i'd always considered it inferior to Fantasy Baseball Index and TSN. Anyone agree?

I picked it up as well.....I didn't much care for it. Very basic, not too much interesting commentary - certainly could have got most of it off the net.

I've seen three magazines so far this year don"t ask I don"t remember who they were

My observation is that they have all been stat based
They all offer the stats but very little opinion and comentary Not that I agree with them anyway but it is nice to see how other people see things

I guess if they go with just stats they can kick out the magazine a month or two earlier than if they had to have comentary on players and why they project certain players to rise or fall in value

I guess this is just the beginning of the internet age when more and more people are gonna be getting ALL of their info off the net

Lindy sucks. You could throw a dart out your car window and would hit someone who knows more about fantasy baseball than him (them). I'm not sure how some of these guys get published. Money?

Yes. I publish short run books and magazines, and have designed magazines that get full print runs for national and international distribution. Now if we could only get the content from the experts on this board organized.....it would be a winner for everyone in Fantasy BB.
