I agree, i believe they will have over 1000 player player projections in it. I like getting these magazines to compare how good or bad they did with the projections after the season is complete

They are under suspicion though right off the bat...Sexson isn't a bust - mark my word!!!

I know you smell what I'm cookin', SHOCK.


Sexson a bust? HOGWASH!

Beckett published our magazine this year, instead of krause.
You can buy it online here...
http://www.beckett.com/rotoworld/ We have regional covers of Randy Johnson, Pujols and the aforementioned manny/schilling combo.

I feel like what seperates our magazine from others is the detail in which the outlooks are written and the projections - also get contract year players, guys to target for steals and the usual sleepers, busts and prospects. A couple different articles on draft strategy are also included, as well as cheatsheets for AL/NL and Mixed broken down by both 4x4 and 5x5 dollar values and seperated into tiers. We also break down each teams managerial tendencies and ballpark...do you know how RFK stadium will play this year?

The online guide has all of the same, but is sortable and updated as news warrants. And we are continously adding things to it..

As a teaser..

Tadahito Iguchi 2005 Season Outlook 4x4 $15 5x5 $16
Iguchi, primarily a second baseman but also a shortstop in Japan, hopes to make the jump to MLB this year. If it happens, he probably would be a quality fantasy infielder. Playing for the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks, Iguchi hit .340/.438/.573 with 27 HR and 42 SB in 2003 and .333/.394/.549 with 24 HR and 18 SB last season. It’s unlikely that he’d hit so well in the U.S., but 15 homers and 15-20 steals would be well within reach if he’s a regular.[/img][/url][img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

If Beckett is behind it, it should be a quality product. I was going to pick it up myself.

;-D

Having been a lurker for the most part, i do notice we get some good feedback here. If there are any feedback on the magazine or RW in general - feel free to let it flow...

Also it looks like many of you use RW on a daily basis. If there is anything that we can do better/different, feel free to let me know.

Also Mods - if I'm out of line with this type of post just let me know...
