From SABR member Cecilia Tan at Baseball Prospectus on March 1, 2013:
Baseball Prospectus 2013 is landing in mailboxes and e-readers everywhere this week. I see the tweets popping up all over. I can now say to my friends, “Now you know what I did all winter.”
In case you don’t already know, Baseball Prospectus 2013 is this season’s edition of the most complete guide to Major League Baseball you can buy. It’s almost 600 pages of the data and projections for players and teams you need, whether you are trying to win your fantasy league, get a handle on what your team is doing (or failing to do), or just stay one step ahead of the color commentators trying to figure out what to say about that guy who got called up.
Building the annual is a little like building a baseball team. You spend all winter on it, sweating the details and hoping it all works, but until it gets out there, you don’t know how it’ll do. Well, the book hasn’t even been out a week and, as this is written, is holding both the no. 1 and no. 2 slots on Amazon’s baseball bestsellers list (with the paperback and the Kindle version), and is at no. 60 in all books (and climbing). Past volumes have reached the New York Times bestseller list as well, so I feel pretty good that we’ve got a winner on our hands.
