    I'd like to encourage you to register for the BBWAA.com message board, if you haven't already (and most of you haven't).

    We are trying to make the board a place for debate of various issues that we discuss at our meetings. Call it a virtual BBWAA meeting 365 days a year. There is also a directory of members (which needs updating) and a guide to ballparks (which needs updating).

    See, the message board needs you! We'd like to get a significant portion of the membership signed up before the winter meetings, so those who aren't there can take part in the issues discussed.

    To sign up, just go to http://bbwaa.com/board

    Use your real name to register, and pick your own password. Piece of cake.

    Also, tell your BBWAA friends!

    Can I still read this if I'm not a BBWAA member?

    No. BBWAA.com is public, but the message board isn't.

    Does this pertain to honorary members, too?

    It's nice that all 33 active BBWAA members have their own secret message board, I guess.

    There's a lot more than 33. Unless Rickey Henderson was elected to the Hall of Fame with 29 votes.

    I'm talking about people who work covering baseball on a day-to-day basis, and actually find any value in BBWAA membership.

    The Hall of Fame voters are people who have at least 10 years of membership, and the group includes a lot of people who haven't been anywhere near a ballpark in a long time.
