Thanks to all of those MLBloggers who have been emailing your Spheroids. Have a batch of them so will get to each one as fast as we can. All you have to do is send your responses to those nine questions asked of previous Spheroids here, which you can see by clicking the category to the right.
Here are a couple of shortcuts some people here may not be aware of:
– Anytime you want to get to the MLBlogs homepage, just type mlb.com/blogs. You can find the link on top of the MLB.com homepage by clicking "Blogs" under the headline stack or from any MLB.com page by clicking "More sites" in the global nav. You can find the link on club site homepages within the headline stack, and on Fan Forum pages. MLBlogs also are linked from the Players Association site at mlbplayers.com and from the MLBP Alumni site. Then there are all your inbound links you hopefully are getting from the overall blogosphere by proactively building your network, searching Technorati, Google, Sphere et al for blogs about subjects you like…and trading links.
– Someone just asked how to make older posts show up. First thing is to make sure Archives are selected at Weblogs–>Edit Design–>Content. Archives in the side panel only show the last 10 months, but our friend Reid noted recently that you can simply click on the headline at the top of your MLBlog and then add archives.html to the full URL.
We’re promoting our colleague Mark Feinsand’s comment thread on the MLBlogs homepage because it is a pretty re-Mark-able chronicle of the life of a losing streak, whether glitch or harbinger. If you scroll through them, you can see the flow of that Oakland series.
Noticed that our fellow MLBlogger Mr. David Wright just jumped to the top of the NL All-Star voting lead at third base. Could be interesting to have a live All-Star blog going by a player next month, no?
Lots of posts about Ben Roethlisberger, such as Prince of New York, Mile High Yankees, Life, Baseball & Eric Byrnes, and A New Pirates Generation. And World Cupping. Nice to see MLBloggers feeling free to blog about not only baseball if you all wanna. We’re all sports fans. Mavs look invincible, Team USA looks invisible.
Bruce Markusen had a really nice tribute to 1966 World Series star and noted prankster Moe Drabowsky, who just passed away.
This was promoted most of the day Monday on the MLBlogs homepage, so hopefully you saw the road trip inside story from the Phillies’ John Brazer, some of the best behind-the-scenes of a Major League club you will find anywhere.
Please spread the word about MLBlogs and let’s double the number of blogs in the next month. No matter how many links, it’s always amazing how some people can’t find things one day, and the next they’re in a major daily newspaper or on the radio talking about their blog. 🙂
