All the teams. All the players. All the important information. Only the Baseball Prospectus contains complete analyses of every top player in each organization all the way down to rookie ball and does so with objective, intelligent commentary and irreverent humor. The Prospectus gives you the final word on what the players did, why they did it, and what they're going to do in the future. It's the baseball annual that last year --
-- Predicted the continued improvement of relatively unknown players Geremis Gonzalez, Mike Cameron, Shannon Stewart, Ramon Garcia, Steve Woodard, Scott Rolen, Chris Carpenter, Bill, Kerry Lightenberg, Jaret Wright, Aaron Small, Bill Mueller, Ken Cloude, and Matt Stairs;
-- Forecast the decline of such stars as Cecil Fielder, Albert Belle, Ryne Sandberg, Ron Gant ("a prime candidate to flop immediately"), and Terry Steinbach ("a good bet to crash and burn"); and
-- Warned of the collapse of the San Diego Padres organization and the upsurge of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The equally prescient 1998 edition also contains entertaining essays on every team, a review of '97, and articles on special-interest topics, especially rotisserie baseball. It features Clay Davenport's exclusive Davenport Translations, which compare performances across leagues and ballparks, and Gary Huckabay's Vladimir Projections, the most accurate hitting statistics available.
