HOOOOORAY.
Just to sycophant a bit. (not sure if that is a verb).
But John, you seem to write with the preparedness and research of some one in journalism, mixed with a touch of wit and good prose... are/were you a writer/researcher by trade?
Either way, I think if you approach blogging with 50% of the quality and detail you add to other's blogs, you'll have a fan here.
Good luck.

Thanks to everyone for the encouragement. I'm going to try it. You may be disappointed; some guys are better off the bench! But I'll take some cuts, and hope the bat doesn't wind up in the stands.

@31, another possibility for the situation. The runner on first was thinking of stealing, but had just decided not to and was moving back to the base as the pitcher delivers.

Step up to the plate and accept the accolades of your peers.

(clap clap clap) chant... but it has only drawn, 'are you loosing it?' stares from my wife and son.
But say if John did acquiesce to our demands, I believe a fitting name for his blog would be; THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND; AUTIN.

Regarding Jose Bautista who JA mentioned in post 31, would it not be a huge shock to everyone if he had an MVP year? Most people thought his 2010 was at best part breakout part fluke. I certainly didn't expect him to even repeat his 2010 performance let alone exceed it.
