A Much Needed 2015 SP Guide Update

Hey everybody! I’ve been understandably getting a lot of questions regarding the release of the 2015 Starting Pitching Guide. It is still very much on track and we’re in the homestretch of finishing. It will be out by the end of the month which is of course next Saturday. We wanted it out sooner, but I didn’t foresee getting my new gig with Fangraphs which has definitely altered my timetable. I would’ve started sooner had I known, but even though it’s delayed the SPG some, I couldn’t be happier about it because of the opportunity with Fangraphs. At any rate, I appreciate your patience, I promise it will be worth it!

  1. So it’s Fangraphs fault? 😀

  2. 3 weeks late and a 100% price increase. Par for the course.

  3. Congrats on the Fangraphs gig. Looking forward to this year’s guide.

  4. Can’t. Freaking. Wait. Thanks for the update. Pizza guy- it’s worth every damn penny. Even now, it’s still under priced. Would rather it be late, knowing they’re still working their tails off to get it right. Also, congrats on the fangraphs gig, really fired up you’re back on the pod scene!

  5. I really don’t mean to hate, I love the product, but the SP guide gets lets valuable every day it is delayed. There is just so much good information in there and its tough to process it all before a draft when it gets delayed like this. Big difference between the original promise of “single digits” in February and end of February.

    • and thats less not lets. Sorry for the type

      • I understand all of that. I’d have loved to have it out in early February, too. But I’m working day and night to get it done as soon as possible now. I’ll start much sooner next year given my Fangraphs job and we will be out in early February again like we were last year. Sorry again for the delay.

  6. Love you on Fangraphs and can’t wait to dive into the 2015 SP Guide for this year’s Kluber. Thanks by the way. Any way for an early shout out of a release date? I need to give a couple days notice to take a personal day…. though (cough cough) other plans are in the works.

  7. Paul, I preordered the SP Guide and was just charged for the Yearly membership and SP Guide at Painttheblack. Do you have an email I can reach you at?

  8. I bought the 2014 edition and thought it was miles ahead of other publications.Now with the price increase,that brings it close to 40$ for me as i’m Canadian.That alone is a deal-breaker for me.I guess i should have pre-ordered when it was priced at 20$ not that long ago.

  9. Pizza guy…don’t order it…if you’re in any of my leagues, definitely don’t order it.
    Best resource in the industry, bar none….if I could trust a hitting resource, half as much as I trust Paul, the work he puts into this, and his theory of the holy trinity of what to look for in a pitcher profile…I’d pay twice this much, but it’s not out there…
    I’ll consider the $30 to include back charges for years ago when it was available for free, or a small donation…

  10. Anxious for the Guide. Last years guide proved very helpful . Tommy John paid a visit to my team. The guide put me in position to be optimistic to regroup.. , Stroman !! And others…. Great insights. Thanks!!!

  11. I can’t wait, what time on Saturday midnight? “My Precious” pitching guide, it’s a great buy. I liked one of the previous comments about a hitters guide. it would be nice to find one that is as spot on as the pitching guide.

  12. Here we are. I hope we see it today

    Draft for me started 2 days ago.

    More expensive and way too late this year Paul. Earlier next year please!

  13. I’m also anxiously awaiting. Too late for my 1st 2 NFBC DC leagues, but I have a 3rd starting today and my keeper league auction draft in March.

  14. “It will be out by the end of the month.” Where is it??

    • Again, did you even order? I’ll gladly refund you. It’s a 3-man operation over here and we’re busting our asses. You seem to think I’m glad it’s not already released and in everyone’s hands. I’ve been working morning, noon, and night on this thing for months. How many drafts did you miss? Give me some sort of identifier for your order (email, paypal id) and I’ll refund you.

  15. Hey Paul. Any update on when the SPG will be ready? Thank you!

  16. Loved the book last year, but man that price…why such an increase?
