Wanted to wish you and the rest of MLB Advanced Media a fantastic “Happy First Anniversary” to salute our move to last season. It doesn’t even seem like a full year since we packed up our stuff and moved to the new format. Sure some cherished things got lost in the shuffle, but the move was exciting and did open some new avenues for seeking out new blogs and resurrecting a few ones on life support. Change tends to make all of us rant, rave and throw a few keyboards, but a year later…It was the right thing to do.

I know the past year had rough moments for all of us as we adjusted to the new “home”, but in the end we are a tighter and more exciting baseball inspired neighborhood within the strong metropolis that is WordPress. Thank you again for taking and pushing us on that journey because I know it would not have been one we would have done without our friends, yourself or MLB’s support.

OK, that’s interesting. According to my WordPress dashboard, I had 2,500 page views in April, yet ranked 46th.

Are you using a “MLBlogs Theme” — If you aren’t then your hits won’t count? That’s the only thing I can think of?


I had cracked the top 50 a long time ago, sometime two seasons ago, and I’m eager to earn my spot back this summer. Does anyone have an idea how many monthly page views #50 on the list of fan blogs gets?

Whew! Still checked in at #16 after a slow start to the regular season for me. Thanks for the continued readership everyone! I’ll be back in the saddle soon (I blogged earlier tonight already!) as I’ll soon stop working two full-time jobs.


MoreSplashHits back in the top 50 again. Doubled our best month in page views, but still only good enough for 46? Wow. Great to get another Giants blog into the Top 50.

It’s always an honor to be listed among such passionate baseball fans. As is my custom, here’s a few thoughts on the number 12.
Thanks for reading, as always.


Baseball is back! Glad to be at #13 on the list and even more glad to have finally attended my first Giants game of this season a few nights ago. Nothing quite like that 🙂 Happy May, MLBloggers!

Congratulations to everyone on this month’s list. I’m not in the Top 50, but pleased to say I had my best month since last October’s World Series and my second best month since the blogs moved to WordPress! Have a great season, everyone!

Congratulations to everyone who made the list, rookies and seasoned vets alike, and thank you to everyone who continues to read my blog! Hopefully my Angels can start tearing up the rankings soon themselves. I lucked out and was there for Weaver’s no hitter tonight and think that maybe, just maybe they’ve finally got that spark! 🙂

Hey, thanks to those who stopped by and checked out our little blog. Fun times.

I always enjoy my time on the mountain top in the off-season, now it is time to turn it over again to an active and great ball-hawk. I can tell you all officially, Zack got more than 40,489 page views (That was my April total). Was a great first month of baseball with tons of on and off the field surprises, a Sox perfecto, surprising injuries and roster moves as well as a few jaw-dropping Rays walk-off moments. The bad part is we have exhausted almost 15% of the 2012 season, but I truly anticipate the next 85% to be glorious….all the way to the first days of NOV.

Always a blast writing my prose, and also reading some of the fantastic news and views of others as they embrace this grand game. Thank you again, one and all for your support and comments…..Now let’s get back to the games!

New blog recently started, come check it out

Up a 1000 views and move up just 1 spot from 42 to 41 haha, everyone must’ve killed it this month, great job! Guess we’ll keep plugging away!

Thanks, as always, Mark! It’s always cool to see the list come out. #15 this month for me!

Congratulatios on #36! The 100 tag is for being on the top 100 for the year.
Congratulations on everyone’s ranking. Thank you for those that visit my blog!

Sweet! #36 in my first month!. Now how do I go about getting one of those Top 100 tags on my site?
