Best Internet Source

Postby ChipperJonesFanatic » Sat Dec 16, 2006 9:35 pm

Hey guys, I am looking for the best internet site to get minor league information. I would prefer it to be relatively cheap (under $50, or close to it) a year. I really would like in depth analysis on how they fit into the teams future, ETA, and some comparisons.

Thanks in advance.

Baseball America is good, however for fantasy purposes Baseball Prospectus is very good. They give you tons of comps, rankings, etc.

It is $40ish a year, I believe. Their book ($13 preorder) is also a good buy.

A must if your league goes that deep.

Thanks for the replies. Any other websites? I have been looking into http://www.scout.com . Anyone use that?

Don't worry I still go to ProjectProspect.

Project Prospect is trash.

Some of the scout.com boards are pretty good. I haven't read many articles there though.


Not a rankings site, but I've been going here semi-regularly lately:

http://www.minorleaguesplits.com/


Also, I think MiLB.com's Around the Minors is pretty informative:

http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/radio ... rchive.jsp


Baseball America's podcast isn't too shabby:

Trash or not, http://www.projectprospect.com is very helpful. The people there usually know whats going on....and its free.

Thanks so far guys. Any more opinions on Scout.com or baseballamerica.com? I am really wanting to look more into minors, how insightful is prospectus?
