The folks at Gas Lamp Ball have taken into account a number of unnamed factors, and compiled a list of the top 10 baseball blogs. Athletics Nation tops the list followed by Baseball Musings and Metsblog.
I’m not sure of the methodology, or the relative rankings, but it certainly looks like a who’s who of the big players made it in the top 10.
Interesting to note that 5 of the top 10 are SB Nation sites.
UPDATE: Just saw this press release which talks a little more about the list, including the criteria:
There are three criteria that Sports Media Challenge use to rank blogs for the top 10 – Influence, Fan Engagement and Quality. These criteria combine quantitative aspects, including the number of incoming links that connect to the blog, number of fan comments as well as qualitative measurement by Sports Media Challenge analysts.
This list will be updated each month and can be found at Sports Media Challenge.
