Plans for the blog as we get closer to opening day

I don’t have time to write a new profile today, not much in the news department, but I wanted to just briefly share some plans and ideas for the site as we get closer to meaningful minor league games. If you’re a repeat visitor, thanks for constantly checking in and seeing what I have to offer, and I hope you continue to do so once the season starts. I’d also appreciate you passing the site along to those you feel might enjoy the content, the readers are the reason people even have blogs. If this is your first time finding the blog, thanks for checking it out, and hopefully you come back. Now, onto the details…

If you look on the left side of the main page, you know about all of the tags, some for various features, and then a player specific tab for most prospects. The main tags you’ll want to keep an eye on once the season starts will be the Game Writeups, Transactions, Rosters, and a new section which will be added in a few days, the “Affiliate Reports” section. I’ve enlisted the help of a few people to help on covering the affiliates in detail, and once a week, we’ll be writing more in depth reports on the happenings at each level. Think of this as your one stop shop for the rundown on each level of the Phillies system. Tentatively, Lakewood will be Tuesdays, Clearwater on Wednesdays, Reading on Thursdays and Ottawa on Fridays. Once the short season leagues start, there will probably be one report for both leagues on Mondays.

In addition, every Monday I’ll be writing a who’s hot/who’s not feature covering the 5 or so best performers of the week, and the 5 worst. I’ll also be creating an online photo album, in which people can share their digital photos from minor league games throughout the season. I’m also open to any other suggestions anyone may have, so if you have an idea for the site, or something you’d like to see, or an area you’d like to help with, please either leave me a comment or drop me an e-mail. I’m extremely happy with the traffic and response I’ve gotten so far, and I can only hope it continues as the season kicks off. Thanks again for checking in.
