I will blog out the season at my current pace of a post-a-day and I will keep it up during the playoffs if the Phillies are in it.
I will post my usual Season in Review series in late October or early November.
I will throttle back to one or two posts a week in the off-season from November to March.
As I did when I blogged the 1950 Phillies, I will put together a series about a past Phillies team. I've narrowed the choices down to the following: the 1964 Phillies, the 1983 Phillies or the 1993 Phillies. Anyone have any preferences? I lean towards an exploration of the '64 team myself.
I shall return to blog once more in 2008, however next season will be my final year blogging the Phillies. If I blog next season I'll have covered five seasons of baseball: 2004-2008. That's enough. I'll be 31 and I'll want to dive into advancing my legal career and focus on building a family. I barely have the energy to do this now. I won't have it then.
I have decided to work on a book project that I intend to release in October of 2008, when the Phillies wrap up the 2008 campaign and I post my final thoughts on this blog. The book will be published through Lulu.com, and it is tenatively entitled The Wiz Kids: The Story of the 1950s Philadelphia Phillies. It will focus on the rise and fall of the Wiz Kids, starting with the General Managership of Herb Pennock in 1943 and ending with the team's last-place collapse in 1958. If all goes well and if the book is well-received, then I might move into the realm of book-writing and make that my hobby. I've always wanted to write a book and I figured this was my chance, and that you all would be my audience.
Those are my plans and I figured that I might let everyone who reads this blog know. More on Monday about the Phillies disasterous recent play.
