Latest Leaders – August 2009

Latest Leaders in the MLBlogs Network by pageview, for the month of August 2009.

Baseball season is in its stretch run, and like the teams, MLBloggers are looking to raise their games. The four MLBlogs “division leaders” from last month were able to hold on to their leads, though there are challengers looking to unseat them.

Matt Holliday is now hot on the heels of Reed Johnson and Rick Ankiel for top honors among Major Leaguers, while PRO BLOGS Inside the Dodgers and The Baseball Collector blog are right there in the mix with the ever-popular SNY and YES blogs. T.R. Sullivan’s Postcards from Elysian Fields jumped up two spots to second among the beat writer blogs, just behind Bowman’s Blog.

For the fans, Jane Heller’s Confessions of a She-Fan remained in the top spot, with Red State Blue State right there. The big movers were Rockpile Rant and Latest Leaders newcomer Live, Eat, and Breathe Yankees.

Congratulations to everyone on the list!

FAN MLBLOGS

Kudos to The ‘Burgh Blues on quantum leap from 30th to sixth — please post a comment below with details of how you optimized your results and that might help others. Big Pupi would be a lot higher if he’d try a Big Pupi Cam like the Shiba Imu Monster Puppy Cam. Nice offseason blogging by Darion at Braves World, who debuts here at No. 43.

This week’s contest: Comment below with the 12 MLBlogs URLs depicted here with these thumbnails in the panel we used this past week on the MLBlogs.com homepage. First one to correctly comment with all 12 gets some extra link action here. How closely do YOU follow other MLBlogs? Get to know your fellow fans!

Update from us at MLBAM: floridamarlins.com is now marlins.com — in case that affects anyone out there. You cannot legally put this logo below or any MLB mark/logo on a digital page of any kind whatsoever unless it’s here within MLBlogs (ie not on myspace/facebook/ANYwhere) or one of our MLBAM-operated sites…but this is the brand-new look for your knowledge. Feel free to comment here with URL anytime you ever see such violations and they can be flagged by our Legal. We are gradually knocking them off one at a time until one day hopefully every domain is simply nickname.com.

The Pulse vs. Inside the Dodgers

CHICAGO — Apologies for lack of entries here this week. As you may have noticed, I’ve been writing our daily overview piece for the MLB.com homepage and am currently at Wrigley with a morning flight to LAX and high probability for an all-nighter. I did want to share this:

Just chatted with Josh Rawitch in the Dodgers’ dugout during BP, and he is issuing a friendly challenge to Mark DeRosa. Josh noticed that my “Latest Leaders” traffic rankings here last week showed DeRosa’s The Pulse MLBlog No. 1 overall, followed closely at No. 2 by Josh’s Inside the Dodgers.

“I should go tell him he has a challenge for No. 1,” Josh said. I told him that DeRosa provided a pretty good NLDS start to his blog by hitting a two-run homer and then blogging about it. (Shane Victorino, too.) But Josh has a good formula all his own. No matter what he feels like posting about, he always can be the first person anywhere to post the Dodgers’ starting lineup each day, and that has been a fundamental in his postings — but only a small piece of why it’s such a great community. . . .

Making sure everyone here has seen all eight of our MLB.com postseason player blogs:

Brian Anderson (White Sox) – http://banderson.mlblogs.com

Ryan Braun (Brewers) – http://ryanbraun.mlblogs.com

Mark DeRosa (Cubs) – http://markderosa.mlblogs.com

Jacoby Ellsbury (Red Sox) – http://jacobyellsbury.mlblogs.com

Andre Ethier (Dodgers) – http://diningwithdre.mlblogs.com

Torii Hunter (Angels) – http://toriihunter.mlblogs.com

Carlos Pena (Rays) – http://carlospena.mlblogs.com

Shane Victorino (Phillies) – http://shanevictorino.mlblogs.com

Not postseason, but just updated: http://bengiemolina.mlblogs.com

They’re going to amass some amazing traffic numbers, so be sure and leave them comments and include your full URL so that you engage a big baseball crowd. Then hook ‘em.

One interesting thing about this lineup is that we now have created an amazing THREE Brian Anderson MLBlogs. The first one was Brian Anderson the former hurler, who maintained Confessions of a Left-hander. I never deleted it after he stopped due to Tommy John surgery, mainly because he was our first-ever player MLBlogger. I think that’s kind of historic in a cool way, so that’s why it hasn’t been scraped and he has the actual “name” URL. The second one is by our friend Brian Anderson the Brewers’ broadcaster. So we actually have two Brian Andersons blogging with their own involvement in this postseason.

