Overview

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

The essential guide to the 2012 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 2012 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 seventeenth edition, this New York Times bestselling insider's guide remains hands down the most authoritative and entertaining book of its kind.

Great for any sports fan as the baseball info is very interesting with some humor involved. My only complaint is they spend the same amount of time on stars as they do guys who are 34 and had 3 hrs as a backup 3B.

Whatevs) The smokey wolf with swiroing elwctric blue runes lays on top of a rock. She overlooks the camp. She waits to see Fury to ask the alpha if he would like to hunt. She thought he was very handsome but she did not know him. She waited eyes close ears pricked.
