Ron Shandler's 2015 Basebal Forecaster
An Encyclopedia of FanalyticseBook - 2014
The industry's longest-running publication for baseball analysts and fantasy leaguers, the 2014 Baseball Forecaster , published annually since 1986, is the first book to approach prognostication by breaking performance down into its component parts. Rather than predicting batting average, for instance, this resource looks at the elements of skill that make up any given batter's ability to distinguish between balls and strikes, his propensity to make contact with the ball, and what happens when he makes contact--reverse engineering those skills back into batting average. The result is an unparalleled forecast of baseball abilities and trends for the upcoming season and beyond.
