Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Unlike most annual statistics books, the Baseball Prospectus includes a brief textual analysis for each player and full write-ups for all the teams, including the two new expansion teams. The player stats are pared down to the basics of hitting and fielding, and also include predictions for the 1998 season. The team write-ups are lively, recapping the 1997 season and offering likely scenarios for 1998.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on August 7, 1999
Format: Paperback
The one reviewer made the comment that any such book should use "real" stats, instead of adjusted. That defies all principles of statistical analysis! Such an approach would render the book useless, and the reviewer's comments should be struck from this collection of reviews because that reviewer is obviously unqualified.
I found the book incredibly useful, because the author made every attempt to render accurate information.

Format: Paperback
This book, and every one in the series is great. Great tips, insight and humour covering all the teams in MLB and every minor league "prospect". A must have for rotisserie league participants.

Format: Paperback
Fantastic reference book for the fantasy baseball owner, provides honest evaluations of each teams organization and not just the high-profile players. Provides interesting projections and is willing to take risks - does not say that every player is the best or greatest - in fact is highly critical of most players reserving superlatives for super players. Well worth the money - just don't share with your fellow fantasy league team owners.

By A Customer on March 5, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book is the best of both worlds. It offers by far the best analysis of players' current and future abilities to keep any roto/simulation player happy. It is also a highly entertaining read for anyone who is interested in baseball, fantasy player or not. There is no reason not to get this book if you're interested in baseball

Nothing this interesting since Bill James stopped writing the Baseball Annuals. Provides a measuring stick between all players in the last few years along with projections for this year, adjusted to include ballpark effects. And this year they added projections for pitchers. A book I use to draft for both my strat-o-matic and fantasy leagues and have done very well with. Highly recommended.
