Default opinions on baseball america subscription?

for any subscribers or past subscribers - is the subscription worth it? i like prospecting and am always looking for good info but i have other free sources and once i find a player i like i just follow their games/stats. i also just like to read about baseball so theres some value there.. but does a subscription to BA give you a prospecting "edge" in your opinions?

I'd be interested to hear others' opinions as well on this subject. I get their free emails but the information is limited.

I have been a subscriber for a long time. I really like the writing and its a great source of stats and team-by-team info. I think it gives a good look at whats going on with the big prospects as well as information on who might be the next surprising sleeper prospects.

If you have the money for it, I recommend a subscription.

I find it to be worth the money.

I subscribe to about 10 magazines and it is the only one I notice when an issue hasn't made it to me. It's expensive, 120ish for two years. I think it's well worth the money.

I know people were asking about subscribing to BA about a month ago and I said they were running a great special.
