Postby ninremix » Mon Jan 05, 2009 4:59 pm

I usually like to subscribe to one website for good fantasy information and articles in addition to the wonderful FantasyBaseballCafe.com. I am a huge fan of FootballGuys.com for fantasy football ... any recommendations for a fantasy baseball websites to subscribe too?

why would you pay for information that you can almost definitely get for free at the cafe??? :-?

Besides I put more weight on what the folks say here than anywhere else...

Yup. I do like theFantasyman.com, largely for entertainment and "thought" value.

Send me money and I won't ban you, then it'll be like paying for a site. I take PayPal. ;-D

ninremix asked a reasonable question and there is no need to trash him for it. I understand the cafe mentality and agree this is the best site for fantasy baseball information, and you can't beat the cost. But there are plenty of pay sites out there some with very valuable information, and it seems reasonable to answer his question.

I'm no expert on what is out there, but I'll give a couple I have heard of.

It seems lots of folks like baseballhq.com. It is very pricey, and they have a very strong focus on the numbers. It isn't worth it to me, but I know it is well respected.

http://baseballprospectus.com/ is another one that seems well respected.

Another great resource is http://www.fantasybaseballhub.com. The hub itself is free, but they provide links to all sorts of other services and show which ones are pay services.

I don't think anyone trashed him at all. I can't add anything helpful because I've never used a fantasy pay site. :-B

Hardball Times puts out some really nice articles worth reading. I used to read a blog called Nine Bo Jacksons that was tremendous, but I can't seem to find it anymore -- I think it may no longer exist (:-/). For $3/month, you can join Bill James Online, which I've heard is quite good. I strongly recommend the Prospectus, as neoforce suggested, and Fangraphs is also a great resource. My favorite site, Cafe aside, for non-forum updates is Baseball Think Factory, which I read religiously during the season. Happy hunting! ;-D

All of the above sites are a good read, and free for the most part.
