Saw a couple new books devoted to fantasy baseball on amazon.com and was wondering if anyone here had checked them out and could give a quick review to see if they're worth the time and money to pick up.
The first appears to be a fantasy strategy type of guide called "Dominate Your Fantasy Baseball League" by David N. Sabino, who's an SI.com writer. Is this just the basics for newbies or worth reading for an experienced player?
The other one is actually a series of books by Henry Lee, who wrote a fantasy strategy guide of his own last year which was pretty interesting. This year he has a bunch of individual books of projections based on different style leagues - 5x5 mixed, 5x5 AL, 5x5 NL, 4x4 mixed, 4x4 AL and 4x4 NL. Anyone tried these out? How to they compare to the regular books (Prospectus, Forecaster, Benson, etc.) and magazines out there?
Also, anyone else know of any other fantasy books out there? I remember the hearing about a New York Times (or maybe a different major paper?) writer putting together a book last year following an experts league throughout the season. I assume it will be kind of a tongue-in-check, semi-serious look at the fantasy business in general as well as the one league, similar to the the fantasy football book that came out last fall ("Committed" I think was the name). That was a decent read and since I'm addicted to fantasy baseball even more than football, this one could be even more of a fun read. Anybody heard if that baseball book is out yet or worth checking out? Or even what it's name is so I can check amazon for it. Thanks.
