    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.

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

    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.

    Sinins Encyclopedia

    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 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.

    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.

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

    I think he means Lee Sinins product.

    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.

    It may not do it all but it does a good number of things, is easy to navigate and it's fast. All around, cheap and a great tool to have around

    I still haven't figured out a way to get my access to sort based on 5 best seasons or even first 8 or anything like that. If I do that I have to do it manually, which means I don't look into things like that very often on a large scale.
