This is a great book for fans and general managers to review current players of how good they are and where they are at. it calculates the last three seasons into one future prospective season and the top 100 rookies in MLB.

I've enjoyed BP annual guides for years, probably gonig back to '99, lots of fun to read and ponder, even as a non-fantasy BB type. However this year inexplicably there is no index. The BP style is to group each player with the team with which they finished the previous year. This makes perfect sense given the late signings that have become common, and with an index it's a snap to find a player you're interested in. however with no index, it's basically impossible! not an issue with famous players, but with younger folks just coming on your radar, you really need that index. oh well, I hope it gets reinstated next year.

Whether you're a casual fan or a fantasy nut, you'll treasure Baseball Prospectus. It provides more stats than you'll ever need or even knew existed. They provide projections of statistical performance that are uncannily accurate. In the past General Managers of professional teams have endorsed this book. If you watch baseball on TV, your viewing experience will be greatly enhanced.
