Sabermetrics and scouting -- together at last!
The Minor League Baseball Analyst is the first book to fully integrate sabermetrics and scouting. It was founded by Deric McKamey, who was a long-term Bill James disciple, graduate of Major League Baseball's scout school and is currently a scout for the St. Louis Cardinals. Now in its third year under the helm of Rob Gordon ahd Jeremy Deloney, the MLBA provides a unique brand of analysis for over 1000 minor leaguers.
