As the season progressed, three point guards charged to the head of the pack. They were: Sacramento’s Tyreke Evans, Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings, and Golden State’s Stephen Curry.

NFL Draft Analysis: Winners and Losers

The event that is the NFL Draft took place this weekend, spanning three days for the first time ever.

For my first post here at Sports Confidential, I thought I would take a shot at predicting the winners of each division  for the 2010 MLB season. I know the season is already underway, but nothing has happened yet to change my original predictions I made prior to Opening Day.

Offseason additions and subtractions have changed the landscape in many of the divisions. While some teams look like clear-cut favorites to reach the postseason, other divisions appear to be more of a toss-up. Part 1 will cover my predictions for the American League. Without further ado, my AL division winner predictions:
