This is outstanding. Just voted.
Thanks, Mark. We’re hoping to have a little fun with it.
Oooh this looks fun! I’m a big March Madness fan, so this is fabulous. I believe if I make it past round one, I’ll be knocked out in round two! Hahaha!
Ah, now this is sweeeeeeeeeeet! Go Red! Go Blue! Go RSBS!
Can I vote for my own blog? Or is that completely disgusting and shameful? In which case, I think I will.
You, Jane, can do anything you want. Afterall, you’re the No. 1 seed. You’re favored to take the whole thing.
Oh no I was 33, oh well best of luck to all of you.
MLB in the eyes of a 13 year old
That one hurt, I would be like Davidson…
can’t believe jane voted for her own blog. that was so running up the score. mark http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com
Oh My, I might get Baseball cleats in the second round if I am not upset by Baseball, Yankees and life.
Guess I will this years Charleston College or UNC-Charlotte and try and get to the Elite eight……….wish me luck.
Hey guys, this was an awesome idea. But that is why you are the MAX guys. Great idea and fantastic groupings of the blogs.
Please vote for Rays Renegade………..I promise not to dribble on you.
Wow this is exciting. I am in March Madness on my own. haha
Guys, this idea is amazing! I just voted…it felt like the right thing to do and all…
Ha – someone must have just voted for Bats to be different. I do think Baseball Cleats is going to be a much more formidable foe than his Baseball Bats. Cleats is a usual top-10 Fan Blog. Everyone wants Jeter’s shoes. BOSTON RED SOX BLOG will have his hands full for that one. I see a lot of potential upsets in this bracket!
Make sure you guys visit the actual Latest Leaders, so you can click on each of them…since that’s why LL exists!
Cannot wait for when The ‘Burgh Blues turn comes around! Excellent idea, Max. Hopefully with this tournament, Pirates will accomplish something they haven’t done in 17 years – win! Good luck to everyone, cannot wait for the final results.
The Max …
Great idea !!! …
Maybe for my #25, you can list as “BY&L” or “B,Y, and Life …” [thanks].
Anyway, I’m up against tough competition in the first round vs. an excellent blog, “Rays Renegade” … But, I look forward to the contest, and a fun tournament for everybody !!!
Best Wishes and Good Luck to all !!!
— Jimmy [27NYY], “BY&L”
Too bad this didn’t go up to 36. I’d like see where I rank.
Oh man … Bats are making a statement with a big 16% push. Hopefully Yankee fans will rally to help push me past the first round.

I don’t need baseball bats as much as I need an opinion to discuss. Jane is an accomplished author. She deserves to advance.
Confessions of a She-Fan has 84%
(On the other hand, what did we expect?)
Forgot to put…
Renegade you have my vote just for having the best line of the tournament “I won’t dribble on you.” Classic.
I would vote for Rays Renegade! Sorry Jane.
Wow. So far it’s 50/50!
Jen you know I voted for you!
Hmmmmmm, #11 on Day 11 …. Do you wish on 11:11?

Hmmmmmm, #11 on Day 11 …. Do you wish on 11:11? No? Me neither, but you should probably bet on it, and then vote on it!
Rosh Koch // http://roshkoch.mlblogs.com
MOVEABLE TYPE ERROR!!! JERK!!! Now I look like a clown … like the guys I just wrote about …
Rosh Koch // http://roshkoch.mlblogs.com
Yes, it is an enormous crush. I admit it. I can’t help it. :)
I voted for ya Jen! Good luck!!
Everyone VOTE FOR ME!!! Go KING YANKEES!!!
P.S. I’m gone in the second round if I make it through.
I voted for Jen’s diatribe. Yeah she’s a White Sox fan but I respect her way of expressing her opinion.
Ha, this is real tough because both are good. Actually all MLBlogs are good. I will be the worst voter ever. I voted but will keep my votes silent the rest of the way (possibly). :)
Haha Mark, I think we’ll all believe it when we see it… or is that DON’T see it? ;)
Thanks for revising my blog name to: “B, Y and Life …” on the above bracket listings !!! Now, I look forward to my battle with “Rays Renegade” in an upcoming vote !!!
Take care, and “Good Luck” to all blogs in: “The Max Blog Tournament” !!!
