If you didn’t know already, SBNation now has regional sites that consolidate all the latest news from the sports blogs of a particular region in addition to hitting you with fun rumors and gossip about your local players. Writers from local Bay Area sports blogs are the contributors to the new SBNation Bay Area site so you know you’ll get the inside scoop from those from the inside!
