If you've read the annual THE SCOUTING REPORT or THE SCOUTING NOTEBOOKthat Harper & Row, STATS Inc., and The Sporting News published from 1983-2006 you know just how in-depth the scouting reports were that evaluated player "tools".

Unfortunately those publications are no longer published and while Baseball Prospectus is a great read, it doesn't completely replace the detailed scouting reports that THE SCOUTING REPORT and THE SCOUTING NOTEBOOK provided. Yes, we have stats and lots of them. Baseball statistics have never been as accessbile as they are now. It was a totally different Baseball world in 1982 when the first Bill James Baseball Abstract was published for national distribution and the Elias Sports Bureau tried to claim Baseball statistics as it's own private domain.

Read the MLB.com news blog for insight into how the DYNASTY League Baseball player ratings are evaluated:
