Trustworthy sites

Postby UrbanatorNation » Mon Mar 12, 2012 1:49 am

My apologies if this is already posted somewhere, but couldn't find it. I'm working off of a few magazines and ESPN (thats where our league is) for my draft prep. I was just wondering if anyone has suggestions on fantasy baseball sites they trust more than others for articles, projections, etc. Thanks!

The cafe and fangraphs are my go to places.. The content generated and discussions on this forum are some of the most informative you'll find. i usually buy baseball forcaster for funsies, but other than that i get most my information right here on the cafe. informative articles and a few users have their own projections (mine are in my sig). i may be somewhat biased though. ;-D

Not so much for projections but I have found this site extremely useful for tracking batting orders in spring training.

http://www.baseballpress.com/lineup.php

If you drill down into specific teams you an see the past weeks batting orders and you can see that someone like say Prado is batting 2nd almost every time they slot him in which adds a lot of value to him this year compared to getting stuck lower in the order etc.

I love razzball.com
not only does he give projections, but he gives a lot of write ups too. during the season every morning he goes over players from the previous days games that stood out.

The classics:
* Fantasy Baseball Cafe
* Rotoworld
* Baseball Notebook
* rjthebullpen.com

ESPNs coverage is getting better and better every year; especially for people with insider subscriptions. Their pre draft info including projections and player profiles is top notch.

Razzball is definitely my favorite, after the Cafe. And Rotoworld is hugely helpful, too.

The Cafe is the best place out there, though.

This. ;-D Plus Fangraphs in general. And Baseball-Reference for when I need some serious stats.

I shade in some ESPN and Yahoo stuff when I need some mainstream leavening in my rankings.
