This still is a good source of information about the skills set of nearly every player who appeared in an ML uniform last season, in articles ranging from a full page to a paragraph in length. (Key players get longer articles, platoon types, middle relievers, and back-of-the-rotation starters get shorter articles, and roster fillers get the paragraphs.) Each team's top five to ten prospects also get a few words. The formula has changed for the worse this year, however, in that the "Stars, Bums, and Sleepers" and Top 50 Prospects lists are gone. In the former, STATS rated players, by position, as up-and-coming, steady, and due-for-a-fall, which might be of value to someone drafting a rotisserie baseball team. In the latter, Baseball America's Jim Callis put together a nice ranking of farm players that always was a bit contrarian compared to some of the other sources most often used by fantasy baseball players. Without those sections, the scouting material just doesn't offer enough, by itself, to justify its hefty price, as some of the annuals appearing at newsstands each spring cover the same waterfront , if not quite in the same depth.
