    Amazon has priced?

    Very interesting. I just subscribed and will certainly evaluate this during the 14-day trial period. I enjoy the Fangraphs subscription as well, and yes, I know this information is all available free online, but not everywhere you go has wireless access – airplane, Dr. offices, etc. and it’s great to be able to have this stuff downloaded to the Kindle and available for offline reading anytime.

    Very nice and unexpected surprise Tim.

  3. Still no Android love, Timmy? :<

    • The two are unrelated…to put a blog on Kindle takes about 5-10 minutes, Amazon controls the vast majority of it. To develop an Android app is a process, and we want ours to be awesome right out of the gate. It is in development now and will be out within a few months. I don’t like to put dates on stuff but if it’s not out by the trade deadline something went wrong. I am hoping for May but don’t hold me to it.

        I will go out on a limb and request that MLBTR develop an app for the Windows Phones. Yes, I actually have one.

          Exquisite. I have a Droid Incredible, but I wanted a Samsung Focus. My sister’s friend had it, and the screen almost caused an eyegasm.

          • vtadave 4 years ago

            I have the Focus…great phone.

      • You have just made my year.

        Really I was just wanting to hear something about it, that it wasn’t going to be abandoned. Saying May, deadline at latest barring nuclear winter… sounds amazing to me.

        Really though, it just caught me off-guard, trying to imagine the masses demanding “MLBTR ON KINDLE, NOW!.”

        I will agree with vtadave and inquire as to whether or not WP7 will be receiving an app. If I ever manage to get ahold of one, it might be the only app in the world that I would consider purchasing.

    Good job, MLBTR.

  7. Tim, I know this is way off topic, and I’m not even sure you have any sort of ties to other sports, but can you please create a trade rumors site for other sports. I love MLBTR. It really is the only good site for up to date rumors and is very well layed out. Sports such as basketball, football, and hockey have no good sites to keep up with trade rumors. I’ve searched around and there is nothing comparable. Great job with this site and I’m sure I’m not the only one that would like to see similar sites for the other major sports. Keep up the good work!!

      Check out Hoops Hype for NBA rumors….

    • We’ve got some cool plans for 2011, but our focus is entirely on baseball. I think we could make a good basketball site one day, but it’s not on the radar right now.

    Just checked it out. Looks nice on the Kindle but it should really be free.

    • vtadave 4 years ago

      This is Amazon you’re talking about though. Same site that charges as much or close to as much for the Kindle version as they do for a hardback book. Yes, I know that the publishers also drive the Kindle prices, but I would think Amazon also has some control here.

      • cubs223425 4 years ago

        They are also the place that sells $10-15 CDs for $3-5 on a frequent basis, so it’s not all bad.

        • vtadave 4 years ago

          Very true. I buy a ton of stuff on Amazon, but the Kindle prices are often ridiculous.

    • There’s only three sentence in the post, but let’s review the middle one: “Amazon has priced the subscription at $1.99 per month.”

      Amazon has priced the subscription. Amazon has agreed to provide the format for it, why should they do it for free? What would they gain for that? Would you let some random person store a bunch of files on your home computer for free just taking up your space for their benefit. It’s a business, their purpose is to make money.

      • Realizing now that that first sentence sounds more jerkish than I intended. Sorry about that, I should really read before I post.

      • Gibbys_Limp 4 years ago

        I’m not about to “let some random person store a bunch of files on home computer”, period.

      • cubs223425 4 years ago

        Random? I guess that depends on what and why. If a classmate wanted to store a paper on my computer or something, I’d have no problem with that. If some stranger on the street walked up and asked if I’d put his porn on my PC? Probably not.

    Amazon has no control over book prices at all. Google “Agency Agreement” and you will see that.
    Blog subscriptions are another story.
    I love my Kindle…to read books. The convenience make up for any price issue. If I would pay for the hardcover I would pay for the electronic version.
    I don’t need blog subscriptions though because I can read them online or on my phone.

    I am in agreement with those asking for a Windows Phone app. I, too, have one, as does my wife. We both love MLBTR!!

    its hard to tell when someones bein sarcastic on the internet

  15. Seriously? It’s for reading books using e-ink. Nothing like an iPad.

  16. not_brooks 4 years ago

    Are you being sarcastic?

  17. Guest 4 years ago

    no, are you?

  18. Guest 4 years ago

    obviously not if mlbtr will be on it. last i checked this isnt a book.

  19. I don’t even know anymore.

  20. No, are you?

  21. I’m sorry, let me restate:

    A device that uses e-ink, originally intended to be used as a mass-distribution of books very quickly and at a cheap price. Now the uses have expanded to things like blog updates.

  22. Guest 4 years ago

    and vtadave stands for stuck up yankee fan, right?

  23. Guest 4 years ago

    your gettin way to worked up about me calling the kindle a ghetto ipad. relax (:

  24. vtadave 4 years ago

    Nope, Dodgers fan here.

  25. Guest 4 years ago

    Im sorry, let me restate:

    Does vtadave stand for stuck up dodgers fan? you always seem to have a problem with me. did i do something to you. it seems like you alone use the 99 problems joke about once a week.

  26. I’m “worked up” because it’s a completely uninformed and untrue statement.

  27. Watching you two bicker is the highlight of my MLBTR-week.

  28. vtadave 4 years ago

    I honestly don’t remember the last time I “used the 99 problems joke”. You’re just an easy target is all.

    The Kindle is ugly, and everyone who owns a Kindle is ugly.


  30. cubs223425 4 years ago

    IDK about that, but I will say that the iPad is stupid and that everyone that buys Apple is stupid.

    Trolololol, I do hate Apple, though.

  31. Bonesaw McGraw 4 years ago

    I couldn’t agree with you more.
