Labor Day is here, and we’re slowly returning to the blogging fold. It’s been a busy summer and a lost couple of weeks – family obligations, work overload, and a Sox team that at first looked pointed towards next year but now appears to be pointed in no direction at all, these have all combined to make blogging one of the lesser obligations. But we hope this September and October (and the months beyond) will bring a few big, inspiring moments: David Ortiz returning to the lineup and making a run at 50+ homers. Jon Lester getting himself healthy, if not back into playing shape – baseball just isn’t that important. The Tigers defying our own predictions and all those cocky Yankees fans who think the playoff matchup will be a cakewalk because of last week. And lastly, a title run for the (perish the thought from an AL blogger!) Mets with Pedro back in the fold, working some October magic. Let’s just admit it: they’re a hell of a lot more likeable than their Bronx Brethren, and that’s not just because I’m a Sox fan.
So bring on the Autumn – we’re ready. (oh, and bring on the Pats, too!)
