I find myself searching the "Is Brewerfan the Best" thread all the time to find this list of fan sites, so I figured it would be easier to just make a separate thread for them. Also, for people who don't realize these links are there, this may be helpful.

(I'm slowly but surely trying to update this list with better fan sites, as some of them are not the greatest. Also if any mods know of team sites that are better than the ones I have here, feel free to add them to the list.)

The list above has been updated. To make it easier to follow new replies, previous replies have been removed. Some sites are marked "appears to be defunct." That'll give them a chance to come back before they're deleted entirely.

I didn't check the newspaper section. Those tend not to change much.

I was wondering if anyone thought this thread should be moved to a different forum, maybe the IGT forum. It just seems to be somewhat hidden in the Issues/Events forum, with a lot of newer members not even knowing it exists. Just an idea.

JoeH33 and I discussed placement of this thread via PM, and we agreed that it'd be handy to access from numerous places around the board. Because stickying it all over the place is impractical, I've added this thread to the row of links that appears near the top of most board pages (Rules of Conduct, etc.).

We also decided that it'd be appropriate to move the Brewerfan.net Resource list into this thread.

EDIT: removed defunct link --1992

I think you should add Fangraphs to the valuable resources list.

Fan is short for fanatic.
I blame Wang.

It's added.

I'm also thinking that the "valuable resources" should be incorporated into the other resources document that'll be moved here soon. As it is, some of the links occur in both places. Can anyone think of a reason not to do that?

Cot's contracts might be a good one to add as well. I know we have the salary page on the main site, but it goes into a little more detail and has links to information about the CBA and free agency.

I've added Cot's.

An "untweaked" copy of the Resource List now appears above. I'm hoping to update it this weekend, so now's a great time to make any suggestions. I've already noted that the West Virginia stuff needs to be updated to the Timber Rattlers.

EDIT: I see both Cot's and FanGraphs were already in the Resource List. Image

DTFC Minnesota Twins Forums has closed. Their closure notice thread recommends Twins Territory. I've added the site above, but there's little activity on the message board, and other areas of the site appear to be in "upstart" mode. There's some nice blogging on the main page, though, including some recent pictures of Target Field.

If anyone can recommend any additional Twins fan sites and/or message boards, Joe or one of the mods can add them.

I've added the Huntsville Stars 10th Man Club to the "Minors and Independents" section in the lead.

I would humbly suggest you either add or switch the Cleveland Indian links to Indians Baseball Insider.
It does great work covering the Tribe club itself but also great work covering the various minor league affiliates for the Tribe...

Their baseball draft coverage was so good, their main person (Jeff Ellis) got hired to be the main person for the Scout national website...

Thanks for the info. The Plain Dealer link appears to be outdated too. I'll get to the changes in a bit.

The Indians links have been changed.

If anyone sees any other obsolete links or has suggestions for new ones, that information is appreciated.

And yeah, I know that the Astros are still listed in the National League. [smile]

If anyone happens to know of a good organizational site for minor league affiliate injury tracking, I'd find that useful. The best I've been able to find is just the MiLB rosters.
