"The Hardball Times Baseball Annual -- it's what we all enjoy." - Peter Gammons

----

For eight years, the guys and gals of The Hardball Times have been writing about baseball -- every day on our website and every year in our Annual. This eighth Annual continues our tradition of insightful, interesting, sometimes humorous, sometimes analytical, awfully good baseball writing.

Inside these pages you'll find...

- Craig Calcaterra's humorous take on the season that just was
- An ode to the Red Sox's season that could have been
- A fan's take on the amazing ups and downs of the Oakland A's
- The legacies of Satchel Paige and Horace Stoneham in baseball history
- The umpires who have had the widest strike zones in baseball history...and the smallest
- Interviews with baseball insiders about how they construct their lineups.

What's more, we have a special section dedicated to the economics of baseball, such as an article by Dave Cameron on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, how much free agents are paid for their skills and a brand new feature: a case study in baseball economics.

Plus, our annual assortment of division reviews, postseason coverage and just plain fun. As Sports Weekly said, "There are several baseball books that come out every year for the holiday season, but none as well-rounded and complete as The Hardball Times Baseball Annual."

Pick one up and join the fun.
