It’s getting harder and harder to write about blowout losses day in and day out. So, I want to make sure we keep the content entertaining enough to stay with the team and the site through this tough time. What i’d like for you to do is sound off with some ideas for things you would like to see. Here are a few of my ideas. Let me know what you think and add some of your ideas.

1. Predict the future – Basically, what this feature would be is a way for us to dialogue about the future of various things related to the team. For example, I am working on one now that will be a discussion on the future of a couple of the Cubs prospects. It is something that they do on John Sickel’s site a lot.

2. Remember me? – This is a segment where we focus on Cubs of old that have since faded off to obscurity. It’s fun to find out what happened to fringe players once they left the Cubs. We can share our memories of them and see what they did in their short career.

3. Meet the prospect – These will be discussion threads revolving around various players in the farm system. One of the most exciting parts of being a fan is watching the players in the system slowly work their way up to the big leagues.

Those are the ideas i’ve been kicking around right now. What do you think?
