President of Red Sox Nation candidates
First of all, Happy 80th Birthday to our friend Tommy Lasorda on this day. Tommy is the trailblazer here, having saved the first-ever MLBlog post on April 18, 2005. If you are wondering how to find his first post with so much time in between, then here’s a tip you need to know. Just click the title at the top of any MLBlog. Then, in the URL field, add the following to the end of that address that you see: /archives.html
So here are the campaign blogs that have been populated so far for President of Red Sox Nation, and more are on the way from the likes of Peter Gammons and Jerry Remy. No matter which team you root for, you have to like a Doris Kearns Goodwin joining the MLBlogosphere.
More to come. In the meantime, enjoy Yankees @ Red Sox. It should be quite a weekend around Fenway, not to mention anywhere that an NL Central, NL West and NL Wild Card candidate is campaigning. Don’t forget to try out the brand-new MLB.com Chat, which should be an absolute zoo with The Rivalry under way again. Can you imagine separating Yankee and Red Sox fans who are in the same cutting-edge chat rooms? (See below.) Relax, anyone can just use the Ignore option and the loudmouth next to you is muted. Looking forward to the weekend blogs!
PS: Assuming you could have any player blog this October who is on a clinching team, who would you want? Of course, we don’t know the clinching teams yet, but it’s never too early to throw out some desirable bloggers for those teams in the running…and explain why. Thanks!
