Weekend BP: Happy New Year!

Wishing you all a marvelous 2022.

Happy New Year, San Francisco Giants fans!

I think I speak for most of us when I say that I’m hoping that 2022 is a better year than 2021 was. And I think I also speak for most of us when I say that the Giants season — from besting the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the NL West with a historic 107-win campaign, to the emergence of Logan Webb, to the resurgence of Brandon Crawford and Buster Posey — was one of the absolute brightest spots in an otherwise difficult year.

It might have been the only time I was happy the baseball season is so darned long.

Anyway, happy New Year to all of you. I hope you had a fun (and safe) New Year’s Eve celebration, and I wish you all nothing but good things in the coming year. As I said last week at Christmas, thank you all for making this the best sports forum on the internet, and for making my job so fun.

Who makes sense for a boring offseason? (Dec. 14, 2018 — Bryan Murphy)

How many days has it been since the owners locked out the players?

A month! A full month!


Happy New Year, all. I hope there’s baseball in it.
