Latest Leaders update

For those of you eagerly awaiting the next installment of the MLBlogs Latest Leaders, it’s coming very soon. We’re switching things up so the rankings will be based on calendar months, so The Happy Youngster and Red State Blue State have a week to try to catch Confessions of a She-Fan

On the subject of blog traffic, we’re noticing that the new ratings and related entries feature has helped introduce readers to new blogs around our online community.

Also, we’re always looking for new blogs to spotlight as the Featured MLBlogger on our front page. If you want to be featured in that space, you’ll want to make sure you have a profile picture up in your blog. That (along with quality blogging, of course) is a prerequisite for consideration for that spot.

And speaking of new blogs, we’ve got some new additions to MLBlogosphere who wear spikes, with new player blogs by Rick Ankiel, Matt Holliday and Derek Lowe joining Torii Hunter, all sponsored by Sharp.

And last but not least, make sure you’re voting for your All-Star Game picks!

Ballots and Blogs

Today we launched the All-Star Game Ballot and here is my MLB.com story with all the details. It makes for great baseball blogging material, and I look forward to frequent blogging on the subject between now and what probably will be another record-shattering voting finish during the summer. Just to get things started, below is the thank-you page for my first of 25 ballots I will submit, to show my votes. I have an all-Dodger outfield (justified because Kemp is having the best start, Ethier was just named NL Player of the Week, Manny is Manny to me and they look like baseball’s best club right now) and right now I feel like the left side of the AL infield, once a Yankee province, belongs to the Rays (sorry, Jeter fans).
