Yup. This is my 3,000th post on The Unofficial Pittsburgh Pirates Message Board.

I've had a good time, fellas (and gals, if there are some women on the board). I've learned a lot by reading this board over the last 4 years. Indeed, I credit this board for increasing both my substantive knowledge of baseball and my fandom of the Pirates. I've had disagreements with many of you over my time here, but I firmly believe that everyone who posts here wants to see the same thing -- a sixth World Series championship banner raised at PNC Park.

Here's hoping we all get to see that sometime in the near future. More importantly, here's hoping my son Jack gets to enjoy a successful and sustained winning run by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

There was a disagreement, he threatened to leave, and he left.

I think that the type of people who threaten to leave message boards should leave message boards.

BD left after a (baseball) argument he and I had last week that had gotten tedious. Afterward, we had a very cordial/understanding PM conversation and he revealed to me that his leaving wasn't so much about our argument but a decision for him to cut back on his baseball obsession (which also includes playing in several fantasy leagues, etc.) to focus on his personal life. He said after some time off he might return in a smaller capacity some day. BD said I could share that with the board and I said I would when it was brought up.

I was going to greatly reduce the time I spent on fantasy baseball, but my wife asked me not to.

Hmmm ...

Thanks for the update Shark. I really did value BD's posts so I hope he comes back.

I can totally relate to the baseball obsession thing. I don't play fantasy but I think about the Pirates all the time. I have no idea why it fascinates me so much, but it does. Certainly I could be making better use of all that time and mental energy. Which reminds me I better get back to work!
