    Attention Community Leader,

    If you are getting this message, it's for one of a few reasons. Earlier this week I sent out a mass e-mail to all CL's. If you did not get this message, please post on my board and let me know. You either A)haven't checked your e-mail, B)just haven't replied or C)changed your e-mail from the last time I was updated, D) or something really odd happened to where you didn't get it (I've double and triple checked my names and e-mails, while possible, not sure how likely).

    If you are not planning on returning as a Community Leader this 2009 season, it's important that you let me know. Either way, returning or not, either reply to my e-mail or post on my board. Spring Training is inching ever so-close, and it's important we know who is in and who's not so we can get the ball rolling.

    If you do not reply to my e-mail or post a message on my board rather soon, I'm going to assume (provided there is a reason for an extended absence) that you no longer have the time and or desire to be a CL or you've left the site completely.

    Just a note to all community leaders. I'm trying to collect e-mails. I have most of them from when we did the awards, but If it's changed since then, or you are new to the team, make sure we're cool on the e-mail.

    With Free Agency starting tomorrow, we should probably be thinking offseason plans. I encourage everyone to put up some sort of preview for their own team. Highlight some needs, maybe look at who your team has on the market, or potential targets. If enough people get in on it, I'll post a collective article to highlight everyone's work.

    If your a new community leader, welcome aboard. If you've been around, make sure you go around, become a fan of some of the other CL's and support each other. We're a team here!


    Got your e-mail from Rory. So Peter all I have to say is good job and welcome to the team!

    Congratulations on becoming Pirates Community Leader!

    I'm very excited to have you on board, and your contributions will benefit our B/R MLB community. I know you and Andrew Kaufman will work well together and produce some sterling content. I'm excited.

    I imported my last article from my blog, Experiencing the Evolution. I usually don't do that, but I was having some technical difficulties with B/R last night and wanted to get the recap posted. It imports the whole blog post, pictures and all, which usually isn't "B/R style" but I had no other choice.

    It would be nice to be able to add more pics in the articles here though...

    I'm waiting for more Pirates stuff from you. I'd love to promote you to CL, but I need more Pirates articles to base my stance on. Hopefully this message finds you well.
