  1. Long time Bill James fan/customer 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Nov 10th 2019)

    Very pleased overall.
    One request: when you create a list of statistics such as fielding, .etc, show the average for overall results for each table. E.g., catchers stolen base data: show the overall average % of caught stealing so I can compare individual results to individual performance.

  2. Don't leave home without it 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on Nov 9th 2019)

    I just wonder why they didn't wait a couple of more weeks and put all of the 2019 Post-Season stats in? I personally would have preferred it that way!

  3. Baseball fan must........... 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Nov 9th 2019)

    I have The Bill James Handbook going back over 25 years. First course of business at the end of the MLB regular season is to order it.
