I just wanted to give all of you an update on what to expect from the site during the off season. At seasons end, I will be putting out a report card on each player in the organization. It will go position by position and will take us through September into early October and will hopefully kick start some good conversation. October will bring the beginning of Arizona Fall league coverage which will flow into late November and be covered by Brad, who has done a great job with box scores and thoughtful commentary throughout the year.
In November, along with AFL coverage, there will be a feature on the 40 man roster and the decisions facing the Phils in that regard. Rule 5 draft coverage will occur in early December after the 40 man is finalized. The week after the 40 man roster is announced, we will kick start the Reader Top 30 prospect poll, which should take us well into January.
Late January and February will bring the Phuture Phillies Top 30 as well as minor league roster projections.
Finally, in March, Spring Training coverage. Of course, we will continue to provide all the minor league information as it happens throughout the Winter. Several player interviews are planned as well.
Thank you all for your support this baseball season. From opening day through today we have had in excess of 1,250,000 site hits and it is through the continued show of interest in the site and the Phillies minor league system, comes the willingness to keep the site going.
