Web "portal" pages are, in effect, meta-links: a portal page is one designed as a "doorway" to a great number of related other sites.
The Cape Cod League (an important college-level summer league)
The Alaska League (another important college-level summer league)
(The Batter's Box site has a very helpful mini-review of baseball-stat sites available.
Most or all of these get their actual stats data from either MLB or Stats, Inc., but you may like the layout and presentation, or the news coverage, of one more than another. Also note that while we list them for having current stats, most or all also have good historical-stats facilities.
Not from corporate giants, but often the best around.
There are some awfully nice sites here.
Many of the major commercial sites listed above will also have minor-league data; these are simply some supplemental listings.
Baseball Think Factory (not solely analysis, but useful)
The Baseball Guru (link is to analysis subsection of site)
The Hardball Times (link is to analysis subsection of site)
These are all within the "SB Nation" family of forums.
Nowadays, more and more people want to watch ballgames—or at least get pitch-by-pitch live recountings—than ever before. That accompanies a dramatic rise in the download speed available to most people now, and a plethora of resources for live coverage is now available.
Note that there are numerous online sources that purport to offer free live streaming of baseball (and most other sports) games. Most or all offer links to streams from overseas that are carrying U.S.-based sources; that is probably illegal copyright violation, and we do not list any of them here.
MLB TV: available as standard ($60 a season)or premium ($80 a season); note that "blackout and other restrictions apply", meaning that their "every game" claim is tainted.
CBS Sportsline: very complete--even a pitch-location display.
ESPN Scoreboard: another very nice display, though apparently (like almost all ESPN on-line things) prone to glitches.
Fox Sports/MSN: shows count, but only refreshes every 30 seconds (at fastest setting).
In addition, FanGraphs has interesting in-game analytic statistics and graphs; it's worth a look.
There is also a set of live minor-league scoreboards available at the official Minor-League Baseball site.
