SB Nation Launches Baseball Nation

SB Nation is putting its big hire Rob Neyer to good use starting today, as the company launches Baseball Nation. The site will cover everything baseball, led by Neyer and a team of bloggers that includes minorleagueball.com founder John Sickels, and team bloggers Jeff Sullivan and Grant Brisbee, who will assume a more national beat.

“We’ve quite simply always been the leader of coverage in baseball on a team-by-team basis and now with Rob Neyer leading the coverage at Baseball Nation, we’ll be the leader on a national level,” said SB Nation founder Tyler Bleszinski in a blog post.

In many respects the site is aiming to be a new type of baseball site. Driven by what the fans are interested in, but featuring professional quality content. And yes, visitors can contribute as well.

“Seriously (for the moment) … We’re all in this thing together. Tell us what we’re doing right, tell us what we’re doing wrong, and … just tell us whatever’s on your mind,” wrote Neyer in a post. “We are you. You are us. We live in a brave new world.”
