Thursday night agenda and other notes

The next weekly edition of THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER on airs Thursay, April 13 from 8 to 10 PM EDT as I, Rick Morris, the "Mr. Thursday Night" of STC, will bring you two hours of fantasy talk after Paul Teeple and I bring you two hours of hockey on NORTHCOAST HOCKEY TONIGHT. We've got a lot planned, as per usual:

8:00 PM: Fantasy potpourri takes center stage, as we begin in earnest to break down fantasy postseason leagues for basketball and hockey, as well as continuing to discuss how to operate a fantasy boxing league and a racing Triple Crown league. We will have a Triple Crown mock draft on the show on Thursday, April 27.

8:30 PM: Baseball sizzlers and fizzlers through the first week-and-a-half and how you should react to the status of various players.

9:00 PM: An update on baseball's amphetamine testing -- what does the start of the season tell us about how players are doing without their "greenies" (hint: strikeouts are way up) and how baseball might be "dealing with it" (hint: baseballs are "for whatever reason" flying out of parks at an increased rate. These developments are as we previously predicted in a paper we put together with the Free Market Transparency Group (FMTG). Click here to read the paper.

9:20 PM: Our NFL Draft coverage continues. Click here to read the most recent mock draft projects, posted April 13 on We will start this segment with a HUGE announcement about our Draft Day coverage on April 29, which will combine an all-day broadcast on with the analysis you have come to expect.

That broadcast will be the culmination of our months-long preparation of draft coverage. It will, as it did last year, include an in-depth E-book dedicated to the 2006 draft in conjunction with

I urge all of you to visit Cleveland Sports Mania, the online home of valued associate and host and producer Jason Jones. He posts his mock draft with much additional analysis, especially for the top half of the draft.

In closing right now ...

with the establishment of a new URL for the "fantasy draft help brand" came a fair deal of trepidation about how this necessary move would be received. But I am very happy to say that, within the first six weeks, we have moved up to a level I never imagined possible in the Alexa rankings. I thought it would take more time and effort to reach this point. We're only beginning the relaunch of this brand, quite frankly, so there is reason for great confidence based on how we have been received to date. Thank you all for continuing to follow our efforts and stay tuned for the fun still to come.
