Note: I've made one change to Tony's list. For the Baltimore Orioles I replaced Orioles Hangout with After reviewing both sites I feel has a greater focus on the Orioles minor league system and prospects.


  1. Sorry Jordan, of all sites to overlook. ;) I corrected that and added a Note explaining why. I'll also send Tony an email pointing out OriolesProspects to him. Both good sites, but your's is more focused on the minors and prospects, which is the whole point of the Prospect Webring.

  2. Not a problem, appreciate it. you also have to pay for Orioles Hangout's minor league content.

    I should be ordering Tony's book soon, enjoy reading his stuff.

    Great idea to make this, the reason team specific sites are better is because they don't onlt focus on the top prospects. You can really find the sleepers and more unknown prospects on sites like yours, mine, Tony's etc.

  3. Thank you for listing these sites....very informative and I really appreciate it.

  4. @ Jordan, I wasn't going to mention the pay-to-see part, but that's definitely a reason to choose OriolesProspects. I should have caught that though, again, sorry. You do a great job.

    Tony's books are incredible. About half as thick as BA's Prospect book, and all about ONE team. Also, his site makes the rest of us look like amateurs. He truly sets the standard, and he's a really nice guy. He's also doing BlogTalkRadio and appears on SportsTimeOhio tv. How does he find the time?

    I agree about the team specific sites being better too, only crazy people like us would spend hours following every team in the org's minor system every day. BA and others do a great job and all, but they really can't match the team specific sites.

    Re your DM on Highes, email Kevin for his thoughts. I never thought much of his chances with the Rays, but Kevin may have some input for OP. Zaun was a good move for us last year, hope Hughes is for you guys this year and forward.

    @Anon, no problem. The idea is to give fans of each MLB team a resource when players in another org come up in trade discussions or the Rule 5 draft rolls around after the season. There was some talk of forming some sort of Prospect Network a year or so ago, but too hard with so many independent kind of sites. You've folks like me who don't like ads, and sites that won't do networks, so it would be hard. But if any entrepreneurial-types out there want to try and figure out a way, let me know.

    To Everyone, please let me know if there are problems you see with the links or quality of the sites listed or if you know of a better one. I want this resource to be of as much value as possible our readers and all of the other sites too.
