1.6.2. Independent Commentary (Including Blogs) It seems a little silly to list a set of blogs in a book, but many of these sites have been around for years and are very well produced. The best have evolved into subscription services, and they offer some pretty good content for the money. Baseball Prospectus This is the most entertaining source for forecasts and commentary on baseball, with good resources for the fantasy player. The web site, http://www.baseballprospectus.com, has many good articles and statistics available free of charge and a lot more good stuff for subscribers. Baseball Graphs One of my favorite independent web sites is http://www.baseballgraphs.com. This site presents groups of statistics graphically, looking at statistics in ways that you've never seen them before. Baseball Musings Check out http://www.baseballmusings.com, the blog from David Pinto, the former lead researcher for ESPN's Baseball Tonight. This is a great source of commentary from a really knowledgeable fan. In particular, look at the "Defensive Charts, Probabilistic" analysis. Thorn's Blog John Thorn wrote or edited some of the best books ever written about baseball, and he has a terrific blog at http://thornpricks.blogspot.com. Most Valuable Network There is a great set of blogs at http://mostvaluablenetwork.com, including a few devoted to specific teams. Baseball Think Factory You can find a really good web site for discussing baseball statistics at http://www.baseballthinkfactory.org. Tango on Baseball Check out http://www.tangotiger.net, a site that provides a great collection of essays and analysis.
