Happy New Year 2015!
Another year has come and gone here at the Indians Baseball Insider. The end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 ends the second year to the new Indians Baseball Insider name and the start of the third year under that name.....and now the ninth year that the site has been in existence.
We have come a long way in eight years! As many know we are now joining the Scout.com network as part of their brand new MLB network that is being established. You will begin to see that change start to take place as a "soft" launch has already started over at the new home at Scout (indians.scout.com). Our URL here at IndiansBaseballInsider.com will be redirected to the Scout URL on Tuesday January 6th, so for now the site will continue to look the same....but come Tuesday we will be integrated with Scout with a "hard" launch.
We continue to pump out tons of material. We have gone from posting 1,028 articles in 2011 to over 2300 articles in each of the last two years! That's an average of six to seven articles a day. Wow! Not to mention another year of over 60 million hits!
Thank you to all the readers for their support, and a big thanks to all of the IBI staff who have all chipped in in their own way. With the new changes coming in 2015, the site and content will only continue to get better. We no doubt will continue to pump out Indians content that is fair and objective and unmatched by any other site.
As for the Indians, hopefully the Indians can take a step forward and make 2015 a special season. It was a big year in 1995 and was on its way to a special one in 2005 before a final week collapse. Maybe 2015 is the year!
Happy New Year everyone!
