More than any other sport, baseball lends itself to individual blog obsession. Every Major League Baseball team has several blogs obsessed with chronicling the ins-and-outs of everything. Deadspin salutes these modem-addled souls and proudly presents Blogdom's Best, given to the most outstanding blog for each team. If you would like to nominate a blog (yours even) for selection, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Today: The Los Angeles Dodgers.
Our favorite part about Dodger Stadium is how it kind of tricks you into thinking you're not in Los Angeles. You're going through downtown and all the LA wretchedness (we mean that in a good way), and you take the Dodger Stadium exit, and next thing you know, you're in one of the most beautiful stadiums in all of sports. No matter what's happening in LA, with the team or with anything else, taking in a Dodgers game is a sublime experience. Well, for the fourth through seventh innings, anyway. (Sorry.)
3. Paul DePodesta For President. Not exclusively on the Dodgers, but certainly clever and full of solid info. Now, about that name ...
2. Dodger Hill. We don't really understand the name, but like all the MVN sites, this is professionally done and well put together. And, unlike a lot of Dodgers fans of late, level-headed.
1. Dodger Thoughts. One of the great Baseball Toaster sites, its level of detail and Sabermetric devotion is both awesome and terrifying. We don't really like the Dodgers much, and we still can't stop reading.
(Wednesday: Florida Marlins.)
