Baseball sites thread on Metafilter
Many of you are probably familiar with Metafilter, one of the first community weblogs. It’s an interesting community of shared links.
Recently, the site has added an “Ask MeFi” page where members can post a question for which other members provide informed answers. In a group of 24,000+, you’d be amazed the wide array of expertise that exists there.
Baseball site expertise is included, apparently, since yesterday saw a cool thread about “what are the best national pastime sites on the Internet“?
There are a lot of great suggestions in the thread, some of which you’ll definitely know about (Prospectus, Baseball Reference) and others you may not (such as other baseball blogs). Many of the suggestions I can personally vouch for as awesome, like Baseball Toaster and Baseball Analysts. This also seems like a good way to track down some new gems you might have overlooked, so have a look if you’re so inclined.
Even if you aren’t a Metafilter member, you can read the site for free. You only have to be a MeFite to post. I know at least one other MeFite reads this humble blog, since there’s a USSM mention in the thread (and many thanks for that, by the way).