— Jimmy [27NYY], “BY&L”
Wow, this looks like a lot of fun! I’m not really sure how it works, but I’ll go with it and learn as we go!
Murder them Red Sox! The cleats deserve a first round knock out!
This matchup between Cleats and Red Sox is a no-brainer I’m guessing.
Come on Jimmy,
Time to have some fun.
Hey first off, you have an awesome blog and you should be proud of it. I am looking forward to the tourney, but wish I did not have to face you first.
I am just here to have fun and do not take it serious, but in the end, the readers win.
Max guys, thank you for correcting typo. You are the bomb!!!!
Hey, Rays Renegade …
Thanks for the kind words !!!
I feel the same about your blog, as you do “Excellent” work; and, it is always a pleasure to view all your great posts and comments !!!
This “Max Tournament” is a fun way for all mlbloggers to get to know their fellow bloggers, and we are all winners, because we belong to this great baseball community here at mlblogs/mlb.com !!!
Best Wishes, and Good Luck to Rays Renegade !!!
And, I thank everybody, in advance, for your support, and, also, for your visits to my mlblog !!!
Everybody, “Have a great day” !!!
— Jimmy [27NYY], “BY&L”
You got my vote Rays!
This is cool. This type of voting is private and discreet. Now the truth will come out. Have fun with this and shake things up a little bit…D
No upsets so far on this NCAA blog format. I wonder if this will change.
Ya Eat, Sleep, Baseball! If I pass to the next round then I promise the first Max Madness upset over the Future Blog of the Red Sox.
Oh man. I am so nervous.
Good Luck 1 Constant!
Sweet! I was the first upset!
Don at Rockpile Rant for MVB…that guy is freakin’ awesome.
Don, Don, Don, Don…as the crowd erupts!
Thanks Happy that was very cool. Hey Max, lets get this right though, I’m a father of three, grandfather (very young), snowboarder, full-time job worker, VW Bus driving, baseball snagging, autograph collecting, hellova friend and it looks like I own the # 4 spot here at MLBLogs. Vote for me, don’t vote for me, it’s all good. I just keep rolling, because I got it like that…D
2 upsets so far, the one I was most surprised by was Baseball Cleats & Shoes getting knocked out. I think it’s because others associate it with not being community-oriented and “sociable” and not commenting, but I still give Thomas much cred for making $ with it. That’s my biggest surprise so far in the tourney. Julia wins this one by 12 trillion miles, sorry BC…again same assumed sociable edge works there but she also has good content. I think Cleats & Shoes got adiosed due to the sociability factor. What do you guys think? Not dissing BRSB in beating it, would have made this point if it had lost to anyone. Would like to see more enterprise/capitalism shown on MLBlogs! Go Thomas, keep posting those cleats at http://baseballspikes.mlblogs.com – let’s see some new Nikes or Mizunos! LOL Mark http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com
WOW – tough matchup coming up next with Jen at Phillies Phollowers vs. Zoe at Pick Me Up Some Mets! We will have some fun with this one on the MLBlogs panel — Max, let me know when you see that matchup happening, how long…we can have some fun with big NL East rivalry Jen vs. Zoe! Will they each guarantee a victory or call the other a choke artist? Mark http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com
I promise to play nice….sort of :O) Stay tuned…
We’ll get the next matchup going momentarily. Should be a good one.
Oh, to answer the second part of your question, Mark, we’ll keep it up over the weekend. Hope that helps.
Wow, surprised by the huge early lead for Jen over Zoe…thought this would be close…will be interesting to see how the voting goes as I understand this round will extend through Monday. May the best NL East division rival blogger win! They are both great! Will be promoting it on mlblogs.com as well. – Mark http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com
You are correct, Mark. We are very intrigued by this NL East matchup. So we’ve decided to extend it through Monday.
Oh man … I’m seeded higher on this, but King of Cali totally has the bigger fanbase. I didn’t even make the list last week!!! Maybe the Yankees fans out there will vote for me. If I go to round 2, you’ll get the skinny on my pro wrestling past. With pictures! PROMISE!
