This is a very informative book for fantasy baseball players. Not only does it list the stats for present day players, but it also gives information for future prospects. I have used this book as a source of information for the last 9 years and will keep doing so.

The 2010 Bill James Handbook is a must for the knowledgeable baseball fan. STATS Inc began publishing the Handbook in 1990. In 2003 the Handbook switched publishers to ACTA Sports. I have all 21 copies of the Handbook sitting on my shelf. (Actually, I seem to be missing my 2003 copy). I buy the annual each season because there is so much new and important information in each Handbook. For example, their projections (pitching and hitting) always provide us with the major's next young star. For example, starting with the first edition in 1990, the Handbook correctly projected that a AA rookie named, Jeff Bagwell would take the league by storm. This season's Jeff Bagwell projected by the Handbook is the Braves' rookie Jason Heyward. But, the Handbook is more than just projections. There are career leaders, fielding statistics, relief pitching and base running statistics. Whose is the worst base runner in baseball? The Handbook will tell you and sometimes even tip off major league teams. For example, in the 2009 Handbook, listed the Braves #2 hitter, Yunel Escobar as one of the worst base runners in baseball. Not surprisingly, Braves' Manager, Bobby Cox then move Escobar down to the #5 spot in the order to where his base runner errors wouldn't have as big of an impact. The Handbook also list Win Shares for each player each season. Win Shares are a great tool for anyone doing baseball research. In conclusion, the Handbook is and will continue to be on my must buy list every season. Doug Decatur mlbexpertanalysis.com
