Normally this would be the post where I tell you that this next week is going to be chock full of postseason preview goodness in preparation for the ALDS starting on Friday. Unfortunately, tonight I'm flying to Las Vegas to attend a trade show for work and will be fully engrossed in that on Monday and Tuesday. I'll have my computer with me, and if I do have the time I'll check in and post on the events taking place in Yankeeland, but don't expect anything major.
When I get back on Wednesday afternoon, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of posts devoted to previewing and breaking down the ALDS through the remainder of the week. But I'll also be traveling out of town on Friday, and most likely won't be able to fully cover and comment on Games 1 and 2 next weekend. Again, I'll do what I can to stay on top of things, but expect next week to be light thanks to the pesky rest of my life.
It's a bummer to not be able to go all in during playoff season, but after this next week is up I'll be 100% back in the game. I'm talking game previews for every game, recaps of every game the next morning, in-game comments, and possibly a live blog or 2. So hang in there over the next week and I promise 7 days from now you'll get the AB4AR-style postseason coverage you're used to.
In the mean time, do me a favor and check out the AB4AR Facebook page and "Like" it if you haven't already. And don't be afraid to spread the good word about it to the rest of your Yankee fan friends. Don't tell the Mets or Sawx fans, though. They don't deserve to know.
