Sickels or Baseball America?

Postby Big85Blue85 » Sat Mar 19, 2005 9:26 pm

What is the best book on prospects from the perspective of the fantasy owner? Sickel's annual book, or the annual BA one?

Personally I like both, but I'm a minor nut (did that sound as odd as i thought it did?). I might be more inclined to say BA since your using it as a Fantasy guide more or less. The reason being that BA tends to really look more on "upside potential", and while they take other things into account ... in fantasy wise you usually just want the prospects who have great potential.

Baseball America is my favorite source... That being said..I always read anything I can that Sickles has written...You can't go wrong with either one.. They are 1-2 in my book...

I just prefer Baseball America's overall rankings, and content...

Been a fan of BA for many years..(Since my college baseball day's) and they seem to be the most accurate source you can read..(imho)

Hope this helps..Good luck regardless who, or what you read ;-D
