Latest Leaders – July 2012

Latest Leaders logoWe’re into the final third of the season at and the Trade Deadline has passed. Not surprisingly, the Trade Buzz behemoth rode that excitement to the overall top spot, as’s team of beat writers kept us all up to date on the very latest on the trade front. Elsewhere in the MLB PRO Division, Camille Campins Adams, wife of Yankees prospect David Adams, jumps past Mitch Williams to make her Latest Leaders debut with My Serendipitous Life as a Baseball Wife. While the Oakland A’s have blossomed this season, so has A’s Farm, which continues to climb the FAN rankings all the way now to sixth. July was a big month for Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo and also for Cubs beat writer Carrie Muskat, who cleans up in the Beat Reporter standings. Congratulations to all who made the list, and remember to always leave your full URL with comments here and use TW/FB widgets to help grow your following.

I really thought I had commented here! I know I did not dream typing it. Maybe it went into Spam. Anyway, Congrats to everyone on the list and even those that are not there yet! It is a labor of love. Thanks for everyone that cruises thru my blog! I was 21. Roberto Clemente!
I read Wrigley Regurlar about AJ Burnet’s near no-hitter of the Cubs and the Cubs not being no hit since 1965. I automatically think of of that Perfect game in 1965 on Spetember 9th.

Wow I made this list at 46th. Never thought my little Pirates blog would do that.

I have to admit it was nice to see my blog on the list. #37 in the fans list. Now I want to check out the other blogs on the list.

Hey, Mark. I need help with something I can’t seem to figure out on my own. I changed my profile picture and now it shows up small (like yours above) instead of a bit bigger (like Hample’s) on the top right column of my blog. Any idea why this is and how I can change it to the bigger version?

Thanks to everyone who checked out our blog. Keep up the good work, guys. Keep having fun at the ballpark.

It’s always an honor to find myself on this list, regardless of how high or low I am. I’ve gotten a chance to network with some amazing people in the MLBlogs community this year, and look forward to hopefully connecting with many more. Congrats to all of those who made the list, and thanks to everyone who makes this community such a great place!

Yay for the list! It always makes the beginning of the month fun. Congratulations to everyone who made it on this month but, even more so, to everyone out there for just continuing to blog. I love reading your thoughts on the season! And thanks again to everyone who continues to read my blog!

It’s great to see this list every month! Thanks to all the awesome readers!

We are very glad to do it…goal is to help more fans find each other. Have a great weekend!

Whew! Just made the list, #49. One big traffic day on July 31st probably put me on the list for the third straight month thanks to AJ Burnet’s near no-hitter of the Cubs and my recent post about the Cubs not being no hit since 1965, . Congrats to everyone on the list and thanks to all that have stopped by to put me on the list again.


P.S. I don’t see it on the list, so I know that everyone is missing out on a great blog; visit ( One Strike Away…..Twice). You can catch up on all your Rangers news and read some of the best writing in our little baseball community.

Congrats to all on the list. I had a nice run on the Fans list, dating back to the end of last year, but I switched a different WordPress theme and am no longer on the list here. Everything changes in life. Best to everyone here.

Thanks, Mark. We’re movin’ on up – #6, our highest rank yet! If you haven’t already, be sure to check us out A’s fans!

Been a wild July with the climax of the Trade Deadline where some teams went for broke, while others trusted their hands and stayed in the game with aces and Wild Cards on the horizon. Also this month some of us had to make decisions pertaining to the new ads on our sites, and it looks like a lot of us stayed the course instead of venturing outside the threshold.

Thank you again for all who have cruised by, sent comments or just took in my little write with a grain of salt. Going to be a wild rest of the Dog Days of Summer as most of the MLB will find themselves on waivers as some point, with a few of them possibly changing venues before the September 1st Call-Up announcements. Congrats to everyone who made the Top 50, and to those who didn’t…Keep plugging away, I’m a great example of someone who strolled up the ranks slowly and now have a good view of the MLB terrain. The month of August should definitely fill us with some special moments, and lasting memories…I can’t wait!

Thanks, as always, for putting this together, Mark! Another 12 ranking. Hope to get into to the top 10 this month! Thanks to everyone for checking out The Ballpark Guide blog.

Thank you so much! I am really enjoying writing and documenting David and my experience in the Yankees minor league system. I appreciate the support! 🙂

Highest finish ever for my biggest month ever in page views. More than double any previous month for me. Thanks to everyone for checking in during the month. August will bring plenty of new content despite the Brewers not living up to pre-season expectations.
