Major Reconstructive Surgery 

In case anyone noticed I conducted some long overdue surgery on the 'ol blog. I pared down the information, stat and pundit links to just the ones that I actually bother to read on a semi-daily basis. (e.g., Hardball Times, Baseball Think Factory and Baseball Prospectus.) I also added about a half-dozen Phillies blogs that popped up over the course of the season that I failed to add in. In particular I realized that I owe an apology to Tom over at Balls, Sticks & Stuff for failing to add him to my blog-roll despite his contributions to Phillies blogging in general and to my site in particular. Tom, you do a great job and I enjoy reading what you have to say.

Other terrific Phillies blogs that popped up this season were Swing and a Miss, Phog Lights, Phanatic Phollow Up and PhilliesBlog. Sorry it took me so long, fellas.

The fan blogs. Bottom-line: I pruned out all of the non-Phillies blogs that had disposed of their reciprocal links. Much to my surprise, Detroit Tigers bloggers (Tiger Blog, Detroit Tigers Weblog and Detroit Sports Blog) had the most reciprocal links to A Citizen's Blog outside of the Phillies blogosphere. Thanks fellas. Go Tigers!

I also added a section entitled "Must-Read" blogs. These are non-Phillies blogs that I feel are some of the best writing on the 'net. These are amateurs who, frankly, write better than some professional writers do. They are: Aaron Gleeman's Baseball Blog (Minnesota Twins & more), RedBird Nation (Cardinals), Honest Wagner (Pirates and some Pittsburgh sports), Athletics Nation (A's), and Petco Padres (Padres). Read these guys. These are the blogs I aspire A Citizen's Blog to be.

So there you go. I am compiling a "final" post for the year that aims to sum up my thoughts on the 2004 season. This will hardly be my final post of the year. There is the Phillies search for a manager to complain about, the playoffs, the free agency and winter trades, etc.

And there is also my Eagles blog too.

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my logo sports related site. It pretty much covers logo sports stuff. I guess you may find something of interest.
