99 Fantasy Baseball Twitter Accounts You Should Follow

99 Fantasy Baseball Twitter Accounts You Should Follow

Why post a list of Fantasy Baseball Twitter accounts? Well, for several reasons – first of which is that Twitter is an invaluable source of information for Fantasy Baseball owners. Secondly, because these guys do great work in trying to assist nearly every owner that asks them a question. (See my post on “How to Get Fantasy Writers to Answer Your Questions.”)

Last summer, I posted the Top 66 Fantasy Football Twitter Accounts You Should Follow, and it was a very popular post. I think mostly because I tried to explain why you should follow a lot of these guys.

This will be an ever-growing list for several reasons. First, I’m sure I forgot friends of mine for whatever reason (I’m a dope?). And secondly, writers/readers will be letting me know which Fantasy Baseball Twitter Accounts that are awesome and I just don’t know.

Matthew Berry, Twitter

I was going to write an article about how Fantasy Baseball readers can use Twitter, then I happened upon this article by Brien Bonneville at TheFakeBaseball.com. Then I thought, “Man, I could just clip-and-paste this whole thing!!!” In the end, I decided to just link to it instead. And for that article, give that man a follow @BBonneville! (He writes about the fake baseball, too.)

Most of the Twitter accounts below are writers, and I tried to distinguish between writer accounts and accounts for entire websites or companies. So initially, I didn’t list @theRotoFeed because I thought they were just an RSS feed and they didn’t engage readers. Then they yelled at me!


@ Wow, dude. 11K followers, 1,000 referrals per day to the rest, and I don’t crack the top 99? #hurtbyomission
@therotofeed
Fantasy Baseball

Now I realize, they DO interact! So follow @theRotoFeed — they have 10k followers and they tweet boatloads o’ Fantasy stuff.

 

My Original Top Fantasy Baseball Twitter Accounts

These are the guys that I posted about last year, and I still think they rank among the best Twittererers for 2013. These guys are no-brainers … Wait, I mean, you should follow them without question … Not that they are no-brained people. Crap.

Matthew Berry, ESPN.com, @MatthewBerryTMR – The face of Fantasy Sports, with a book, “The Fantasy Life,” hitting shelves this coming summer. The only person that knows me and doesn’t know Berry is my mom.

Tristan Cockcroft, ESPN.com, @SultanofStat — Cockcroft was my mentor coming up at CBSSports, which was then CBS.SportsLine.com.

Who knows more about baseball: Emack or Tristan? It’s an arm-wrestling match for the ages!

Jason ColletteRotoWire.comBaseballProspectus.com@JasonCollette  – One of my favorite guys in the industry, and easily one of the smartest. Not just for “Fantasy” baseball, but for the game itself.

Nando Di FinoCBSSports.com@NandoCBS — Nando is one of my closest friends in the industry. We’ve spent many a drunken night in NYC before our Tout Wars drafts. He’s a main character in the best-selling book, FantasyLand, and now he’s one of the hosts of CBSSports.com’s Fantasy Baseball 360 daily videos. If you haven’t checked that out yet, get on it – it’s live every day at 5pm ET.

Ray FlowersBaseballGuys.com@BaseballGuys — Ray does the Fantasy Drive radio show on SiriusXM Radio each afternoon with Kyle Elfrink – easily my favorite Fantasy Baseball time of the day. They’re the best Fantasy show to listen to online, radio or satellite.

Mike GianellaRotoThinkTank.com@MikeGianella — This guy answers a ton of Fantasy Baseball questions every day and he’s usually spot on! Tout Wars, dude, too.

Tim Heaney, KFFL.com, @Tim_Heaney — Yet another good guy coming from the Tout Wars owners. Obvious connection to Fantasy player updates make his Twitter feed a solid mix of articles and player news.

Eric Karabell, ESPN.com, @KarabellESPN — EK has been talking Fantasy Baseball on TV longer than anyone else – and he has one of the best blogs in the biz.

Eric MackSI.com@EricMackFantasy  — Emack is a former co-worker of mine. We both held down the fort on Fantasy Baseball  at CBSSports.com for most of the 2000s. In an earlier column, where I explained he’ll usually answer anything on Twitter. But be forewarned, “… if you ask me a question, don’t bother arguing with my answer. I won’t care what you have to say.”

David Pinto, BaseballMusings.com, @StatsGuru — This guy has been blogging about baseball for over a decade now.

Cory SchwartzMLB.com@SchwartzStops — Nobody answers more Fantasy questions than Cory. Great guy, excellent writer and a proficient Twitterer. He’s also a member of the Tout Wars crazy story guys.

And me – DavidGonos.com, @DavidGonos !!! I tweet about Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Football, TV, Movies, Music and funny things that happen to other people!

Cory Schwartz, Twitter

MLB.com’s Cory Schwartz (@SchwartzStops) got to take a ceremonial Yoo Hoo shower after winning the 2012 Tout Wars Mixed League title. (#jealous)

 

Other Fantasy Baseball Twitter Accounts I’m especially fond of!

Chet Gresham, theFakeBaseball.com, @Chet_G – Came across this guy last year and now I’m kinda convinced he invented Twitter. I’m shocked his Twitter handle isn’t @Twitter. He runs the fake Fantasy sites and once ate a Dorito that was shaped like Olympic gymnast Mary Lou Retton.

Michael Hurcomb, CBSSports.com, @CBSHurc – One of CBS’ finest update editors will keep in you in the know. #BigHurc in the house!

Rob Shaw, BloombergSports.com, @RobShawSports – I go back with this guy to my days at OPENSports. Class act, full of knowledge on both major Fantasy sports, director of content for Bloomberg Sports.

T, FantasyTrade411.com, @WHUDEY — Writes columns, hosts podcasts, tweets and retweets – and he hosts #FridaysWithT which is a narrative story he tells each Friday through several tweets on Twitter.

  2. I just figured out this year after playing fantasy BB with about 12 same guys since 1989, that only an idiot pays to subscribe to a fantasy expert site.I now am in CBS league although through the years we used Stats (best post season) until they went under..

    Obviously these days a moron can win his league by of course luck and just sticking to stuff on CBS. In pre-Internet you had to have some knowledge of baseball but honestly I bet I could know nothing about BB and if you don’t win,at least make a good showing. One year for the hell of it I did this in pro basketball not even knowing 10 players.
    Anyway to get back to whatever boring point I was making, you have taken the idea of spending an hour on Twitter to a new high by listing 99 sites. But who is going to have the time check off each site. Really what do you want? Waiver wire, prospects who are coming up and I really pay little attention to what “expert” I get to as I race through twitter.
    I will say that now after you we’re smart enough to print the list and take care of your friends at the same time, I will make your site my main research tool
    I hope you get this because this is the longest run on mess I have ever written. No joke

    • Thanks! haha, yeah, hand us a good cheatsheet to a Fantasy Soap Opera League and I’m sure we’d end up in the middle of the pack.
