Goodbyes and Well Wishes

As most of you already know by now, I've made the decision to step down from my position at Pinstripe Alley.

Life has a funny way of changing things; in the past year I've become the father of a beautiful baby girl, and also had to contend with some not-so-beautiful additional responsibilities at work. One of these changes has been wonderful, the other, not so much, and I'll let you guess which is which (hint: don't factor 3 AM feedings and leaky diapers into your guess).

We always have less free time than we'd prefer, but now I have a lot less of it than I used to, and it was going to be difficult for me to continue pulling my weight and carrying my fair share of the weekly schedule here at PA. I was offered a position to write one analysis post a week for the Yankees blog It's About The Money (stupid), and I've decided to accept it because it's a better fit for my schedule right now.

I want to thank the moderaters of PA these past two years, Ed, John, Travis, and Brandon, for giving me the opportunity to be a lead writer and share my thoughts with all of you. I also want to thank all of you individually for taking the time to read what I've written and comment on it. It's been a lively ongoing debate and I've learned a lot throughout the process. Lastly, I will say this - if you ever want to be a writer for this site one day, don't be shy! Write fanposts. Put your thoughts out there. (Study up your grammar, too). That's how I got started. You all have something worthwhile to add to the conversation, you just need to put it out there.

It's been a pleasure everyone. You'll still find me lurking around here from time to time, and I'd be honored if you continued to follow me at my new blog.
