MLBlogs Network Updates

Thanks for your patience during the difficulties at the Create Links stage within the Link List area of the new Movable Type app. That appears to have been resolved based on feedback of participating MLBloggers who were experiencing problems there, primarily using IE6. Firefox is recommended if you have the option. Please continue reporting here with any issues involving your software as we continue refinements and plan next upgrades.

CALL FOR CONTENT: If you have either PS3, PS2 or PSP system/devices for video games, I am sitting here with three versions of MLB ’08 The Show on my desk and want to overnight them to any MLBlogger(s) who would like an MLB.com byline and a free game. I only need a 200-word review on each, so please SEND AN EMAIL HERE to volunteer. We already have MLBlogger reviews “in the can” for the MLB2K8 game on Wii, PS3 and Xbox, and to make it a total MLB.com package I just need to put together the MLB ’08 The Show review page. Step right up and you can have an MLB.com byline for your resume if you’re a writer.

David Mickey Evans, famed director of The Sandlot classic baseball movie, is an MLBlogger and he just posted about his latest film The Final Season being released now on DVD. Leave him a comment and tell him what you think of the movie.

Bengie.pngPlease welcome our newest blogging player, Giants catcher Bengie Molina. He asked the club if he could get a blog started, and now he not only has one, but two. Bengie, the oldest of the three MLB-catching, ring-owning Molina brothers (also Jose and Yadier), will be blogging in an English-language MLBlog and one that is also posted in Spanish for sfgigantescom.

Meanwhile, Tommy Lasorda is the master storyteller in baseball. He just told another that everyone should know about and pass around.

It’s fitting that we are talking about the legendary former Dodgers manager and current team exec, because Tuesday is Jackie Robinson Day around the game. Tommy got this whole MLBlogs thing started three years ago by saving the very first MLBlog entry as an ode to his former Dodger teammate and late friend who broke baseball’s color line.

Please leave Tommy your comments, as he’s the trailblazer here, and also a welcome note for that catcher on his rival club up the coast. Did you see that Tommy also is going to RECEIVE the Pope this week? And a dinner that night with the President and First Lady in the White House.

Congrats to MLBlogs’ own Zack Hample, who just demolished his own record of baseball snaggage at new Nationals Park. Ran into him on the subway Saturday in NYC and I kept it secret until he could blog about it. Amazing how this guy now has a legion of snagroupies.

Why aren`t we getting any sound…Not on regular FNS or FNDHD? It is 11:05 PM in Saginaw MI.

Hey, i’ve been working hard on my blog, please make it the featured blog of tommorow: metsmasterpiece.mlblogs.com

UPDATE…

The deleted list has disappeared (yea!) but still no luck calling up the link list to edit. By the way, now using Firefox on a PC, so my Mac theory is shot.

Mark,
I’m still having major link problems. I deleted one link list that still shows up on the blog and the new list I added won’t let me add or delete anything on it. (Using Firefox on a Mac.)

I think that Lasorda would make a good pope, he has the look.

Jonathan, we have been updating/emailing/addressing. I’ll email you separately to see why you are still having isolated problem with this. Thanks.

Mark

Mark I am still having problems adding new links to my site, i am also wondering where all my old links went. Is there someone @ MLB blogs who can address this issue. I have emailed and posted on this site and as of yet no response on the specifics of this problem???

Hey, Mark,

I’m so impressed with how MLBlogs is growing. It’s like a huge, extended family now! And I’ve always wanted a few extra brothers, sisters, uncles, etc. around.

Three cheers for everyone!

Bengie, My family is sooo happy to watch you catching for the GIANTS, 3 years will be too short of a time for you to stay.. it will be great if you can stay playing for the GIANTS . You are one of the best catcher there is in the MLB. Keep up the good job you’re doing especially helping the young players who look up to you….I hope the Giants keeps on winning and more power to you.

Noni, glad you are adapting and just shout if you have any questions. And I’m with you, great to see Stats start to matter and just settle into a baseball groove here, wondering if the Cards are for real, etc. Zack: see above.

Mark-

It’s been a BUSY week for me, and I just caught up on everything you’ve posted recently here in the MLBlogosphere. Thanks for the updates. Thanks for addressing my questions. Much appreciated.

Last night, I posted my longest blog entry ever, and I encourage everyone here to check it out. I won’t tell you how many words it is because that’ll scare people, but for those who don’t have time to read, give a click below and at least check out the photographs. I had the best game of my life at Nationals Park…

I have finally figured out how to maneuvre my way around the new blog.
I’m not too good at it, but I’m getting better. Had a little trouble at first but it’s new.
Hope all is well with you, I am loving having baseball season back!
Noni
