Viagra history The Baseball Bloggers Alliance was formed in the fall of 2009 to encourage cooperation and collaboration between baseball bloggers of all major league teams as well as those that follow baseball more generally. Viagra history As of this writing, viagra history the organization consists of 316 blogs spanning all 30 major league squads as well as general baseball writing.

Viagra history The BBA is organized under a similar structure as the Baseball Writers of America, viagra history where blogs that follow the same team are combined into “chapters” and only two votes from the chapter on an award are counted. Viagra history The blog chapters that are focused on general baseball were allowed two votes as well, viagra history which they could use both on the same league or split between the two leagues.

Viagra history Chapters generally followed one of two methods when casting their ballot. Viagra history  Either representatives of the chapter were given the ballots for voting or a “group ballot” was posted, viagra history accounting for both of their votes.

Viagra history Notably, viagra history though the Alliance’s awards come out well before their official counterparts, viagra history the BBA selections have matched those of the Baseball Writers of America in all but two instances in the past two years. Viagra history  This, viagra history of course, viagra history does not include the Goose Gossage Award that is exclusive to the BBA.

Viagra history Ballots are posted on the respective blogs and for this award, viagra history were tabulated on a 5-3-1 point scale for first through third place. Viagra history In the interest of transparency, viagra history links are given below for the ballots. Viagra history Chapter affiliation is in parenthesis. Viagra history  Those chapters that decided on the group method are noted with an asterisk.
