What are your favorite reference sites? 


After watching guys on here come up with all kinds of stats including home and road splits and things like that i wonder what are the best sites for Baseball statistics. Also what are other great Sport related sites that i may be missing? Anyone out there with any recommendations?

For stats I like fangraphs.com and baseballreference.com (for splits).   Also use minorleaguesplits .com.

For Cardinal's news nothing beatgs CardinalsBestNewsLinks.blogspot.com

Re: What are your favorite reference sites? 


Here are a few of the main ones I like. I think you can come up with pretty much anything using these sites.


Baseball Reference - http://www.baseball-reference.com/ - has a TON of data. Just browse around. It's crazy.

Baseball Prospectus - http://www.baseballprospectus....stics/sortable/ - great especially for SABR stats

Fangraphs - http://www.fangraphs.com/ - awesome, awesome site

Hardball Times - http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/stats/ - good stats glossary and articles.

Cot's (for info on contracts, etc.) - http://mlbcontracts.blogspot.com/

This covers the basics pretty well.  I'll add a few (too lazy to make links):
milb.com - great for minor league stats, schedules, stories, etc
retrosheet.org - has old box scores, great for finding specific games

Could this be pinned to the top of the page so it doesn't get lost? This is a good reference list.

I also like www.firstinning.com ... especially for minor leaguers.  I love the fact that there's a game log for minor leaguers at the ready.  I was watching Matias/Martinez's progress on First Inning when it was somewhat hard to find other places.

I agree with Sport that this should be pinned. Picture thread is not even pinned so i say it would be a long shot. Thanks for the input guys i will certainly look at all these sites.

Heh--I just remembered that I have a pin at my disposal, so I pinned it. If the other moderators don't think it should be pinned, I'm ok with them removing it. Let's keep this at the top until everyone at least has a chance to save some of these links in their favorites.

Add in firstinning.com and it completes my go-to list.

cnh,
I, too, am glad this is pinned. I also like to see when posters here recognize that they can become more knowledgable about baseball and seek out ways of doing so. So I'm glad to see you're interested.

The above-mentioned websites offer a ton of data/info. Once you start researching something specific, I think you'll quickly realize that these sites have more info and data than there's time in a day. It can really be overwhelming, but it sure is nice to have all of that data at your fingertips.

Baseball Reference has the sheer volume of data advantage, but I enjoy reading the articles on Fangraphs a lot and they have some different stats that BR lacks. Those two are both great.

Re: What are your favorite reference sites? 


Has anyone noticed on the front page of www.baseballreference.com they now have "2011 Payroll & Signings", along with each team listed and the number of players signed, current 2011 payroll, and estimated 2011 payroll.

"Current payroll" is defined as "Total of contracts for players signed. Does not include unsigned players under team control". "Estimated payroll" is defined as "Estimate of 2011 final payroll based on currently signed players, an estimate of arbitration awards, pre-arbitration contracts, and league minimum players to complete roster". FYI - it lists the Cardinals 2011 current payroll as $99.1 million & their 2011 estimated payroll as $111.1 million.

If you click on "STL" in the chart, it'll take you here, which is the Cardinal team payroll page. It lists each player, along with each player's age, years played, how player was acquired, major league service time, player's agent, contract status, and then it breaks it down to the specific amount the player is making each year.

This may have been on here before, but it's the first time I've seen it. I thought it was interesting.

No mention of Elias sports bureau? Back in the day (70's early 80's) they were widely referenced. What happened? Where is THE BEST place to go for all-time team v.s team records? Seems to me the only 2 NL teams to have a winning record v.s St.Louis are the Pirates and the Cubs. Ironic hugh?

Elias sells their data its not publicly available. This is not a complete stats site but it has good pitch fx data http://brooksbaseball.net/pfxVB/pfx.php
too bad minor league splits was removed. you can see all their data though on their site minorleaguesplits.com as well as their Major league equivalency calculator.
