Writing Reports

I decided to take this weekend off from games so I can write reports for the MLB Draft Notebook. I'm getting close to having all the preliminary reports done, so I'm pretty much on schedule.

Tomorrow's entry, my weekend column, will be a book review of Bill Shanks' Scout's Honor, a book about the Braves' scouting and player development departments. It's one of the better books out there about drafting and developing when it comes to one team's philosophy, so I generally recommend it, though those of you that heavily favor statistical analysis might be offended by his writing at some points. He wrote it soon after Moneyball came out, so he's quite defensive about scouting.

I hope you guys have a nice, relaxing weekend, and I'll pop in a few times throughout to write a few things about my observations from the weekend without going to games.
