Baseball Prospectus delayed?

Wondering if anybody else found a copy yesterday. I went to Barnes and Noble and Borders and neither were stocked. March 30th according to the last guy...seems worthless. I won't buy it if it doesn't come out in the next two weeks.

Here's a reply I got back pretty quickly from BP-

As noted on the listing on the Amazon Web site, BP06 starts shipping on
Feb. 28, meaning today. You should expect to receive the book roughly
10 days later if you ordered that way, depending on Amazon's
fulfillment
speed. Bookstores will vary on when they have the book in stock since
Feb
28 is the shipping date, not necessarily the date it arrives in stores.
You might want to try calling ahead and reserving your copy if you go
the
bookstore route.

Be sure to also check out BP's other new book, "Baseball Between the
Numbers"--it's a great read:

Really, I just went to Amazon and they say it was delayed.

Amazon on 3/1 wrote:Availability: This item has not yet been released. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com.


hmmm... anyone else get it yet?

I don't get why Ron Shandler can drop Baseball Forecaster around the beginning of the year, and it's 3/1 and BP still hasn't come out? That's weak.

I think I used two day shipping, so maybe that plays a role.

Baseball Prospectus put up a note on their website claiming there aren't delays. However, I still have yet to see one in a bookstore.
