I went to the Boston University Barnes & Noble last week for a book signing and talk with Kevin Goldstein and Marc Normandin of Baseball Prospectus (Steve Goldman was unable to fly into Boston because of the rain).
It was a lot of fun. Kevin and Marc took questions and talked for just over an hour and hit all the big topics: Adrian Gonzalez (would be even better in Fenway), Jesus Montero (heck of a hitter but a bad body for a catcher), Dayton Moore’s time with the Royals so far (some good small moves, strange big league decisions), and how many 20 year olds will be on the opening day roster for the Mets (probably one depending on how Jose Reyes is doing).
All in all: fantastic book, great website, and having a back-and-forth with those guys made for a fun night. I’ll definitely be back next year.
Now it’s time to get ready for my fantasy drafts and then the real season on April 4th.
