Fangraphs, Baseball Prospectus and Baseball-Reference are the best websites. Maybe toss Brooks Baseball in there too.
I would suggest reading Baseball Between the Numbers
, which is a book published by Baseball Prospectus. There is also Extra Innings: More Baseball Between the Numbers
. Another essential is The Book
by Tom Tango and crew. The Numbers Game
by Alan Schwarz is great for learning the history behind the traditional stats and why the new ones are better. Those are the best ones for getting a good, solid introduction to sabermetrics. Actually that is more than a solid introduction it is a solid education that is actually fun and interesting too.
