    I was excited when I received my shipping notification. I still read BP every day. The site isn't what it once was but it is still a fun read for hardcore baseball fans and well worth the money.

    I pre-order every year, 2013 was first I didn't read cover to cover. Way too many typos, feels bush league.

    Got mine today!
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    No kindle edition this year...the last two years I have bought this for Kindle, to save a tree or two.

    Good Reds article in the annual. This years book feels more solid in construction than last years. Love the book every year.

    The book is one of the best annuals since the glory days of BP. I read all the essays already, but haven't jumped into the player pages except for the Reds section.

    The Bill James Handbooks are kinda neat for the some of the leader boards in back - 99% of the book can be found at baseball reference site. I would go with the fangraphs or BP annual if you want analysis.

    Re: For those who care....the Prospectus annual is out

    For just Reds coverage I like the Redleg Annual at http://redlegannual.com/

    usual disclaimer --- no affliation

    Last year it was $4.00 and you download it.

    Dougdirt and maybe others here have written for it.

    It is not out yet -- but said to be coming soon -- stay tuned
