The Hardball Times Baseball Annual 2016!

Ladies and gentlemen, The Hardball Times Baseball Annual 2016 is now ready and waiting to be devoured. It is the 12th edition of the book.


We’ve got a great book this year, including the longest analysis section in the four years I’ve been working on the book — nearly 150 pages! It is available now for purchase direct from both Amazon, and our independent publishing platform, Createspace. It will soon be available for sale on the Kindle as well.

You can read a full breakdown of the table of contents in my post that went up moments ago at THT Live.

This book is a labor of love for us every year. The book is full of posts from our great team at The Hardball Times and here at FanGraphs — Dave Cameron, Jeff Sullivan, Eno Sarris, Carson Cistulli, August Fagerstrom, Jeff Zimmerman, Neil Weinberg, Owen Watson, Chris Mitchell and Jonah Pemstein, among others — plus special guests like Erik Malinowski, Mitchel Lichtman and Phil Birnbaum.

We hope you enjoy it!!!
