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 Angels Of Anaheim.
We are not going to make fun of the name, because we've covered that already and, besides, the team was just eliminated last night, so we should be nice. The Angels seem to be making the right moves to avoid the White Sox/Mets lament of being the other team in town, and as long as Milton Bradley's still hanging around Chavez Ravine, they should continue to succeed. It's almost enough to make you want to forgive their fans, who have given us the Rally Monkey, Thunder Stix and the sneaking feeling that Disney runs everything.
3. Purgatory Online. Strange name for a blog that's not about celestial dieties. Posts are sometimes eye-shatteringly long. That's good, though.
2. Chronicles of the Lads. Similarly long posts, but a good sense of this franchise's quixotic history.
1. Halo's Heaven. Amusing combination of weirdo commentary and legitimate viewpoints. Plus, it even has its own designed logo.
