With no collective bargaining agreement in place, MLB Trade Rumors may be headed toward a much quieter December and January than usual in terms of traffic and ad revenue. If you’re a long-haul MLBTR regular, we’d love your consideration for an ad-free subscription. It’s the best way to offer direct support for the hard work that goes into things like our Top 50 Free Agents list, arbitration projections, and offseason outlooks.
While we’d love your support, we’re not looking for charity, and we work hard to provide extra value to subscribers. The benefits include:
- Ad-free viewing experience
- Exclusive member-only online chats with our MLB writers every week
- MLBTR owner Tim Dierkes answers mailbag questions
- Exclusive weekly hot stove articles from Steve Adams and Anthony Franco
- Subscriber-only discussion forum

Does that $3/mth cover Pro Football rumors, too? $3 is pretty cheap for what you provide, imo.
It covers all four sites.
Here’s my money. Thanks for everything you guys do!
Now I have another issue. I click on the $2.99 banner to become a supporter. It asks me for my email, then my password. Since I have never needed a password, I asked to reset. I have done it 3 times and have yet to receive a reset email.
And, why is it even asking me to log in? Shouldn’t take me to a payment page first?
Btw, I am on my IPad,
I’ll send you an email and we’ll figure it out. Sorry for the difficulties.
I like how they delete any negative comments. Why pay for something that’s free? Plus this site is just rumors so you’d pay for something that’s 99% false. Plus all the ads I think you guys make your money
The benefits that members receive have been posted on here numerous times as well as positive comments from many members. And if you have a problem with rumors, then you probably shouldn’t follow MLB Trade Rumors,

Face it, @Marsh.
You’re just a cheapskate.

I was literally thinking about subscribing and I see some people already have so at least some people are subscribing, but I am actually on twitter a lot and most of what this site does is pull together a bunch of random twitter stuff into one cohesive gathering place for easy digestion. So I am not sure if I will subscribe or not but I am still thinking about it. Sometimes it seems like the people with that little badge are mean to nonsubscribers but I wouldn’t want to be like that. It’s like you think because you have a little badge that you’re in the club or something, when really you’re just showing off. But that’s just me, I’m actually not sure what other people think. Plus I don’t know how much I would use the other sites besides baseball because I literally follow baseball more than any other sport. I could see if I was a big basketball or football or hockey fan that the subscription would literally become twice as valuable, but honestly it’s a good price because there isn’t really that much clickbait here compared to other sites, and I like the people here mostly.
Sorry you have that impression. I kinda find that snarky comes with or without the “badge”. But that aside, I think it’s been worth it. Dierke’s mailbag is great. Very well thought out answers. And I love not seeing ads.
“Why pay for something that’s free?” – completely missing the point and a sign-of-the-times. Contribute.
“Free” is a myth.

The word Rumors is literally in the name, so you aren’t breaking any news. That said, if you are a baseball nerd like me, it is worth considering, especially as I am a huge hockey fan as well.
Guess I might be a sheep as well. Baaaaaaa

The extra content is actually really good.
The mail bag is excellent & the articles tend to travel a little further afield than the usual. Both in length & subject matter.
Personally, I feel that content should be on the “regular” site. I think they would generate more clicks.
If it was my decision, I would have the membership be a thank you & a car decal or snapback hat. Maybe a quarterly newsletter. That’s basically what you get for your membership to the Ruffed Grouse Society or Ducks Unlimited, or whatever. The real strength of those is being able to compare notes with other like minded guys in your area or nationally. Which is pretty much the best part of @MLBTR too.
