Latest Leaders 9/10-17

Page View leaders at MLBlogs for week of Sept. 10-17


Mark DeRosa, by virtue of actual pregame blogging on the same evening
he helped secure teammate Carlos Zambrano’s no-hitter, zoomed to the
top of the MLB PRO BLOG traffic rankings and took the overall top spot.
Yes, it actually helps to have something interesting to say — and if
you read DeRosa regularly, then you know he does just that. Andre
Ethier jumped after a sweet article in the WSJ (see recent post).
Yankee Stadium Memories is now No. 27, and it’s your chance to leave a
comment for viewers about your favorite story if you’ve
ever been to The House That Ruth Built.

Red State Blue State* is numero uno among fan MLBlogs, and I actually owe that blogging tour de force an apology because I just realized that the same should have been true in the previous Latest Leaders. It seems that while I was working the Olympics in Beijing and shooting video of Giant Pandas and jumping fences to get a one-on-one with Jacques Rogge, we launched our own Jim Molony’s MLBlog, and somehow chose the same name for it that belonged to an already well-established MLBlog by Carl the Cabbie. So that’s why Inside Pitch was listed No. 1 in the previous leaders — and actually it should have appeared somewhere in the midst of MLB PRO BLOG leaders instead. No offense to our buddy Carl, but that’s why Inside Pitch was listed high last time — should not have been considered a fan MLBlog template. Ah, the intrigue and drama at Latest Leaders! Next time I promise there will be more brainstorming about creative MLBlogs titles here at MLBAM! Right behind RSBS is Paul the Prince, and let’s hear it for Don at Rock Pile Rant, now #3 and our resident catcher after he caught someone stealing. Jane Heller’s meteoric rise here continues unabated. Make room for Barrel Man’s Brewings. Kyle at Redbird Report profited not only from good blogging but also being the Featured Blog on the homepage for a few days. Nice debut by Bloggin ‘Bout Baseball, one of the best examples of going to games and blogging. Meanwhile, the guy who started A Look at the MLB…From Tallahassee had one page view.

I’ve enjoyed sharing thoughts on the Cubs with everyone that’s read Prose and Ivy and truly value the feedback from those of you who have commented. Always, great to hear how other Cubs/baseball fans feel about how things are going this year…even the fan who called me a moron.

No, let me rephrase that…especially the fan who called me a moron.

Go Cubs Go!
“Prose and Ivy”

All right, let’s go Cubbies! Thanks for all the excitement to push my blog to #21…


Wow, first time all season in the Latest Leaders, and I debut at #9! I know a lot of the traffic I’ve received lately was due to a quote used on the homepage, so thanks for putting that up there! It’s been tough blogging about the Brewers this month, but I still have hope!


How is it that Mets’ Magic Number (who hasn’t posted since July and has 0 comments) is number 46 on that list?

Hey, V, we changed Bronx to Brooklyn, sorry about that. And thanks for your help with the story… everyone keep an eye out soon for our own Vanessa on (can’t say more yet) is the URL for the commenter right above this one. Everyone be sure to leave your full URL including the http://


Thanks for pitching me to the top 25, Big Z! Could we clinch the division soon so that the Cubs blogosphere goes wild?

Awesome to be on the “Fan Fab 49” list …

My blog moved up to #29 … So, with that in mind, I will dedicate this great honor to the “Great” Hall of Fame Yankees pitcher, #29, Jim “Catfish” Hunter !!! … Thanks to all who have visited by blog. You are always welcome !!! … And, to all blogs on the MLB Pro Blog list, and the Fan Fab 49 list — Keep up the excellent work !!! … Jimmy [27NYY] …

The ‘Burgh Blues needs to make its dent! PLEASE VISIT!

It seems like I’m always on the top 10 ! Thanks everyone !


Hey Mark, thanks for featuring Flair For The Dramatic on MLBlogs. I’m actually from Brooklyn, but nice to be up on the front page 🙂
V –

Memo to MLBloggers: Another way to be seen is to be in the Featured MLBlog spot on (or if you prefer). New rule: Gotta have a profile pic of yourself to be there. We want to see who MLBloggers are, so please also let us know in comments here if you qualify and want to be included there. That’s only an 80×80 thumb but it works.

Everyone, help Phillies Red Pinstripes break into the top 20 for next week’s Latest Leaders. 🙂

Maybe RSBS will be kind enough to share “Secrets of my Success” with other MLBloggers. You see Jeff’s comments around the MLBlogosphere with his link often and that’s one definite traffic-builder. Just randomly hit MLBlogs. Lots of them mentioned here, always in Most Recently Active, tag search results by team or topic, etc. All: If you show the love to other MLBloggers, they show it back.

It’s nice to see that I’m back in the top 25. I’m guessing the link to my post in the last blog must’ve helped a lot. Not to see if I can break into the top twenty before next week.

Jeff: Yeah, I thought about just posting the standings with no other text and covering my butt but imadope. There was a big shroud of jetlag over me at about the time we were discussing Mo’s (rockin) Inside Pitch blog. I should have noticed that in the Omniture stats. And just for the record we still love Carl the Cabbie’s Inside Pitch blog. That’s one of the longest-running active blogs here. Someone should change their blog title, though. One could be Outside Pitch.

Becca: You’re an MLB PRO BLOG template because I recruited you a couple of years back as a comp account when we were a pay site. (I wanted at least one of every element in a ballpark experience, such as groundskeeper and broadcaster and mascot and manager and ballgirl and player, and we were lacking someone who baked cookies that the guys munch in the bullpen.) So you would be in those standings, and fyi you’re somewhere in the top 40 or 50 on those, can’t remember.

I’m still aiming to break the top fan 49 by the end of the year! But #46? That blog hasn’t even been updated in over a year… Maybe I need to buy friends and influence them? With key lime meringues?


Thank you, Mark, for the correction. Good to know honest people still exist. You’re tops in the RSBS book! Wanna run for prez?

The ‘Burgh Blues has vanished from the standings!? This has to change before the final rankings are released!
