More MLB.com bylines for MLBloggers
If you look through my recent posts, you can see examples of how MLBloggers have been writing MLB.com articles reviewing those awesome DVD sets that come to my desk during the course of a year from MLB Productions upstairs. The latest such example is by Steve Dempsey, author of the My Brewers MLBlog. As part of ongoing, comprehensive and unrivaled coverage of Barry Bonds’ ascension to the top of the all-time home run charts (coverage that actually is more than five years in the making, with special areas for every milestone longball), Steve’s story takes a look at Baseball’s Most Unbreakable Feats and examines those magical records that seem unlikeliest to fall. I don’t have Photoshop handy at the moment so no screengrab, but as of this writing (4:19 pm ET on 8/10), it is part of the #3 panel on the mediawall of our MLB.com homepage, as a link in the Bonds/Hall of Fame Exhibit package. Steve’s story goes hand-in-hand with that of MLB.com Cardinals beat writer Matthew Leach, another MLBlogger. Next up: Carl Shimkin‘s review of the Yankees 1977 World Series Collector’s Edition DVD Set. Look for it later next week on Yankees.com and perhaps MLB.com’s homepage. There also is a Cubs DVD review outstanding, just waiting to land in my inbox from the assigned MLBlogger so it can be scheduled on Cubs.com. Once again, the tradeoff is an MLB.com byline and keeping the product, and we at MLB.com (and baseball fans) get content from writers in the MLBlogs community. I will let you all know whenever I receive any more new releases from Productions.
