Not sure why I’m on a baseball tangent today. It’s not like my team (the Pittsburgh Pirates) is doing very well this year. I just read an intriguing post though at Om Malik’s site theorizing that Six Apart and Major League Baseball have a baseball blog project in the works called mlblogs.com. Very interesting and […]
