Check out my take on Xander Bogaerts and the Boston Red sox. http://rsmlb.wordpress.com/

Congratulations to everyone who made the lists this month and best wishes to all of those who are almost there! Even in the middle of what has been, to say the least, a trying season for my team, at least there is MLBlogs to help keep the baseball season fun.
Many thanks to everyone who continues to read my blog.

I, absotively/posilutely, L-O-V-E Rattler Radio with host Chris Mehring!! Chris takes the “bore” out of boring. I have listened to many stations and have read many blogs…Mr. Mehring is top-notch. He knows baseball, and he knows what he sees, opposed to just looking at numbers. He is so fun to listen to and to follow. His excitement and exuberance transcend the airwaves. Listening to him and following his Rattler Radio blog is the next best thing to being there. I count on him…I rely on him…I appreciate him. Go T-Ratts!!!

We are so honored to be on this list again–so many great blogs, so little time to read them all, but wish we could!

MLBlogs without a Renagade and a Ranter? It’s been an interesting run for the Rockpile Rant. Top 10 for over 4 years and 16th this past month. Life is pulling me in different directions right now and I’m just along for the ride. Not hanging up my keyboard for good, just unplugging it for a while as I take care of other business. It’s getting hard to keep up with all of the MLB Pro Picture blogs that have much better access to players than I do. Just remember who was the original was, starting with a POS camera and working my way up to professional pictures and viral videos that circle the globe.Good luck to you Renegade! Good luck to all of you in your blogging endeavors…”D” the Ranter.

Congrats and thank you to all on the list. This is turning out to be a fun season so far. The 2013 Baseball Trip is in the books, and all the posts and pics are finally up! Enjoy!

Thank you everyone for visiting The Cub Den! It’s been a learning season for sure with the Cubs but they’ve been exciting and they keep it interesting and fun!

Making the top 10 just got easier people.
1 less blogger in your path to the top.
From this month forward someone else can be on the heels of the Baseball Collector making him nervous and posting often. Go get ‘em people.
Do not charge from the dugouts, but fight the good fight and post awesome balls of wit and stats that scream as they reach the fences and into someone’s glove or hands. Life gave me a few lemons and I decided to make meringue and beat my way out the door.
Besides, time to pass the torch and let someone else see the sunrise from the top. Loved this site, loved my followers, loved this game beyond your imagination.
Take me out Coach, I’m ready for the showers.

Wow, Nice to be back on the list. Was getting worried! Nice job to everyone who made and/or moved up this month.

Finally made it to the top 10! Thanks for reading and keep up the awesome work… enjoying Three Up, Three Down, The Ballpark Guide, and Observing Baseball most especially!

I’m…speechless. Man, going from #47 to #14 is so great. Hope I crack the top ten sometime in the future.

Love connecting with everyone here each month. I wanted to share my latest post here, since it appeals to a very wide audience. I recently interviewed Matt Stairs on my podcast, The Dugout. Since he played for 13 teams, I figured there would be more than a few of you interested: http://thebluejaysdugout.com/2013/06/10/mlb-world-series-champion-matt-stairs/

Thanks again to all from Head First Slide Productions!

I was looking in the wrong list initially and couldn’t find http://www.9inningknowitall.com and it scared me a little, but when I finally realized my mistake and found the blog I little sigh of relief. I love seeing the blog on this list each month. Starting to move our way back up again. We had a great guest blog from the NCAA D-3 World Series MVP today and yesterday.
