This is the main page for the Compendium of the 2011-12 offseason. Bookmark this post for a collection of links to various posts on the different issues and storylines surrounding the Phils, plus the opinions and analysis of the Crashburn Alley staff. This post will be updated as the individual posts update. Bear with us in the early going; we’ll try to keep everything organized and filled with content, but the offseason is young.

A more detailed description of what the Compendium is after the jump:
Hi, folks! I know you’re all very excited to be dealing with offseason drama already after the Phils’ loss in the Division Series, but cheer up! We here at the Alley have come up with a way to keep you informed and updated on every hot topic involving your Phils this winter.
We’re calling it the Compendium. One post will serve as a home base for every offseason issue, with each of said issues getting their own dedicated post. If news breaks – whether it involves Jimmy Rollins and his contract negotiations, the search for a left fielder or possible progress toward an extension for Cole Hamels – that corresponding post will be updated with the news, with the added perk of something you can’t get anywhere else: evolving analysis and opinions on these topics from us here at the Alley as the news breaks.
Perhaps I’m inflating our egos a bit too much to think of that as the main selling point, but the hope with this idea is that, with links to every offseason issue worth discussing contained in one single post, you’ll have a go-to destination when you want to hear a take (or three!) on a given bit of news.
We’ll keep you updated as best we can. Hopefully, this winter yields productivity and an improved 2012 club. Go Phils.
