Baseball Forecaster 2006 - anyone have it?

Postby TyP61382 » Wed Dec 28, 2005 4:41 am

Anyone have this book? I bought the 2004 edition and loved it, and still look at it. Just wondering if Shandler has kept the high quality of that book alive two years later.

I would have already bought it, but purchased the Bill James Handbook instead, an incredible waste of finances. Does Shandler still do stats like xba, eye% etc? I was fascinated with those, and expected them to be in the Bill James Handbook, a book of stats. But they weren't, and neither was much else.

I bought last years Forecaster and Shandler put enough in it to make me come back for more this year. I ordered it from Amazon and saved myself 6 bucks but it doesn't look like it's going to get to me until late January :(.

Walmart.com has it for 2-4 bucks cheaper than Amazon, and it's shipping there within 24 hrs. Odd.

Thanks for the tip. I returned mine to Amazon as well. I'll have to keep an eye on Walmart in the future.

Just an update here... walmart.com now lists the item as out of stock, and they may not get more, as Shandler has said before that retailers get limited copies. Getting it through Shandler was/is about 10.00 more.

I can add that, Walmart hasn't shipped mine yet and are being vague. I've still got a month or so before the draft so I'll sit tight for a while...

I ordered mine on 12/29 and it shipped on 12/30. It is currently in MD with an expected arrival of 1/4 - 1/10. It went to "out of stock" status shortly after mine shipped.

Well I am interested in this. I am entering my second year in a keeper league. I went to Shandler's site to get info on it. It costs 24.95 + 4.50 S&H there but there are some extras that may be valuable. You get the complete book online in PDF and Excel files. The Excel files might be very useful if you're using draft software. You also get a sleeper list from him in March 2006. These are available only if you buy it on his site.

Anybody have any thoughts on this?
