Beyond The Box Score Nominated For Best Sports Blog Of 2008

Our humble blog has been nominated as one of the best sports blogs of 2008 by The 2008 Weblog Awards folks.  Click on the badge below to go vote, if that's your sort of thing.  (Update: you can vote once every 24 hours through January 13th.)

The 2008 Weblog Awards

Of all the finalists, I've heard of less than half and read only a couple with any sort of regularity.  I should probably check more of them out.  Any faves from you readers?

If we limit the discussion to just baseball, I honestly don't believe we belong on the list.  My nominations would include The Hardball Times, Fangraphs, Baseball Musings, Baseball Prospectus, The Book Blog, and USSMariner.

The Hardball Times, especially, is taken for granted more than it should be.  There is some amazing stuff over there on a high-frequency basis, they led the charge on public defensive metrics (via RZR), they have some great stats (xFIP, OF arm ratings), and it's completely free (thanks, studes, et al).  In fact, let's turn this BtB-pimpage into a plea for our readers to buy the Hardball Times Annual.  Do it!
