Overview

Baseball Prospectus provides performance analysis of over 1,600 players -- from today's stars all the way down to rookie ball and 2002 draft picks. If you want the final word on what the players really did, and how well they'll do in the future, you need this book.

This all-new edition introduces Baseball Prospectus's new format, presenting both actual data and performance analysis for every player covered, with adjustments for performances across leagues and ballparks to give you the most accurate analysis of hitting and pitching available.

Baseball Prospectus is the only comprehensive baseball annual that provides depth, insight, and entertainment for both the casual fan looking for a fun read and for the serious fantasy league player who wants to get an edge on the competition.

Every year, it seems like forever until the Prospectus arrives, and every year, it's worth the wait. BP 2003 is better than BP 2002. The team chapters have more meat, are more focused, and are obviously the result of a lot of homework. The player comments are insightful and entertaining, and they finally used real statistics in addition to the equivalencies they've used in the past. Some of the team chapters seem a little negative, but it's probably hard to write something really positive about the Orioles or Devil Rays. The Boston Red Sox essay seems a little out of place, and BP's praise for the Oakland A's gets more out of control each year but it makes sense because they make a lot of good moves. It might be the best Baseball Prospectus ever, and if you're already an addict, you won't get any sleep on the night when it arrives. I enjoy baseball games more because I read this book every year, even in my new locale of Milwaukee.
