Wake up: spring is in the air

The snooze button is no longer at our disposal. With pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training on Friday, the alarm on baseball research has been sounded.

The snooze button is no longer at our disposal. With pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training on Friday, the alarm on baseball research has been sounded.

Since nothing is quite as titillating as sleepers, we’ll start there. The search for a sexy, sleeping beast like Arian Foster is on.

National transfer

Pitching in the AL East is like running naked through a corn field backwards. It’s just not going to be fun. Still, Shaun Marcum managed to post a 3.64 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 165 strikeouts for the Blue Jays last year. Now on the Brewers, Marcum is poised for a big breakout.

Facing the NL?Central will be a breeze for him.

Hellboy on Earth

Speaking of AL?East pitchers, Jeremy Hellickson’s debut at the end of last season couldn’t have been much more impressive. After going 4-0 with 33 strikeouts in 36 1/3 innings, he’ll be an upside flier in all formats this year.

Bouncing back

Russell Martin has been absolutely brutal for two seasons. But now he’s batting in the Yankees’ stacked lineup, making it almost impossible not to rack up runs and RBI.

Top NBA pickups

Brandon Roy, SG, Blazers
Finally nearing a return, Roy’s dual knee scopes should give him short-term pain relief.

Chuck Hayes, PF/C,?Rockets
Classic underrated fantasy player. Has posted 9.8 rebounds and 1.9 steals over last 10 games.

Ty Lawson, PG, Nuggets
Don’t be late to the party if/when Chauncey Billups gets traded. The upside with Lawson is too high.
