Following up on Jason’s news from Friday, Rob announces the team-specific blogs that are now partnered with ESPN. There they are:
• Fire Brand of the American League (Red Sox);
• Mack Avenue (Tigers)
• GoHalos.com (Angels);
• Memories of Kevin Malone (Dodgers);
• Nick’s Twins Blog; (Colt .45s);
• It’s About the Money (Stupid!) (Yankees);
• Crashburn Alley (Phillies);
• Fungoes (Cardinals);
THT’s own Evan Brunell runs Fire Brand. Jason, of course, is IIATMS. I also know Bill Baer at Crashburn Alley. Good guys all of them, and I’m assuming there’s quality product at the other places too.
And if you disagree? Hey, fair enough. I’m a big fan of bloggy innovation, however, so kudos to ESPN moving away from that “if it didn’t appear on ESPN first, it doesn’t exist” approach they’ve historically pursued. There are a lot of great voices out there. It’s good to see some of them getting recognized and mainstreamed by a monster like ESPN.
