Around the Sphere bills itself as "The original Angels fan web site", and it is celebrating its 10th anniversary by now owning the No. 1 fan MLBlog. According to site traffic data I just looked over, Stephen C. Smith’s blog focused on the Angels’ farm system came in seventh overall in this community for the period from Feb. 1-29, with Zach Hample’s The Baseball Collector the other fan blog (ninth overall) to crack the top 10. It is a great example of how existing site owners can use MLBlogs to further supplement and market their home. Our friend Jamey Newberg always has done a nice job of that as well with The Newberg Report (22nd overall), which is added ammo for his Newberg Report site that always has been must-reading for people around the Rangers organization and families of Rangers prospects. The dominating No. 1 on the list for February was the one maintained by Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch — Bombers Beat. A brand-new MBLlogger at I think i saw thinks the Red Sox will finish ahead of the Yankees on top of the 2008 AL East standings. But if Hank Steinbrenner needed further evidence in what he said about the Red Sox over the past few days (nice to see The Rivalry on fire again), then he would have it by seeing how far that Yankees blog is in front of any Boston blog (we have tons of Boston blogs) or any other blog here. Many thanks to Bryan for going above and beyond — there’s plenty of work already required of an beat writer — to deliver a constantly high-impact MLBlog with a huge audience.

Stay tuned: We’re working on some hot and bigtime changes to our world of blogging here and hope to start introducing things by around the start of the season. Will shout when it’s close.



Top Ten, baby! I suspect my numbers will increase a whole lot once I get my snagging underway.
