Around the Sphere
Congratulations to longtime Cubs MLBlogger Paul Dzien, the proprietor of Crawly’s Cubs. He just became the latest in a long and growing line of MLBloggers who also have MLB.com bylines! Above is the screenshot of the current panel on the Cubs.com mediawall. No. 2 panel placement, especially in September with the Cubs on top, is pretty heady stuff. Paul reviewed the Cubs Legends DVD set, as other MLBloggers have done for various DVDs sent to me by MLB Productions on the floor above us here at our Manhattan HQ. (Asking for more!) Paul’s tagline links to his MLBlog. It’s also prominent on MLB Productions‘ site, which is a part of MLB.com (you can find Zoe Rice’s Mets DVD article and John Nemo’s Twins DVD article prominently displayed at the top there, too). Just another example of what could happen if you subscribe to MLBlogs; scroll down to see all the other reviews. For those who have asked, we are going to be aggregating all of them on the MLB Productions index page at MLB.com so stay tuned for that to appear.
You’re going to be seeing a lot of new high profile Red Sox blogs soon,
so a warning in advance to all you Yankee bloggers. That’s because one
of the perks of being a candidate for President of Red Sox Nation
is getting your own candidate MLBlog. There already are a handful of
these out there. You’ll see one for all of the 10 finalists once those
are named. Looking forward to seeing if Peter Gammons (in the top 25)
makes the top 10 so he’d become an MLBlogger. Actually there are 26
now, if you include Big Pupi, a dog. Personally, I’m hoping Big Pupi
makes it to the top 10 (I think it will happen based on all the love)
so we can have a dog blogging here. Voting ends Sunday to narrow it down to 10.
I don’t know if any active player can tell a better story than CJ Wilson.
I wrote this story for MLB.com about golden opportunities, and frankly I’m blown away by how many World Series contest prizes there are around our world at BAM. Everywhere you look. It means you have a lot more opportunity to win some big things, and more good blog fodder on entering those!
Congrats to our friend and fellow MLBlogger Alyssa Milano for landing the new role on NBC’s "My Name Is Earl." The attention that Alyssa has brought to MLBlogs because of touch ’em all (cited as one of the best "celebrity blogs" by Entertainment Weekly) has been very appreciated, and it just funnels that much more views to others here as we continue to grow this community.

Welcome to Jessica Robicheaux and her new MLBlog The Cold, Hard Truth. Jessica interned on the Astros beat this summer alongside one of the best baseball beat writers in the business, our own Alyson Footer, and now she has a new way to share her thoughts going forward. We wish her luck in her career and welcome her to the MLBlogosphere.
Everyone get ready for an insane finish to this magical 2007 season. It will already be unmatched as the Year of the Milestone, chock full of (three) no-hitters and guaranteed Hall of Fame plateaus. It’s going to be incredible at the end of this month, and maybe this is the year we get hit with a Monday tiebreaker or two. I was glazed over today by the coin-tossing for scenarios. I still haven’t written off the Rockies, who you might remember that I picked to be in the World Series when I wrote the MLB.com article on Opening Day about all the preseason prognostications at the magazine stand. They are hanging in there and now they have a big home series against the Pads.
