Website

Not certain of the future of this site. I'm still willing to host and maintain it. I made changes to the code so that the tables are more mobile friendly. I'm able to migrate the site to the latest version of Drupal and that will allow easier editing and content creation. I would like to do the upgrade, but I need feedback on the domain status and desired enhancements.

Hope I hear from someone soon.

Comments

Thank you for hosting and maintaining the site.  I don't post often but have been visiting since mid 2000s.  Really appreciate the information and community of The Cub Reporter.  I understand it can be a lot of work to maintain a site but would really hate to see it end. 

Absolutely want to see if stay if possible. 

I've been reading, commenting and asking questions here for over a decade now. Cubdom wouldn't be whole without TCR.

Hope it stays in any form possible. 

Whatever is most manageable, cheapest, time efficient manner you.

Like the others, I don't post often, and it's not the only Cubs baseball site I read.  However, it is the first site I read each day and if I only read one, this is it.  I hope you can hang in there.  

Cubs baseball will be a little less fun without TCR.

Please keep it going if at all possible. No other Cubs website compares. I've spent 15 years with AZ Phil, Crunch, Cubster. Don't want to see that end.

no matter the future, i've learned a whole lot being here and i'm still learning.  phil's post earlier with the end-season instructs stats is a great example of this.  lots of love for the team, the farm system, and the game here.

also, it looks like dusty's crew is 3 outs away from going to the WS with 5 runs to cushion.

Thank you for this site. It's the first one I turn to every single day. There may be other sites with more daily content, but there's only one TCR. Again, a big thank you to everyone actively contributing here!

Thank you forTCR, and it is the first site I check daily. Please keep it going.

Chiming in that TCR is still a major part of my daily Cub routine and has always been my browser homepage. The site contains much love for AZ Phil and his subtle sense of humor as the war correspondent for the Arizona Scoring Service. 

"Just because it isn't official doesn't mean it didn't happen"

Like the other posters, I don't post often, but have enjoyed Arizona Phil and crunch (who was right about Jason Heyward :) ). I am grateful for all the work that has gone into maintaining the site, and whatever you want to do to make it work is okay with me!

I will be happy to continue to do gameday posts for another season and would like to keep the site active. Thanks for your labor!

Sorry for all the delayed and abbreviated posts at season's end, by the way.

I'd like to add, without meaning to take a superior attitude, that ALL the content and commentators on TCR are a step above every other Cubs Blog I've seen. I'm better informed, better briefed about not only what's happening but what's likely to happen.

You all have made me a better Cubs fan. Whatever happens,  thank you. 

I echo this!

This site is great! It's pretty much the only Cubs site I visit daily, other than a Google search for Cubs news. 90% of the information I get on Cubs prospects is from here. Commenters are usually very respectful and it seems that most are well-informed or want to be. I'm hoping the site can continue. Thanks to everyone who contributes to its content! :)

I echo what everyone else has said. I am in no way an expert (or even novice) at the nuts & bolts of website construction; however, I have dabbled in some website maintenance for various entities. If there is a need for another set of hands, I would be willing to see if I could help ( or at least pull a Jonathan Herrera & cheer from the bench with an awesome helmet).

On top of what everyone else sez, TCR is my passport to the I-Cubs every year. Plz keep up the good work!

Cant picture not having AZ Phil as a infomation source.

I'm not a frequent poster but I am a daily reader who really appreciates this site

I don't comment often, usually just around trade and draft season with questions for Phil.  But this is probably the friendliest and most informative Cubs site and it would be a great loss if it were to go away.  If anything is needed -- from tech help to writing articles -- please let us know.

Frantically searching for some crumb of optimism to ease the despair associated with the 2003 series unpleasantness, (shudder), I thankfully somehow came across a post from this site while googling for news of the AFL Solar Sox statistics. I was hooked instantly.  I believe Rob G had just taken over the reigns at that point.

it is times like 2003, and, well, now (I guess) when the site becomes uber important to me as the information offered here allows me to at least be hopeful of what the future might bring.

Like many others, although my contributions are minimal, I am an everyday reader, and I enjoy the comments , explanations and information immensely.

Long time reader. Comment sometimes, but read a lot more than I comment, and have been reading since long before I created a profile to comment. This site is the best Cubs blog out there. If there's anything I can do to keep it going, give me a shout.

This is the first (and usually the only) Cubs site I visit. Please know that you and your work remains very important to me. Please keep it going, if at all possible.

    yanks and wsox fans are both hyped up over this signing by the cubs.

     

  • Arizona Phil 4 hours 12 min ago (view)

    CRUNCH: I would be very surprised if the Cubs sign anyone with a QO attached, so that rules out Story and Correa. I could see the Cubs maybe acquiring Didi Gregorius from the Phillies as a Phillie salary dump if the Phils sign Correa or Story. Then the Cubs could flip Gregorius at the trade deadline. Gregorius is signed thru 2022 at about $14M. Gregorius could end up back with the Yankees for a year under a similar scenario.

    CRUNCH: Willson Contreras to the Yankees just makes too much sense.

    yow...okay, maybe trade watch is very underway.

    yan gomes 2/13m cubs.

    contreras trade watch underway...maybe...dunno if you can actually count on gomes to catch 120+ games a year.  he may be high-end backup/rest with powerful bench option between him and contreras.

    j.baez to DET....6/140m

    cubs are obviously in the market for a SS, especially since hoerner has been put on notice he could be a ultility player in 2022.  it's looking a lot like trevor story time unless he gets priced out.

    not too stoked on his bat, but his glove is solid.

    Have to admit that as someone that now lives in Texas and enjoys baseball in general (not just Cubs), will likely head to DFW instead of Houston this summer to get my baseball fix.  New stadium, some exciting new players.  Guess that covers $100 of those millions they just spent.

    I figured the Rangers would make a Jason Werth type of signing this offseason.  Overpay to bring in a big time free agent that signals that the organization is transitioning from rebuilding to trying to be competive.  Didn't expect them to double down on it.

    corey seager signed a deal for 32.5m a year and that means carlos correa is having a really great day.

     

  • Dolorous Jon Lester 22 hours 27 min ago (view)

    Texas has a wildly expensive middle infield. They've also set the market really high for the remaining SS. And they did it single handedly.

     

  • crunch 23 hours 54 min ago (view)

    c.seager goes to TEX for 10/325.

    they've committed to spend 1/2 billion this week (marcus semien added, too).

    meanwhile, the cubs complained to the local paper about how their new multi-million dollar sports betting lounge isn't a casino and they sent out a "cyber monday" ad to offer the great deal of it costing nothing to get on the season tickets waiting list.

    it already is and will continue to be a hell of a 24 hours.  maybe the cubs will *shrug* i dunno...do something worth talking about.

    m.scherzer mets 3/130m (wow)

    that's more than the entire payroll for PIT last season per year and only a bit less than what BAL, CLE, and MIA paid out.

    both are equally useful to a baseball team.

    STOP THE PRESSES! They signed someone. Some random lefty RP named Locke St.John.

    Sounds like a Bond villain.
