What’s New on the Blogroll

In recent months I’ve been adding links to the ol’ sidebar, but haven’t had the opportunity to mention most of them. Here are a few of the newest additions to the Roll, Blog(roll): Fireblossom’s APBA Baseball Blog: Though there are a few prominent female tabletop-sports gamers in the blogosphere (Diane Firstman of Value over Replacement Grit and Laurie Berry of somworld.com may be the two most widely known), as far as I know, Fireblossom’s APBA Baseball Blog is the only tabletop-sports-specific blog wholly written and operated by a woman.

1969 Mets What If C&D Replay: The Reggie Project!

THE REGGIE! PROJECT: 1969 Prologue: The Reggie! Project is my multi-season project, wherein I’m playing full season (single-team) replays from different stages of Reggie Jackson’s career. I’ve completed Reggie’s 1977 Yankees season and his 1982 California Angels season. In the coming months I’ll be posting results of Reggie’s 1969 season. Though the ’77 and ’82 seasons were recreated using mostly as-played lineups for all teams, the 1969 season will be different.

OneForFive Top 5 Greatest Hits

In the 4+ years of this blog’s existence, there have been somewhere around 450 published posts. The 5 listed below have had more hits than any others:  Damocles of the Dodgers – probably my favorite post of all time, too. The reason it ranks so high is that NBC Sports linked to it on their site. It’s a word-for-word transcription of a story Vin Scully told on air during a Dodgers broadcast on April 15, 2013. I heard it while watching the game and immediately knew it had to be transcribed for posterity, and thousands of others seem to have … Continue reading
