mlblogs: mlblogs.com has launched, and it's pretty fun. It's got me thinking though, that I have no idea what the best Baseball blogs are anymore. What are they?

Hey! The ** asterisk was NOT a mistake, but the HG/JG was. :) The asterisk was a clever visual pun! Can they be restored?

With a face like this, it's a wonder we have any women users. Is Sportsfilter into being a boys only site, or is it a happy accident?

Ponies! Remember when I suggested we have a collaborative link space? We could use Memigo for this purpose, or one of the spofi owners could implement this on the sportsfilter.com domain. With it's "Junior Authors" feature, TypePad makes this trivial, but I'm not sure I can afford the bandwidth on my personal typepad page. I've also got a Sports/Games RSS (1.0) feed as part of a larger links project of mine, so you can get a sense of how it works if you have a news reader.

I'd love a collaborative RSS/(N)echo feed maintained by spofi member for any and all sports-related links. It could be used for scoring updates, quickies, kind of like a non specific but all encompassing links sidebar. It'd be a perfect workday distraction and place to park "Would you look at that!" kind of posts that don't warrant discussion. A few examples:

  • Mo's rehab is going well, entering its third cycle
  • Mets 9, Braves 2
  • Neat article about Lance's workout
  • I highly recommend seabiscuit
  • MoWiki
  • Check out this cool old spofi thread, still active
ESPN and non-commercial self links would be encouraged here as well. It could be powered by a simple trackback form (but of course MT would not be required). Posts could also appear on Spofi, or discussions could pop up on other member's blogs. it's also trivial to convert such a feed to a links sidebar, hosted here and/or on Member's blogs.

What about banning espn links for two weeks, forcing people to post from their local papers and seek out news coverage that we're less likely to see on their own. I think most spofi users check espn at least as often as we look for new posts here - so why not elimate the duplication and see what happens?

The Rockport Rassafrass hold a slim lead early, and Jay Payton is my best hitter. Trash talk/gossip/rumors in here, please!

i feel like the spofi cop, but who the heck is looking for (and deleting) double posts?

I know I'm the worst offender, but people: Please check your posts for typos. No one wants to hang out with a bunch of lazy illiterates.

I downloaded the mozila 1.1 nightly (Linux, "natch?") and I was getting a Cookie.SMALL_FONT_SIZE error that I thought was site-wide, until I went home and viewed this lovely site on my TiBook. Anyone else have this problem? Is it Linux only?

What is the sportsfilter policy on cross posting? Between Sports and Meta? Between Sports and personal blogs? For instance, I put links up on rW to sportsfilter, but would it be bad if I double posted them?

Was this mefi thread the first ever mention of sportsfilter? I was just wondering about the history of the site.
