Overview

The 2007 edition of the most authoritative guide to professional baseball

America's favorite pastime has never been more popular and, for over a decade, Baseball Prospectus has been the ultimate guide to the game for fantasy players, professionals, and casual fans alike. Baseball Prospectus 2007 continues that tradition, bringing together the top young baseball writers and analysts in the business to provide a definitive look at the season to come. Featuring humorous and incisive essays on all thirty teams and an in-depth look at every major league player and all the top prospects, Baseball Prospectus 2007 offers the cutting-edge analysis that has inspired nearly every major league team to seek the advice of current or former Prospectus writers. Also included are projections of player stats for next year, as determined by the groundbreaking PECOTA system, which Sports Illustrated has called “perhaps the game's most accurate projection model.” The most authoritative and entertaining book of its kind, Baseball Prospectus 2007 is as essential to the baseball- watching experience as hot dogs and cold beer.

    Essential for Baseball Fans and Fantasy Owners

    Baseball Prospectus for years has been the best source of player information available. For the baseball fan, it gives a summary of all players from A ball to the Superstars. For Fantasy GM's it is different from other sources in that it tells you which players are good, which ones are bad, and makes astoundingly accurate predictions about the upcoming year. Any fantasy mag or book can tell you the same re-treaded stratagies, this book will give you the edge over other owners because you will know what to expect from players.

    Baseball Prospectus

    A solid book, but the writing is getting blander by the year. The material on Pitcher Abuse Points sure looks like some people trying to gloss over some results they didn't like. The work to determine if Pitcher Abuse Points predict injuries was clearly done and commented on, but the obvious question of whether or not they actually predict injuries was skipped, and it looks like it was skipped because the authors didn't like the answer. The quality of the writing has been steadily dropping as the production values have been improving. All that being said, this is still the best annual baseball book in the world. It's just not as good as it used to be in 1997 or 1998. With the growing amount of quality baseball material available on the web, I expect more for $22.

    Baseball Prospectus

    The best baseball book I've ever seen. My dad used to buy the Baseball Abstracts, and I have all his old ones. Mr. James was definitely a groundbreaking contributor to baseball, but this book is every bit as great and important. Baseball Prospectus rocks.

    Baseball Prospectus

    A good book! I didn't buy in 1999, because by the time I got around to ordering, I couldn't find a copy. The writing is easy to read, provides some interesting perspective on things, and although I don't always agree with it, there is obviously a good deal of research and thought behind it. I would prefer to cut down the number of players covered, and add another sentence or two about the remaining players. Who has anything new to learn about Tony Gwynn or Rickey Henderson? If a player's been around forever, and people already know about the guy, keep it short. Spend more time on people like Matt Riley and Aaron Myette. This book is not as funny as it has been in the past, but it's more grown up, and there is a sense of community about Baseball Prospectus that I find very appealing. It would be nice to have real stats included, too. But still...a great book, and Chris Karl clearly loves baseball and his work on this book. More Chris on CLTV!
