Congrats to our friend Zoë Rice, the most-visited fan MLBlogger so far this season.
Here’s the tough news to swallow: Almost all of you have been outblogged by a dog.
Since we relaunched this community on Opening Day, here is the ranking:
TOP 10 FAN MLBLOGS
- Pick Me Up Some Mets!
- Big Pupi – Baseball Dog Blogger
- The Brewer Nation
- Red State Blue State
- Prince of New York
- Bleeding Pinstripes
- Yankees Chick
- Baseball Cleats & Shoes
- It’s a Kind of a Family. It’s a Kind of Insanity.
TOP 10 OVERALL MLBLOGS:
- Inside the Dodgers
- Trade Talk
- Bombers Beat
- Beck’s Blog
- The Pulse (Mark Derosa)
- The Baseball Collector
- Frenchy’s Forum (Jeff Francoeur)
- Obviously, You’re Not a Golfer
- Inside the White Sox

Maintained on a constant basis by our 30 MLB.com beat writers, it is showing up on blogrolls all over as the most legit source for trade discussion leading up to the July 31 deadline.

Through his baseball collecting and widespread publicity, he also has brought to the MLBlogs community a lot of visitors who have found other MLBloggers.
Here’s another really good blog with a passion for collecting baseballs:
If you want some easy traffic to your blog, leave comments here regularly and always include your full URL as a breadcrumb. We are scheduling our next MLBlogs Network upgrade soon and BY FAR at the top of the list of priorities is helping bloggers find each other. Stay tuned.
