Please welcome Larry Dierker to the MLB.com/blogs community. He just saved his first post at Dierk’s Dugout. The longtime Astros manager and pitcher commands a lot of respect among baseball fans and especially folks around Houston. See what he has to say about the Astros’ 2013 move to the AL West. Please be sure to leave Dierk some comments and questions so he can comment back. He’s using the WordPress.com Dashboard just like you and me, and so does fellow former pitcher Jim Kaat.
Two words: Hot Stove. It is the same year-round blog at mlb.mlblogs.com that is maintained by MLB.com reporters, and it heats up before the Trade Deadline and throughout the Hot Stove season. This is the best source of buzz, from the only network of 30 traveling MLB club beat reporters — plus an army of other contributors from around MLB.com. Please be sure to follow it by entering your email. Tracker is here.
Alden Gonzalez sits right next to me here at the Major League Baseball Advanced Media HQ in Manhattan, and I can personally attest that he just hit “Publish” on a post about his conversation with Jerry Reinsdorf. See what the White Sox owner has to say about realignment and playoffs, and please be sure you are subscribed as a regular follower of Alden’s Gonzo and ‘The Show’ — always good insights.
