Congrats to yesterday’s Appscars winner for Best Location App: Foursquare. And now it’s time to talk turkey, er, sports. It’s time to pick a champion among ESPN ScoreCenter, MLB At Bat, Draft Analyzer, NBA Game Time, and FanFeedr.

ESPN ScoreCenter: It doesn’t get much more complete and compelling than coming straight from the horse’s mouth, and ESPN has the experience and expertise to keep you up to the second with its ScoreCenter app. This free application brings you personalized scoreboards and live game details for every sport you love, including football, baseball, cricket, and Formula One racing. You can even catch just-cut video clips for free.

MLB At Bat: The $14.99 iPhone version of this award-winning app offers breaking news about all MLB clubs, winter meeting news coverage, interactive rosters and player stats for each team, and the 2011 schedule. There are even video highlights searchable by player or team. The iPad version lets you seamlessly flip through news articles, watch related videos, and share info with your friends. You can get the app on Android and BlackBerry as well. We can’t wait to see what’s new for At Bat 2011.

Draft Analyzer: It’s never too early to be thinking about next year’s fantasy football league. The free Draft Analyzer app for iOS, developed by Advanced Sports Media, offers up a cheat sheet of accurate player rankings for 380-plus players (based on ESPN and Yahoo scoring systems) and personalized draft pick recommendations. You can select your league size, draft position, and roster requirements. It also includes ADP values, bye-weeks, and projected fantasy points for all players.

NBA Game Time: Don’t miss out on the 2010-2011 NBA season with this free iOS, Android, and BlackBerry app. You can even customize the app for your favorite team. Get live game alerts, real-time team and player stats, and exclusive videos. You can even follow every game live. Be sure to check out your team’s full schedule as well as conference, division, and overall standings. And now you can use Game Time to fill in your playoff bracket.

FanFeedr: With this free iPhone, iPad, and Android app you can track all your favorite teams and players in real time with their latest info, scores, and tweets. You can comment on stories, players, teams, events, and more. Plus, you can view boxscores and recaps of recent games.
