• Blog, Blah, Blah…

    Posted by on June 24th, 2010 · Comments (14)

    Here’s a topic to take your mind off the Yankees sloppy play last night…What are you thoughts on the Yankees Blogosphere as it stands today?

    What are your favorite Yankees blogs and why? Which Yankees blogs are the “up-and-comers” in your mind and why? Which Yankees blogs have slipped in your “favorites” standings lately and why? Which Yankees blog deserves more attention? Which Yankees blog does “nobody go to any more because it’s too crowded”? What do you not find in the Yankees Blogosphere that you wish there was more of? Is there something that you find too often in the Yankees Blogosphere? Which Yankees blog has the best reader commentators and why? Which Yankees blog has the worst reader commentators and why? Which Yankees blog has the best format and why? Which Yankees blog has the worst format and why? If you could get one of your favorite Yankees blogs to do more or less of just one thing, what blog is it and what’s that thing – and why?

    Basically, this is an open thread to discuss any and all things pertaining to Yankees blogs. Feel free to use the questions above for discussion and/or post some others that could to mind.

    You can just discuss WasWatching.com, if you want, and all opinions are welcomed. But, if you want to discuss other Yankees blogs here too, that’s fine and encouraged. So, what do you say?

      Which Yankees blog has the best reader commentators and why?

      Other than this one of course, ;) The comments on Nomaas really crack me up sometimes.

      I still only mainly view WW, Nomaaas, RespectJetersGangster, Lohud and RiverAve on a daily basis. Everything else usually just repeats the main daily headlines.

      My scanning-of-blogs time has been significantly reduced lately, but I always stick to WW/LoHud/RiverAveBlues/NoMass. They all give me different perspectives of Yankee news that are refreshing in their own way.

      I only comment on WW though.

      Read: WW, RAB, TYU every single day

      RSS Feed: WW, RAB, TYU, LoHud, RLYW, Pending Pinstripes

      Comment: WW only, with the occasional comment at TYU or Pending Pinstripes. For whatever reason, my browser at work doesn’t sync up well with either TYU or Pending Pinstripes so I find commenting to be too difficult over there and I stay off my computer at home as much as possible because I’m plugged in 8-10 hours a day at work.

      During the season I find that I read less blogs than I do during the offseason. (probably cause the time is spent watching the games rather then reading blogs)

      So I’d say I read this, Lohud, Big League Stew (not a yankees blog, but does cover yankee items), SWB Yankees Blog, and the baseball-reference stat of the day blog regularly during the year. (I also read non-yankee blogs DRaysBay and Drunk Jays Fans) During the offseason, I’ll read pretty much anything.

      Oh and add mlbTradeRumors.com to that. The only site I comment on regularly is here, although from time to time I’ll leave a comment @ mlbTradeRumors

      WW and Bronx Banter… Dassit! On occasion, I may hit up RAB, but those two comprise the bulk of my browsing.

      WW, LoHud and RAB on a regular basis.

      RLYW sometimes. Bronx Banter occasionally. TYU once in a while. No Maas when they have something special on the minor leagues. Stadium Insider once in a while.

      Gotta say…thought this one would get more play?

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      I’m pretty sure you’ve asked this type of question before..maybe thats why it had less comments this time?

    11. June 25th, 2010 | 4:27 pm

      Maybe?

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      Well, I can only speculate as I dont know everyones thinking on the matter. I commented, what more do you want? ;)

      I agree with Clint, I almost didn’t comment…mostly because I must have posted a reply to this type of question a few times now

      For me it’s just here, NoMaas for the laughs, Lohud occasionally for updated Yankee dish. Anything else would be oversaturation for anyone who watches most of the games.
