Picked up the Guide at B&N at the Rio Gaithersburg, Maryland location this weekend.  They always seem to carry it.

The Park Slope B+N has long been a mess. Terrible alphabetization, too.

There is a web page that lets you find where magazines are on sale locally. It is called Magfinder. The Guide is listed in the Sports section, not the Baseball one.

You can also order the Guide at thefantasysportsguide.com for mail delivery if you click through the Click Here to Buy link

Good luck!

I hit a Barnes & Noble two hours away....nothing.  Is there a way to order it?  Country living is killing me.

Picked it up at the Brooklyn Heights' B&N.  It surprises me how much better the Heights' B&N is curated than the Park Slope branch, and not just with baseball magazines.  There's an opportunity for some young, enterprising nerd to suggest an upgrade and take a percentage of increased sales!

The Dartmouth Bookstore, which used to stock a dozen copies, is no more (it wasn't subsidized by Dartmouth, because how could you subsidize a local bookstore on a piddly $5 billion endowment?) and I tried the CVS trick mentioned here but...CVS stocks no magazines.  This world is not recognizable to me.

not at the B&N in Park Slope (only Lindy's); just moved to the area, so don't know the history of this location.  It always has been available at the B&N in Brooklyn Heights.

Picked up mine at the local ShurSave in NE PA.  Great reading while the snow flies fast and furious.

Congratulations on 20 years and even though I wasn't playing fantasy baseball for the full Score, I'm proud to say that I have the last 14, and they remain the only 14 fantasy baseball magazines I have ever purchased.

I really enjoyed the article by Bruce Buschel on his 15 ways to make baseball more watchable on TV.  Reading the column makes you realize all that we have become used to and all that we are missing. Just because we expect to see The Devil's Triangle (#1) doesn't make it right.  Some of his suggestions are clearly tongue-in-cheek (#12, Buy the magazine and read for yourself!) but the overall take-away that "it's time to shake up the same-old same-old" hits the mark for me.  You know...say goodbye to the landlord for me, the son of a bitch has always bored me. I think many of his ideas have potential if done right, especially "The Close Up".  I wonder who would make the best Angel Eyes??

Keep up the good work, Rotoman.

I found it yesterday in the Barnes and Noble on Union Square in New York. Peter says its official due date is next Tuesday.
