POLL: How Should We Handle The New JS Paywall?

As many/most of you have probably heard by now, on Wednesday the Journal Sentinel plans to implement a new digital subscription plan. This new policy will limit your ability to read JS content online unless you're willing to pay $2.35 per week (or pay $2.30/week and take a copy of the Sunday paper).

I've always made an effort to limit the subscriber-only content linked in the Frosty Mug, because I feel like a large portion of you don't pay for content online and likely have no interest in doing so. Personally, I don't subscribe to ESPN Insider, Baseball America, Baseball Prospectus or any other online publications I'd have to pay for*. There's so much freely available content out there that I've never felt the need to spend money on more.

The JS, however, is a key part of the work we do here on a day-to-day basis. Since Milwaukee is a small market and the Brewers are largely un or undercovered by many of the state's news outlets, our only consistently linkable sources of everyday Brewer coverage during the offseason are the JS reporters (primarily Tom Haudricourt and Todd Rosiak) and Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. McCalvy does great work and we're lucky to have him, but his coverage by itself isn't really enough to power the daily news element of the Frosty Mug.

I'd like your help deciding how we proceed here. Vote in the poll below, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

* - I do subscribe to the B-Ref Play Index but that's more of a resource than a publication.