Rosh Koch – http://roshkoch.mlblogs.com
This is cool. I’m going to have fun voting :)
Mark – Oh yeah of little faith Did you really think we Red Sox fans would let cleats beat a Red Sox blogger??
lol – And I didn’t even know that I made it past the first round! Guess who didn’t vote for herself! ;-)
it’s cool you put Confessions of a She-Fan and Julia’s Rants in separate ‘conferences’.. i predict those those two blogs will face off in the finals
Gotta go with Philles Phollowers in the first round. After all she represents the defending world champs:)
Just wanted to say that not only does it look like Phillies Phollowers is kicking some butt, but today is also Jenn’s birthday (she may kill me for this). All you she-fans may want to check out a special blog entry I’ve created for her special day: For She-Fans Only Guys, you can look too, but you might not appreciate it as much! :-)
Rants, Raves, and Random Thoughts
This seems really cool. =) I just hope I get past the first round, but I don’t know… looks like I have a hard first round match. lol VOTE FOR KING OF CALI…. “I PROMISE CHANGE” lol ;)
~King of Cali
wheres the pro blogs on haha
King Of Cali!!!!!!! Upset!
Vote ‘Burgh Blues!
So if you guys haven’t read about it yet, Michael Cera agreed to sign on for the Arrested Development film. It’s a reality now my brotha’s!
Screw it…I have no shame. VOTE FOR ME!!!
Cool idea. I’ll say it’ll be the Rockpile Ranter vs Burgh Blues for the championship.
I voted for RSBS for the first round and it looks like most did to this point.
Thanks for the support. Nobody does March Madness like the MAX.
It’s finally my turn! Thanks for the votes!
round two starts…
Wow, A Diatribe of a Law Student: Baseball Edition is tied with Confessions of a She-Fan. I voted. This might turn out ot be a BIG upset.
Go Diatribe, you’ve got my vote…D
Jen you’re winning! This could the biggest upset ever!
This is awesome, you’ve got to love a good upset. The blog that gets all the attention wiped out by the lucky # 13 blog. Way to go Diatribe…D

~ King of Cali
Indeed it is…Go King of Cali….D
VOTE ‘BURGH BLUES! I mean, the Pirates have to win something…
I think someone is just sitting there clicking for burghblues cause I was kicking some but and every time i look for a update it’s just showing my lead going away and now im losing. happening way to fast. lol Oh well I don’t care. I would have won if it wasn’t rigged by someone clicking every second to move burgh blues up. lol
STILL KING OF CALI EVEN WITH A LOSS.
I mean I did some promoting on our blog, twitter but I highly doubt it’s rigged (tracks IP). Good luck man, you have a terrific blog.
Yikes…I’m getting trounced. VOTE FOR ME!
Here’s a cool fact that I noticed: EVERY SINGLE ODD-NUMBERED SEED HAS BEEN ELIMINATED.
Bronx, I hope that holds up. But, Jen and I are both even numbered?
Do not forget to vote today/tomorrow and Sunday? for Rays Renegade on the Max tourney.
ALDS rematch of the Rays versus the White Sox…….Who deserves to win this time?
Thank you in advance for voting……………….just vote again lol
Odd numbers are BOOTY! I voted for Rays…was I supposed to tell? :)
Wait a minute! Some insane upsets happening here. This is like http://www.votefortheworst.com but for MLBloggers.
Steve T. (inexplicably knocked out in the first round, and bitter!)
Actually, I was knocked out in the second round, but still. Next year, final four or bust!
Max guys, I think you like leaving me in suspense. :) All of my matchups seem to occur on a Friday, leaving them up all weekend. And they’re all close votes! Nevertheless, this has been fun. In case I get knocked out, thanks to everyone who’s voted for me through all the rounds. I’m glad you all like my blog!
Thank you everyone from the Max guys to the voters in this past weekends Elite Eight match up between Jen and myself. As the this contest get close to its end, it is getting difficult for everyone to pick sides. I am just honored and thankful that I can make you think of me in that top group of bloggers.
Please do not forget to still hit the site daily and support the other people still fighting for their spots in the Final Four.
I am always amazed at the results, and feel blessed to have been able to last this long in the tourney.
Wow. Little BB could. What a crazy tournament! Thanks for everyone who voted.
Congrats, ‘Burgh. your last match was a close one. In fact, we actually had Phollowers as the winners. But then checked PollDaddy quick one last time and saw that you squeaked it out.
Is this amazing stuff or what?
Is this crazy or what?!
