Earlier this year, CBS acquired Scout. Since then, the CBS team has been working to prepare a new platform for all aspects of all of Scout’s sites to improve stability and scalability. This new platform, based on proven CBS technology, includes the forums, front page and articles. User accounts, prior articles, media, and recent forum posts on the current Scout Cardinals site (“scout.com/mlb/cardinals”) will be migrated to the new platform for the early July cutover.
However, this new system does not support minor league baseball. Scout’s rich minor league capabilities – including team rosters, player profile histories and article linkages – that have been a major advantage for The Cardinal Nation and its readers are not part of the new system design.
As a result, I have made the difficult decision to take The Cardinal Nation out of the Scout network after more than 12 years. This will be effective at the end of June, prior to the Scout system migration.
Going forward, The Cardinal Nation and its staff will operate on its own new and independent platform that includes free and member articles and separate forums just as today. The Cardinal Nation’s new site, at the same URL, “thecardinalnation.com”, will go live July 1.
