P2Daily: …And We’re Back!

I’ll be honest: There have been days this season where I’ve felt physically sick waking up at 4 AM, knowing I’ve got to once again focus on this Pirates team every single day.

Covering baseball is a torturous endeavor. Covering a rebuilding, losing organization during the months of August and September? Pure fucking hell.

I say this to note that it was nice to wake up for a few days this week and not have to worry about producing articles. Sure, I had to worry about producing an actual site to host those articles.

About a week ago, I finalized the design for the site, on paper. It took a few days for that design to fully play out onto the site you’re browsing now. The end result is a much more organized Pirates Prospects, with all of the information you need on the Pirates, this site, and the upcoming 2022-23 Guide.

We have a few articles posted today to keep you updated. Those are linked below. Our article drops will resume next week.

Oh yeah, and the site is now free*. The catch is that it’s user-supported, on more of an honors system. More information on the new site is available in First Pitch.

Pirates Weekly Discussion: Who Would Sign in Pittsburgh?

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

It’s way easier to follow a crappy baseball team if you allow yourself the luxury of ignoring the club altogether for long stretches. #mentalhealth

Great looking site and packed with plenty of info on the Bucs. One question, will the Pittsburgh Baseball Network site eventually go away or will it still be the “home” site of yours to drive to all others as originally planned?
Look forward to what 2023 has in store for us!

Site looks wonderful, all for Tim and more if we had it.

You may have mentioned this, but will we be notified when our old subscription expires and can it be rolled over into a new one under this new plan? If left up to me, I will forget. I’m even older than WTM, ya know.

Already missing the recent comments feature so i can see recent activity!

It should be back up on the side of each page

Yes, I hope we get the bell back or something comparable. It really helps sustain a discussion.

Or, equally or more important, the sidebar within a column that shows the most recent comments so that we know which article to jump into to join the discussion.

Glad for everyone to be back! Tim, don’t ever hesitate to take a week off entirely in the off-season. We all need breaks. No explanation needed.
