Review: Baseball Prospectus 2013

User Review  - Mike - Goodreads

Getting closer and closer to dropping this series. They just ain't what they used to be. Not as much insight. Team chapters are too much recap, not enough forecasting. And the witty player reviews are almost all straightforward. I give this a solid meh. Read full review
