Pre-Order the 2018 Bound Edition of the Newberg Report.
Pre-orders are now being taken!
The 2018 Bound Edition of the Newberg Report is my 19th annual book on the Texas Rangers. It’s over 200 pages commemorating the story of the fascinating 2017 Rangers 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.
The 2018 Bound Edition, with forewords written by Rangers Assistant GM Mike Daly and Rangers beat writer Levi Weaver, not only looks back on 2017 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 2017 Bound Edition left off, taking you from the opening of the 2016-17 off-season in the immediate aftermath of a second straight division title and playoff run through the end of the 2017 season, and containing every report I wrote in that span (including a handful of “Trot Coffey” rumor dumps). The Bound Edition is the most thorough account you’ll find of the unforgettable twists and turns that the 2017 season took — including history made by Adrian and Pudge, on the same day — and of the implications of the personnel moves that highlighted it, including one that involved the biggest “seller” trade Texas has made in years.
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 quickly improving 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.

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. I’m happy to answer any questions you have.
