The Lincecum thread just got moved to the Minor League/College forum. I'd anticipate that this one will soon follow suit.
Why is that a bad thing? It's not like they were deleted. We just have to go to the proper (see: underutilized) forum to check them now.
It's not that big of a deal, but I don't understand why someone complained to have it moved. In years past, top prospect "Watch Threads" have been permitted to reside in the Leftovers forum. Just last year, I remember coming here to visit "Watches" for Cole Hamels, Jered Weaver, and Chad Billingsley, among others...
You are absolutely correct.

I understand the need to keep some minor league threads apart from leftovers in order to prevent it from being overrun. However, if the topic has a lot of interest and there's a good chance the player will be up soon, I like having it available to multiple viewpoints. While I enjoy reading through the minor league forum, sending the 26 page Lincecum thread there is basically sentencing it to death.
You are also correct.
I've been making more of an effort to participate in the Injury/Update Forum, as I think it's totally underutilized, and much of what should be there gets kicked into here (which isn't nearly as big a deal as a DTKW thread being here, as you guys noted), but instead of seeing a thread shot over there as sentenced to death, we should hop over and continue discussing it, and try and get that forum the sort of traffic it deserves.
Just one man's opinion on his 10,000th post.
