*New, Improved* ICYMI: MLB Updates with Oakland A’s Socks Girl

1937873_10154372807300026_269571575_nWelcome to ICYMI: MLB Updates with Oakland A’s Socks Girl! Here at Bullpen, Baseball & Sock Talk I’ve tried to keep my readers updated on what’s new in Major League Baseball in a couple of different ways, though mainly through daily updates that included highlights from my blog (here! bbstmlb.com), the newest articles from the FanSided Network’s flagship MLB site CalltothePen.com and the day’s scores. However, with the editions my position as Editor at Call to the Pen and as a Featured Columnist on FanSided Network’s main page FanSided.com, it has become increasingly difficult to keep you updated on a daily basis and continue to include all the new articles plus the scores from every single game.

So what I am now proposing is this: every week on Saturday (this will be re-posted every Tuesday as well, “In Case You Missed It” the first time around! lol!). I will bring you a week’s worth of new articles from Call to the Pen, highlights of some of my favorite blog posts from the week here on Bullpen, Baseball & Sock Talk, any important/relevant posts from other MLBlogs I may have noticed, plus the team standings in each MLB Division and the Wild Card.

If you like the new format or don’t like it, please leave a comment below! Constructive criticism is always welcome as I strive to continue to improve my blog with each post! It seems my readership has diminished a bit lately and any suggestions on whatever I can do to keep you coming back is appreciated! So hopefully you will enjoy the New, (hopefully) Improved edition of ICYMI: MLB Updates with Oakalnd A’s Socks Girl!

  • I like ICYMI because I miss ‘it’ a lot! lol But I like to read the articles, so this helps me catch up. I did like it when you identified your article with an asterisk as well.
