THE 2017 BOUND EDITION OF THE NEWBERG REPORT
** PREORDERS UNDERWAY **
We are now taking preorders for the 2017 Bound Edition of the Newberg Report, my 18th annual book on the Texas Rangers. It’s nearly 300 pages commemorating the incredible story of the 2016 season, all chronicled in the book in daily, exhaustive, emotional detail. For any Rangers fan, this book will be one to look back on for years and years.
Preorders should ship in plenty of time to get your books in time for the Holidays.
The 2017 Bound Edition, with forewords written by Rangers third base coach Tony Beasley and MLB Network Radio host Casey Stern, not only looks back on 2016 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 for trades that could dramatically alter the roster this off-season.
More than 3,000 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 book picks up right where the 2016 Bound Edition left off, taking you from the October 2015 opening of last off-season through the October 2016 playoff run and containing every report I wrote in that span (including every “Trot Coffey” rumor dump). The Bound Edition is the most thorough account you’ll find of the unforgettable twists and turns that the 2016 season took, and of the implications of the personnel moves that highlighted it.
Not just a complete record of the Rangers’ season, the book includes a feature section comprised of an entire section of new material that won’t ever appear online. Included in that section are rankings and analysis of more than 70 Rangers prospects throughout the club’s highly ranked farm system, making the Bound Edition a primer on the players who should help keep this organization in contention for years to come. There’s also the annual “40-Man Roster Conundrum” chapter, breaking down the organization’s decisions headed toward the Rule 5 Draft, an important procedural opportunity each December to add talent and make sure it isn't lost.
The photographs that appear on the glossy front and back covers and inside the book, as always, feature not only the club’s big leagues stars but also a number of the Rangers' top young big leaguers and prospects, and are perfect for autographs.
The 2017 Bound Edition is $24.95 per book, plus shipping. An e-Edition will also be available for $9.99.

I’m extremely biased but, trying to pretend to be slightly objective, I think this is the kind of book that any Rangers fan’s library should include. You should talk yourself into buying copies for your boss, your secretary, your neighbor, your Uber driver, your kids who are always in need of new reading material for school, and you.
I’m happy to answer any questions you have.
