Nine Innings/Questions On The 2016 Reds With ‘BBBA’ Blogger Shawn Weaver

Cincinnati Reds

Note From Chuck Booth:  We have some talented bloggers at the Baseball Bloggers Alliance, and our Executive Committee member (Peter Schiller) i doing an article series interviewing them.  Today he asks our friend Shawn Weaver about his Reds.

If you are a fan of these teams, I recommend to read their insights – and to also follow their websites. Peter is a good man.  He gave me my first chance ever to have an authorship page at his site over 7 years ago.

This is a series of articles where I ask fellow bloggers from the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBBA) 9 innings worth of questions about their team. The goal is to do this for as many teams as possible (all 30 would be ideal) a few times a season. This one is a pre-All Star edition, then a post-All Star edition, another down the stretch (towards the end of the season) and then either a playoffs edition or off season edition or both!

So, without further ado …

  1. How are the (your team name here)’s offseason acquisitions working out so far? Any concerns?

The acquisitions the Reds made were young guys for the rebuild, most of whom have not debuted yet.  We won’t know this answer for years.

Twitter And The MLB: Better The Team, More Followers? It’s Much More Than That.

With Spring Training finally getting underway, it’s refreshing to have actual baseball news to talk and write about it after a long winter, which continues to drag on.  

But even with workouts beginning in Florida and Arizona, this is still a pretty quiet period for another week or so- when games actually begin.  

With the down time, and while bracing for the madness of the regular season to being, it’s sort of refreshing to have some time available to look into subject matter, that otherwise, I may not give a second thought about when the thick of the season is underway.  

Several days ago, I noticed on twitter that the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens were celebrating hitting the 1 million follower mark for their official twitter page.  

I thought to myself, “ok, that’s pretty impressive”.  So, I decided to see where the baseball teams in the Majors ranked in terms of their following on the social media network.  At first, I really didn’t have a purpose, but then I thought that it would be interesting to take a look from top to bottom and see if anything sticks out.  

Then, the project evolved a bit to look into whether there were any correlations between market size (which I heavily assumed), or perhaps the weight that winning has on increasing followers.  

Seemed logical to me that teams that were successful, most likely had a following that was greater than perennial “losers”   And finally I figured I would take a look at the data from a geographical perspective.  

First, let’s take a look at the data (twitter followers tab is in thousands- for instance 1,570= 1.57 million), and pick out a few things that stick out:

BBBA Members Presence On The MLB Reports: Lots Of Content Heading To Our Site!

Chuck Booth (BBBA President/Majority Owner mlbreports.com) 

Follow The MLB Reports On Twitter 

As some of you have probably already surmised, the Baseball Bloggers Alliance has infiltrated the mlbreports.com big time over the last few months. 

These are talented writers that love the game as much as we do, and we have the pleasure of sharing some of their work on our place of the web.  I hope you embrace their work, and click the links over to their home sites.

I was named the President of the BBBA back in August and since I returned from my year-long MLB journey in October – I have been working with a lot of pro bloggers.

In 2011, I was lucky enough to have been tutored on baseball writing by our ‘website founder’ Jonathan Hacohen.  It is my wish to help out as many other independent bloggers as humanly possible as a ‘pay it forward’ maneuver.

MLB Reports is happy to give our social media power to the cause.

Chuck Booth (Left) and Jonathan Hacohen (Right) - MLB Reports Brass

Chuck Booth – Current Majority Owner (Left) and Jonathan Hacohen MLB Reports Founder and former Owner (Right) – MLB Reports Brass at the Rogers Center during 2012.  This website has grown into Millions of views and established a great record of prediction on Gambling 101 topics.

The MLB Reports will still stick to its core of content – and this additional material will act as supplemental. We may reach over 2000 posts for the 2016 calendar season.

We have Sully’s Baseball Podcast for 366 episodes this year, and he runs a daily MVP segment during the regular season and playoffs called ‘Who Owned Baseball’.

We are still going to be hardcore when it comes to Gambling on baseball.  Hunter Stokes will run a weekly blog on all MLB Futures, and will have MLB Power Rankings during the regular season.

I will be helping Hunter write all of the 2016 MLB Team Payroll articles – and we are going to be going heavy on this aspect going forward – as it is one of our biggest strengths.  The plan is to update them a hell of a lot more.

We also have MLB Shutout Survivor and MLB Runs Scored Survivor coming back for 2016.

We also update the website every time there is a no-hitter, cycle or top 50 contract handed out. There are widgets on our sidebar window of the home page.  Of course, we also have a Tommy John Surgery ALL – Time List page we keep here at the site too.

I also will be updating the Interleague Results every day – and keep a running total of the records.

I have taken the MLB Scheduling off the site because it is to time intensive to maintain.  i still hate the fact that no MLB Website offers monthly and yearly running pages for their schedule like the nhl.com does, but there are not enough hours in the day to keep it true.

Look for more posts, and more coverage for all of your favorite teams and players in 2016!

If you haven’t had enough of your baseball fix, I am also operating the BBBA’s website over at bbba.work

Thanks for reading and for your time,
