Great writer. Better person. Sunday mornings surfing the net will not be the same.

Amen.

His stuff is great and you're right about Paul being better than his stuff.

Thank you, PC.

Bummer, man. This is a bummer.

Thanks for doing it as long as you did PC. I've marveled over that for a few years now.

Jeez, I was thinking about how sad I am for this to end. I can't imagine how Terry Pluto feels. How is he going to write about the Indians now?

Does anyone know if maybe one of the Dolans has contacted the DiaBride's hubby about replacing Shapiro or Antonetti? Wouldn't that be sweet?

Thanks for all those words you beat out of your laptop over the years, Paul! Best of luck...

Paulie is the Indians writer I respect the most. By far. He's definitely going to be missed around these parts.

Keep in touch around here, Paul.

Every Sunday morning for the past 5-6 six years, my first act upon rolling out of bed is to fire up the computer or iPhone and read the latest column. The only good thing out of this is that my kids won't have to lie in bed for another 20 minutes crying to get up.

Great writer. For the insight, analysis, and sense of calm and reason through some rough times, I put him right up there with Hal.

"Ultimately though, sports – and specifically for me, baseball – is something to enjoy and to appreciate.  And while disappointment is burned into our DNA as Tribe fans, that sense of enjoying a game as simply a place to lose yourself for a short time is at the heart of my love for this game and for this team."

Well said :thumb up:

Thanks PC - I enjoyed your writing immensely. You will be misses.

Perhaps there can be a "guest column" in the future...? You're offseason stuff is/was always perspicacious as hell.
