We're currently putting the finishing touches on a supplement to Baseball Prospectus 2012 (which is available in many formats at attractive prices this year, in case you don't already have your copy). We'll be releasing the supplement via PDF (and potentially other formats) early next week. The purpose of the supplement is to include some additional material we weren't able to fit into the published version and fix a few oversights along the way. When it comes to 576-page, large-format books compiled in a matter of weeks, we've found there's always something to change. In particular, the update will include:

  • Complete stats and brand-new player comments for dozens of players, such as Coco Crisp, Kendrys Morales, and many very young players who didn't make Baseball Prospectus 2012
  • Corrections to the managerial stats in the annual and expanded manager coverage
  • The complete, updated 2012 PECOTA for rookies leaderboard

If you've already got Baseball Prospectus 2012, please leave us your corrections and comments below, and we'll try to get them addressed in the update.

I'm hopeful that some top 100 prospects who weren't included will be in the supplement. I'm not talking about the "very young" you have mentioned, or even about 2011 draftees with no pro experience - I can understand them being omitted. The most egregious example that springs immediately to mind is Jake Odorizzi.

We do have some top prospects in the supplement. We'll post a player list soon.

Hope you don't mind me asking ... is there a new ETA for the iOS app? First-minute purchase for me.

No problem. We have asked our publisher for an update on that availability and we'll let you know. Sorry for the delay.

The app is almost ready... it should be available very soon, sometime this coming week, it sounds like. Maybe even Monday.

It'll take probably a week to show up in the Apple store beyond Monday, but we're working on having a promotional price for BP "insiders" like yourself. We're also going to update it throughout the season, adding new material and new functions.

When you create the PDF, can you please do an alternate version that will be readable on a Kindle? Normal 8.5x11 PDFs don't translate too well, they need to be resized.

Llarry, I can try.

Will the kindle edition be updated or is this something I will have to download separate from amazon?

We're unable to update the Kindle version, sorry. This will be a standalone PDF.

Please identify how many games each player played at a position last year! It used to be in the Annual and is sorely missed. Thanks!

which annual are you thinking, stewbies? I'll have to go back and see how we did it... because I don't remember that. We did used to use Clay Davenport's defensive statistics, which center around 100, and I could see that looking like games played per position.

as much as we appreciate this update, when is the pecota spreadsheet with upside coming? many people are approaching fantasy draft time.

Could you find some way with the update to go back and retroactively erase the Foreword? That's got to be the worst piece of writing ever to be associated with BP - BP ought to be ashamed/embarrassed that ever saw the light of day.

that was my favorite part of the entire book... isn't Ken Tremendous one of the writers for "The Office?"

this year's foreword seems to be polarizing.

Yes, Ken Tremendous used to write for THE OFFICE and he created PARKS AND REC. I think it's polarizing because it's one big call back to his days running the astonishingly amazingly awesome firejoemorgan.com. If you didn't read it then, it's probably just super-weird now.

If we already purchased a hard copy of the BP 2012, how do we get our mitts on the updated material?

come back tomorrow and it'll be all ready for you.

Dave, Is this update coming sometime soon? I'd love to have it purchased & usable by this Thursday. Selfishly, that's draft day for me. Thank you.
