And with that, 2008 comes to a close

With the Yankees 4-3 extra-innings loss tonight in Boston, the 2008 comes to a close. It's fitting, in a way, that this wasted season ended in a loss. That is now eight straight seasons that have ended in a loss, but who's counting?

The final record is 89-73, eight games behind the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East and six games behind the Boston Red Sox in the wild-card. I predicted the Yankees would go 90-72 and make the playoffs as wild-card winners. Oops. I also predicted Jason Giambi would have under 15 home runs. Oops again. At least I said Melky Cabrera would hit under .280 and Robinson Cano would have less than 50 walks.

One thing I'm sure of is that there is always baseball news in this city even in the dead of winter. That's good news for you and me. So keep checking in. This off-season could be the most eventful one in recent memory.

So right. There will be plenty of news to blog about during the off-season. With the Yankees, there always is, plus this off-season could be busier than most. I just hope they make the right decisions.
