A Few Words About This Site's Future

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Happy 2012 everyone. I just wanted to keep everyone updated on the future of this site, as it's been pretty dead around here over the past couple of months.

We are still operational, and now that the calendar has turned, one of my new year's resolutions is to get things back on track. I've been very sidetracked with my work over at The Outside Corner and my day job, and this site has suffered as a result. The lack of activity by the Braves this offseason hasn't helped matters. The Braves have signed a total of ZERO major league players this offseason, and have lost three free agents: Alex Gonzalez to Milwaukee, Nate McLouth to Pittsburgh, and George Sherrill to Seattle. I touched on Gonzalez briefly when it was announced that Tyler Pastornicky would be the starter in 2012, but the other two really weren't post worthy. I also didn't think that the nontendering of Peter Moylan (a fan favorite, despite being very ineffective since blowing his elbow out) and Brooks Conrad (a bench bat) were really worth posts, though I did have a nice video post up for Conrad that the Joomla fairies ate the HTML for.

I don't know what the staffing for the site is going to look like in the coming months. I'm not sure if I'm going to be bringing anyone on staff at all, or just rolling with the crew I have. I can tell you though, that game recaps will no longer be featured here. This is going to be all analysis, no filler crap that other sites do. That is my promise to you readers in 2012: to put out the absolute best Braves blog that I can, and not be just another one in the crowd. My goal is to make this *the* site for top notch Braves analysis, with all due respect to the current clubhouse leader at Capitol Avenue Club

Thank you for all your readership over the past year, and here's to a more productive 2012.

I am more than happy to contribute to your site if you need another commentator on all things Braves.
