Some good stuff that I've across that you need to check out...

  • Statistical Sleepers- Batter's BABIP(Batting Average on Balls In Play). For the baseball sabermetrics lovers, this looks at some hitters that hit into some bad luck in 2008 and are nice sleepers for real baseball in 2009, and for your fantasy team.(Fantasy Pros 911)
  • Ben's New Years Resolution as a Suns fan... Great blog from our buddy Ben who runs "Ben's Suns Blog". We're friends with Ben in real life even! Therefore, I'll be including his links all the time and force you to read his blogs, which you can enjoy even if you're not a Phoenix Suns fan. He understands the game of basketball better than anybody I've ever known, and he's funny as hell. So check it out and tell him the Thigh sent you. (Ben's Suns Blog)
