Best Baseball Blogs in 2024

Long ago, I had an exhaustive list of the best baseball blogs and it was fairly popular. It’s been lost to time, of course, as blogs naturally come and go. But, recently I came across an old bookmark or two of best baseball blogs. It turns out, most of them are gone or haven’t been updated for quite some time. Other best baseball blog lists would claim to be updated for 2022 or 2023, but clearly are not. Therefore, I figured, why not create my own new resource for the Best Baseball Blogs in 2024.

At this point, it seems the interest for blog lists has diminished immensely. But, as there’s certainly interest in lists for fantasy baseball blogs, I decided to do so for “real-life” baseball blogs, too. Even as it seems blogs dying in general, with the world turning more to vlogging and video essays, I find that blogging as a form of content consumption is at this fascinating crossroads. 

So, in creating these lists, I’m trying to preserve whatever blogs remain for the sanity of those who just want to read something without having to sit through an entire video laden with sponsors about Hello Fresh, Manscaped, or whatever.

Yes, even I will eventually succumb to video essay creation, but no matter what, unlike anyone else, I will keep this Best Baseball Blogs resource regularly updated! 

I’m also looking to expand into the best fantasy baseball blogs and the best baseball card websites, both of which deserve a separate page entirely.

As of December 2023, here are the top baseball blogs I’ve found which are still active:
