    I love it, like others have said, you have to go to other sites to get advanced fielding metrics, but other than that it's indepensible.

      Is this product worth it?

        To be honest, probably not. You can get most of the information in there (maybe even all of it?) on many websites but espically http://www.baseball-almanac.com (sister site of this one). There is even some information on there that is NOT in the book.

            The Lee Sinins product, though aggravating at times, is well worth the money.

              One of the most aggravating aspects of it is that it is not easy to export its data to other products. You can do it but is a pain. Some others are: it doesn't tabulate OPS+ like BRef and pretty much everybody else does. Nor does it allow you to enter in specific kinds of streaks. Like who had the most hits in any 5 year stretch, who hit the most homers from rookie season to 4th season so on and so on.

              Other then that it is a very good product for quickly answering all kinds of questions. I don't buy it every year. I have bough it twice and I will probably wait another two years to buy it again.

                I like it, can't do it all but can any other system or method do it all. Easy to find stats by hitters/pitchers by left/right handed, height, weight, hitters/pitchers cumulative stats over the years, team stats, league stats. A feature called seasons with that gives number of seasons with a level of reaching numbers such as seasons with a specific number, examples.... number of seasons a hitter reached .600 slugging, 100 or more EBH'S, yearly awards and probably lots that I did not list above.

                Best feature, easy, simple to use.

                  Does anyone here have it? I'm considering buying it, and I want to know if anyone has it, and their opinions on it.

                    I love it too. Another small thing : for those who like Runs Created, Lee doesn't use the same formula as Bill James. I think he uses an older one. So it shows on « RC/27 outs » and ultimately on « OWP », but it's still a fantastic tool. I do less and less queries on the Lahman's database, but keeps downdoaling it too anyway.

                      It doesn't help that Sinins' bullheadedly refuses to let you access the data by HoF status.

                        Great Product, tho' not available for a MAC.

                        Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. That’s equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.

                          What program do the guys on TV use to come up with all the obscure stats for random situations? I know they cant be flipping through thousands of numbers and adding them up.
                          Don't think. It Can only hurt the ball club.

                            Much of what we hear from these broadcasters comes fro the Elias Sports Bureau. They supply the media with historical and statistical info.
                            They are the best, they have stats and records that we can't even think of, they have more than most other organizations.
                            As far as I know they do not supply much in the way of stats to individuals, only print media and TV.
                            I wish they would open up, get something going on the internet, for the public. I don't think they have done so as of yet. I phoned their office in NY about a year ago, inquired. At that time they said they had no plans to open up to the public.
                            I wish they would, they have it all, maybe more profitable for them to supply the media and not the public. They do have a yearly record book, it's the best book out there dealing with records.
