  Description: The bestselling annual baseball preview from the smartest analysts in the business.

Now in its 19th edition, the Baseball Prospectus annual shows once again how it became the industry leader: The 2014 edition includes key 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 2014 provides fantasy players and insiders alike with 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, and park effects. Victory, after all, could come down to choosing between the supposed sleeper and the 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 2014 will understand what all those fans have been raving about.

“The tip of the nerd spear.” —Ken Tremendous

“If you’re a baseball fan and you don’t know what BP is, you’re working in a mine without one of those helmets with the lights on it.” —Keith Olbermann

“Baseball Prospectus has become the standard by which all scouting guides should be measured.” —Billy Beane, General Manager, Oakland A’s

“For me, every year baseball begins with [this] big, brilliant, beautiful book.” —Joe Posnanski
