Not worth buying,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Baseball Prospectus 2012 (Paperback)
Third straight year I bought this, and every year, I am frustrated after buying it. The information can be good but it's not very friendly for the average person to use.
On the back cover, they make these claims about how they predicted Player X's breakout or decline, but they make assertions on over 1000 players and they're right about 5-10 guys. Whats more- you can't even tell who they're talking about unless you go through all 500 pages or so and read everyone's profile and try to understand what those % mean.
My review is from the POV of a fantasy baseball fan who wants to pick up the book and have the information easily available to me. If you're like me, you're better off with one of those baseball magazines than buying this. Or, you could use fangraphs.com for information that is easier to use.
I will not be buying this anymore.
