Latest Leaders – January 2013

Latest Leaders logoBaseball is just days away now, and the excitement is building as more and more new blogs are created here on the best blogging platform in the sport. Our first monthly Latest Leaders of 2013 has the usual mix of proven veterans and promising newcomers. The biggest news has to be the Brewers’ John & Cait…Plus Nine dethroning the Hot Stove traffic magnet for the overall top spot, with Jamie Ramsey’s Better Off Red just behind. Evan Vogel cracked the FAN Top 10 in December and now his blog The Baseball Haven is up to No. 5, so watch out there. Carrie Muskat is still in command on the list of  MLB.com beat reporters, regardless of the fortunes of the Cubs team she covers. Congratulations to everyone who made the list, and one proven tip to get on the next month’s list is to leave comments on these blogs and include your full URL so they can see your new posts.

Latest Leaders – October 2011

Latest Leaders logoIt was a truly memorable October, thanks to a thrilling Postseason ending in a seven-game World Series. We were excited by the addition of MLB Network analyst and 283-game winner Jim Kaat, sharing his insights in Kaat’s Korner. Keith Olbermann topped the PRO list on the strength of his 10/12 Terry Francona post, and Rays Renegade streaked to the top of the FANS category like a Dan Johnson homer.

Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, New Ballparks


I chatted with Keith Olbermann for a while on the field during Padres batting practice just before the Citi Field opener on Monday, and took the profile pic of him above on his MLBlog. He is really enthused about his MLBlogging, as you can see from his very impassioned posts. Below is a grab of the MSNBC video clip from last night’s show, in which
Rachel Maddow chatted with him about baseball and his
popular MLBlog Baseball Nerd. “Can we do this all the time?” she asked him. Be sure to regularly watch for Keith’s posts, but remember that he already has advised everyone he could care less what you say in the comments. So if you want to get all political, he just doesn’t care. Talk baseball.


Pics from Opening Night at Citi Field

I’ll be working the Yankee Stadium home opener all day and will post some pics, tweets and all that good stuff. This site actually has the best way for me to find my own MLB.com articles, always chronological, in case you want to catch up as it is an Opening Blur. In the meantime, here were some shots I took Monday in Queens — where they now have a ballpark that I consider second to none in baseball.
