2014 SP Guide Delayed Release

This is never a fun announcement, but the 2014 Starting Pitcher Guide will be delayed from the February 5th (today) release date. In order to deliver a product I’m happy with and that is worth the hard-earned money y’all are paying, this is a necessary step.

The turning point was my computer corrupting a pair of chapters when it blue-screened and restarted. My computer has flashed the blue screen before, but then simply restarted and everything that was open was brought back to its last save point. I may have lost a paragraph or two in Word or a set of tabs in Chrome, but for the most part it was just an inconvenience. Well this time it was the nightmare scenario. Anyway, rewriting the chapters plus the work remaining made today too difficult and I didn’t want to rush to the finish line. All that said, even without the chapters lost, it was looking like the date would be tough to make so I won’t pin it all on the lost chapters. I picked the date arbitrarily and I probably shouldn’t have been so aggressive.

“Jeez Paul, don’t you know to under-promise and over-deliver?!”

Anyway, I know this will be upsetting to some (all?) of you, but we’re still on track to come out WAY earlier than last year’s early-March release date with the best SP guide yet. Everything will be ready to hit your inbox by February 12th. If any of you have a draft in that time and want your money back for an order, please let me know here and I will facilitate that. In fact, if you want it back for any reason, that’s fine and I can accommodate you, but I promise that you will be happy with the 2014 product if you don’t mind waiting a measly extra week.

It will be the best, most cleanly edited offering yet and I will continue posting samples from now until the release date at both PaulSporer.com and PaintTheBlack.com to hopefully tide you over.


The guide’s release date will still be the earliest ever, coming out nearly a month earlier than the 2013 iteration.

The guide will be released on February 12th!

There are a couple different options available to you this year:
