If you want sabermetric analysis and projections, check out Shandler's Forecaster. If you want sharp analyses of each MLB organization look at the Baseball Prospectus.
"Graphical Player 2010" has an incredible amount of data, presented in a somewhat unique style along with commentary on more than 1,000 current baseball players provided by bloggers who cover their teams - and edited by Burnson with some help from Rob McQuown and Michael Street.
Now, it's been years since I was a serious fantasy baseball enthusiast. In fact, I pretty much dropped the game after the 2000 season. But, had Graphical Player been around back then, it would have been a "must-have" for me at that time - and I would recommend that "Graphical Player 2010" is a must-have for the serious fantasy baseball franchise owner today.
O.K., that said, even if you're not a roto-head, many will still derive a lot of use out of "Graphical Player 2010." Why? Well, if you're a baseball fan, and someone who's into sabermetrics, you will find "Graphical Player 2010" to be both pleasing and intellectually stimulating. It's just full of fun stats like xFIP, wOBA, and Wins Above Replacement - as well as stats that cover a player's component skills, how luck may have impacted his stats, and, for pitchers, the strength of the teams he faced.
This book is great fun. Again, the "Graphical Player 2010" is a must-have for the diligent fantasy baseball competitor and a treasure trove of sabermetric data for the thinking baseball fan - and highly recommend here.
All the numbers you need plus eyewitness info. What more does the would-be fantasy league winner need?
