For the past few months, I have been telling you about the 2011 Pirates Prospects Prospect Guide, which I have been working on non-stop since the end of the 2010 season. The book is in the final stages, and expected to be completed soon, with a release date in the middle of January. You can now pre-order the book to ensure that you will get one of the first copies when the book is released.
The book is jammed packed with reports and information on every prospect in the Pirates' farm system, along with other useful information. This information comes from people who have actually seen the players in action, as well as conversations we've had with the players, scouts, and other sources. Features of the book include:
