MLBTR Reader Blog Rumors
In case you haven’t tried it yet, the MLBTR Reader Blog is a great place to express your opinions on baseball topics not mentioned on MLBTR. It’s also a chance to show off your writing chops and promote your own blog or writing.
Dan Lewis of Armchair GM has a challenge. The premise: using the last 25 years of team history, put together the best possible team using only one player per year and each player only once. You can then use simulators to see how good your lineup really is. Take a look at his Mets roster and Davis21wylie’s Red Sox roster.
BallinJones has a discussion going on Akinori Iwamura – is he the real deal?
DunkinDonuts has an intelligent analysis of Boston’s current Coco Crisp predicament.
Hop over and vote up your favorite postings and comments, and write a few of your own!
Also, if you’re into fantasy baseball, check out some of my most recent posts at RotoAuthority:
The MLBTR Reader Blog is my initial attempt to give our readers a voice, a chance to easily create a blog post on any baseball-related topic and vote up the best ones. I encourage you to check it out, and show off your writing chops if you dare. If you’re good, your posts will make the front page.
A few topics discussed today:
One MLBTR reader describes his experience at Miller Park last night, where the Tribe played their "home opener."
Do you consider it an honor to be beaten with a pillow by Frank Thomas? This reader does.
Did the ESPN announcers jinx Felix Hernandez’s no-hitter because of an East Coast bias? Have your say.
I’d like to try out this concept with an MBLTR flavor. This is your chance to write about trade rumors or signings I may have missed on MLBTR, providing your own analysis. Maybe it’s a sketchy message board rumor that you just want to throw out there. Maybe you’d like to discuss Frank Thomas and pillow fights, even though it’s not exactly a trade rumor. Click here to visit the MLBTR Reader Blog, and contribute today!
You also have the ability to vote up the best stories so that they’ll land on the front page. There’s nothing there yet; we have to get the ball rolling. You can even vote on the comments, too. So hop in, link to something interesting, and show off your writing chops. This is a great place to link to cool blog articles (including your own) or any other interesting baseball stuff. Here is the link again for the MLBTR Reader Blog; I will put it in the sidebar and refer to it here and there assuming it’s active.
Let me know what you think. It’s not quite a message board, but it bridges the gap a little bit. Early returns after a few posts: cool concept, could be a nice complement to the site if we keep it active. I switched to a standard black on white color scheme as it just seemed better. Maybe I can get a banner in there for the title.
