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.”
