The bestselling annual baseball preview from the smartest analysts in the business

The essential guide to the 2013 baseball season is on deck now, and whether you're a fan or fantasy player—or both—you won't be properly informed without it. Baseball Prospectus 2013 brings together an elite group of analysts to provide the definitive look at the upcoming season in critical essays and commentary on the thirty teams, their managers, and more than sixty players and prospects from each team.

  • Contains critical essays on each of the thirty teams and player comments for some sixty players for each of those teams
  • Projects each player's stats for the coming season using the groundbreaking PECOTA projection system, which has been called "perhaps the game's most accurate projection model" (Sports Illustrated)
  • From Baseball Prospectus, America's leading provider of statistical analysis for baseball

Now in its eighteenth edition, this New York Times bestselling insider's guide remains hands down the most authoritative and entertaining book of its kind.

    "not to mention, a critical essay on each of the sixty big league teams." Not to mention, there are only thirty! Hey, why no nook version? There's a kindle version. I loved the 2012 edition; it reminded me of the old Bill James Abstracts that were such fun for a baseball geek.
