proposal for this section

Post by cardzilla »

it looks like this section is a little forgotten. did someone once say keep minors talk separate from majors?

i ask because the proposal is just merging the 2 sections together. that way minors talk would gain more traction.

We used to have Daily Farm Reports when the board first started... mostly from New Pagodi, then from me, and a few others along the way. Due to time constraints, we both eventually gave it up. It was never truly the most active part of the board, but it was more active than it used to be.

I would be onboard with merging the sections together, but it'd be good to make it clear in the title.

I've pretty much let myself slip away from minor league writing/research due to the death grip that suck has had over my life in 2016.

I agree that there's not much going on here, but because it's quiet, it's easy to find old threads as a reference point. I kind of like that. Years ago, these minor league threads used to get lost in the main forum. I don't think we have that much traffic now, so it wouldn't be as big of an issue.

The problem with a minors forum is it's hard to really say that much about guys you don't actually get to see them play games ever. I mean you can look up their box scores everyday but you can't really have any indepth conversations even then.

You do realize not everyone on here lives in St. Louis, right? I myself haven't seen the Cardinals live since 2013 when I saw them in the World Series at Fenway. I haven't been to Busch III since the summer of 2009.

I have been to roughly 20-30 minor league games since my last game involving the actual Cardinals.

So yes, some of us actually get to see these guys play live. Much more so than the parent club.
