My question for you guys is - is the book worth the cover price? I realize that it's impossible to comment on this year's edition as it isn't released yet (but may be by the time some of you read this); however, what about those of you who have purchased in years past?
Am I really going to get anything extra out of the book that I don't already have with my Rotoworld Online Draft Guide? Is it just stats, or are there decent player blurbs and articles, too? I'm also intrigued by Ron Shandler's Baseball Forecaster, but from what I've read, I think it might be a little too statistical for my liking. Don't get me wrong, I love fantasy baseball, but math has never been a huge interest of mine.
Any and all information and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I like to get both, it's mostly entertainment as I have kind of given up trying to formulate a systematic approach to 'using' them but just read through them several times. It may be a bit dicey getting full comprehension of BP in a week between when I should get it and our auction though...
