Ode to Strat-o-Matic. Steve Treder: "I still have every Strat-o-Matic card my brother and I ever bought, packed away in various boxes somewhere in my house. I hardly ever haul them out and look at them any more, but when I do it's a guaranteed great time. I have countless folders filled with scoresheets and stat summaries from the various teams and seasons I played in Strat. They are of no use or value to anyone except me, but the sentimental significance they hold for me is truly impossible to describe. It's essentially my boyhood and adolescence, in #2 pencil." (The Hardball Times)

A Paean to APBA. Studes: "APBA cards are the essence of baseball; they are baseball logic made explicit, there for the eye to see and the mind to comprehend. No computer simulation game, with its hidden code and logic, can impart so much understanding." (The Hardball Times)

The New Bleacher Bums. A good article about sabermetrically-inclined fans and writers. (Seattle Weekly)
