Around the Sphere
Welcome to a couple of familiar television friends here at MLBlogs. Tonight we just launched the MLB Network‘s MLBlog. Content will be posted by the talent you know and love at the Network’s awesome Studio 3 and Studio 42 worlds for the “MLB Tonight” show. It will be a natural companion to your regular viewing of the network that blew away the record for largest launch in cable television history. If you love MLB Network, you’ll love their blog. Talk to them!
That launch follows the recent startup of the TBS Hot Corner MLBlog, and the same thing applies there. Good chance that you already are enjoying the insights of studio talent such as Chip Caray and Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley. Keep an eye on that blog throughout the TBS coverage this postseason, and interact with the broadcasters.
Thanks to everyone who voted for us in the OMMA Awards. Headed there shortly, let’s see if we bring you back any hardware. Speaking of hardware, be sure you are voting for awards like the Hank Aaron Award and Roberto Clemente Award on MLB.com. Besides doing your duty as a baseball fan, it’s a way to win one of those World Series trips. Someone at MLB.com is going to win them, might as well be a fan like you!
Sorry for the slow posting here, have been busy being @MLB over on Twitter. Thanks to all of you who have followed us there! We are almost at 500,000 followers, and that means it’s time for a 500K Giveaway over there. It will be a big one, too. Join us! Also keep an eye out for our new Twitter MLBlog here, an extension of @MLB.
As you’ve no doubt noticed, we’re doing the Latest Leaders at about the start of every month now. It’s easier that way, and just give or take a few days in case it’s not on the first. Whether we will do that in the offseason remains to be seen. Definitely will come back with our second annual MLBlogs Top 100, though. Whenever you see one of those graphics around the MLBlogosphere, you know that person’s blog was one of the 100 most viewed in the 2008 calendar year. We gave those out at the end of 2008.
Thanks again for all the great blogging this season! Keep it up! It’s crunchtime…and clinch time!
