Here is some clarification with regard to what articles will or will not require a paid subscription on the site. Scouting reports are for yearly subscribers only, but they are not the the only thing that will require a subscription on the site, and I have outlined everything below.
Articles which WILL require a subscription:
- All scouting reports listed on the site (these are not available to monthly subscribers).
- Minor league spring training and Instructional League game recaps
- “Minor Happenings” columns which will now be broken up into two articles a week
- Post-draft articles with information on signings, scout comments, and some front office comments
- Radar reports providing radar gun readings on several players in the minor league system
- Coach, manager and front office Q&As
- Stock reports on players
- Major League news and rumors acquired firsthand through a source
- And more!
Articles which WILL NOT require a subscription:
- Daily regular season and postseason minor league game recaps
- Daily “Around the Farm” articles
- Affiliate notebooks which will post daily every week for each minor league affiliate
- General articles on Major League Baseball, the Cleveland Indians, and their affiliates
- Player feature stories
- Analysis articles
- And lots more!
There will be a lot to read whether you subscribe or not, but those that have a subscription will have access to the scouting reports (annual subscribers only), spring and Instructs game recaps, as well as all the quotes and information provided by executives in the front office, scouts, coaches, and players in my weekly Minor Happenings column and post-draft columns. When all is said and done, over 200-some subscriber only articles should post over the course of the year covering everything from the draft, spring training, the regular season, Instructional League, and more.
In addition to all of that, there is an opportunity for subscribers to get free tickets to minor league games over the course of the season. Also, at any time subscribers can request professional quality photos (within reason) to use for autographs or use at your leisure.
You can register for a free account at any time, and at any time you can also add a premium subscription to your membership for $5.99 a month or $29.95 annually. For any questions, feedback, or other concerns, I can be contacted anytime. I look forward to hearing from you and appreciate the support. Thanks for reading!
