I believe my favorite part of this book is how well it is written. Each player capsule is written in great detail but not cluttered with statistical abbreviations no one can understand. In my opinion, Baseball America is the premier baseball publication available and their yearly books are tremendous extensions of their superb magazine (another recommendation) and their website.
This book is also being billed as, "The Secret Weapon for Fantasy League Success." As a long-time fantasy baseball participant, I guess I agree with that to a point. I believe it depends upon the type of league in which you participate. If your league offers the opportunity to draft minor league players that can be carried on your roster from one season to the next...then this book will be a great weapon in your fantasy arsenal. If your league is a complete redraft, and not a keeper, then the rookies that will come into play in 2007 will be covered in any fantasy baseball magazine.Read more ›
The book takes a look at the top 30 prospects for each team, and offers detailed scouting reports on each. I bought the book for the first time last year, and plan to keep old copies around to see, long term, how good the scouting reports turn out to be in terms of where players project. So far so good, as the '05 edition was spot on with most of it's projections.
If you happen to live in an area with a minor league team, this book is great for getting to know who's who on both your team, and the compeition.
I recommend looking in the book to see how many of a MLB team's Top 30 Prospects are on one team at a given time.
If not, it's great to look at your favorite teams Top 30 and see who's the next prospect at a given position, etc.
If your must have list of baseball books does not already include this book, I recomment that you add it. You will not be disappointed.
Since I live in Hawaii, I also take this book to the Hawaii Winter League Games to I can get an idea of who I am watching (makes the whole experience 75 times more enjoyable). I feel it also helps with my fantasy baseball team, though if you took a look at my rankings, you wouldn't even notice it. But I was on to Hunter Pence before everyone else because of this book.
Mets in 2007!
My biggest beef is that the book seems to have been rushed through the editing process. While the information is definitely top quality, the writing that presents the information certainly is not. The grammar utilized throughout the book is spotty in numerous places and can somewhat detract from the information presented. My recommendation to Baseball America would be to obtain a higher quality editing process for the 2008 edition of this wonderful tome of information.
