As a minor league analyst who has had articles published on BaseballHQ.com, I have learned how to analyze minor leaguers. Now I have written a book about how you can do this sort of analysis yourself. It is not just more of these player profiles you see on my site. It is, instead, a compendium of Web resources for anyone who wants to analyze a minor leaguer’s results on the field. And now it has been fully updated for 2022 with 20 new pages and every existing page checked and updated as needed.
And 24 hours after it was released, it became a Kindle best seller!
The book is 120 pages long, and full of graphics on just about every page. It contains embedded video, and links to other videos, if your device can handle that. The Apple Books version shows embedded video, for instance, while the Kindle version is limited to listing the links where you can find the videos. Each web site is linked, and every person mentioned has their Twitter handle linked. This is a resource for the entire fantasy baseball industry.
It is an easy read. It has these six sections:
1. Minor League Analysis: What stats are best for minor leaguers?
2. Baseball Stat Sites: Where can we get those stats on the web?
3. Prospect Web Sites: What sites cover minor league prospects well?
4. Tool Metrics: Now that we know where to find the numbers and the players, what makes one metric Excellent and another level Poor?
5. Analysis Sampler: Three players from this site, illustrating the overall method.
6. Random Notes: Handy information I have picked up over the years.
