly imagine. I have made friends here who will be a part of my life for years to come. Thankfully, since I’ll still be covering the Yankees, I’ll be able to see them just as much at the ballpark.
As for you good folks out in Cyberland, the Daily News’ web site will feature a new Yankees blog written by me, so all you have to do to is follow me there. My new blog will debut in mid-January, so keep an eye out for it.
Of course, there are still tons of terrific blogs here at MLBlogs.com for you to visit, including Ian Browne’s Brownie Points, Jason’s Boogie Down Bronx blog, Jeff’s BoSox Banter blog and many others.
I hope you all have enjoyed this place as much as I have. For the regulars, you’ve made Mark it Down the baseball community that it has become, and I hope you follow me over to the Daily News blog next month.
Happy holidays to everybody!
