The 2011 Fantasy Baseball Guide

January 12, 2011 | By RotoRob | comment on this post

This was year seven that I had the pleasure of working on Rotoman’s superb publication, The Fantasy Baseball Guide. Once again, the site was well represented, with Tim McLeod, Herija Green and Buck Davidson also contributing to this year’s guide. Personally, I wrote over 300 player profiles while also providing a few rookie choices and a smattering of picks and pans.

We’re very excited about this year’s issue, and without prejudice can say that it’s quite conceivably the best effort yet – no small task considering some of the gems turned out in the history of this guide.

2011 Fantasy Baseball Guide

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll be receiving:

  • Over 1,400 player profiles, complete with valuations and projections
  • Over 300 picks and pans from Fantasy baseball experts
  • Which rookies to watch in 2011
  • Sleepers
  • A complete rundown of games played by position for both major leaguers and minor leaguers
  • Tons of strategy tips
  • An expert mock draft
  • Annotated cheat sheets (a new addition this year)
  • The publication will be officially released on Jan. 18, but could begin showing up on shelves of stores like Walmart and Barnes & Noble sooner than that.

    Picked my copy up at Hastings yesterday, am busy digesting it. I think I’ve bought your guide every year since 2005 or so. Thanks

  2. RotoRob says:

    Hey Terry,

    Thanks for being a long time reader! Hope you enjoy this year’s guide and best of luck in your Fantasy leagues in 2011!


  3. Butch says:

    Cant find the guide anywhere. I have tried multiple Barnes and Noble, Borders, and Wal Mart.

  4. RotoRob says:

    Hi Butch,

    I’ll check with Rotoman and see what the deal is.


  5. Hey Butch,

    I’m hearing from people who are finding it in gas stations and bookstores and others who are not. I can tell you that it isn’t in my local Barnes and Noble, but it will be, so for now all I can advise is patience.

    I”ve asked and asked the Publisher to put out a pdf or online version, but for some reason I don’t understand they’re very resistant.

    In any case, I’m pretty sure the mag isn’t in every store it will eventually be in, so I hope it gets easier to find.

    Thanks, Peter. There you go, Butch…hopefully it will land in your vicinity shortly. Have you asked the manager in your local B & N whether it is coming in stock there? They should have that information.

  7. Butch says:

    Thanks for the info guys. I’ll just keep checking. Its the one magazine I have to get every year and its tough being patient. I’m ready for some baseball!

  8. RotoRob says:

    I hear ya, Butch. Patience is not a strong suit here, and we’re ready for baseball, too! Just a couple of weeks until pitchers/catchers report!

    Is there any way to get the player projections from your fantasy baseball guide on-line? I bought the magazine, but looking for a way to get the data into a spreadsheet for further analysis. Thanks!

  10. RotoRob says:

    Hey Brent,

    I’ll look into that and get you an answer shortly.


  11. Hi Brent,

    I don’t make the projections from the magazine available because they are really just mechanical projections based on the stats for the last few years, with some tweaks for players we know have changed situations. There are way too many players changing teams after the magazine goes to bed to fuss with playing time issues.

    I make a whole set of projections available in mid March for download, along with updated prices. Those are the ones to pay attention to, since they are adjusted for playing time battles and ballpark changes.

    An even more in depth set of projections (more categories) and prices (including Alex Patton’s and Mike Fenger’s) is available at This is a pay product, comes with some nifty software for list management and data updates throughout spring training.

    The projection update in mid March includes my prices and the same categories as the magazine carries.

    I didn’t mean to make this an advertisement. BTW I generally share any data that I create if someone asks, so if you have a plan let me know and I’ll decide then. I just wanted to be clear that the projections in the magazine help to show what sort of player each guy is, but there are lots of changes between that set and the update in March.

    Thanks for asking.

  12. RotoRob says:

    Thanks for clarifying that, Peter. Hope that helps you, Brent.

    Just got mine at my local newstand on 31st and Bdwy in Astoria. Excellent magazine as always. LOVE the dollar-value cheatsheets. Its about time you finally added them. Throw in some tiers next year and you’ll be perfect.
