More DVDs for MLBloggers to review

redsoxessentialgamesdvd.jpgMy colleagues in MLB Productions one floor above me here in our Manhattan HQ just sent me down an interoffice envelope stuffed with five unbelievable DVD sets. The message is this: MLB Productions really likes you MLBloggers. We are definitely onto something with this year-long “experiment” of giving MLB.com bylines to MLBloggers.

So here is the latest call for content. Once again, this only applies to people who maintain MLBlogs, because we link to those from the tagline of your MLB.com article. The DVD or DVD sets will each be overnighted to the individuals who volunteer by emailing me with your mailing address…and once again you will have the best chance if you are a fan of the team that is that DVD’s subject.

Once you have one of these, please email me a review of the merchandise within the week. I will schedule content display for consideration on that particular team’s homepage, and you will have the kind of audience size that most writers — traditional or new media — dream about.

Here are the items I need you to review, so step right up:

The Boston Red Sox Essential Games of Fenway Park (6-DVD set in collector’s tin)

The New York Mets Essential Games of Shea Stadium (6-DVD set in collector’s tin)

Shea Goodbye: 45 Years of Amazin’ (hosted by Matthew Broderick and featuring footage of the greatest Mets moments at home)

Yankee Stadium: Baseball’s Cathedral (2-DVD set, exclusive commemorative bronze coin and replica ticket inside)

Red Sox Memories: The Greatest Moments in Boston Red Sox History (features Cy Young, Ted Williams, Carlton Fisk, Pedro Martinez, David Ortiz and many more)

Plus, I am still looking for a D-Backs fan who wants to review:
2001 World Series Arizona Diamondbacks Collector’s Edition DVD Set

The total retail value of these is in the $100s. As always, you get to own the product and get to add an MLB.com byline to your resume if the story works out. It keeps the credibility momentum going for blogging. It helps MLB Productions market their awesome products, and the MLB.com Shop folks appreciate business like anyone else today. Most importantly, it gives a widespread audience of your like-minded fans something they can appreciate, recommended by someone with whom they can identify through shared experience. That’s a lot of wins for one little experiment we started last year! Let’s keep it going…

Hey Mark,

I’m also checking to see if you received my email. I’m not trying to be pushy.

Oh, what the heck, I AM being pushy. Read my email! Read my email!

Thanks,

Arizona Via Slough, MLB.Com is the best site on the Internet. The finest place to find news on your favorite Major League Baseball organization is directly from the team and the team’s official blog on MLBlogs. Thus, MLB.Com cannot compare to other news sites that rely on journalists and reporters, such as ESPN.Com.Mark, I think that it’s great that you are giving MLBloggers an opportunity to contribute directly to Major League Baseball. It’s the best way to bring the fans closer to their favorite teams.

Not at all! Actually of all the things I’m known to exaggerate that is definitely not one of them. Far and away the pioneer leader of any sports/entertainment related sites, and I think it’s the best of any else IMHO. Have a nice day.

“the best website on the internet”? Surely a slight exaggeration?

Paul, I appreciate the input but sorry, no. We have an army of producers who manage the news on the best website on the Internet, MLB.com. The panel on MLBlogs.com is to showcase cool things you can find in the MLBlogosphere. Thanks as always for blogging!
