    Hey guys,

    I've just joined a fantasy baseball league and I'm not only new to fantasy baseball, but pretty much to baseball itself (used to follow it several years ago).

    I was wondering if any of you guys could point me (if you don't want to spill your secrets to your league mates, you can send me a message) towards maybe a site or two that would be the baseball equivalent of Dobber's and maybe something equivalent to Dobber's guides. My draft is next week and I need to brush up on who's who.

    Thanks!

    Well I mean you can go to any of Rotoworld, ESPN, CBS or Yahoo. They all have great experts, articles and rankings that should help you out.

    I recommend rotoworld forums as they are very active and a lot of people comment on a lot of players. There are player threads in one section, and another section where you can ask about your league. What I like about it compared to many others is that they are just like us - regular fantasy players (some more hardcore than others) helping each other. Similar to this site.

    Razzball can also give you some different perspectives but it is more article/ranking based, which a comment section on each article (with questions often not related to the article). I believe they have forums as well, but don't think they are very active.
