Top 100 MLB.com Blogs

595x416_MLB_Blogs_Top100

Baseball fans aren’t going to forget 2012 any time soon. We saw the debuts of phenomenal young talent, we marveled at historic feats and we held on through truly memorable Postseason moments. Bloggers were there every step of the way, and now is the time to honor those who made the annual Top 100 MLB.com Blogs list. Once again the Hot Stove/Trade Buzz two-headed monster finished as the overall most-visited MLB.com Blog, powered by the only network of 30 traveling beat reporters, with Better Off Red finishing off a very impressive season in second place in the PRO category. The Baseball Collector has bragging rights again among Fan blogs, with the reborn and resurgent Rays Renegade right behind. Carrie Muskat held off Jason Beck to grab top honors among the MLB.com Beat Writers.

Congratulations to everyone who made the Top 100! If you’re on the list, make sure you add your Top 100 MLB.com Blogs badge to your sidebar, with the link to this post. Here are the Latest Leaders ranked by page views from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2012:
