Hello & Welcome (and for some - Welcome back!)
After a great season of blogging in 2005 and then again in 2006. Neil H and myself slacked off in 2007 and were positively mute in 2008. The reasons for this were I had a new job that curtailed my baseball watching abilities and my distinguished colleague was as well extremely busy with his job.
However due to my having left my previous employment my exclusive deal that I had for sports writing has disappeared and I am free to write on the blog again. We have discussed it several times over the past few weeks and have agreed to come back to the blogosphere and as part of that are relaunching with a new site, new name, new look and slightly altered agenda.
Our former blog YanksVSox will remain but will not be touched. To read our archives from over there then please go over and read the type of things you might expect from our 2009 version.
After a quick brainstorming session we came up with the name 'Down to the Final Strike' and that is where we are. You can expect a lot of Yankees and Sox news but we also plan to open it up a bit with plenty of fantasy baseball discussion and anything else that catches our eye from around the world of Baseball.
You can contact either of us via our e-mail addresses which are on the site and you can follow me on Twitter. I know that I am looking forward to the season (although the A-Roid injury has hurt) but having put the blog back in motion it has given me extra kick up the backside to keep going.
Any questions then please get in touch or leave a comment.
Let's play ball!
