Let me explain why I was going to stop [writing on the internet]: I feel like, at times, sabermetrics can be draining on the love I feel for baseball. Sabermetrics is rooted in cynicism, I think, so there is so often the feeling of "this guy’s overrated" and "this broadcaster sucks" or "Omar Minaya should be murdered" or whatever. And so I was going to stop, maybe for a year, maybe forever, to reinitiate myself into just loving baseball.Via the very cool. new series why [we] write. This was taking from the Bryan Smith interview and I have to say, I've felt what he describes even without being a writer.
