Ducksnorts Review

I recently received a copy of the Ducksnorts 2007 Baseball Annual. It is a book about the Padres and has little to do with the Tigers but I wanted to bring it to your attention anyway. The author is Geoff Young who is one of the first people I met in the virtual world of the internet. This was back in the mid 1990s on the AOL messageboards and he was actually blogging back then (although it was not called blogging). He is one of the best baseball blog writers and you can see more of his work on Ducksnorts (a Padres blog) and Knuckle Curve (a baseball blog).

The Ducksnorts Annual recaps the Padres 2006 season in detail, includes pieces about the history of the Padres among other things. It also includes some articles on team building which are of general baseball interest. Geoff is an excellent writer who does a great job of incorporating both sabermetrics and baseball observation into his book. I found it to be a very good read even though I'm not a Padre fan. I bought the paper version but it can also be bought as a download.
