The cafe is the best for sure. If you need formal projections or guesses for '08 in a straight up PDF format, head over to http://www.fantasybaseballexpress.com ... they have projections by position that I use for a decent rule of thumb. I've paid for projections in years past but definitely won't be doing so this year.

Aslo, are these the same projections that come out in Beckett's annual fantasy mag?

I wouldn't buy any projections from any site.

Some of the paysites may be useful within the season as far as who to keep an eye on type of stuff but not much preseason stuff can be any better than you could get here.

a couple of free sites offer draft cheat sheet tools (excel files with adjustable and sortable categories, etc.). can't remember which, but they should be ready by early March. roto... something...

If you buy the Draft Guide, which has the 2008 stat projections of 1300 players, and are not satisfied, I'll be more than happy to refund your money - just shoot our customer service folks an email.

In fact, if you buy it and don't think it is the best preseason fantasy baseball draftkit/content/toolset you've ever used, we'll give you a refund.

As others have said, if you are just interested in projections, there are at least 4 available for free (CHONE, Bill James, Marcel, and ZiPS). The first three are already available at Fangraphs, and ZiPS should be there soon.

The only pay projection I'd shell out for is PECOTA, because of its demonstrated performance. I'd encourage rotoworld to do a fair comparison of its projections to others.
