    I read the Globe forum, but don't participate or haven't in almost a decade.

    There are some really great personalities and some very knowledgeable folks on that forum.

    Moonslav, I remember your handle from that site. I hope you stick around.
    Everybody here is out of sight
    They don't bark, and they don't bite
    They keep things loose, they keep things light
    Everybody was dancin' in the moonlight

    Welcome to all migrants!!!

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    You're pretty close to 50,000 yourself, Ted.

    Welcome, moonslav, and everyone else. However, I am not from the same era as you, to put it mildly.

    Why is the BDC forum being dissolved? Has any explanation been given?

    For some reason it was a technical disaster-constantly screwing up-and the powers that be finally decided it wasn't worth their while to spend any more effort on it.

    I'm also new and can vouch for moonslav but not for myself, a Sox fan since 1949 (born at Fort Banks, now gone, in suburbs of Boston). 31 years in the Army, retired 23 years ago in Fairfax County, VA, only Sox fan among 6 siblings. Have never actually tried to produce a Broadway musical, but am a Mel Brooks fan. I think I am civil even when disagreeing.

    Thanks for your service!!! I hope you're civil when disobeying as well, if you catch my drift.

    Exciting! I've never posted anywhere other than here, and even then, not all that often. I always thought the only thing this site was missing was bigger numbers, personally.

    The Globe site had a lot of great posters. Many came and went as site issues and personal attacks got out of hand from time to time. At this point, there's a solid 10-15 consistent contributors there. If all of them come here, I think you guys will be thankful the Globe site went extinct.