Will try to get an updated Latest Leaders but might not happen this week. I have lots more Cub fans to interview.   :)

Check out Google’s new blog-search page. http://blogsearch.google.com — and here is what you get if you search for “MLBlogs”. Excellent representation.

Welcome to Pheeling Optimistic!

Latest MLBlog Rankings

Congrats to our friend Zoë Rice, the most-visited fan MLBlogger so far this season.

Here’s the tough news to swallow: Almost all of you have been outblogged by a dog.

Since we relaunched this community on Opening Day, here is the ranking:

TOP 10 FAN MLBLOGS

  1. Pick Me Up Some Mets!
  2. FutureAngels.com
  3. Big Pupi – Baseball Dog Blogger
  4. The Brewer Nation
  5. Red State Blue State
  6. Prince of New York
  7. Bleeding Pinstripes
  8. Yankees Chick
  9. Baseball Cleats & Shoes
  10. It’s a Kind of a Family. It’s a Kind of Insanity.

TOP 10 OVERALL MLBLOGS:

  1. Inside the Dodgers
  2. Trade Talk
  3. Bombers Beat
  4. Beck’s Blog
  5. The Pulse (Mark Derosa)
  6. The Baseball Collector
  7. CastroTurf
  8. Frenchy’s Forum (Jeff Francoeur)
  9. Obviously, You’re Not a Golfer
  10. Inside the White Sox

The phenom on the list is Trade Talk. We launched it a little over a week ago and it is about to overtake Josh’s popular “Inside the Dodgers” for most traffic in the entire season. Maintained on a constant basis by our 30 MLB.com beat writers, it is showing up on blogrolls all over as the most legit source for trade discussion leading up to the July 31 deadline.

Why is The Baseball Collector included in the latter group? Zack was working for us at MLBAM when he started blogging. Because his was one of the “founding blogs” whose pages were launched in that 24-hour span that MLBlogs was born in April 2005 — in order, Tommy, Mayo, Murray, Sterno, Sutton and Zack — he is keeping the ceremonial MLB PRO BLOGS template reserved for MLBlogs belonging to members of the Major League Baseball family. Through his baseball collecting and widespread publicity, he also has brought to the MLBlogs community a lot of visitors who have found other MLBloggers.

Here’s another really good blog with a passion for collecting baseballs:

Rock Pile Rant…Colorado Rockies

If you want some easy traffic to your blog, leave comments here regularly and always include your full URL as a breadcrumb. We are scheduling our next MLBlogs Network upgrade soon and BY FAR at the top of the list of priorities is helping bloggers find each other. Stay tuned.

Adding the Lou Widget; Welcome to TWIB

Updated 4:50 p.m. ET on Wednesday

Warm MLBlogs welcome to the crew behind the scenes at This Week In Baseball, everyone’s favorite show dating back to the days of Mel Allen. They just launched Behind the TWIB Notes, and if you want to get a feel for it, go there and click on the link to listen to the classic TWIB theme. It’ll put you in a bigtime baseball mood! Leave comments for the crew, share memories of great TWIB highlights past, and be a regular on their blog.

I couldn’t resist adding the Lou Piniella Bobblehead widget to the top of this blog for a daily affirmation, and you might want to consider the same whether you are a Cubs fan or just a baseball nut like the rest of us. It is part of our ongoing Pepsi Clutch Performer of the Month voting campaign. So first of all, you should join the voting there and make yourself eligible for a free trip for two to the 2009 All-Star Game in St. Louis, and you can click “Get the Widget” on that index page if you want to go through each step. Shortcut

To place the widget like I did, click on “Grab” and then click on “Embed”. Copy that embed code and place it at the end of your Blog Description text field under your General Settings. For now, the Link Lists in our Movable Type software do not permit use of widgets as with the previous Typepad app, so that’s one place to position it. You also can simply place it within your text post, clicking on the Edit HTML icon on the far right side of your toolbar over the text field. Piniella will be there to give you a different “affirmation” each day. . . .

Welcome back to Mark DeRosa. The Cubs’ second baseman returned to blogging action over the weekend and has immediately become the No. 1 MLBlog by traffic, just inching past Inside the Dodgers. DeRosa said he will try to do this weekly, and he has invited fans to leave comments with a permanent suggestion for his blog’s title.

Welcome also to Brett Wallace. The Arizona State University standout is blogging from the perspective of a much-scouted prospect leading up to the June Draft. This is the first year we at MLBAM have offered this kind of regular perspective, added to our overall comprehensive Draft coverage at MLB.com.
