Synopses & Reviews
Here's the book that ESPN.com's Rob Neyer has called the best book of its kind. Updated for the 2002 season, the BASEBALL PROSPECTUS analyzes every top player in each organization all the way down to rookie ball and does it with objective, intelligent commentary. The PROSPECTUS gives the final word on what the players did, why they did it, and what they're going to do in the future. Readers will get the in-depth statistics covering every crack of the bat from the 2001 season that they would expect. They'll also find entertaining essays on every team and articles on special-interest topics not found anywhere else. Sprinkled throughout are the same touches of irreverent humor that BASEBALL PROSPECTUS readers enjoy and expect. The exclusive Davenport Translations again compare performances across leagues and ballparks, and the PROSPECTUS provides new ways to analyze everything, from starting pitchers' win-loss records to pitcher workloads to bullpen effectiveness. Find out why ESPN's Peter Gammons says, BASEBALL PROSPECTUS's rankings are an invaluable tool. If more general managers understood them, they wouldn't do some of the trades they do.
In-depth statistics and predictions for every major league team and 1,600 players -- more than any other book on the market.
