Taking a Break

I have not posted since April 24 when I predicted that Justin Upton would likely start hitting soon. More than a month later he's still not hitting much, but I don't really want to talk about Upton here. I have been writing here since 2005 and have over 1,000 posts, but have not added much the past several months due to additional family and job responsibilities. I don't really have time for much thoughtful analysis now and I am not one for writing my random thoughts or presenting shallow analysis just to keep the blog going.  So, I am taking a break from Tiger Tales.  I probably don't have many (any?) regular readers anymore, but just in case someone cares, I wanted to let you know what I am doing.  I expect I will get back to more consistent analysis and writing some time in life.  For now though, if you want to say hi, you can often find me at Twitter or at where I can talk Tigers without thinking too much!


  1. Unfortunate. I still keep an eye out. Good luck with life stuff!

    I have followed your blog for years Lee, and will miss your analysis of our Tigers. Hope all is well with family and the best to you.

  3. Lee,
    I have enjoyed your blog immensely and consider it one of the best. Your in depth analysis usually gave me something to think about. I know how much time you put into some of those posts...Thank-you!

  5. I know where to find you. Thanks, Lee!

  6. I have grown used to seeing my favorite bloggers come and go. There is a time in life for everything, and I am grateful for the enjoyable and thought-provoking posts you have given us over the years.

  7. I, too, have followed your posts over the years and have enjoyed the analysis and style of writing that I don't find anywhere else in Tigerdom. I wish you well and thank you for all the contributions.
