The Hardball Times Annual is not Mets-only, nor does it contain anything more Mets-ian than a review of the Mets season and some tidbits about players, but the annual does have some great baseball research and commentary.

(There is a little of Chris "The Animal" Carter in there!) I hope you enjoy. Now I'll shut up.
