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.


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.

    That sounded like the kind of joke I would tell to make my kids groan. If you were trying to hide being a dad, you just gave yourself up!

    we will always have "the speech"

    that whole world series was all-time game 7.  even the thankfully-short rain delay helped make it great.  any time a rain delay adds drama rather than dissapointment, that's a feat.

    in the history of game 7 world series games, if that's not in everyone's top-3 i have no idea what they're looking for in a game.
