We’ll meet again…
After four years, Bullpen Banter will no longer extensively cover minor league baseball.
Our site, our second home, developed into much more than four prospect fanatics’ roundtable discussions. As the masthead grew, our content evolved into a small amateur scouting department and our staff into a tight knit community. At a time, a larger vision began to come into focus. Media credentials, videos, scouting contacts…
Then Bullpen Banter stalled. The cause was simple — individual success. Professional teams, bigger blogs and our non-baseball lives depleted our roster and then our content.
Emotions are mixed. We’re sad because managing Bullpen Banter was a big part of our lives. The site gave so much to so many. However, our excitement for the opportunities our staff and we are embarking on outweighs our sorrow. The void left by BB will not go unfilled.
Bullpen Banter will not go offline. Al, others and I will sporadically ramble about the theories or players that may not fit in at our new homes. Information about where our writers’ content will appear will be made available as it is released.
We thank you, again, for reading. We started Bullpen Banter because we loved prospects, but the site continued for four years because readers loved our perspective. The readers, the tweeters, the commenters and especially our staff made Bullpen Bullpen a special for years.
Thanks for all the fish,
JD & Al
