3hree Things: Must-Haves For Unapologetic Baseball Geeks

Watch out for 3hree Things every Tuesday, where Riley Breckenridge, drummer of Orange County's favorite local alt-rock band Thrice, gives his take on life in Southern California as an OC native.

If you're a baseball superfan like me, your GeekMeterâ„¢ has probably been in the red since Spring Training opened in mid-February. And now, with the regular season underway, that geekery has likely increased tenfold. Your GeekMeterâ„¢ has been probably pinned for the better part of two weeks. Much to to the dismay of our respective friends and family, this will be the case for the next six months or so. But there's only one way to true geekery, and if you're an entry-level geek who's looking to step it up this year, I thought I'd share a few ways for you to get there beyond just watching games via your local cable provider and heading out to the yard for a few games this season.

Consider this your geekery tool box...

1) MLB.tv Premium
My lady got me the MLB.tv Premium subscription as an anniversary gift, and while I'm pretty sure it's one of man's greatest technological achievements, I'm also a little scared that having the ability to watch every game, at any time, anywhere, by simply gluing my face to my iPhone, iPad, laptop, desktop or Apple TV is going to drive her insane by, oh...May. I'll spare you the hard sell, and let you read about all of the amazing details of the features available in the premium package (DVR, in-game highlights and stats, full game archives, picture-in-picture/splitscreen viewing, etc) on your own volition. I have to say (relationship danger aside) that this is, without question, the best $125 a baseball fan can spend.

I decided to get an online subscription to Baseball America for the 2012 season. Working for a AA team, I like to have some information on the teams and players that come through and it seemed like BA had more in-depth coverage of prospects and minor league business in general when compared to Baseball Prospectus

I would add a Slingbox as a must have. With it I can watch all Dodgers & Angels games plus baseball on ESPN, FOX, MLB Network, TBS, and WGN on my iPhone, iPad and laptop with no monthly subscriptions!
