Hey everyone. As you know I have a tendency to get a bit wordy and wander off on multiple tangents, I’m going to really attempt to keep this short and sweet. Over the last few months, I’ve debated in my head what direction this website was going to go. Some of you have been around since it all started back in December 2006, and some of you have only recently found the site. For the majority of my life, I’ve been an idea person. I have a lot of ideas, my brain works really quickly and in many cases, this prevents me from actually being able to focus on really important things. For 99.9% of all the ideas I’ve ever had, I get involved, I learn stuff, and then I get bored and move on. This site started in the exact same fashion. It started with a few posts, a few page views, and then 6 months later, it was actually a thing. And a year went by, then two, then 5. When I hatched up this idea back in November 2006, I figured I would start it, get bored with it, and then move on to something else. But this site has been the 0.01%.
However, I’ve reached the point where I can no longer keep updating and providing content for the site. In the last few months, putting together even a recap of box scores has become a chore. I used to get deeply involved in the discussions here but had to stop, because it simply became too frustrating and I did not have the time with my new job. Now I barely have the time and motivation to cut and paste 4 box scores a night. Though my mind tends to wander and I jump around a lot, I always commit myself 110% to everything I do, and when I realize I can no longer give 110% I move on. I’d rather go all out and try to do the best I can and move on to something else than stick around and half-ass a project, its just not my nature. The support I have received here over the last 5+ years has been amazing. From the emails to the dedicated users who regularly post in the comments to all of the people who have volunteered their time and energy to the site. I believe what I’ve compiled here makes this site unique, and it will be something I’m forever proud of. The site won’t be removed or deleted or anything else. I’ve received a few offers in the last 6 months to sell the site in its entirely and have it integrated in to some network of sites. That was never my intention, and it’s not my intention now.
I have reached out to someone about possibly keeping the site going. When I have a clear idea as to what will happen going forward, I will provide you with an update. Its been a pretty incredible ride, and I’m extremely thankful for all of the people who’ve come here and provided positive value, as I really believe this turned in to a great little community. If this site does not keep going, I know that a few of you will take the lead and form a new site/place to continue the discussion. I wish I could email all of you individually and thank you for your support, just know that I truly do appreciate everything and maybe our paths will cross again at some point down the road.
