Ron Shandler’s ground-breaking Broad Assessment Balance Sheet (BABS) has been creating thousands of fantasy winners since 2015.    Here is what you get with your membership:
  1. BABS ratings, asset group rankings and cheat sheets for 2023 drafts — for virtually all league formats — with accommodations for MLB’s rule changes.
  2. The FISH List, which integrates each player’s skills profile and his ADP into a single, optimal draft ranking.
  3. Risk Costs, an innovate method to manage your own risk budget.
  4. Dozens of articles that uncover your best targets and players to avoid.
  5. Custom reports from the BABS Database: If you are in an AL/NL-only league, want lists sorted alphabetically, by ADP or position, the database can meet your needs.
  6. Asset group analyses: A review of the deeper skills profiles and how the marketplace is handing you prime profit opportunities.
  7. BABS minor league coverage: Ratings for nearly every Double-A and Triple-A player, and articles showing how to use BABS to prospect for tomorrow’s stars.
  8. Strategies for the upcoming season: BABS puts a unique spin on how you should approach auctions, snake drafts, H2H, salary cap and best ball competitions in 2023.
  9. Mailbags: Ask your questions — We’ll select the most interesting posers for insightful answers.
  10. Members-only message boards: It’s your community of really smart BABSians. Ask questions, offer insights, vent – it’s your neighborhood.
  11. BABS ratings for RotoLab software: Run your BABS draft with the best software on the market. Once you try it, you’ll never go back. (Only members get the unlock key. Software sold separately.)
  12. BABS Baseball leagues: This innovative Rotisserie-style format offers 10-team leagues with 50-man rosters and BABS-relevant categories.
