Ahhhh...a beautiful day, a balmy 2 degrees and the first sign of spring is here. The Fantasy Baseball magazines have hit the bookshelves. :-D

I checked at the store today and only saw Lindy's. It had their top 10 picks on the cover. They were atrocious so I didn't even open it.

Sporting News is out also, I've never cared for Lindys.

Lindys, Sporting News, and Rotowire are out

depending on your area/source of getting mags though not all may be on shelf store to store

I love a few mags for offseason reading even if they are worthless come draft day :)

Ever since I started buying Forecaster and Jay's spreadsheet, I've abandoned the magazines. I do recall liking the Rotowire one most though...

they still make fantasy baseball magazines?

these days with so many websites about fantasy baseball it's made magazines not have much value. I personally still like to buy the magazines, as I like to see as many projections as I can. in recent years though I've found it harder to find them here where I live in Canada.
up until maybe 4-5 years ago I would buy maybe 7-8 a year. my favorite was one named YEAR MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL YEARBOOK & FANTASY GUIDE. it always had players 1st/2nd half splits.

I treat fantasy baseball the same way I do porn. I just use the internet.

Im strictly a Shandler and Razzball guy. However I like to do little investigation into what mags other guys in league have so I can have idea what they are thinking. At least thats my excuse for buying couple mags anyway!
