Sabbatical Alert

Over the course of the last couple of weeks - perhaps due to the boredom of the playoffs - there has been a steady decline in the passion and interest to maintain the quality of what we feel is required to put into Astros County. We're not at the point that we're ready to shut it down, but it's clear that we need some time to clear our heads and find said passion. So we're taking a sabbatical of an undetermined length. It's our collective opinion that you, dear Citizens, know when we're mailing it in, and we have been guilty of that as of late. So rather than do that, we'll take a break. We're not sure when break time will be over, but if something big happens, we'll be back. Bear with us while we remember why we started doing this in the first place.

Love,
Astros County

I'm an Astros fan up in New York City and I read your blog every day, along with the Crawford Boxes and the mainstream media sports writers.

Enjoy the break and keep up the good work! See you around the Hot Stove!

Please take a break and relax, but don't shut it down, this blog is great! I read this before I read any other sports site.

I echo what the others have said. This was the first Astros blog I started reading and have enjoyed it a lot. Thanks for the hard work and I hope to see y'all back next season.

I am also a daily visitor. Do take some time off until the Hot Stove season starts to get hot...not that I expect anything big out of our team in that department. I will be checking back soon

*Feeling like that group of people left standing on the highway after Forrest Gump stops running and says "I'm pretty tired. I think I'll go home now."*

You all do a fantastic job, keep up the great work. Your blog (and Crawfish Boxes, but mainly yours) are the only places I go to find up-to-date and relevant information on the Astros. Everything from the Minor League report, to rumors, this site is excellent. Big congrats to you folks!

I found that three years of constant day-by-day blogging burnt me out, and hence skipped second half of 2009 season and came back much fresher in 2010.

Enjoy your time off.

You deserve the break. Just know...there's a cozy seat waiting for you over at The Hall if ever you want to write about nothing.
