Oh, i agree. Baseball America is much better. The articles and usch are great writing, and they are top notch on Minor Leagues and College. And Major League info isnt difficult to find anywhere for free.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

I was thinking the same thing. I mean I like Baseball America for the fact they are focused more on prospects. I can get my MLB information from other sources that are free. I can't wait to get my BA Prospect Handbook. Although, I ordered BP 2007, Minor League Baseball Analyst (from baseballhq.com), John Sickels, and Baseball America. I can't wait to get them all. I am in a dynasty league so I like to do my research on the minors to make suer there isnt anything I am missing.

Jon Sickles (minorleagueball.com) is also very good (though he does less than Baseball America). Personally i have a BP account because i like their Major league stuff. Their minor league stuff is good, but the articles are not very frequant and don't cover college and highschool (like BA), baseball america is much more indepth.

I like BP better than BA myself. I think BA is great for what it is, but as a fantasy baseball player I'm not really interested in college and high school baseball, or even the draft for that matter. I think BP is more serviceable in terms of fantasy baseball and the prospects I'm interested in, and it has good ML stuff too.

We're getting the Handbook back from the presses on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure that they will be shipped immediately.

I have accounts to both BP and BA, I would say I check BP every day while I check BA once a week.
