What a time

As the sun sets on another gorgeous day here in Arizona, it’s time to get ready for the next round of Mariners coverage. I told some of you on Friday’s episode of Geoff Baker Live! that I will be flying home to Seattle on Sunday. I will not be here covering the team next week, or for a couple of days after that. It’s been 18 consecutive days down here and there are 23 more waiting when I return from a brief rest. After that, the team hits the road right away to start the season so now is as good a time as any for a lengthy recharge before the workload carries us into mid-April.
We’ve tried, in the first 2 1/2 weeks down here, to give you a glimpse of what the future of newspapers can look like. With all the doom and gloom in the business these days, there have been some positive developments to look forward to. Newspapers have technological capabilities like never before. Your overwhelming response to our daily webcasts has encouraged us to continue it when I return. There are other things, as well, that I look forward to introducing on the blog.
For now, intrepid Huskies reporter Bob Condotta will be filling in for part of next week when I’m away and Larry Sone arrives later on in the week. As you know, he’s started his very own, very popular, baseball blog.
So, bear with me a bit while I regroup and prepare for the second, more important part of spring training. Once that comes around, there is no stopping. And be sure to stay tuned to the Times for more baseball coverage throughout next week. It’s been fun so far and I’m looking forward to the rest.
