The End 

I've decided to quit blogging as of today. Over the last few weeks I've noticed that the quality of my work has been slipping: my posts have gotten tired and uninteresting, and I don't think I'm doing the work that I did when I first started blogging. Simply put, I'm too busy with fixing up my house and my job to keep churning out lousy posts.

I did think about waiting out the season, but I'm just too beat. I'm about to get very busy at my job, so I simply don't think I'll be doing any posting anyway for the rest of the month.

I also feel that I can't keep up with the rest of the Phillies blogging community. When I began I was the only guy really doing the sabremetrics stuff. These days you have a variety of voices giving you information from different perspectives, from Balls Sticks 'N Stuff to Shallow Center to Beerleaguer to Philling Station, there are a lot of good Phillies blogs out there giving you entertaining writing with real insight into the team.

I'll write again: I have some long-term projects I want to work on and I hope you'll be seeing them soon. Otherwise, good luck and goodbye.

Comments:
Mike:

I always knew what to expect when I clicked on your site in the morning, and that was a fearless, against-the-grain perspective drawing on honest, stat-based conclusions. You have a very distinct voice, and I will miss it.

Citizen’s Blog was the first blog I read daily, and for many of your regulars, this site was a personal crash course in Sabermetrics.

Do us a favor and keep your archives up and running. For those that haven’t read Mike’s work this offseason, rating the 2004 team, the offseason moves, and defense, this is a must-read resource you won’t find anywhere else.

You did brilliant, cutting-edge work here, Mike. Best of luck with your other pursuits. If you put as much passion into those endeavors, you won't be needing it.
 
Mike, I haven't blogged in weeks, and I know what you mean, even though my blog isn't as good as yours. Do us a favor, and don't take your blog down. IMHO, it is far more important to post quality rather than quantity. Do not feel you have to post every day. Instead, announce that you'll post whenever you feel like it, several times a day, or once a month. Your stuff is just too good. I cannot get this kind of analysis anywhere else, and I'd hate to think that you will never blog again. Cut back, we all sometimes do, but please don't stop all together!
 
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - well, can you set up a blog at least dedicated to matt geiger?
 
That stinks. Thanks for the blog and good luck in all your endeavors.
 
I'm gonna keep checking in every once in a while, hoping you will Michael Jordan yourself out of retirement every so often.

I'll also write that this was the first phils blog I checked regularly and appreciate the work you've done. Live long and prosper.
 
Damn, that sucks but I totally understand. I've always enjoyed reading your stuff. As Jason says, please leave the archives up and running. When you get those long-term projects together, be sure to let us know. Take care.
 
Mike, it's a shame you're going - I'd rather see you post occasionally than not at all. Yours was the first phillies blog I found when I was exceptionally exasperated last year and looking for a bulletin board/discussion group/something that had a different point of view from the mainstream sports media. Best of luck with the house and all the rest, and I hope we see you on the web again.
 
Yea, Mike, you will definitely be missed. For instance, we all know David Bell is a lousy hitter but good fielder, but you always knew why. Your well crafted and insightful posts were a credit to Phillies fans. Whenever the inspiration strikes again, feel free to drop a comment at Phillies Nation. And if you need to keep your archives hosted somewhere, just let me know, there's always room.
 
As I told you before Mike, it was a great run. I won't lie and say you were the first Phils blog I found (Shallow Center was) but you were a very close second.

Any good team has roles the players need to fill. On Team Phlogger, you were the sabermetric guy. Some of us dabbled in it, but we alwasy knew where to go for the hard stuff -- to A Citizen's Blog.

I agree with the rest, leave your posts up for us to refer to from time to time, and that way, if you ever get a wild hair, you can post something, whether it is next week, next month, or next year.

Thanks for everything Mike, you've added to my enjoyment of the Phillies and baseball immensely.
 
I will miss your blog Mike, I think yours was the best of them all, even you last few posts were great, I did not see a decline in quality.
Clark first time poster, long time reader
 
Mike - you will surely be missed. good luck
 
I totally agree with what everyone has said, I'll miss your blog. Say, now maybe you can update the eagles blog you run...

E-A-G-L-E-S
 
I'd wish you good luck, Mike, but you don't need it -- you've got skill. Use it wisely, and come back whenever you can. Don't underestimate your contribution to Phillies fans, and even to non-Phillies fans like me. It was appreciated.
 
Damn, I really would've like to see your take on this five game losing streak.
 
Long overdue, but Mike we will miss you at Philly Future. You had a great site here and we look forward to what you do down the road.

-Karl

Hi there, check out my site if you have a chance! Thanks!
 
After reading about The Indepundit, A Citizen’s Blog, and A Citizen of Mosul, I feel like my favorite blog was A Citizen’s Blog. I thought his blog was the best at displaying the true meaning of a citizenship in the United States. He seemed very opinionated and like he loved keeping his blog. Unfortunately, his last blog stated that he would no longer be writing in the blog because of it’s too time consuming. However, he also mentioned that he would be back with other projects. I hope they are just as enjoyable to read.
The main purpose of A Citizen’s Blog was to talk about sports, mainly the Phillies. Some of the major topics of discussion were the player’s stats, how well he felt games went, and the Phillies. Basically, he kept all a Phillies fan up to date on wins, loses, and anything else he thought was worth writing about. He also had a section on football, so his audience ranged from baseball fans to football fans. He had people who agreed with him and people who disagreed with his opinions read his blog. I think the main issue he had with the blog was that it took up so much of his time. He mentioned that his job was getting ready to take up more of his time and that was the biggest reason for not writing anymore.
Although I am not a huge sports fan, I still believe that this blog did the best job at displaying what citizen ship is in the United States. One huge reason is because baseball is the American sport. My father used to play, and then he passed the tradition on to my sisters and I. Now that my brother is getting older, he is trying to pass the tradition on to him too. A Citizen’s Blog does more than just talk about sports; it shows that we have the right to talk about sports. His blog is full of his own opinions, which shows the other major reason why it displays citizenship. Citizenship in the US means being able to talk about whatever we want. Whether it is sports, politics, or any other interest; we have the right to talk or write anything we want. We also have the right to disagree with other people’s interests. In conclusion, I feel that A Citizen’s Blog was the best at showing how a citizen of the United States has the freedom of speech and is entitled to his or her own opinion.
