Postseason MLBlogs Update
First of all, we have to wish a speedy recovery to our first known MLBlogger Victory Celebraton Casualty. Be sure to leave your get-well wishes to Becca, known to everyone here as the Bullpen Baker! . . .
Cliffy is Iffy, but Barry Zito, Nate Robertson and John Rodriguez will keep blogging through the LCS. And David Wright always comes through with an entry now and then. We’ll know more on Floyd’s bloggin status Tuesday, depending on whether he’s on the NLCS roster.
My MLB.com colleague Ian Browne will handle the ALCS blog, and I will switch leagues and blog the NLCS. Be sure to leave lots of comment love like you did on my ALDS blog, and I will have more videos, pics and text entries from NYC and St. Louis to post.
That’s the lowdown on the blogdown this week as part of our overall worldseries.com postseason coverage.
It’s great to see so many new MLBlogs created during this postseason as the overall profile obviously has been raised around MLB.com and playoff club sites. Just added everyone to the MLBlogs Active Roster — be sure to browse there to find people with likeminded interests! . . .
Our buddy Tommy Lasorda, the first-ever MLBlogger, has just added the link to Boo-Hoo E-Cards on his blog. Now there are four more team fan bases to send those to. . . .
Blogging the Tigers-Yanks ALDS was my first experience with uploading videos from a Canon Powershot, and I have to say it’s pretty fun and easy as I’ve seen on some other MLBlogs here. It was tough the first night in the bowels of Yankee Stadium because of intermittent wireless connectivity, so the YouTube upload took forever…but it got easier. Basically you just set the camera on video, point and press, then press the snap button again to end the video. Then it uploads as an AVI file the same way as jpegs. We obviously have reams and reams of high-end video content at MLB.com, so my v-logging is just a little different perspective to help show fans what they can do through MLBlogs. . . .
This date in baseball history, 10 years ago: Jeffrey Maier reaches down and robs right fielder Tony Tarasco of a catch for a Derek Jeter home run in the ALCS.
