Featured Site of the Week! MLB Reports was founded over a year ago by Jonathan Hacohen who has been writing about baseball for twenty years. Many of us start our sites with the hope they catch a spark and become well received and popular. MLB Reports has showed us the way with hard work, great writing and a nice finger on the pulse of what social media can do to promote what we do. If you love a great baseball site and want to know how to make a dent in this media, look no further than the work Jonathan, Rob Bland and April Whitzman do over at MLB Reports. For their featured link this week, the choice is a great look at the farm system of the Toronto Blue Jays.
