Format: Paperback
The newest edition of the Forecaster continues the sabremetric work developed over the last few decades. They've added a Dom/Dis ratio for hitters this year in an effort to gauge reliability, but otherwise, it's mostly the same great annual guide as previously printed.

The opening essays are all relevant and updated. I recommend reading them as you would read a book - from front to end even if you can't resist jumping ahead to look at individual players.

One complaint - they published an essay on new standards for LIMA evaluation, but then used the old numbers in their own charts. Presumably, this will be corrected in updates on their website.

The one book to buy, even if you're having more than one!

Another great update, although i might buy it direct from their website next year so i can get the pdf and spreadsheet data included.

Been meaning to buy this book for years. Instead, I've been wasting money on magazines. A must have for fantasy baseballers.

When I get Baseball Forecaster I know that the next baseball season has started. It arrives in the fall and by winter it is dog eared and has notes scrawled in the margins as I look carefully at his special statistical analysis of pitchers and position players. Usually spot on. Anyone who plays fantasy must have this.

I have bought this book for the last three years and find it very useful in preparing for fantasy baseball drafts. It did help me win one league last year.

This book is certainly a resource that I would recommend to baseball fans, but I feel that it lacks the depth of other publications such as Baseball Prospectus. It certainly has interesting statistics and it is chock full of information, but there is a certain element that I can't quite put my finger on that makes me prefer BP to this book.

This is personally my favorite book for helping me draft my fantasy baseball team. Lots of sleepers, nice to see the trends of players and use sabermetrics to predict each players future output. Shipped just fine and book was exactly as advertised.

No other product provides the in depth detail that the Baseball Forecaster provides. Stats, strategy, insight. Everything you need to prepare for you draft or auction.

Love this book. The writer builds off of previous years' analyses, but you can easily jump in at any time as he repeats the essence of previous analyses. Great stuff!
