"Best book to take to the draft. Each year we plug this book, and each year nobody even comes close. For ease of use, up-to-date information and quality analysis, the Fantasy Baseball Insider by Dennis LePore and Rod Beaton is the best. It also has draft day roster forms and games played by position charts, plus three-year stat scans." – John Hunt from USA Today Baseball Weekly

"A winner. The Fantasy Baseball Insider provides tons of insight on hundreds of players." Ron Shandler, Baseball Forecaster and

OLD-FASHIONED WAY: They still write books? Yes, and good ones.

More from John Hunt

"This is the best and most faithfully updated set of Depth Charts on the internet and one of the first spots you should turn to when a trade is announced and not sure who might fill a vacated position." -- John Hunt, USAT Baseball Weekly

"Best of the Internet"

"It is your site, and sites like yours that helped us gain the recognition that we wish to share today. Your site, which has been chosen as one of the "Best of the Internet," deserves particular recognition. Congratulations to you and your site. We know the effort, time and dedication it takes to be the best." -- Jason Pamer, an online publishing community of writers, readers, and educators

Quote from 2001 LABR draft: "I sat next to John Coleman of the Sandlot Shrink. … Mr. Coleman, please note, may well be the best analyst in this business. He's great at auctions too, mumbling and waving papers around as he banters with us and buys himself another good team." -- Gene McCaffrey, Wise Guy Baseball

TESTIMONIAL: “I have been using the Sandlot Shrink since the early 90's and it has been instrumental in winning many baseball, football and basketball leagues over the years. The spring training news for baseball is by far the best source of information anywhere on the net. I have been in a league of 18 teams that drafts a total of 500 players on our rosters for 15 years. With your help, I have finished in the prize money 10/15 years, which is remarkable with the competitiveness of my league. This year your news and projections helped me win the 1st National Fantasy Baseball Championship. I always tell people your site is the best!” Artie Rastelli, Triple-A Winner of the 2004 National Fantasy Baseball Championship
