#30! and some Manny housekeeping

Hey everyone,

I just want to thank you guys for making me #30 on the fan blogs list in only 4 weeks of writing.  It means a lot.  Again, a special thanks to Julia from Julia’s Rants and Mark from the Blogosphere for doing what they do.  I am realizing very quickly that there is a strong sense of community on MLBlogs and to be honest I think it’s fantastic.  Nothing like baseball to bring people together.  Anyway, I hope everyone continues to enjoy what I do here.

As for the previews, they are almost done.  Only the Dodgers, Padres, and Giants remain.  Today is going to be the Dodgers and as you probably know…Manny still hasn’t signed.

340x.jpgI’ve had enough of the distraction as I’m sure everyone in the baseball world has…especially his prospective Dodger teammates.

Since he has not signed, the Dodgers preview is very difficult to write.  Quite clearly this Dodger team was MUCH better with Manny in the lineup than they were before he was traded there at last year’s deadline.  Having said that, he almost definitely will sign in Los Angeles, it’s just a matter of time.  Therefore, the Dodgers preview that will be up later today will be written as if he’s on the team.  If it so happens that he signs somewhere else, I’ll address the issue then.

Here’s to hoping the insanity ends today and Manny just signs and gets on with playing baseball.

#41!!!

I’m number 41 on MLBlogs fan sites after only 3 weeks!

Obviously a thank you goes out to Mark from http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com, but my biggest thank you must go to Julia from Julia’s Rants.  Putting me on your blogroll an commenting on each and every entry of mine has no doubt helped immensely.  You’re awesome…and that’s saying a lot since you ARE a Red Sox fan.  I may like you less when your Red Sox are pounding my Blue Jays in the ’09 Standings.

Cincinnati Reds preview today.  Posting might be down a little (other than the previews) until Thursday as I have a MASSIVE paper due.  Gotta love school.

GRIFFEY!!!!!! *Falls to knees and shakes fists at the Gods*

Well, he went back to Seattle…mere minutes after I published the Braves preview, stating how I thought Griffey would be there, he signed in Seattle.  I don’t have the energy to go re-write it, so it stays.  ‘Tis the reality of writing previews when there is still a lot of movement to be had.

The Marlins will be done and up tomorrow afternoon.

OH…and thank you to Julia for adding me to her favourite blogs.  When I get some free time, I’ll add some links of my favourite MLBlogs and there’s no doubt that Julia’s will be there…even though she’s a Red Sox fan and she just quietly rooted for Scott Downs to be put on the DL.  JUUULLIIIIAAAA!!!!!  I shake my fist at thee.
