Farewell, John (but not goodbye)

As you likely know by now, today is John’s last day here with the Brewers.

He is moving to Arizona with the other, more important “Cait” in his life, his lovely wife, Kate.

I just wanted to take a moment to publicly thank John for being such a great co-worker, co-author and friend over the last decade. Those of you who know him personally will agree that he’s one of the kindest, friendliest, enthusiastic people you’ll ever meet.

He’s very passionate about sports and I know he’ll succeed in his new position with the Phoenix Mercury.

It’s been a lot of fun working on the blog together. We’ve shared a lot of great memories over the years and from our “What John and Cait Ate” food reviews to our social media nights, it just won’t be the same without him.

Here we are celebrating our #1 Pro Blog Ranking (and a sweet NLDS Victory over the Diamondbacks). Thanks for reading!

John will be greatly missed here in the office and I know all of you will miss his posts. I promise that I will do my best to fill in those gaps. (As an aside: We’ll also need a new name for the blog now, so if you have any suggestions, tweet them at me @CMoyer or post in the comments below.)

It's John's last day, but I'm saying farewell and not goodbye.

It’s John’s last day, but I’m saying farewell and not goodbye.

But this is a farewell to John, not goodbye. We’ll see each other down in Arizona for Spring Training and I know he’ll be back to visit. And you know we both love social media, so you can be assured we’ll “see” each other on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Speaking of which, if you’re not already following him on Twitter, you can keep tabs on him @JStein1981.

Again, John, it’s been a real pleasure working with you. I wish you and Kate all the best in this new chapter.

Cheers!

Thank You for Making Us #3 in 2013!

We just received some terrific news–John and Cait… Plus 9  was the #3 blog in all of MLB Pro Blogs for 2013!

This is a great honor as we are always “competing” with a number of awesome blogs across the MLBlogs platform. Great new photo blogs like the SF Giants Photos Blog and Dodgers Photo Blog are tough to beat.  Other front office insider blogs like Jamie Ramsey’s Better Off Red and the Mariners From the Corner of Edgar and Dave  continue to provide us with inspiration for JCP9.

But really, it’s all thanks to you–our readers!

As we kick of 2014, we hope to continue to be your source for an inside look at the Brewers and what’s going on at One Brewers Way.

We’re counting down to Brewers On Deck and Opening Day right along with you and we can’t wait for the new season to start!

Cheers!

We’re Number One (Again)… Because of YOU!

We just received some terrific news–John and Cait… Plus 9  was the top MLB Pro Blog for the second month in a row!

April was a great month for us and and we carried that into a strong May here on the blog. This is a great honor as we are always competing with a number of awesome blogs across the MLBlogs platform. Great new photo blogs like the SF Giants Photos Blog and Dodgers Photo Blog are tough to beat.  Other front office insider blogs like Jamie Ramsey’s Better Off Red and the Mariners From the Corner of Edgar and Dave  continue to provide us with inspiration for JCP9.

But really, it’s all thanks to you–our readers!

It was a busy May for us and we hope to continue to be the place for an inside look at the Brewers. We would not be number one without our readers, so to celebrate, we thought we’d do another fun giveaway with trivia related to the blog.

The first person to answer the following questions in the comment field below will win a prize package consisting of:

JCP9 Prize May

Ready? Here’s what you need to answer–three questions designed for you to go back through our archives!

  • From the group of players that John saw in the 2011 Arizona Fall League, how many are currently with the Big League Brewers now?
  • Which former Brewers player was Cait paired with at the Davey Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament in 2012?
  • We’ve hosted Social Media Night the last two years and a each time, a different Brewers player has made a guest appearance. Name the players.

Good luck!

UPDATE at 2:40pm CT: Congrats to Travis B. You’re the winner! Wow, that was quick!

Thanks again for reading everyone, it has truly been a pleasure to be able to engage with all of you; it was especially fun for us to meet those of you who came out to Social Media Night in person as well!

We are very fortunate to each have an inside look at the team and want to give you as much of a look inside the organization as we can. Please continue to let us know your comments, criticisms and ideas as we continue to provide our own behind-the-scenes look at Brewers baseball.  We love your feedback and will use it to hopefully stay number one in the rankings!

Cheers!
