MSTI Wins an Award

Oh, hey. How’s things? Nothing much going on here. Oh, well there’s this: LA Weekly named their “Los Angeles Web Award” winners today. Who’s that in the midst of bigshots like G4, LA Observed, Alyssa Milano, and yeah, even Perez Hilton?

How in the world this happened, I do not know, as the Dodger blogosphere is a collection of some of the brightest talents around, including but not limited to DodgerThoughts, TrueBlueLA, Sons of Steve Garvey, Vin Scully is my Homeboy, and many more – and that’s just baseball, because there’s also plenty of quality work for the Lakers, Kings, colleges, and so on. But I will take this as a sign that years of relentlessly bashing Juan Pierre, praising Matt Kemp, and working hard to kill off RBI & wins as relevant tools have actually been seen as useful, so I humbly accept. Thanks to Keith & crew at LA Weekly and anyone who’s taken the time to read or comment, good or bad, over the years, because you all keep me honest. My, how far we’ve come since the days of going against the tide to claim that Wilson Betemit should be starting at third base over Nomar Garciaparra, which is what I did in the 3rd MSTI post ever back in 2007. (Good lord, did I really use fielding percentage there? I suppose we all have to start somewhere.)

  1. [...] No one’s going to believe me on this, but I was just now halfway through writing a post about how the Dodgers should demote Jerry Sands to Albuquerque and recall Trent Oeltjen to take his place. Halfway is apparently as far as I’m ever going to get, because Dylan Hernandez reports that the Dodgers have done just that. Predicting an otherwise out-of-nowhere move? Sounds award-winning to me.
