Rangers 2011 Annual is shipping

New, 126 comments

Just a reminder that the Maple Street Press 2011 Rangers Annual is shipping -- those of you who have pre-ordered already should hopefully have gotten yours already, and those who haven't ordered can do so online by clicking here.

They will also be going on sale at bookstores, news stands, and the like around the North Texas area on March 1, if you'd prefer to pick one up that way.

For those who don't know, the annual includes:

AJM's 2011 preview and position by position breakdown

Christopher Fittz's look back at the 2010 season

Rob Cook's analysis of the Ranger lineup and who is best suited to hit cleanup

Josh Garoon's forecasting of the Rangers' 2011 pitching situation

Robbie Griffin's examination of the career of Colby Lewis and his long, strange journey

Joey Matches' analysis of how the Rangers have turned their fortunes around in recent years by focusing more on defense

AJM's look at how the Rangers' baserunning has been a weapon since Ron Washington took over

Professor Parks' pieces on the flameout of the Rangers' highly touted catching prospects and on Scouting 101

Jason Cole's profile of the team's top three upper-level pitching prospects -- Martin Perez, Tanner Scheppers, and Michael Kirkman

Brett Perryman's top 20 prospect list and look back at how the 2007 season laid the groundwork for the 2010 championship season

Maury Brown's epic piece on the Ranger sale and bankruptcy, the definitive work on the subject (I believe)

A Q&A with Chuck Greenberg

AJM's look back at the 1996 NYY/Texas playoff series

Adam Stellar takes us behind the scenes on life as an MLB stringer

Jeff Sullivan previews the rest of the A.L. West

And there are smaller pieces on the history of Ranger ownership, the best pitching seasons in Ranger history, and Ben's "Top 10 Prospect Names" list.

If anyone has already gotten their book and wants to comment about how awesome it is (or what you don't like about it, so that if I'm asked to do this again next year, I can take those criticisms into account), feel free to do so in the comments...
