    I’ve never even heard of at least half of these. I come here to get rumors on free agent signings and potential trades being discussed.

    “This Date In Transactions History”

      I do. I find it interesting.

      I hope you realize you don’t represent the majority of the readers here. I’ve been reading the site for more than three years now and I’ve found all the new posts interesting. The only post I don’t read is the Week in Review because I check up so often that it becomes redundant. All in all, the writers do an excellent job in keeping the site fresh and pumping out interesting material. Props to them.

    MLBTR chat….
    but a suggestion for the site, if you can do this, make a way so you can see comments that were replied to yours, instead of having to scroll down and find your comment to see if it was replied to

      Try email notifications for responses to your comments – the link in the email will take you directly to it.

      I think MLBTR’s hands may be tied for the most part – they use Disqus, which is basically a pre-packaged comment format.

      You can- go to your Disqus dashboard and all your posts as well as any replies will be listed.

    Where’s the “None of the Above” option? Monty Brewster (and all his millions) would be ashamed! 😉

    To echo an earlier post, I drop in solely for the rumors and news. The rest of that stuff is just filler, designed to keep the clicks (and ad revenues) coming, AFAIC.

    How about a better organization system on the site? Pages strictly for transactions, FA news, daily poll on the side of page (maybe up for couple days), page for blogs, etc. I think it would create a nice filter and better suit the people who strictly come to the site for certain things.

    • I think for the foreseeable future the options are going to be either transactions only or everything.

        Tim, just dropping a line, but I like the addition of the pictures on some of the posts. Looks good.

    I’m not unhappy about the site and it’s never a problem to simply scroll past the things that aren’t for me, AND I think the quality of the writing is great… but I really think it’s going in the wrong direction with all the original content. I liked it more when it was rumors and transactions, pretty much exclusively, with the occasional nod to rotoauthority.

    So I don’t think it’s bad content by any means, but I would guess there are a lot of people like me that never really came here for ‘content’ so much as a convenient aggregate of rumors and deals. I mean… look at the name of the site, and see how well it reconciles with some of the wordier content we see these days. “Lee proving doubters wrong” has nothing to do with an impending trade… leave that to an analysis/fluff site.

    I don’t read is the weekly wrap-up, but only because it’s recapping a bunch of stuff I’ve read already.

    I love Jack of all Trades and This Date in Transaction History! They are a great supplement to the rumor and discussion articles. They make baseball history more relevant and accessible to younger fans. Most of the baseball history we have been exposed to concerns only the superstars. It’s interesting to read about dead GMs and the moves they made and how they panned out.

    I’ve been reading this site for a very long time and I honestly like everything. Blogs Weighing In is an awesome feature, because it broadens the readers horizon. Thank you!
