2014 was a very good year for the our site, if not really for our team. Visits and page views were way up over 2013 and comments were up more than 2.5 times over 2013. You guys really do amaze me by taking posts and making them so much more interesting by having great conversations in the comment threads.
We had 1351 front page posts (not counting game threads) in 2014, down some from 2013 when we were above 1500 posts (is it any wonder that sometimes I sit staring at the computer wondering if we have finally said everything there is to say about the Blue Jays?). I'm coming up to 6000 career posts myself, which scares me.
Here are some leader boards from last year:
Tom Dakers 12059
Alan F. 7482
Congratulations Pikachu. Let's see, 20749 posts, 365 days in a year, that's just under 57 a day. Last year's leader bumped his total up by more than 6000 comments and drops to second. I'm 2000 comments up from 2013 and drop from 3rd to 5th. I'm thinking I need to go on PEDs to keep up with the younger commenters.
As always, if you want to get on this list for next year...well, you can see want you need to do. Most of the ones on the list are GameThread regulars, that really bumps up your comment count.

Great job King Kelly, a two time champion.
We had a lot more FanPosts than in the past, but we can always use more. I love reading them. They are a great way to share your opinions.

Yeah, the FanShots are a problem, buried at the bottom of the page. I have an edge, as I can put mine on the front page. If you do have one that you think is particularly good, you can always send me an email (email@example.com) and I can put it up on the front page.
Thanks all, and if you want to see your name on our leader board next year...well you know what you have to do.
