Hey everybody and Happy New Year!! One of my Christmas presents that I have yet to cash in on was an online subscription to any baseball (yes baseball) site I want, given by my family. I wanted to get some input on what are the cream of the crop sites for myself as a recently transplanted out of market A's fan. I do like stats and things like that, but I am much more interested in reading articles and insight from great baseball minds even though I am not that well versed on who those people even are (oops). I love my A's but would enjoy reading about all teams and learning more about the minor leagues and up and coming stars in what little spare time I have.
Could anyone suggest some sites that have good content that wont just be the same recycled east coast love that is ESPN, FOX, and other major sports outlets. I suppose they wouldn't have to be subscription sites as really I am just trying to broaden my horizons on baseball literature. Nothing against the lovely and free AN, but you know.
I need help to make it that month until pitchers and catchers report, and would love a good site to read all season long. All suggestions welcome and thanks for the help AN!
