One of the things I look forward to each spring in recent years, is getting my hands on a copy of the Maple Street Press Mets Annual. I’ve been a big fan since receiving my first review copy in 2008 and have been hooked ever since. The brand new 2011 edition is by far the most comprehensive edition ever and I encourage all of you to get your copy today.
Each issue is loaded with great analysis, scouting reports, historical pieces, interviews and it’s chock full of dazzling photography to compliment each feature and complete the perfect package.
It is a must-have for every Mets fan as you will rely on it as a valuable resource all season long while following the team.
Matthew Silverman heads an All Star lineup of great Mets bloggers and writers including Toby Hyde from Mets Minor League Blog, SNY’s Ted Berg of Ted Quarters, Jason Fry and Greg Prince of Faith and Fear in Flushing, and about a dozen more great contributors and personalities.
Features include a tribute to the 1986 Mets who celebrate their 25th anniversary this season, a look back at Mike Piazza’s most memorable Mets moment when baseball resumed play after 9/11, and insightful opinions on everything ranging from Mets uniforms to the Mets Hall of Fame to whether they should move the walls in at Citi Field, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
My favorite part is all the in-depth player profiles including stats, trends and leading indicators, and of course all the minor league scouting reports and the wealth of information on all the top prospects at each level of the Mets minor league system. It’s off the hook!
Plus, for all you Fantasy Baseball buffs out there, it even includes Bill James’ 2011 Fantasy Projections for the entire team.
This is a true Mets resource unlike any other, and you will find yourself using it again and again all season long It’s the perfect companion to following the Mets in 2011, and blows all those other generic baseball annuals out of the water.
I urge all of you to shell out the $13 bucks and get yourself a copy today at any bookstore or newsstand, or just click here to purchase it online.
