Who is winning the pennant?

The American League Central should be a fun race this year, as 4 of the 5 teams are good enough to take the title (sorry Twins' fans).  In 2014 the Tigers won the division, but the Royals ended up turning their Wild Card berth into an AL Pennant. The Tribe won 85 games, and look to take the next step this season. The White Sox won the offseason, and turned themselves into a legit contender in just one offseason. The Twins have a loaded farm system, and help will be arriving in 2015, but it won't be enough to save this season. Let's dive in as I predict the 2015 standings, and preview each team's lineup and rotation. 

There are 2 ways to approach the NFL draft.  Draft for position, or draft the best player available.  Recently the Giants have gone the route of postion.  Every Giant fan has a different opinon into which direction the Giants should go with the 9th overall pick in the 2015 draft, but trust me when I say the following routes would be ideal. 

Every year super stars don't perform, and relative nobodies have all-star seasons

The American League West was led by a 3 headed monster last year, as the Angels, A's, and Mariners all finished with 87 wins or more. The Angels actually won 98 games, but couldn't turn that into a World Series appearance. The Mariners were the odd man out, finishing 1 game behind the A's for second place, and barely missing a Wild Card berth. The Angels have returned mostly the same team, however the A's and Mariners have made some major moves, some positive and some negative. The shake up in Oakland and Seattle should change the landscape of this division race, and don't forget the improving Astros, who would love to throw their hat into the ring. With all that in mind, here is my 2015 predictions for the AL West:

There will be some guys who surprise us and surpass expectations, and others who will disappoint us.

The big free agent names have all signed somewhere. With that taken care of, the draft can be predicted a little differently. Here is 2.0. Love it or hate it let me know on twitter https://twitter.com/KingScally

The March Madness is upon us ! Wanna check out Incarcerated Bob's bracket ? Look no further !

It's finally here, March Madness is here and I can't wait! The bracket is loaded with talent and intriguing squads. The undefeated Wildcats come in as the #1 overall team, no big shock there. They are without a doubt the odd on favorites to win it all, but we want to talk about some sleeper teams. Below will show a sleeper that can make some noise in this year's tournament from each region;

For basically 2 decades the Braves or Phillies have won the division, with only a few exceptions. That isn't the case now, with the potential juggernaut Nationals at the top, and the young upstart Mets and Marlins behind them. The former top dogs are in full rebuild mode in Philly and Atlanta. I'll be honest, as a Mets fan nothing will make me happier than seeing the Phillies and Braves battling for last place all season. Here's how I see this division standings for 2015:

Well, the first couple of hours of the start of the new NFL season were, interesting to say the least.  We've seen players get some nice new contracts, video game type trades, and some big names still waiting to see what colors they will be promoting come August.
As far as the New York Giants are concerned, they have picked up 5 new role players to their rosters.  Some known names, some not so known.  So after the first couple hours, here is how I would grade their moves;

 

Projecting the field of 64 can be difficult. A lot will depend on what happens in the conference tournaments

Fantasy sports is nothing more than just a guess right?  Hopefully your first round pick doesn't get injured on opening day. Here's who I think will be top 5 at their positions at the end of the season.
