Top 100 MLB.com Blogs


It’s hard to believe we are entering the 10th season of blogging at MLB.com! Now comes the annual tip of the hat to all of the best blogs in our community, or at least the ones who had what it took to draw the largest followings. Congratulations to everyone who made the Top 100 MLB.com Blogs list, based on page views from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2013. If you’re on the list, make sure you add your Top 100 MLB.com Blogs badge to your sidebar, with the link to this post. That goes for you active players, front-office crews, player wives, groundskeepers, fans, photogs, broadcasters and Idols like Scotty McCreery. The coming year promises to be even better, so a big Thank You to everyone in our community — whether you’re a veteran or a rookie.

Our first pitch: It’s time for Dodger Insider

Please welcome the first major addition to the MLB.com Blogs community in 2014: DODGERS INSIDER. Jon Weisman is part of a group from the Dodgers’ front office that has begun regular posting on the PRO blog, and it will be THE blog destination for the club’s fans. dodgerinsider.mlblogs.com

Dodger Insider

By Jon Weisman

Welcome to Dodger Insider!

We intend for this blog to quickly become a new destination for comprehensive Dodger coverage. Everything in the Dodger universe, from what’s happening on and off the field to the scoop on tickets, promotions and events in the community, you’ll find highlighted here. We’ll have interviews, video highlights, analysis, think pieces and more. We hope to be a reference guide for the casual and hardcore fan alike.

For those who know me from Dodger Thoughts, the big change will be that I’m no longer a one-man band. We’ll have contributions from several in the organization and insider access.

Monday is launch day. Get ready to enjoy the ride.
