Latest Leaders – January 2013

Latest Leaders logoBaseball is just days away now, and the excitement is building as more and more new blogs are created here on the best blogging platform in the sport. Our first monthly Latest Leaders of 2013 has the usual mix of proven veterans and promising newcomers. The biggest news has to be the Brewers’ John & Cait…Plus Nine dethroning the Hot Stove traffic magnet for the overall top spot, with Jamie Ramsey’s Better Off Red just behind. Evan Vogel cracked the FAN Top 10 in December and now his blog The Baseball Haven is up to No. 5, so watch out there. Carrie Muskat is still in command on the list of  MLB.com beat reporters, regardless of the fortunes of the Cubs team she covers. Congratulations to everyone who made the list, and one proven tip to get on the next month’s list is to leave comments on these blogs and include your full URL so they can see your new posts.

Well, thank you RedsFan22, I hope we’d be lucky enough to make a list like this. Thanks for reading!

You guys have a great list here but there should be an up and coming section cause these kids are new but they write solid stuff most of the time. http://4fansports.com/2013/02/21/is-it-really-worth-it/

I play baseball, and I’m very excited for this upcoming season. I think keeping up with this blog will keep me updated. Hopefully, the Yankees will overcome their loses and win another World Series.

Figured it wouldn’t hurt to leave the link ;)

I’m excited to join the MLB blogging family! Just getting my blog finished, and clips from my podcast uploaded. Would love feedback from anyone willing to share :)

Thanks to everyone who visited my site. It is amazing considering that I started the blog recently.

Mark,
Thank you for the panel of all the Rays current blogs including the Rays Radio crew and the Bowling Green Hot Roda blog. From MLB to the minors, the Rays bloggers are starting to be noticed thanks to you and the MLBlogs community.

If you’re a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays please check out my newly minted blog The Blue Jays Way. And congrats to those who made the Top 50 and may you all have continued success in the future!

All the way up to 38th. Battling Bucs is doing very well. Hopefully I’ll climb a few more spots as the season goes along. Thank you to everyone who has checked out my blog.

Congrats to all that have made it. Hopefully I will see my blog up there sometime this year.

This is the first time I have made the list, but WOW! Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog over the past month! I thought I would be in between 40-50, but then I saw I was at #24. I was really surprised! I’m proud to be mentioned on the same list as all the great bloggers who are also on the list. Thanks for stopping by APieceofTheGame!

Thank you to everyone who continued to check in with my blog, even as I took a longer than intended January “offseason”. Congratulations to everyone who made the list! I’m going to have a lot of fun checking out the new and new to me blogs. Baseball season is just around the corner and I can’t wait to see what you all have to say.

Note that my twitter acct got hacked. I already changed my password. If you get a DM that says “Did you see this pic of you? lol ” then a link. Don’t click on the link and re-enter your username and password. Sorry if anyone clicked on that. I have a new phone and thought my phone was acting up.

Wow I feel so honored! I was only active for 11 days in January. Look for big things over at CardinalsFarm.

I’m still amazed that my blog has been able to stay so high but I know a large part of that is thanks to my team of writers. What do you get when you mix a retired minor league player, an official scorekeeper, a former clubhouse attendant, an autograph fanatic, and a social media guru addicted to baseball….9 Inning Know It All
