Around the Blogs

Has it ever been better than the Summer of 1941 in Major League Baseball? As good as last year was and as good as this year could be, one blogger sees the legend of that season as untouchable as Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak or the last .400 season, by Ted Williams. Take a look back on Summer of ’41 Forever and let the author know what you think.

MLB Network’s Mitch Williams started his Wild Things blog earlier this year, and he’s hit the ground running. The former closer’s latest post outlines why he thinks the Rangers will be back in the Fall Classic for the third year running. See what Mitch has to say and leave him some feedback with a comment.

3 Up, 3 Down is an ambitious project by six fans — one per division — who are serving up all kinds of fresh content for their readers. They’ve got a podcast. They picked preseason all-division teams. And of course they’re giving their takes on the latest happenings from around the game.

Meanwhile, Ben Rouse continues to bring fans along for the ride on his Brewers Mission 162 to raise funds and awareness for a great cause, Be The Match. Live vicariously through Ben as he takes in every single 2012 Brewers regular season game in person and chronicles the incredible experience in his blog.

Over at The Baseball Haven, Evan Vogel is having some Fun With Projections, taking some of the early numbers from around baseball and projecting what they’d look like over the full 162 games.

Beach season will be here before we know it, so make sure you stay on top of the latest must-reads for baseball fans with the Baseball Books blog. Read reviews, leave your two cents in the comments, and see where to buy these books. Or write up your own book review like Jenn at Phillies Phollowers and it may get highlighted with an excerpt and link like hers did.
