Bill Barnwell and Jonah Keri do excellent work at Grantland for the NFL and MLB, respectively.

I'm on Lookout Landing and Minor League Ball almost as much as I'm on here. Jeff Sullivan from Lookout Landing (and now Fangraphs of late) is one of the best, funniest sportswriters I've ever read. Also, I check out Fangraphs every day to see if they have an article that interests me.

I read both religiously, though, Keri is, to me, the superior writer and he also keeps feet in both wolds.

River Avenue Blues is my go-to place for the Yanks. The commentary is a bit silly (sort of a sports version if EYKIW), but the articles are usually good.

I also like Keri a lot. And Fangraphs gives me the more "national" perspective.

I figured all of us crazy Internet kids would be all about blogs, so I'm surprised none of this have ever come up.

I didn't really get into the SB Nation blog scene until Penn State got fired up this year, so I sort of missed out on the heart of the baseball stuff. I'm sure I'll be looking closer at it come spring training. The NHL Lockout has me even more fired up than normal about the return of baseball.

The Blue Jays are a little presumptuous, apparently:

I like it, it should be for the 2012 season though

It's nice to see one Toronto team with some swagger. Whether it lasts is another issue...

Let's hope Morales doesn't break his fucking leg getting off the plane.

It's fucking amazing what you can accomplish when finals are coming up.

I've started reading more and more blogs lately. I hope my lack of interest in baseball finally dies off this season. Not watching baseball much these last two years has really depressed me...yet I don't watch. A cycle of pain!

The Cubs farm system is getting exciting with guys like Soler, Almorra, and Baez. Also the Rizzo trade was an absolute steal. Sickels does a great rundown of the guys to watch in their system in 2013 here: Chicago Cubs Top 20 Prospects for 2013 - Minor League Ball
