Sad to hear. Vox is closing it down. I've always enjoyed Sickels' work and it was nice that a national voice was a Twins fan. Hope he lands on his feet.

Sad face, but then, I only went once a month or so.....and I guess most didn't go as often as they go to other sites.
It's IL now, btw, not DL.....

We will find John Sickels. We will read John Sickels. And we will be the better for it.

Hang in there John. Your writing and research is unique and appreciated.

Happens.Sickels had his minorleagueball.com blog for years and then he wanted to monetize it.It did not work out.Blogging is a labor of love.Very few blogs make it when they cross the for profit line...
Also, it does not look like it is shutting down... Just moving to a different self-financed spot.

Wonder where John will go... It's a great site and a must read. Big mistake by Vox.
This is unfortunate, though John Sickels will land on his feet and that's' really the key... I hope so at least. He's always been good to me!

Not sure if we updated this but apparently Sickels is writing for the Atlantic.

I think you mean The Athletic.
I must admit, when I first heard of The Athletic, I too thought it was The Atlantic. I kept wondering why sports writers kept going to an old Boston publication focusing on current events. And I further kept wondering why I couldn't find them when I tried to search the site.
