THE
2010 BOUND EDITION OF THE NEWBERG REPORT

 

Newberg-Report-2010-cov-FC.jpg

I’m
now taking preorders for the 2010 Bound Edition of the Newberg Report, my 11th
annual book on the Texas Rangers.  It’s over 300 pages commemorating the
2009 season, an intense, dynamic year of baseball that gave us more ups and
downs than we’d seen from this franchise in a long time.  It’s all
chronicled in the book.

 

The
2010 Bound Edition, with forewords written by Peter Gammons and Kevin
Goldstein,
not only looks back on 2009 but also serves as a primer on what
you can expect from this organization for years to come.  Nowhere can you
find more information and analysis on the players that the Rangers are
developing as future members of the major league team and, in some scenarios,
as ammunition to trade for veterans brought in to join the core of the club.

 

More
than 1000 of you on this mailing list are past customers of the Bound Edition,
but for those of you who are relatively new to the Newberg Report, here is what
you can expect from the book:

 

THE FEATURES

 

The
book picks up right where the 2009 Bound Edition left off, taking you from
October 13, 2008 to October 12, 2009 and containing every report I wrote in
that span.  It’s the most thorough account you’ll find of the many twists
and turns that the 2009 season took, and of the implications of the personnel
moves that highlighted it.  Not just a complete record of the Rangers’
2009 season, the book includes a feature section comprised of more than 50
pages of new material that won’t ever appear on the website or in any e-mail
deliveries.  Included in that section are rankings and analysis of more
than 70 Rangers prospects, broken down by position.

 

The
“Poised” rankings of the 10 minor league position players and 10 minor league
pitchers that I’m predicting breakout years for in 2010 are back, as is the
annual “40-Man Roster Conundrum” chapter, in which I look at the roster
decisions facing the organization this winter plus an explanation of how the
Rule 5 Draft works. 

 

The
Bound Edition contains complete 2009 statistics for every player who appeared
with the Rangers’ big league club, all six minor league affiliates, and the
Dominican Summer League squads, plus full details on the Rangers’ 2009 draft.

 

The
glossy front and back covers once again feature action shots – taken by some of
the best photographers in the business – of some of the Rangers’ top young
players, perfect for autographs.  The cover art was designed by the
exquisitely talented Drew Sheppard and, as usual, the great Marty Yawnick of
Type A Design masterminded the layout.

 

The
book itself is full of player photos as well.

 

THE PRICE

 

As
always, the 2010 Bound Edition is $25.

 

Because
I have to front the costs, if you plan to buy copies of the book I would
appreciate it if you’re able to send payment now.

 

If
you pay for your order by November 15, I will waive the standard $2-per-book
shipping charges.  Accordingly, the book will cost you only $23 if you pay
by November 15, either by (1) check or money order, or (2) credit card through www.PayPal.com .  Since sales of the
book have increased each year, it’s easier on me if I know early roughly how
many to have the printer generate for the first run.  The books should be
ready for delivery around December 15 at the latest, in time to help you not
only stock your own reference shelf or coffee table but also fill Christmas and
Chanukah lists for your friends and family. 

 

I
know the $2 discount isn’t much, but I don’t have much of a margin to deal
with.

 

As
we’ve done the past several years, we’ll have a book release party, with
players in attendance to sign autographs and shake hands and do a Q&A with
us.  Details soon on the location, and the date.

 

I
also have all the previous editions of the Bound Edition for sale.  The
price breakdown is as follows:

 

2010
Bound Edition – $25 (but $23 if you pay by November 15)

2009

2008

ORDERING

 

For
those who are in a position to pay now, I’d appreciate it.  You can order
by credit card through PayPal (more on that in a moment) or you can send a
check or money order in whatever amount your order comes to, payable to “Jamey
Newberg,” at:

In
addition to your check or money order, please make sure I have your mailing
address, and specify how many of each book you want.

 

Ordering
by credit card through PayPal is very easy.  Just go to www.paypal.com, select the “Send money”
option, and type in GJSneaker@sbcglobal.net
where it asks for the e-mail account (and again, make sure you identify exactly
what years of the Bound Edition you want, so we know what to ship to you).

 

If
PayPal is new to you, signing up is extremely user-friendly, costs you nothing,
and is completely secure. Go to https://www.paypal.com/refer/pal=gjsneaker%40sbcglobal.net
and follow the simple instructions.

 

For
inventory and printing purposes, I would appreciate it if you would respond to
this e-mail and let me know how many copies of the books you plan to order,
whether you’re sending payment to me immediately or not.

 

TO SUM UP

 

I
want you to know how much I appreciate the level of support you all have given
me in every phase of the Newberg Report.  Your support in the form of
buying the Bound Edition is a concrete way to sustain it.  If you have
questions about the book, please ask.

 

Again,
here’s the drill:

 

1.
Respond to this e-mail and let me know what you plan to order, even if
tentatively (please do this whether you are taking advantage of the early discount
or instead plan to pay later on).

 

2.
Pay by credit card at www.PayPal.com,
sending it to the gjsneaker@sbcglobal.net
account.  Payment now helps a bunch, if you’re in a position to do it.

 

3.
Or send payment by check or money order to:

 

Jamey
Newberg

Vincent
