Baseball Prospectus News

Best of Baseball Prospectus Books Now Available

by Ben Lindbergh

Best of Baseball Prospectus: 1996-2011 (Volume 1 and Volume 2) are now available for purchase both as PDFs through BP and as hard copies on Amazon.com. This means that you can stop emailing me to ask when they'll be available, though I hope you'll still email me to say hi. All those messages in my inbox made me feel more important.

You’ll probably notice that the price is listed at $16.95, not the $14.95 we mentioned in our initial announcement. You know those infomercials that insist, “Our prices are so low, we must be crazy?” In most cases, what they should really say is, “Our prices are so low, we must be selling products that are cheaply manufactured and don’t work as well as advertised!” In this case, though, after we added some last-minute suggestions and finished the formatting, our original price may actually have been crazy: $14.95 was below the minimum price at which we could get the books into bookstores, so we had to raise it slightly. We hope you’ll put the blame on Jeff Bezos and buy the books anyway.

The books are currently in-stock and shipping, and if you buy the matched set, you'll be over the $25 minimum for Amazon to cover your shipping. When we mentioned two-day shipping earlier, Dave was forgetting that not everyone is an Amazon Prime member, but Amazon guarantees that the free Super Saver shipping option will get the books to you by Christmas. The free shipping by Christmas option is available for a limited time only, so if you're in a gifting mood, have a look today. Click here for the initial announcement or follow the links to buy the PDF above for a reminder of what you'll be getting, or you can click here or on the image to the right to see a sample article in the same format you'll see in the book and PDF.

Now that the books have been put to bed, we have some ideas for events and promotions for them that we finally have a little time to work on. We'll have more on those soon. In the meantime, thank you, and enjoy.
