The MLB season is about to get underway so for those looking for some last minute advice on which players to target in your fantasy baseball drafts, we simulated the 2011 season using MLB 11 The Show to offer a bit of help. You definitely want to grab guys who will be atop the Triple Crown categories to rack up the fantasy points, so for hitters, look for Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols to have another beast of a season with 50+ Home Runs and nearly 120 RBIs. Also, look for Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez to have a strong follow-up to last year’s breakout season, along with Joey Votto, who should hit around .320 with 45+ Home Runs and over 100 RBIs. On the mound, you’ll want to grab hurlers who can get you wins, strikeouts, and a low ERA, so look for aces C.C. Sabathia (20 wins), Tim Lincecum (250 strikeouts), and Felix Hernandez (2.50 ERA) to be the cream of the crop this year.

This week though, we wanted to give you all a sneak peak at some of the DLC planned for LittleBigPlanet 2 over the next few months. As all of the loyal original LittleBigPlanet players will remember, we always like to ensure that there is plenty of new content to freshen up your creations or just keep your Sackboy looking sharp. For starters, be sure to pick up your free St. Patrick’s Day costume from the PlayStation Store this week. It’s Sackboy’s yearly chance to show his Irish spirit – you wouldn’t want to deprive him of that, would you?
