    Hey all, I'm desperately looking for a resource for daily updated game stats for MLB games. As much data and stats as live as possible.

    Anybody have any idea where to get/buy this data? I need it for a site ASAP.

    Nah, I was hoping to find a paid source where I wouldn't have to scrape. Thanks though buddy. Tons of other fantasy sites use daily game and player data... I was hoping there is SOMEBODY selling the data. Haven't found any place yet.

    Well there you go man. Scrape the data and you could be the person filling the void in this competitive niche.

    I'm certain there are providers, but scraping does still seem like a viable solution IF you can't adequately identify a better source for this information. The best thing about the scraping is the price of course, but you know what you need here.

    Maybe MLB has some sort of API?


    Here is an article from 2012 detailing how a guy accomplished this in the past using free sources at first, and then moving to paid options. It is quite informative.

    Here is the query I ran to find this information:

    https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=mlb+live+stats+provider+api

    I hope you will find your provider soon.
