Which 2013 baseball book?

Postby BronXBombers51 » Fri Mar 01, 2013 11:23 am

Baseball Prospectus '13
2013 Baseball Forecaster
The Bill James Handbook 2013

I've never gotten any of these publications in the past but am looking to pick one up this year. Basically I'm looking for solid player projections but some insightful writing as well. Which one (if any) would you suggest?

Forecaster and it isn't even close since you have never read them before.

The first 77 pages of the book is articles on all of the research they have done in the past 20+ years. You can decide if you like the style they use for looking at players or not but even if you don't like it the book is worth buying every few years for the articles.

Agreed on the Forecaster as I bought it for the first time this year after a few years of peeking at the three choices. Good articles not only on statistics but also information on drafting strategies as well as results from previous years. I like the blurbs for each player that are just informative enough to give opinion, but not overly complicated to be confused about. Easy to carry around as well.

Thanks guys. Just went to Barnes & Noble and didn't see any of them so I just ordered the Forecaster off Amazon. Looking forward to it.
