This book takes a while to love. You must put in the time to know what eash stat means. If you put in the time, the book is very rewarding for the Fantasy and Computer Replay fanatics. The blurbs for each player are useful as well for those that do not want to put in the time to decode the system. The only flaw I see in the book at all is that the author appears to deny the existence of Mike Trout, although some wise editor put him on the cover.

It's the statistical analysis for fantasy-baseball junkies everywhere. It's pretty easy to understand, and gives you projections based on historical probability. Pretty awesome stuff. And they explain it all so you and I (non-mathematicians) can understand.

If you need to get through the off-season with a smile, or just need to plan your draft strategy - this is better, more thorough information than you're going to find on the grocery store shelves.

If your looking for something with a summation about each player and an auction value you should just go buy a magazine. If you put the time in with this book it will be a valuable tool come draft day.

By Amazon Customer on February 7, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book, along with the Baseball Prospectus, sets the gold standard for review of the 2013 season and the forecast for the 2014 season.

Shandler's Forecaster crew is dedicated to deconvoluting the actual season results to predict future performance. This book is loaded with statistical ratios and metrics to show the various influences of luck, age, skill, or changes in approach. Simply a must-have for any Fantasy player or professional team's player evaluation department.

If your tired of reading the "experts" opinions, this book can be a great new tool for you. It uses formulas ( some really complicated) to back up their opinions. Batters and pitchers are separated with little notes for each player. If you can't decide between two players during your draft this book will help you choose quickly.Dominate your league with a different voice that no one else has.
