View Full Version : If you're gonna subscribe to an insiders website... which one?

Which baseball insider magazine is the best? I know ESPN has an insiders magazine with Olney, and Baseball America has an insiders magazine for the up coming talent. Which magazine has the better content?

I used to be subscribed to ESPN Insiders, but that was because I got it for free with ESPN the Magazine. It wasn't really worth it in my opinion. Olney writes some decent blogs, but nothing spectacular, and hardly ever about the M's.

I like ESPN the Magazine and there are some places I've heard of where you can get it for really cheap and the Insider subscription comes with it. My co-worker has a subscription and doesn't read the magazine much so he just gives them to me because he knows I'm a sports geek. However I agree with Mariners51- it really isn't much, you can get any of their specumation for free on any number of blogs and forums online. Olney is OK. I'm a fan of Keith Law, and most of his articles are behind the subscriber wall. I'm not about to pay for a magazine I get for free just to read his stuff though.
I've always wanted the Baseball America subscription. It's $66 a year though, and I can't do it right now. I subscribe to Prospect Insider because it's almost exclusively M's, Cost me $28 for the whole year, and they do a lot of what I like to read about (just like Baseball America) which is prospect stuff. They do a yearly digital prospect guide that is free with the subscription and unparalleled Mariners prospects and draft coverage.
If it were me and I was deciding between Baseball America and ESPN Insider, I'd definitely go with BA, but then again ESPN is cheaper. I'm planning on asking for the BA subscription for my birthday.
