“Pitch Clock? Shift/No-Shift? Bigger Bases? Balanced Schedules? What’s next, Robotic Umps? These and other curve balls we will/may see soon in professional baseball. To understand their implications, we need to know how every single player in the majors performed last year and over their career and what we can expect from these vets in the future and the rookies projected to join them soon. Here is just some of what the 34th annual edition of The Bill James Handbook has to offer going into next season: More Original Research on Cool Topics; The Annual Fielding Bible Awards; Home Run Robberies; Hits Lost/Gained to the Shift; Manufactured Runs and RBI Percentages; Hitter and Pitcher Projections for next season.”
