Saber-Slanted Last Minute Xmas Gifts

New, comments

With Christmas being less than a week away, here are a few ideas, besides new GMs for the Mets and the Royals, for gifts for those Saber-slanted people in your life.

1.  Hardball Times Annual -- This book is a must have for any baseball fan.  Straight up the best book getting published today.

2.  Subscription to Paysites (Baseball ProspectusBill James OnlineESPN Insider or baseball-reference.com)  --  These subscriptions are my favorite to give.  Easy to set up and I yearly give ESPN Insider to my brother and he seems just happy with that. 

3.  Ron Shandler's Baseball Forecaster - Great for the fantasy nut and make sure you order from the web-site to get the digital copy and the March update.

4.  Strat-O-Matic - The classic with several new additions including the Negro League set.

5.  MLB game downloads - Give someone their off season fix by letting them download some of the greatest games ever.   To bad the Pine Tar Game's price isn't pro-rated to get just the 1 minute of George Brett blowing up.

These are five of my best recommendations, but if anyone one else has any ideas, feel free to share.  Happy Holidays.
