When I first started blogging, I aspired to reach the level of RLYW and Bronx Banter. Back then, Banter was on the Baseball Toaster network, one I got to know well over the next few years. Sadly, it has come to an end. With Banter on the SNY Network and Toaster flagship Jon Weisman now with the L.A. Times, they’ve closed up shop. While a handful of their bloggers have called it quits, you can still find many of the mainstays elsewhere, including the must-read Cardboard Gods.
