FDH Insider/Goon Squad April 30

By Rick Morris

The new FDH Wednesday night lineup will rock your evening just like it did last week in its debut in the timeslot.

On tonight’s special edition of THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER (7-9 PM EDT on, we examine the “Vin Baker” and “Brian Giles” candidates of 2008 in Major League Baseball. FDH baseball contributor Tim Foust coined these terms to describe the very rare exceptions to the rule that players will eventually regress or progress to the mean as the season continues. Up next in Hour One, we conduct our fourth annual Triple Crown draft as we turn our attention to Saturday’s Kentucky Derby. Our draft board is right here and the charts for the various horses are available at the Daily Racing Form website.

In the second hour, we review the 2008 NFL Draft, including FDH’s gavel-to-gavel coverage on the Network over the weekend. We have one unique metric that we will share with you: a numerical rating of how teams fared in the draft according to the list of FDH Top 200 Prospects regardless of position. You can find those rankings, along with all of our other one-of-a-kind coverage in our annual draft guide, available for free download right here. Additionally, our Senior Editor and Chief NFL Draft Correspondant Jason Jones will have his own winners and losers to discuss, as well as his breakdown on a wild weekend of trading and frequent disregard for value.

On THE GOON SQUAD (9-10 PM EDT), we review some NHL news and notes (Philly celebrates tradition a week after the league quashes it in Detroit, new GM in Vancouver, no Brian Burke migration to Toronto) before examining the less-than-competitive overall picture of the NHL conference semifinals. We now have a strong look at how the Western Finals will shake out and we’ll have your first preview, in addition to an analysis of what lies ahead out East.

Join us for all of the action Wednesday night on STN.
