The 2005 Bill James Handbook (2004 statistics)


The Bill James Handbook is now in its third year, and I recoomend buying it instead of The Sporting News Baseball Guide and Baseball Register. The Handbook is a much better successor to the old Major League Handbook and Player Profiles than the other two. The Bill James Handbook provides comprehensive stats from the previous year, and it helps my understanding of each team tremendously when you can get an idea of how a player has performed recently. 416 pp.
