As you may already know, we tried self-publishing on for size last year with Pro Basketball Prospectus 2009-10 and College Basketball Prospectus 2009-10. We had a positive experience with those books, and we’re moving into self-publishing baseball material this year.

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve signed our friend Joe Sheehan for the first book we’ll be announcing in 2010. "The Untitled Joe Sheehan Book" is going to expand on and update a few dozen signature pieces Joe wrote for BP over the years, and will be edited by Christina Kahrl. It will be ready for the printer by this year’s playoffs at the latest.

Joe will be maintaining a production weblog for the book, and we’ll be featuring that at You’ll be able to get more information about the book there soon. Joe will also be doing several chats at in support of the project.

Now, back to working on the PECOTA cards… shooting for end of the week with those.
