I haven’t started working on the follow up post for Coral, I’ve got some things I want to do today on my first day off besides take a nap, but I’ll try and get it put together so I can post it late Friday morning, if not I’ll post it Monday morning. I’ll be working on the mailbag post through the weekend, get your questions and ideas together as we roll slowly into the offseason. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thursday, it’s going to be a long offseason so stock up on the food and drinks now.
