On the heels of the first Yankee win of the season comes the news that the Baseball Bloggers Alliance has predicted a World Series rematch for 2010.
The Baseball Bloggers Alliance, of which I am a new member, was formed in 2009 and numbers 147 blogs across baseball, representing every major league team and including numerous general baseball blogs. For the first time, the membership of the BBA was polled for their preseason predictions, with the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies being the most common selections for World Series participants. The Yankees received 36 votes to easily outpace Boston's 18, while the Phillies' 31 votes edged out St. Louis's 24. The rematch ends the same as last year, with New York being the choice of 20 of the 75 that cast ballots.
The BBA has a lot more than predictions to offer. The official website of the BBA is located at www.baseballbloggersalliance.com. The BBA can be found on Twitter by the handle @baseballblogs and the hashmark #bbba. Members of the BBA may also be heard at Blog Talk Radio each Tuesday night with their call-in show, BBA Baseball Talk. Check them out!
