(Best believe we're going to keep the Horse talk to a minimum this offseason)
The players may be well on their way to cleaning out their lockers, making their golf plans, and setting the rest of their offseason schedules. But at AB4AR, we aren't doing any of that, because...
/obvious sports cliche coming
THERE IS NO OFFSEASON AT AB4AR, MOTHERFUCKERS!!!! WE'RE COVERING YANKEE BASEBALL 25 HOURS A DAY, 8 DAYS A WEEK UP IN THIS PIECE!!!!
Now that we got that out of the way, let me expound upon that idea a bit. Yes, it's true, there won't be any big offseason breaks for me during the MLB offseason, at least none that I'm planning. The baseball may be done but there's plenty left to talk and write about over the next 5 months, and I don't plan on missing any of it (unless I end up going to another wedding and miss something really exciting).
We'll start out taking a week or 2 to look back on the 2012 season and all its participants, the good, the bad, and the ugly, before handing out some Major League and Minor League end-of-year awards and putting 2012 to bed. Then we'll really move the focus towards the offseason; free agent profiles, potential trade targets, payroll talk, building a lineup for 2013, etc.. There will be a few non-serious Offseason Space Filler posts sprinkled in for days when there really isn't anything of value to talk about, and there will be AB4AR Prospect Week and the unveiling of the 2012-2013 edition of the AB4AR Top 30 Prospects list sometime in late December-early January.
And believe me when I say that I'm going to cover the Alex Rodriguez saga only as much as I absolutely need to. There are some things that will be worth discussing, and if some serious trade possibilities come up those definitely fit the bill, but if you're looking for a place to drag A-Rod through the mud for the next 5 months I suggest you look elsewhere. There's plenty more to talk about than just how much A-Rod sucks and how the Yankees need to get rid of him, and I intend to make all of that stuff my primary focus this offseason.
