Just figured I’d drop a line that I’m filling in over at MLB Trade Rumors today. Come check it out.
We’re working on some behind-the-scenes upgrades that should make River Ave. Blues more responsive and should — fingers crossed — eliminate most, if not all, of our downtime. If you’re reading this is in an RSS reader and can’t access the main site for RAB, worry not. We’ll be back up shortly. If you’re reader this on the main site, then just ignore it. Obviously. Thanks for sticking with us.
We had about an hour-long outage there. Sorry about that. The problem should be fixed now.
In honest-to-goodness Yankee news, the Yankees, along with Joe Torre, are holding a press conference in 16 minutes. If Joe Torre isn’t there to announce a contract extension, I will be pretty damn surprised.
Update 3:46 p.m.: Dan Graziano reports that Torre will accept a one-year deal with a team option for 2009. He’ll have to take a pay cut for this one. The Reign of King George is officially over.
Update 4:16 p.m.: This information, as we now know, is wrong. Torre turned down the Yankees.
Sorry for the extended down time. We were too depressed about last night’s game to keep up the site. Just kidding. Hosting problems.
Continue bemoaning what is only a game one loss here. And remember: The Yanks are 5-0 in DS history after losing game 1 and just 2-5 when winning game 1. Hooray for meaningless stats.
We’re currently experiencing some server problems, and thus, River Ave. Blues is loading slower than it normally does. Please be patient as we address this issue, and we’ll hopefully be up and running at full speed shortly.
Just a minute ago, in the top of the 2nd during tonight’s Yankees-Orioles game, River Ave. Blues reached a huge milestone. Since we launched this site back on February 20, 2007, with a post previewing the college draft, we’ve had 1 million page views. The three of us never expected to find this level of popularity or participation, and we owe it all to you, the people who have read our 998 posts and have left over 7400 total comments on this site.
So as we look back on February 20, let’s first pause to make fun of Mike for saying the following in a comment: “RE: Brackman. I know all about him, but I’m not overly thrilling considering his limited track record (just 70 IP career at NC State). That said, I think there’s a better chance the Yanks will draft Jesus Christ than have Brackman fall all the way to 30.”
And let me also thank all of you who read every day. We’ve got some great plans for River Ave. Blues, and we’ll certainly be here to the next million page views and beyond. We hope you will be too.
For whatever reason, some of your comments are getting eaten up by the spam filter. If your comment doesn’t show up right away, relax, we’ll get it out of the filter ASAP. Hopefully things will be back to normal soon; sorry for the inconvenience.
Oh, and Red Sox fans, the loss column is on the right.
