Sabermetric guide to the 2008 professional baseball season, with essays and player projections for each team, as well as essays on baserunning, outfielder arm strength, and pitching counts.
  chosler | Jan 20, 2009 |
Another solid effort from the Baseball Prospectus team - as for me this is a must buy every year before Spring Training. The gold standard of baseball statistical analysis annuals- and BP has added a scouting tinge to both their annuals and website over the last two years which has been much appreciated. I still wish they would spend a few bucks and hire a good copy editor. Typical modus operandi for this book is having different writers focus on a single team, which inevitably leads to some chapters being much stronger than others. That's to be expected for a book the size of the BP annual that must be churned out in just a few short months. But spelling issues and the repeating of the same tired baseball cliches plague the book for the 2nd straight year, and this becomes plainly evident to someone who reads it cover to cover. ( )

The New York Times bestselling guide to major league baseball returns for the 2008 season

For over a decade, Baseball Prospectus has been the ultimate guide to the game for fantasy players, professionals, and casual fans alike. Baseball Prospectus 2008 continues that tradition, bringing together the top young baseball writers and analysts in the business to provide a definitive look at the season to come. Featuring groundbreaking essays on the performance of each of the thirty teams and an in-depth look at every major league player and all the top prospects, Baseball Prospectus 2008 offers the cutting-edge analysis that has inspired nearly every major league team to seek the advice of current or former Prospectus writers. Also included are projections of player stats for next year, as determined by the groundbreaking PECOTA system, which Sports Illustrated has called “perhaps the game’s most accurate projection model.” The most authoritative and entertaining book of its kind, Baseball Prospectus 2008 is as essential to the baseball-watching experience as hot dogs and cold beer.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:14 -0400)

Provides profiles of major league players with information on statistics for the past five seasons and projections for the 2008 baseball season.
