TCR Friday Notes
- As one astute reader noticed - replacing the big bat of Alfonso Soriano with Mike Fontenot has all the makings of replacing Derrek Lee's bat in 2006 with Neifi Perez. After today's showing, it's hard to see if Eric Patterson is much better.. But with two lefties scheduled after today, I think it's time to (wait for it)....Free Matt Murton!
Some site notes after the jump...
- You've asked, we listened...you can now access The Cub Reporter with your mobile phone a whole lot easier. If you try to visit us on your cellphone it should now automatically detect that and redirect you to the stripped down version of the site.You can also just bookmark the following link: http://thecubreporter.mofuse.mobi (or preview how it'll look on your cellphone by visitng that link). Or just enter your cellphone number below and you'll get an SMS message, not that I'm actually sure what that is, and you should be able to bookmark the site once you receive that message.
You should be able to read the posts a whole lot easier and you can access the comments as well. It gets a little trickier after that and I wasn't able to log-in and post a comment, but I could read the site a lot easier. Now I'm not sure how it works with an I-phone, so if you own one and it automatically redirects you and you would prefer the normal site, let me know. I think a little link shows up that lets you view the normal site, but if that's not working for you, drop me a note.
- You may have noticed a "Cubs Headlines" menu item up top earlier in the week. I took it down for the time being because I can only get it to work in Firefox. If you are a Firefox user (and you should be), you can still visit the page and bookmark it. Once I get the kinks out for the other browsers, I'll put the link back up. The idea behind the page is a one-stop shop for all the latest Cubs news. Headlines from all the major news outlets via Sportspyder and Rotowold, standings and the latest box score from ESPN and headlines from the Cubs blogosphere.
- And finally, an update on our April Pledge Drive, we're up to 33 donations and $735. Thanks to everyone who has chipped in, it's much appreciated and we'll be sure to make you proud.
