Clearly, the rankings are 100% accurate. 🙂
Thanks, everyone, for reading my blog, and thanks, Mark, for everything.

It’s been a fun half so far, and hoping the second half of the season will be even more exciting. Congrats to everyone on the first half list.

Mark, by “Jack” I mean the Latest Leader fiasco last January when the Number 1 blogger had 2000 hits for the month. I called you on it and you fixed it. That would be the reason for me questioning it this time. Thanks for the response…”D”

Congrats everyone.
Come and see a 12 year old’s view on all things baseball.

Mark…So I’ve pondered this and it still doesn’t add up. The Rant has been in the Top Ten this whole year. Then when Mid-Year rankings come out I drop out of the Top 10 to #11, passed up by great blogs who have only made the top ten once. Just doesn’t add up to me and I’ve seen you guys totally jack this Latest Leader board rankings up before. Just call’n it as I see it…Any explanation?..Thanks…”D”.

Rankings are correct based on your total page views since Opening Day tracked by Omniture at MLBAM. I don’t know what you are talking about regarding “jack”.

What a cool idea! Thanks for posting first half rankings. And thank you very much for the shout out on the front page after the ASG. That was a nice surprise to see as I was heading out for vacation.🙂
This is turning into quite a season and I can’t wait to read what everyone blogs in the 2nd half!
