Greetings from Boston! Who do you like, Cardinals or Red Sox? What are the matchup edges in this rare matchup of best records by league? What are you looking forward to? It all starts Wednesday night on FOX.
This is the 18th one I’ve worked, and Joe Carter’s HR landing in front of me in ’93 probably ranks on top. How about your best WS memory, in person or broadcast? Please leave comments here with Permalink to your Fall Classic posts so we can promote.
First of all, to all my fans, I hope you're digging See You Tonight. We've been working on this for over a year now, putting this thing together, so I'm glad it's finally out there for people to hear other than myself and the truck. It's fun and hopefully you're enjoying it.
You know how much I like baseball, so it was a treat today to spend time at Major League Baseball Advanced Media's headquarters inside of Chelsea Market in New York City.
I am a neophyte when it comes to blogging, but I'm a quick learner and I promise improvement. In this forum, I am determined to offer a unique perspective on the philanthropic ventures of professional athletes. Little happens on the field without documentation by 100 140-character snippets, 50 Facebook pages, 20 radio stations, 10 broadcasters, and 5 major networks. Off the field however, player notes are dominated by largely disparaging remarks.
What am I waiting for? Mark Newman really made me think about this post at http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com/2013/08/09/what-are-you-waiting-for/.
I'm waiting for the Brewer's miserable year to end! :)
I'm waiting for the Brewers to surpass the Cubs in the standings...THE CUBS for God's sake!!!!! I'm waiting to view another sausage race, screaming my lungs out for Polish.
I'm waiting to feel the intensity of a crowded Miller Park, no matter how many injuries we endured or how horrific we've been playing.
If you'll recall, a couple of weeks ago, I wrote that MLB.com's hit game show, "Bucks on the Pond," powered by Ford, was slated to visit Miller Park.
"Bucks," hosted by Jeremy Brisiel, has been to more than half of all Major League ballparks giving fans a chance to walk away with some cash by interacting with MLB.com's studio through the magic of technology in conjunction with game action inside.
Got a great idea for you bloggers here at MLB.com. Want to interview a Major Leaguer straight from the comfort of your own computer, type his response to your question while he talks to you, and then immediately post it on your blog and share it across your social media? Get involved with our MLB.com Edward Jones Chatting Cage.
It’s made for fans like you. We have Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the cage at 2:30 p.m. ET today at our MLB.com studios in New York, and that’s a great time to try it out for yourself. The blog end of it is what puts the icing on the cake. You even get to embed the video of yourself interviewing the player.
For example, check out this video of “Matt from Cincinnati” interviewing “Mat (Latos) from Cincinnati):
The fan is sitting at his computer’s webcam talking to Latos. Take it one step further, and he could be typing while Latos is talking, and then immediately post his own transcript after the conversation. Then when we post the video that day on MLB.com, he could embed the clip and it makes a kickass post. Guaranteed that if you do that and leave the Permalink here on the community blog, we will promote it across MLB.com Blogs. In fact, first one to do it up right gets the #1 panel spot on http://MLB.com/blogs.
Can’t guarantee you will get to ask a player a question, as others here at MLB.com handle the cage when the players stop by, but be ready to go for it.
Here’s a roundup of some of our newer PRO posts within the Major League Baseball family. Feel free to add your own Permalink to your latest post in the comments here.

I wanted to write a quick post wishing everyone a happy mother's day. Today is a very special day after all and all the amazing women out there who have cared for a child, human or otherwise, deserve a whole lot of love.
That being said, when I texted all of my mom friends today, much to my surprise, I received a bunch of "You too's!" This really got me thinking.
One of the coolest things about being a baseball fan is knowing your All-Star Game is light years better than any other sport’s…and that it matters. The National League has capitalized on three straight All-Star victories.
I spent Tuesday at Citi Field, partly for the big Clayton Kershaw-Jon Niese matchup and also to do some advance work on the All-Star Week stuff that is coming there for this summer. Here is my ballot launch story on MLB.com and here is the 2013 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot sponsored by freecreditscore.com.
Just wanted to share some Instagrams I posted in the meantime, and making sure you are all set to blog like crazy now that the All-Star ballot is out. Make sure you leave comments here with your full URL and tell us to come and see how you use up those earliest votes, and we’ll promote some of them.
