After Thanksgiving Housekeeping

As you slowly recover from a case of massive over eating, let me inform you of some subtle changes I have made to the site in the last 48 hours. First, I updated the poll on the right. I left the last one up for a long time on purpose to really get a good feel for the five starters that people most wanted to see on this team next year. I’ll put the results into a post sometime this weekend.

The second thing that I did was update some of the team blog links. I went through all of them and got rid of some dead blogs that were not being updated on a regular basis anymore. What you see down there should be fresh and entertaining blogs for each team in the league. Give them a look. Also, if you find that I have missed a great blog that covers a certain team, please let me know so I can add them to the list. My goal is to always have a fresh set of links that can be resources for the readers when they want to know what the other teams are doing or thinking.

The third thing I did was update the Cubs Blog Army links on the right. With the CBA site not really doing much these days, I took it upon myself to make sure the blogs on the right are the ones in the army that are consistently bringing consistent content just in case you get bored with us. Make sure you check all of them out.

The fourth thing I did was update the meet the staff page to reflect our new welcomed addition of Mastrick aka: Mark Strickler to the staff. We’re excited about having him so make sure you check that page out and take a look at his bio.

The fifth thing I did was to update the recommended reading section of the site. I added a bunch of books to the list, with links to the page where you can purchase the book. These are all books I have read, with the exception of the Banks to Sandburg to Grace book that Tommy used all summer. All of them are excellent reads and I highly recommend them for you to pick up and read.

That’s about it for now. I’d like to close by saying a big THANK YOU to all the readers out. This site is just over two years old now and I am loving every minute of it. I look forward to being here for a long long time. Please, if there is any way we can improve the site, please let me know by shooting me an e-mail or catching me on AIM for a quick chat. I’m online all the time. Enjoy your leftovers, and don’t worry about the mess. Our sexy little maid will clean it up.
