Featuring Nate Silver's Deadly Accurate PECOTA

Projections for More Than 1,600 Players

"Baseball Prospectus has become the standard by which all scouting guides should be measured."

–Billy Beane, General Manager, Oakland A's

The 2010 Edition of the New York Times bestselling guide

"THE BEST BOOK OF ITS KIND."—Rob Neyer, espn.com

Now in its fifteenth edition, the Baseball Prospectus annual shows once again how it became the industry leader: the 2010 Edition includes brand-new stat categories, more controversial player predictions, and the kind of wise, witty baseball commentary that makes this phone-book-thick tome worth reading cover to cover.

Baseball Prospectus 2010 provides fantasy players and insiders alike with Nate Silver's uncannily prescient PECOTA projections, which Sports Illustrated has called "perhaps the game's most accurate projection model." Still, stats are just numbers if you don't see the larger context, and Baseball Prospectus brings together an elite team of analysts to provide the definitive look at all thirty teams—their players, their prospects, and their managers—to explain away flukes, hot streaks, injury-tainted numbers, park effects, and overrated prospects who won't be able to fool people in the Show like they have down on the farm.

Nearly every Major League team has sought the advice of current or former Prospectus writers, and readers of Baseball Prospectus 2010 will understand what all those fans have been raving about.

"Baseball Prospectus adds to our understanding of the game."—Bob Costas

"Witty . . . savvy . . . a rich snapshot of where the game and its reference books are today and where they're going."—Sports Illustrated

"Baseball Prospectus continues to raise the bar for innovative baseball analysis every year."—Mark Shapiro, General Manager, Cleveland Indians

"If a general manager hasn't read Baseball Prospectus, he should be fired for incompetence."—Michael Lewis, author of Moneyball

Baseball Prospectus 2009 correctly predicted:

  • The collapse of 2008 stars Joe Saunders, Carlos Quentin, Daisuke Matsuzake, Ryan Ludwick, and Josh Hamilton.
  • Breakout seasons from Max Scherzer, Colby Rasmus, Pablo Sandoval, and Andrew McCutchen.
  • Major comebacks for Javier Vasquez, Troy Tulowitzki, Ryan Zimmerman, and Robinson Cano.
  • That Toronto and Houston weren't as good as their records in 2008—and that management would find out the hard way in 2009.
  • That the Yankees' astonishing free-agent spree—the biggest off-season ever—would be worth it this time around.
  • That the Angels would get to the playoffs, but that's it. Again.
