So very much content for all of you

This is a very busy time, with the NHL and NBA playoffs both starting this weekend. It's an unusual development, since the start dates are usually staggered by at least a week, but it was necessitated by the NHL's Olympic break and subsequent elongation of the time needed for the regular season. Check for your NHL and NBA playoff draft boards starting Thursday night. They will tie into the Insider show on SportsTalkCleveland Thursday night from 8-10 PM (EDT), as you will read shortly.

Remember also that our NFL Draft coverage kicks into high gear this Friday with the release on of our 64-page draft E-book, covering the event from every angle possible. It will be free of charge and we are so enthusiastic about the quality that we will be bringing to you. It ties in perfectly to our broadcast on Draft Day from Noon to 6 PM (EDT), our continued draft coverage on, and our liveblogging right here on Draft Day.

Without further ado, here's the agenda for Thursday night's show:

8 PM: We will carry over from the Northcoast Hockey Tonight show (6-8 PM EDT) the final few rounds of our fantasy hockey playoff draft. Paul Teeple and I will begin the draft at approximately 7:15 PM and conduct the final few rounds and a brief review during this segment.

8:30 PM: Our "fantasy potpourri" continues as my co-host Jason Jones and I break down postseason fantasy hoops. In particular, we will review and highlight my draft board and suggested league guidelines.

8:50 PM: "Fantasy potpourri" extends into one more niche sport as we move towards a conclusion on our examination of how to set up a fantasy boxing league. With help from Jason and from Don Peterson, the hosts of "The Squared Circle" (Saturdays and Sundays from 2-3 PM EDT on, we have been progressing over the past few weeks towards establishing a framework for fantasy boxing. After tomorrow night, we should have almost all necessary information in front of our listeners in regards to this interesting concept.

9:00 PM: We welcome our new fantasy baseball analyst and my fellow "Life's a Pitch with Ken Detwiler" (Saturdays and Sundays from 11 AM to 1 PM on contributor Tim Foust for a look at the "buy and sell" plays in baseball three weeks into the season. Additionally, we will continue our examination of baseball in the post-amphetamines world.

9:20 PM: Jason and I take an in-depth look at the NFL Draft and offer a sneak preview of the free 64-page E-book to be unveiled on Friday.

Let me state again how much I appreciate having Jason as my co-host and as a vital contributor to In most ways, he was the lead talent on the E-book, offering not only a mock draft to go along with mine, but most of the position rankings and the Top 100 "Big Board." His love of fantasy sports truly rivals mine, which really says something. My partner at FantasyDrafthelp, Nathan Noy, was an outstanding co-host on the Insider show and left big shoes to fill (although we'll continue to hear from him from time to time, as I've previously noted). But Jason is doing an incredible job and is the right person at the right time to help me carry this brand forward, on the show and on the website as needed.
