I tried reaching out to JW via a Comcast e-mail account, hoping he'd do something - update header to 2015, permaban Tal Venada, give a jump to newest comments link, or finally smothering the site with a pillow, but didn't receive a reply.

Sad, but true. The 10th anniversary of BL deserves better, but I don't think it will happen. Jerry, aka "Tal," couldn't make the cut on Crossing Broad, so he came here to ruin what was left of the joint.

And after a salami, the Phillies are losing to a college team.

Nobody has interest. Stop posting. Shocked that JW isn't live tweeting today's game, or that he hasn't changed the BL header to reflect 2015. On that note, sad that the site has devolved into Tal Venada's link playground. He's finishing the BL ruination that Phlipper began. And r00b's nephew just drew a bases loaded walk to tie the game. Once upon a time, that would have started a barrage of jokes.

Ryan Lawrence retweeted Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi 24m24 minutes ago #Rangers and #Phillies had in-depth trade talks on Cole Hamels before Texas agreed to Yovani Gallardo trade, source says.

Yes, not many reasons for a heavy volume of posting. The Gnats GM makes a power signing. Our GM publicly reprimands Ryan Howard for not being as good as he used to be. #Phillies2015

Because we won so many World Series when we went all out for the best rotation money could buy. Yeah.

Jayson Stark ‏@jaysonst 2m2 minutes ago One more on Hamels: #Phillies source says they've never made a "formal ask" on any player or package for Hamels b/c never were close enough

More Twitter stuff from Jayson Stark: Tweets Jayson Stark ‏@jaysonst 46s47 seconds ago Source said only offer for Hamels came from club that has never been mentioned in media. Described offer as "good" but "not good enough" Phillies source also disputed notion Phillies have asked clubs for their 2 or 3 best prospects for Hamels. They've told clubs to make offers Both sources also said Rollins isn't interested in getting traded to #Yankees so it was a moot point to pursue this further. Heard from 2 more sources on Rollins-to-NYY report. #Phillies source said all #Yankees offered was a "utility player" & not close to enough

Haven't checked here in a while. Just found out about the ad. Great job.

Conway: Yeah, Fire/EMS doesn't compare. I'm in Chester County. A guy used to do the police feed, but stopped earlier this year. I think it is eventually converting to digital, so maybe a digital scanner would work down here once it does.

Juums: Not going to happen. He's still in the hunt for the batting title. r00b isn't about to let that possibility slip away.

Pretty sure they took Utley out just to shore up the defense in the infield.
