Overview

The Maple Street Press Red Sox Annual 2007 gives fans the detailed information that they’ve always longed for. Other preseason annuals merely scratch the surface and devote just a few pages of coverage to the Sox, but this publication delivers the thorough, intensive treatment of the team that Red Sox fans have come to expect from Maple Street Press.

Included with a complete breakdown of the 2007 roster and what to look for in the upcoming season is a study of the team’s off-season moves, including the courting of Japanese phenom Daisuke Matsuzaka. Further, the book analyzes catcher Jason Varitek and what he does or does not mean to the Sox pitching staff. Acclaimed statistician Pete Palmer breaks down the move of Jonathan Papelbon to the rotation and why he is much more valuable there than in the bullpen.

Fans also get a look back at Red Sox history, including a review of Joe Cronin and his storied, yet somewhat forgotten, career. Also included is a fortieth-anniversary recollection of the magical summer of 1967 through a poignant fan remembrance.

The Annual evaluates the full Red Sox organization, including the team’s entire minor league system and its top prospects. It also reviews the last two “youth movements” the Red Sox instituted in 1987 and 1997, and how they compare to the current group of prospects.

Written by Red Sox fans for Red Sox fans, the Maple Street Press 2007 Red Sox Annual is more than a hundred pages of full-color, ad-free Red Sox coverage unlike anything else available.

A publication of Maple Street Press, distributed by Potomac Books, Inc.
