Welcome to Bill James Online

NEW! We are excited to announce that we're beta testing a completely new stats section containing much of data that many of you have asked for (yes, that includes Career Winshares!!). Click here to access it and please be sure to send us your feedback.
As we approach Hall of Fame voting results, we'd like to point your attention in particular to two of the best reports we just added:
  • Bill’s new system called the Hall of Fame Value Standard: Hitters | Pitchers
  • Career Winshares for every player in the history of baseball: Hitters | Pitchers 
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.
