Latest Leaders – October 2012

Latest Leaders logoIt was an eventful October, with the Giants claiming their second World Series title in three years to cap off another memorable Postseason. Your October 2012 Latest Leaders came up big in the clutch as well. It was fitting that SF Giants Photos topped the Pro Blogs, while Tigers beat writer Jason Beck claimed bragging rights in the MLB.com Beat Writer Division. MLB.com Blogs mainstay Red State Blue State bowed out in style with yet another strong showing, while the next generation of blogs like Giants Fan Carm and Punky G. made their debuts.

Blogging Matt Cain’s Perfect Game

Congrats to Matt Cain of the Giants for throwing the 22nd Perfect Game in Major League Baseball history. You can easily embed the MLB.com video of the masterpiece on your blog, to go with any posts about the game.

Just go here and then click Embed and paste that code into your WordPress.com dashboard text field.

The most perfect blog post of all may have just been saved by Giants outfielder Gregor Blanco. His unreal diving catch toward the warning track preserved the gem, and you’ll want to see what he says in White Shark. Blanco invites your comments there and will be answering questions in future posts, so hit him up! This is the video he embedded the morning after history happened at AT&T Park:

Fan “CHP” just commented on the White Shark’s blog entry:

“You brought me to your blog and this amazing post. This post led me, in my continuing post game Giants-haze, to not stop reading until I had finished everything you had written since becoming a Giant. You are amazingly well spoken, smart, and seem to be a pretty awesome person.”

One of our most popular PRO blogs here at MLB.com Blogs is SF Giants Photos, and props to the crew there for such thorough photo coverage of Cain’s perfecto. Take a look at their shots and leave comments and share their post.

This just in from SFDiamondGirl: “I just put up my post about the perfect game: http://sfdiamondgirl.mlblogs.com/2012/06/14/a-black-and-white-world-and-a-technicolor-baseball-game/. Incredibly happy for Matt Cain and it’s been an amazing 24 hours here in San Francisco – very exciting to put it all into words.”

More Splash Hits is one of our Latest Leaders in the FAN category and just posted about it, with videos.

Are all these no-hitters and perfect games in recent times a good thing? Keith Olbermann isn’t so sure. And this Astros fans tells you what it feels like to be no-hit.

Just got this comment from Russel at Wrigley Regular, which ranked 43rd in our May Latest Leaders: “Great game from Cain last night. The 5th Perfecto in the last 3 years. Is there a reason why? I have my opinion and you can read it here: http://wrigleyregular.mlblogs.com/2012/06/14/why-are-they-perfect/

Feel free to add comments here with your full URL if you are blogging about that game. Or just let us know what you are blogging about regarding any baseball topic.

You can also search WordPress.com for “Matt Cain” and you will come up with this list of fellow baseball bloggers like Girls are the New Boys or Your Cousin Vinnie. Make sure you use an MLB theme if you want to be tracked for the monthly Latest Leaders.

TRAFFIC TIP: Make sure you enable your viewers to share your posts in every way you want. In your WP Dashboard, go to Settings –> Sharing and then drag-and-drop all the icons like Twitter and FB and then save. That way other baseball fans can spread your blog posts everywhere. Default setting probably won’t do you much good.
