I need YOUR help

That’s right, YOU, the readers of this here blog. As we get close to the start of the season, guys will start getting assigned to various clubs, non-roster free agents will sign minor league deals, etc etc. I can’t always keep up with every transaction or move, and I can’t read every article. I’m going to create a page at the top, similar to the questions/topics page, where you, the faithful readers, can dump links to stories, post roster assignments/transactions you see, etc etc, and when I get a chance to make the necessary updates, it will make my life easier and make this site more complete. I’m still overwhelmed by the shear number of visitors every day, trust me, I’m trying to crank out the best product I can, but as with most every web site, the content is greatly improved with participation from the readers. Because, well, you are the ones I’m writing this for, not for me.

Also, a few other notes. In the coming days, you’ll notice an article or two appearing here not written by me. I’ve gotten many inquiries about our teams in the Venezuelan Summer League, and it’s an area I really don’t have much expertise in. I’ve enlisted the services of reader AndyB to help write up something on the VSL team,  and I’ve given him free reign to post anything related to that aspect of the Phillies system whenever he can. So, please give him feedback when his stuff appears here and contribute anything you can. Also, once the season starts, I’m going to attempt to get to some games, even though I live in Baltimore, and take plenty of pictures. If you make it out to a game and have a digital camera, I’d love to see your work, and if you’d be interested in sharing, I plan to set up a photo account online to share/host pictures, I’d be more than happy to include yours. If you have questions, just hit the email link on the right hand side of the page and get in contact with me.

I’ll try and toss up a few more grades this weekend, we’re almost near the end. If you notice any that I’ve missed so far (not including guys from the GCL team), please let me know.

  1. Your content has really exploded in a short amount of time, and with a very good game plan to keep growing- very impressive for a non-profit site done on your own. I intend to make it to a few more Blueclaws games this year then usual- I look forward to sharing.

  2. I have an interest in a catcher who played in the Dom or Venez summer lg who seems young and who put up very good offdensive numbers in 2006…but can’t recall his name. I DO recall that he was over .300 ba and a very high oba and ops. What info on him; and, will he be in our GCL team this ’07 season. Perhaps one of the guys who follow those lgs can give more info…?? Glad you’re including these aspects of our pharm system…

  3. Francisco Murillo- but he will be 20 this year- which isn’t outrageous, but not as good as you’d feel about a kid who was 18. He’s listed as a catcher, but played alot of first and third as well- so looks like they are fishing for a position for him. Chris Kline mentioned him among some other names that were ‘interesting’, so i’d say its a good chance he’ll be over. Besides, the GCL team has been historically lacking in offense- the more options the better.
