We have been hard at work on redesigning aspects of Baseball Prospectus, from the content to the way we present it to you, and I'm happy to announce one of these items is now available for your use.

Remember the old Fantasy page for BP.com, where you had a listing of the offerings (such as the Fantasy Focus column) as well as links to the Depth Charts and the Player Forecast Manager? That has been combined with the Fantasy Beat blog to give fantasy subscribers a one-stop shop for all of their content and fantasy tool needs. When you now visit baseballprospectus.com/fantasy, you will be greeted by 12 blog entries, which will be much easier than navigating through all of the various blogs on the front page. On the right sidebar, the archives go even further back (notice that, right now, the 12 articles displayed go back to April 9, but the sidebar goes back to March 30).

You will see links to our exclusive fantasy content on the sidebar as well, such as the aforementioned Depth Charts, the PFM, our weighted mean PECOTA spreadsheet, HACKING MASS, the PECOTA cards--it's all there for you alongside the content. Beneath that you will also notice that you can organize by blog, column, author, or article type. If all you want to see is the work of, say, Craig Brown, then you will have that option at your disposal. If you want to head off to read Tommy Bennett after finishing with your morning dose of fantasy coverage, you don't even have to leave this landing page.

So please, bookmark the new landing page for fantasy content (or utilize our brand new RSS feeds for the blogs!) and let us know what you think.

Hey Marc, glad you're making upgrades to the fantasy component. Have a question about the depth charts though. Do you guys ever update it or does it stay the same from the beginning of the season? I was thinking of picking up Arias (since I have Kinsler) and wanted to know where he bats in the lineup. Unfortunately you still have Kinsler in the spot with Arias as his second backup.

Marc, it looks like there's a problem with the Fantasy content subscribers like myself. At the top of the article it says I can read it, but then cuts it off at the end of the second paragraph and says I have to increase my subscription to see the Fantasy articles, like the second half is checking for full subscribers.

A bit scary there's a pop up ad before even getting to this note. I know you folks have to make money, but....

So what happened to the new fantasy page? It looks like you've gone back to the old one now.
