A little housekeeping

One, you may have noticed, I have switched blog formats (and blog addresses). This should not have any effect on brilliant readers — you should still be getting the same rambling, typo-ridden text as ever — but it is part of an overall plan to take advantage of a bunch of cool features I could not use before (and, I think/hope this offers a better commenting system). We will see how it goes. For now, I believe that everything from the old blog redirects here and all the all posts and comments have been imported here.

Two, if you have a chance, here’s a fun survey for you to take. I take 10 semi-hot-button topics and ask you to give an opinion — or anyway choose an opinion that most closely resembles your own. I’ll be writing all about the responses.

Three, I do plan to post the final results of all surveys — the Hall of Fame survey, the quarterback survey, this one, etc. I have to figure out the best way to do that.

Four, I found out moments ago that my oldest daughter is getting braces. I will put a “Donate by Pay Pal” button on the right side

Five, man oh man do the New York Giants stink. Did you see that coming? I didn’t see that coming.

Six. In 2008, the Kansas City were thisclose to signing Torii Hunter. If the Angels had not swooped in with an enormous deal, Hunter was coming to KC. How do you think that would have changed his career?

Seven. Thanks for reading.

    I like the new format. Nice and clean. The new comment system seems simpler as well. Here’s hoping those other new features work out.

    Please keep up the nice work, Mr. Posnanski!

    P.S. Are you moderating all the comments yourself, Joe, or is there some kind of automated editor that looks for foul language and offensive material?

    I like the new format and I really like that you’re using SurveyMonkey. The surveys on your old site were so hard to read. Kudos to the new innovations!

    Joe, you needed an option on that last question, or a rewrite of one of the responses.
    I voted `never’ on Bonds because the other negative response was faulty (not all his stats are bogus, he had HoF numbers pre-steroids).

      Also need an “other” on Question 5. I don’t think the MVP should simply go to the best player, but the disagree responses only provide team performance reasons, which I also don’t agree with.

    Poscast? I’m sure you and Mike Schur are currently batting 1.000 with your predictions for this year’s MLB season.

    You “found out” that your daughter is getting braces? You have no say in the matter? Isn’t this the sort of thing a family discusses? Is your wife your boss?

    No “other” for the Chief Wahoo question? I’m not entirely sure how racist it is, or the degree to which that compels its removal, but I’m 100% certain of the following: The Cleveland “Indians” isn’t nearly as cool a name as either the Naps or the Spiders.

      Not sure how racist? I assume you are waffling between “unconscionably racist” and “scratch-my-face-off with-rusty-spoons racist”

    Joe, I’m a big fan of your writing and some of my favorite pieces of yours are your NON-SPORTS takes. With Pixar’s “Toy Story of Terror” on the tube tonight, and assuming you’ve seen all or most of Pixar’s films (every parent in our age group has seen them, right?), I’d love to read a Posnanski blog ranking Pixar movies.

    On Barry Bonds: Guy should, in a world that doesn’t have the stupid behavior clause, be in the Hall of Fame, but this world has that clause, so therefore, there is a problem.

    Joe, lost you for 2 weeks, thought you were on vacation. Before you change sites, please make sure to post something on the old one so it comes through RSS. Thanks!
