I would have to assume our appearance in the Midwest League Championship Series probably helped spike interest in the blog, but thanks again to all my regular readers.  Things have been a little sparse lately as I’ve been working on some other offseason projects, but I hope to be posting content more regularly again soon.

Thanks again!

The “Latest Leaders” rankings are again out for the ProBlogs portion of MLBlogs, and I’m excited to report that The LumberBlog finished 38th out of the Top 50.  That’s the highest ranking ever for this blog, higher than blogs run by the Boston Red Sox, Milwaukee Brewers, Oakland Athletics and several other minor league blogs.

LumberBlog: 40th Place in August

The “Latest Leaders” list for August is out now thanks to the folks over at MLBlogosphere (, and surprise, surprise, the LumberBlog has jumped several spots to take over 40th place on the ProBlogs list.

I know what you’re thinking, 40th doesn’t sound that good.  There’s 39 other blogs being read by more people.  Consider this…the LumberBlog is just three spots behind the blog that updates Minnesota Twins fans on the progress of their highly-anticipated new ballpark and just two spots behind the famous Philadelphia Phillies Ballgirls.  It’s also three spots ahead of one of my big-league mentors in Brian Anderson of the Milwaukee Brewers. That’s good company.

Where exactly this blog goes from here in the coming months is uncertain.  One of the things I’ve tried hardest to do with this blog is let the players, coaches, staff, etc. speak for themselves.  My opinions have taken a backseat to their words.  Now that the season is over and they’ve all left town (literally, there was no-one but manager Scott Steinmann in the home clubhouse an hour after today’s game), I can only speak for myself.

My tentative plan is to update once a week with something.  I do have a few things left up my sleeve.  Keep reading and let’s crack the top 40 in September!


The LumberBlog: 46th-Best

The “Latest Leaders” for June, 2009 are out over at Mlblogosphere, and the LumberBlog has jumped up two spots from #48 to #46.  At this rate, I’ll crack the Top 40 by September, just in time to have nothing to write about.

I kid.  Thanks to all who read this thing, I’m still surprised that we get as many views as we do.  The Clinton LumberKings are one of the smallest baseball markets amongst full-season affiliates, and for there to be such an interest in what’s going on here really speaks to the intensity of the Seattle Mariners’ fan-base.  “LumberKings Nation” apparently is nothing to slouch at, either.
