Pirates Prospects Digital Books

Yesterday marked the release of the 2011 Pirates Prospects Annual, an outstanding look at the 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates, with a look at previous rebuilding plans, and some in-depth analysis of other topics, such as Andrew McCutchen’s defense.  Matt Bandi put the book together, and did a great job, to the point where the $5.00 selling price seems like a huge steal.  The Annual also includes:

  • Profiles and 2011 projections for all players on the 40-man roster, plus bonus profiles for non-roster players who have received an invite to the major league portion of spring training
  • Full career projections for Andrew McCutchenPedro AlvarezJose Tabata andNeil Walker, plus extensive analysis on the results
  • Projected platoon splits for major league position players
  • A detailed look at how the Pirates compare to the 24 teams that reached the postseason in 2008 – 2010, broken down by offense, defense, starting pitching and relief pitching
  • A comprehensive review of the “Five-Year Plan,” the Pirates failed rebuilding attempt of 1996
  • An extensive look at Andrew McCutchen’s defense (Is he as bad as his UZR indicates?)
  • Projected 2011 win total
  • And more…
