Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not worth the $$$$  May 24, 2007
I didn't find this useful as the 'statistics' presented werte more subjective and less useful than the usual baseball numbers. This book may be useful for some but it was not useful to me.
Above Average First book from Hardball Times  May 13, 2007
Overall an excellent baseball book.

Something to keep in mind - despite the huge "2006" declaration of the front, this annual is definitely more of a 2005 season review book than a 2006 season preview. Would probably work better as a Hot Stove primer or a refresher in the run-up to spring training.

It's about 50% reviews & articles and 50% shear stats from the 2005 season.

The GM in a Box feature was pretty fascinating looking at the wants, habits & desires of the career of one particular GM (Walt Jocketty in this case) - hope that continues in future years.

The stats run from the basics you see everywhere (RBI, HR, H etc) to the more sabermetrically inclined (RC, PR, WS).
A must  Mar 24, 2006
This book, along with THT free website, is a seasonal "must have." The collection of stats itself is freely available on THT website, but - like Baseball Prospectus' annual - its presentation of those stats allows for easy reading on a team by team basis before and during the season. It also has articles that provide an indepth analysis of several of THT's own stats and other "on the edge" ideas about baseball analysis. If really forced to get only one such book each year, this one would make a strong argument to be that book.
Does not cover everything, but outstanding in what it does  Mar 16, 2006
When I first got this book, I was a little disappointed that it did not provide everything in a neat package like other annuals. For example, the team and individual statistics are for 2005 only, with neither historical numbers nor projections. There are no detailed writeups or predictions on teams or players, and some of the articles seem to go into too much depth on issues like batted balls, as noted by another reviewer.

Over time, however, I have been referring to this book more than any other source to get deeper insights into the coming season and re-reading the numerous excellent articles on specific topics like fielding and, yes, types of batted balls. While not written with fantasy leagues in mind, I've found the stats to be invaluable in identifying undervalued players especially beyond the Top 100 that appear on everyone's draft lists.

This book does not try to cover everything, but what it does choose to cover is done extremely well.
The best baseball annual of its kind!  Mar 12, 2006
As a fan of Baseball Prospectus, I must say I was very impressed with the Hardball Times Baseball Annual. Impressed enough to say that it is the best annual of its kind, beating out BP. The reason is that there is so many quality and interesting articles. There is nothing on fantasy baseball or much on individual player evaluation, but the whole annual is filled with thought provoking essays that do not seem to be biased towards or against any particular team as other periodicals seem to be.
