  • The most complete treatment of managers we've ever published, with manager stats going back to the 1970s and the last four years of manager comments from the annuals

  • An extended leaderboard of PECOTA rookie players, based on the latest PECOTA data and playing time projections available

How could the BP2012 update compare Coco Crisp to Robin Yount!? that is a slap in the face to a hall of famer. Even Kenny Lofton deserves better than that, he had some superstar years in Cleveland. I realize it is playing style....

Thanks for this. Is UPSIDE coming soon to PECOTA?

Big BIG thanks for this...great idea, and easy delivery. I looked everywhere for Rendon in the big book, and I'm impressed BP put this together, and got it out so quickly. Nice work.

I had a good chuckle when I read that Jake Odorizzi is 40 years old. You might want to check that.

Thanks Dodger300, Odorizzi is fixed and the pdf is updated.

You should also give him credit for being the #47 prospect.

Second line of Odorizzi's write up could use some editing.

Looks like Jose Campos' numbers are a little off. http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=campos003jos

Just exactly what would Wily Mo Pena have to have done to get acknowledged by BP?

we would have included him if he was suggested last week!

Why is Joe Terdoslavich included when he was in the book?

oops--I missed him in Baseball Prospectus 2012. He should not be here. His inclusion gives Joe Terdoslavich fans who don't want to pay for the book a serious amount of leverage.

Freudian slip on Cespedes as an "all-of-nothing" hitter?
