BBST is back with MLB Trade Deadline news, video blogs, new posts and more!


I know it has been awhile since I posted. I haven’t posted any updates from Call to the Pen and believe me we have the scoop on everything that went down on Thursday. Every trade, every move! You can find it on

I was in a state of ecstatic shock regarding my Oakland A’s and the biggest trade (IMO) of the Trade Deadline. Those emotions moved from shock and awe to shock and anger/annoyance as the day’s second blockbuster trade went down just before the 4 pm Eastern deadline.

I’ve been working furiously on trade stuff, attempting to keep up with everyday life, writing my new Featured Column on (look for them every Wednesday and Sunday), keeping up with my editing duties, seeking out new staffers for CttP – if you think you have what it takes to be the next MLB writer – fill out an application HERE and a myriad of other things all surrounding the world’s greatest game: baseball!

Sure I am doing what I love and fulfilling a dream that I never believed to be in the realm of possibility – writing and talking about baseball and getting paid for it! Wow! Just saying that is like a being in a dream.

I am going to attempt to add to this blog – some hopefully weekly Video-Blogs! – my new computer that I bought after coming back from the mountains visiting my boyfriend’s mom, has an actual video camera so I won’t be having to use my phone anymore. That alone will cut back on the amount of time and effort it takes to do the videos. I am hoping this will work out as the few of you that do actually read my blog – LOL – have expressed that you liked them. So look for that coming soon (I am hoping maybe even today after Jon Lester makes his Oakland debut but all I can say is that it is tentative at best!)

Oh there’s that too! I am traveling to and from the mountains –  just about every ten days between here and there (home when the A’s are in town, away when they are away) and each drive is at least two hours so trying to “do it all” is really what has caused me to neglect my blog. I usually get too stressed out and while it is stressful, it is different this time around because I am finally doing what I love and am good at! 

So I am going to try to get back to maintaining this blog – I may not add score updates anymore but everyday there will be highlights from my blog, column and the latest MLB news from Call to the Pen! I’m doing my best and may have over-extended myself a bit but … I WILL FIND A BALANCE! So thanks for reading this and KEEP CHECKING IN HERE ON BBST!! – while I may not have the time to share in every forum there will be a daily post of some type that I hope you will find interesting, informative and helpful!!

Now here’s a look at just some of  the highlights from Call to the Pens coverage of the MLB Trade Deadline: (once you get there, there’s plenty more to read!)
