What's your source for baseball info?

In any order, I'll read the Cafe, BP, the free stuff at BA. I'll also look through the columns on ESPN and Sportsline.

I'm curious how much reading/researching we all actually do. There's probably a loose correlation with winning or doing well in your leagues.

Buster Olney's blog on espn is an absolute must-read for me every day. After that, it's the Cafe.

Daily basis on the offseason:

FBC, Sickels, Sportsline

Weekly (changes to daily about a month before the season):

BA, Baseball Analysts, BP, ESPN, Rototimes, Brewerfan.net

I don't pay for anything, so only the free stuff. Pretty much a lurker everywhere but here.

Baseball Prospectus, Sickles, Olney, Gammons (whenever he writes), and of course The sports economist.

Baseball Analysts is pretty good. They usually have 2-5 articles posted during the regular season. It's pretty good stuff from a variety of sources.
