Happy New Year

Posted by Andy on December 31, 2007

On this last day of 2007, I thought I'd share with you some of the stats about this blog. Since it was started in June of this year, there have been 471 posts and 2,091 comments. One of the ways that I know the blog is pretty successful is by watching the Recently Most Popular Pages page on the main site. Invariably, whenever a post is written about a particular player, that player shows up on the recent list. (For example, Mattingly ranks higher than usual now because of my recent post about him, although all the players currently on the HOF ballot have been popular recently.)

Anyway, I personally want to say thanks to Sean for the opportunity to write here, the other authors of this blog for providing great content, and of course to all the readers out there, without whom this blog would be pointless!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Near Year's Eve, and see you with more posts in 2008 (which is tomorrow, thankfully!)

    Happy New Year to you, too! A quick search of site (Play Index not needed) indicates that there is something about baseball and baseball-reference.com that makes us more Happy than Sad.

    That is, Happy Townsend, Smith, Iott, Foreman, Finneran, Felsch, and of course Chandler, plus eight others including HofF Happy Jack Chesbro.

    But only four Sad Sams.
