Like a fastball down the middle to Garrett Jones…

…I’m gone!

I’m leaving tomorrow morning for vacation (well, after taking a test in my process to be certified as a teacher), and won’t be back for a week.

Due to the fact that I don’t want my wife to kill me with a starfish (and due to the fact that I’ll also be relaxing on a beach like Neal Huntington during the opening days of free agency), I won’t be posting much in the following week. That means:

-No updates to the Pittsburgh Pirates Prospect Tracker
-No updates to the Draft Pick Signing Tracker
-No nightly Prospect Watch articles

But there’s still Dave Kerwin gear! And I’ll also have Twitter updates. Plus, if there’s a trade, I’m going to go out on the deck, steal an internet connection from one of the nearby hotels, and write up some brief thoughts.

In the mean time, here are some blogs to follow:

North Side Notch
Raise the Jolly Roger
Steel City Heros
The “Mc” Effect
This is Getting Old
Thoughts From My Couch
Wilbur Miller’s Pirates Player Profiles (good source of draft pick knowledge)
Pirates 24-7

And finally I want to single one out, because it’s new to my links, and because it’s freaking hilarious:

Fake Neal Huntington

Also, follow him on Twitter at: @fakeneal

I should be around for the trade deadline, and I’ll have something after a trade is made, so check back then. Of course it’s calling for thunderstorms all week, so you might have to check back often. Hopefully not though.
