Many MLBTR readers have been asking for a monthly subscription option, as a way of making a smaller commitment or testing out the service. We now have that option.
As you can see on our member benefits page, you can now subscribe to Trade Rumors Front Office for $2.99 per month. The better value is our annual subscription, now priced at $29.89 per year. Basically, subscribing annually gives you two months free as compared to the monthly option. Once you’re signed up, if you’d like to turn off the auto-renew, just go here.
If you choose to support MLBTR with a paid subscription, you’ll get the removal of ads on the website and app as well as exclusive articles and chats from our writers. Subscribe today!
Good for y’all! I hope this is inviting to more people!
29.99 or 29.89?
Either way, like the monthly option – especially for some who might choose to contribute during baseball season for example.
$29.89 – I dropped a dime from the annual price to make it truly two months free as compared to the $2.99 monthly. So for those who paid the $29.99, I apologize!
Thanks Tim, I will be subscribing once my cheque arrives! This is a huge benefit to me to be able to only have to budget 2.99 off of my fixed income!! I am assuming this is US Funds?
Id like to buy bluejay1977 a yearly subscription. How can we make that happen
you are a good soul!
AAHHH, Nev, that is so nice of you!! but not necessary. when i get my pension cheque I can easily afford to pay 3 bucks!
It’s worth a lot more than 29.89. When I order non-cardboard pizza for my family it’s $50 dollars.
Along with Baseball Reference and Fangraphs, this is one of three sites I wouldn’t want to live without.
Honestly, I wouldn’t have had an issue paying for this site before. I’m surprised it’s ever been free considering how good it is.
I want my dime back! 😉
I have been an avid reader of your site since inception, so I gladly pay for membership. Continued excellence in the New year and beyond to you and all members of the writing team. Great job by all…thank you…..
I was thinking about gifting a subscription to someone.. is there an easy way to do that?
What content will we miss if we dont subscribe?
Pay the 2.99 one month to find out!
I get emails at least two or three times a day with private chats and special write-ups.
They really put in the time giving subscribers extra content.
I meant to say two or three times a week. Not a day. My bad.
I have an email today for example that I just finished reading covering topics from the DH to the Padres extending Tatis.
The Padres didn’t extend him, did they? Just speculation, right?
Answering a question about the possibility.
Awesome site I read it anytime I am on the computer. Totally worth dropping $2.99 a month.
Is anyone gonna step up to do videos since Jeff left? I subscribed to the YouTube channel but there hasn’t been any videos for months. With almost 5K subscribers some new vids would be cool.
Not a complaint, just a simple question.
FredMcGriff for the HOF
@ironballs, Jeff Todd left MLBTR?
Pretty sure he left to start his own business. I think it’s called Roanoke biking adventures or something like that.
Unfortunately Jeff did leave his full-time position to run this shop:
But, we’ve still got Jeff in the fold on a part-time shift once a week. Better than nothing!
That’s something I have in the works, hopefully weekly videos starting in the new year.
Who would pay for this? Not like same news isn’t elsewhere..gtfo I’d rather buy a slim Jim
This site puts out so much quality content for free, They have given me more than $30/yr worth of content since I started reading this site back in 2007.
While some of this news can be found in expanded form elsewhere, it is compiled here and the write ups and attention to detail are top notch. Plus, obviously the retrospective looks, previews, outlooks, poll write ups, etc.
You are selling this site short. So, if you think you can find your content just as well elsewhere, I quote my boy Ice Cube… “Bye, Felicia”.
Will I get even more Blue Jays rumors if I subscribe? I’m not getting enough at the moment.
Why not give a 1 year for $12 to start, The Athletic did it
Hard to walk with four balls
ZERO people asked to pay for something they weren’t paying for.
You’d be surprised. Some people really appreciate this content and feel compelled to give back to something that has given them much.
I feel this way.
Hard to walk…. like TV?
It use to be free. This site is a much better value.
People wonder why our legacy news outlets are so far gone and dysfunctional. The “free” model for the reader, subsidized by advertisements, completely warps the incentives of the publisher.
Happy to support a unique site which i have been an avid reader of for over a decade now. Some of these comments are deeply troubling.
Forget those comments. Some people are just born malcontents.
Happy to be part of the team!
Love this site, I will totally support it
This is one of my fav. websites to read (along w. The Athletic & FanGraphs), so $30/yr is a steal for how much great original content and aggregation of the newest information you all provide. I hope all of the regular MLBTR readers consider a yearly subscription to support the site.
Just bought a membership and will gladly support this site in anyway I can. As others have mentioned, the content here is unmatched and the fee for a year’s membership is very affordable. Keep up the great work that you all do on here and I am glad to now be an official member!
Can you provide examples of previous members-only articles?
They get e-mailed to you. They aren’t articles you can comment on. One I got recently was about the teams that could trade for Trevor Story. Good stuff, but they are just e-mailed to the subscriber.
You also get ad-free articles (which is nice).
But my favorite parts are the subscriber only chats and mailbags. You e-mail questions in to the mailbag and they do essentially an eight question Q&A style round up. The chats are (of course) subscriber only, so there are way higher chances your questions get answered, and honestly, the questions are better quality too lol.
It’s worth it.
As an incentive, you should let the premium members comment on the domestic violence and other “closed for comments” articles.
As a paid subscriber, I have no interest in that. Even The Athletic closes those articles.
Although I do find the idea of only paid subscribers being able to comment intriguing.
For me…. I think not!!!
It would be a cluster fudge… eventually lead to that mostly and little baseball.
