This weeks article will be a little different than weeks past. I have found that this is the best way to bring you the information you need for this upcoming week of Fantasy Baseball. I have added the rising and falling stars that are normally found in the Power Rankings articles. I will save those for team news only. This will be player news only. ENJOY!

Preview of the 2014 Preakness Stakes

Dan Bylsma’s Penguins collapsed after leading the Rangers 3-1 in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. His job is no doubt in jeopardy and here’s why.

San Francisco has taken the top spot in this weeks Power Rankings. I was very off on some of my rising stars last week. I was correct on almost all of my falling stars. I always give full disclosure to see what I got right and what I got wrong. 


Agree with where your team stands? Think my rising and falling stars are outrageous? Let me know. Have any suggestions or people you think should be on the list? Let me know. Follow me on twitter

Reports that Dion Phaneuf is being actively shopped surfaced yesterday as reported by Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos via twitter, citing independent sources. However conflicting reports have surfaced today, most recently from TSN’s Darren Dreger stating that Toronto is not shopping their Captain but would be open to discussions. I'll take a look at rumored and possible suitors for the big blue liner below. 

I will keep an eye out for any updates and have them to you as soon as possible. Any comments or questions please feel free to contact me.

The Fantasy baseball season is in full swing. Listed below are stats for the season so far as well as the last 14 days. The categories listed are the most commonly used among fantasy baseball sites. I chose to do season long to see where everyone currently stands and the last 14 days to see who is heating up!!!! Some pitching categories aren't worth listing in the last 14 days because Starting Pitchers only play ever 5th game.

The Rockies bats are heating up. Teams are staring to pull away in their division. Some very good match ups for hitters this week. Will anyone be able to hit Johnny Cueto this year? Too bad Cincinnati can't give him any run support

Agree, disagree, suggestions??? Let me know. Follow me on twitter at

The 2014 NFL draft is upon us. Every year highly drafted players become busts and very low drafted players become studs. Here are five of each that just may be that. Bust or Stud?

J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS is what you will hear often tomorrow night when the Jets select with the 18th overall pick. The Jets have a decent amount of picks this year and GM John Idzik has a real chance to improve this football team. 


Just three years ago the future seemed as bright as the shine on the six Lombardi trophies proudly displayed at the Steelers training facility on the South Side of Pittsburgh. Coming off a five-year stretch in which they won two Super Bowls and played in three, the organization looked to have most of the pieces already in place to continue to build another championship caliber team. On January 8, 2012 everything seemed to change on a simple slant pass.


The draft is two days away and unless your name is Rick Smith, you have no idea what Houston will do with the first pick of the draft. The truth is, nether do I. I have a good idea though. I have a good idea of what each team should do. What I think doesn't matter. All that matters is what each team thinks of each player. I don't like the term "Mock Draft", so this is draft considerations and who I think teams will pick. 

Teddy Bridgewater will come into Thursday night as a forgotten man and very uncertain where he will land. Once considered the best Quaterback to come out of this years draft and maybe first overall pick has seen his stock fall. What really happen to the stock of Mr. Bridgewater?
