How Many Mets Blogs?
My wife found this interesting tidbit while perusing MetSilverman.com:
… as of February 2008, the number of Mets blogs, according to baseballblogs.org, stood at more than 9,900
Wow. Almost 10,000 blogs on the Mets. Not baseball blogs, not team fan blogs, but 9900 blogs specifically focused on the Mets.
I wonder where MetsToday ranks among the other 9899?
BTW, Matt Silverman — who runs “MetSilverman.com” — is a longtime writer and editor with several excellent baseball books to his credit, including a few about the Mets.
One of his most recent efforts is “Mets By the Numbers“, co-written with Jon Springer (the guy who runs the blog of the same name). You may have noticed the “All Time Mets Numbers” link on the sidebar; it is a site I visit religiously and I’ve been eagerly anticipating the book for months.
Well now it’s out, and there’s a fine review over at Faith and Fear in Flushing. In due course I’ll be reviewing it as well.
