All Good Things Must Come To An End

The G-Stros season ended last night.  This team was fun to watch and they brought playoff baseball back to Greeneville. It was an enjoyable season. I wish these players the best of luck as their journey continues.

But I am not just posting about the season ending, I am also announcing it is time for this blog to end. Just over three years ago I started this blog with a mission to follow the current and former G-Stros. I started it because I was following those guys anyway and thought others might have some interest in what I had to say.  It has been a fun and interesting three years. 

There are multiple factors that make now the right time for me to end this and I won't bore you with the details.  It is the right decision for me and I am at peace with my decision. I am looking forward to returning to being just a fan.

Over the last three plus years, I made great friends in the Astros blogging community.  People like Jayne at WhatTheHeckBobby, Brooks, and Tim at the CrawfishBoxes, Mike at Farmstros, Bryan & James at AstrosCounty, Terri who post in several places and the whole gang in the bus ride forum at OWA.  There are many more and I plan on keeping those relationships going and might just pop up on one of their sites for a guest post someday.  Several have left that option open for me, and I appreciate it. They quality minor league coverage provided by these folks makes it very easy for me to step back and enjoy being just a fan.

I want to say thanks for taking the time to visit me little section of the internet. Your visits, feedback, re-tweets of my material and comments have been the fuel that has kept me going.  I still look forward to discussing baseball with folks on twitter and via email but I will no longer be doing any writing about it. 

Go G-Stros.
