Introducing a book for fantasy leaguers
John Burnson, the creator of HEATER magazine, has published his annual Graphical Player 2009. It is a book primarily geared towards fantasy baseball owners. Instead of using tables of numbers to describe players, Burnson uses charts and graphs which allow the readers to visualize trends and tendencies. It has daily game logs, fantasy values, player forecasts and more. In all, 800 major and minor league players are profiled. It also incudes player commentary by writers who closely follow each team. I provided the comments for all the Tigers.
