Welcome to Bill James Online

This is the "public" part of Bill James Online.   Bill James Online is a place where people pay $3 a month to discuss baseball, sports and other topics.  But there are plenty of features even if you don't subscribe.
Check out our latest feature: Starting Pitcher Rankings.  Fully available to the public and updated every day.
The subscription portion of the site looks and feels much like this part, but a) contains ten or twenty times as much information, b) also contains some other features, and c) gives you the opportunity to interact with us—to pose questions for "Hey, Bill," to post articles, to comment on articles, etc.  If you’re interested in joining us or if you have additional questions, you can use the "Contact Us" link at the top. If not, enjoy the site anyway.
