Saying Goodbye to Rays Fan Ian

Now that the season is over, it is time to say goodbye

By Ian Blum

With the World Series behind us my run as Rays Fan Ian has come to a close. I always like to ride with teams each postseason so after my two favorite teams, the Sox and A’s were knocked out I went to the Rays.

The 2020 Tampa Rays were a faceless bunch that used the games new wave of thinking to break waves in the American League. It was for this reason that I found them so compelling.

There were a lot of highs:

And lows:

It was a wild ride and I enjoyed every second of it.

I want to thank everyone who followed along with me throughout the World Series. Being able to come on here and recap each game added a level of excitement to the Series I wouldn’t have had otherwise.

Of course a very special thanks to the guys at the Triple OT for having me on their podcast to talk about the World Series. It was my first experience in podcasting and it was an awesome time. If you’re into sports please do consider checking these out on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

As for the future of the blog we are headed into an offseason unlike any other for baseball. Teams have lost billions of dollars so it will be interesting to see how the market unfolds.

I have some plans for this blog in the mean time including player profiles, looking back at past games, and some other stories I’m excited to share.

In the immediate future I’ll be reacting to trades and free agency along with a new projected titled “Backyard Blogball”

For Backyard Blogball I’ll be playing through the season mode in Backyard Baseball and recapping the player draft, and each game here on the blog as work to win a championship.

It was a great run for Rays Fan Ian, truly the end of an era.
