Where to find the PRO blogs

Ever want to know who’s blogging along with you in the Major League Baseball family? We’ve just added a new page on that indexes all (mostly) active accounts with the PRO theme, generally those bloggers who are employed by MLB. These range from players like Marlon Byrd and Torii Hunter to front-office execs like Bob Rose and Tommy Lasorda  to beat reporters like Jen Langosch and Bryan Hoch. Did you know the Phillies Ballgirls are on here?

Check out the brand-new MLBlog of MLB Official Historian John Thorn if you haven’t already, and learn more about the origins of baseball. See what Keith Olbermann is blogging on Baseball Nerd, and get help for your roster from the Fantasy 411 gurus. And don’t miss a chance to ask Ozzie Guillen questions and see if he answers them.

It’s the only place where you can blog along with a wide variety of Major League personnel, and we’ll keep that page updated as we add new accounts regularly. With all the MLBlogs now on, expect that number of interested MLB bloggers to go up, too. Also be sure to see if you ranked in our Latest Leaders, as seen in the previous post, and keep the feedback coming in comments here about the new platform while also letting us know if you’ve done something special with the new WP software so we can help show off your blog.

Latest Leaders – Feb. 5-15

Just changed the profile pic here to reflect MLBloggers like this one in Mexico and this one in the UK and this one in Utah and this one in Canada — examples of how people are blogging about baseball all over the world.

Latest Leaders in the MLBlogs Network by page view, for the period from Feb. 5-15:


You will start to see a lot of change in this category as we have just rolled out 30 beat writer MLBlogs over the past several days. Some of them are just getting up and running, and already we see Todd Zolecki’s Zo Zone (Phillies) jump to No. 11, with Mark Bowman (Braves) and Mark Sheldon (Reds) posting a quick 18 and 20, respectively. We’re enjoying the new Reds Internal Affairs by a Reds intern, who debuts at 38. Hot Stove was running 80 percent of all MLBlogs traffic during the offseason and was down to 37 percent in this latest ranking period, but that still dwarfs any MLBlog so it might be on top for a while. We don’t want to just shelve that blog; what do you suggest we do with it to keep it relevant, since the beat writers will stop posting to that now and maintain their own MLBlogs in-season?

Jane Heller became the first fan blogger to crack the overall top 10 in the MLBlogs Network (9 overall, 1 in Fans), riding the high of her popular new book “Confessions of a She-Fan” — and Ben Platt’s book review that appeared on, and FutureAngels went from a regular top-10 to completely off the list and then right back to No. 7, as players reported to camp. A Tigers fan has come out of nowhere to take the 9 spot with “the daily rant.” Look at Thomas coming in strong at 10 with his Baseball Cleats & Shoes money-maker MLBlog — and he also locked down 37 with Baseball Bats. There’s a recession-busting blogger! Elizabeth vaulted from 17th to 11th, and Jen of Phillies Phollowers from 24th to 13th. King of Cali zooms from 46 to 18, and Tom from Rocky Mountain Way jumps in at 19. Welcome to our friend Bern at 47 with This Fan’s Life — and best wishes on the job search (help her if you can). Baby Paul is bringing up the rear while being reared as a Rockies fan.

What do many of the leaders have in common? They comment on other MLBlogs and always leave their full URL, growing the community while bringing people back to their great blogs. Also be sure to join us on our Official MLBlogs Twitter — and just follow us @mlblogs if you already are on Twitter. Post a tweet there whenever you blog and then use to shrink your URL for an easy plug for your post.

Speaking of Twitter, one of our MLBlogs members there is our longtime friend MC Hammer (1970s Oakland A’s batboy), who tweeted to say he is headed to Spring Training in AZ for some batting practice. Hammer says he is eager to rekindle his MLBlog so look for that to spring back to life soon and maybe even put a past chart-buster into the Latest Leaders.
