one of the premier fantasy sites, www.rotowire.com (also www.rotonews.com ) went pay a bit back too. Advertising on the web just don't cut it anymore, unfortunately. Hence, the 'viewer' pays.

Just tell me when and where...

Ross -- Why don't you start Smith's collaborative stat-blog, bastich? Since you clearly don't work for a living, might as well do something useful on company time.... No seriously, it's time the rest of the world tasted the exquisite pain of the Fat Man....

The Baseball Primer is a pretty good free alternative to the Prospectus.

A thread on Baseball Primer's Clutch Hits is full of complaints about the new Prospectus's opaque methodologies, errors, changes in data categories, idiosyncratic player selections, indifference to the need for peer review, etc., etc. Were they really ready to start charging people for this thing? Reader psychology changes fast when a credit card gets involved.

Colby, et al -- I've been hitting the baseballprimer.com pretty heavy lately, and I must say I do not find it lacking. (It's improved greatly since last time I spent much time there, that's for sure.) A combo of Primer, plus the still-free injury reports at the Prospectus, are meeting my needs pretty well right now, and I haven't even gone totally deep with free site....
