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 email@example.com. Today: The Toronto Blue Jays.
Remember that old story about the couple that was caught having sex against the exposed window in a hotel in the SkyDome? That was a long time ago, back when a baseball stadium having something like a hotel in it was crazy; now we have pools, nightclubs and pretty much anything you can find to distract you for actually having to watch the game. The Blue Jays do not have one of the strongest blogging networks, and now that hockey's coming back, one wonders if it will pick up in the next few years, when the team is expected to improve. We also wish that they did more Argonauts coverage. But let's stop nit-picking.
3. Blue Jay Way. Less humor, more info, which is fine enough, people should stop trying so hard to be funny anyway.
2. Jays Nest. Compared to other MVN sites, it's somewhat sporadically updated, which is a shame. But the two authors put plenty of energy into their work, and their by-play is one of the most fun parts.
1. Batters Box. Baseball from a Canadian perspective, which means it's nicer, drinks more beer and has fewer guns. Somehow, this site got better once the Expos left.
(Wednesday: Los Angeles Dodgers.)
