I have never purchased BP and probably will next year. This year was my first year getting the Forcaster. I've always just used mags, and just tweaked/wrenched their projections to fit my projections.

BP has breakout candidates and bust candidates by percentage correct? What are your top 5 breakout and busts that they have published. I'm talking ones that you agree with. Do you get what I'm asking?

Where do you agree with them and where do you disagree?

Howard, Bonderman and Blalock are high on their list to make improvements on last year's numbers.

You have to understand the PECOTA system to understand how to interpret it's findings.

Matthew Bush has the highest breakout rate among hitters. Then Michael Ferris, Trevor Plouffe.

BP loves Autsin Kearns chances of breaking out. Not a bad pick for a breakout.
