See you next season

For 22 teams, today was it. The end. And those fans go back to the drawing board hoping for a better 2011.

It is an important day of the baseball calendar. If opening day is the time where optimism is abound, the last day is where some sobering reality kicks in.

When you come out today, that’s it. The baseball card’s stats for the year are done.
Some players have played their last games with a team and will appear elsewhere next year.

Some veterans played their last game today and didn’t even know it.

Some September call up will not get another shot.

Some managers and coaches know that they’ll probably be looking for a new gig.

I’ll miss the box scores and scoreboard watching… and man I’ll miss seeing MY team play.

But enough reflection. All anyone remembers is the post season… and that is around the corner.
