You may have noticed the change in appearance. The Bloguin Network has undergone some construction and we now have a cleaner, crisper template. The colors aren't my taste, but we're stuck with them for now. A new comments system should be coming at some point in time. Maybe one day, we'll have a forum.
For the foreseeable future, I will be working hard behind the scenes. The rankings/projections are time consuming and I'm working with Charlie Saponara and Mark Schruender on a 2011 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide. The (early) plan is for the downloadable guide to be free of charge.
The Wall of Fame is up! We have three past champions and three more to be crowned this coming season. Blog Wars is for the pros, but the Million Dollar Challenge and an unannounced blog league await you. Be sure to post a comment here if you want in the MDC.
Be sure to check out the rankings/projections. Feel free to ask about any of the statistics. I have a system, but the mechanical number crunching does include opinions of a player's future K%, Power and BABIP. It's a science and an art. If you don't agree with something, we can plug your opinions into the formula and create your own, personal projection.
A new poll is up, but it's not letting me vote yet... grrrr....
Be sure to check out Starbonell and I on Starbonell Station, Thursday at 7:30
Ahhh Chuckie Cheese. I heard about a huge fight that broke out there. Like 70 people involved. That's what I am aiming for here! Gimme those 10 tickets!!!!
The competition? Hmmm not sure. The league will fill easily. All it takes is one "Buster Posey is overrated" and one "Matt Holliday is overrated" post in the public message board and I'll have 25 people who want to knife me. The unannounced league is well... unannounced. However, it will be similar to the Four Corners or Enter the 16 Chambers fantasy football league. You will want to join. No other website will offer this kind of league, because I am the creator.
Alright, so I just commented and here is my take. While it was a pain to have to create a livefyre account to post I guess there is no way of getting around that. I do feel it will lead casual posters to post less since they don't want to take the time to create an account. I do enjoy the picture option but my picture was off/on (guess it's part of the beta). I also didn't like how it automatically made me follow the conversation when I posted (does this mean I get spammed an e-mail when someone comments?). The points feature is kinda weird. Is this like Chuckie Cheese where I can spend my 10 tickets on a stick of juicy fruit bubble gum?
On another note, how is the competition for my MDC belt looking? Is your BFF Fitzy in so I can put him in his place? Also, what’s the inside scoop on this new “unannounced” blog league? Are you going to go all Elizabeth Berkley in “Showgirls” and tease us? Jump the link for a sweet “Showgirls” GIF (PG-13 of course):
The 1B Rankings got a little bit more of a facelift than I anticipated. The projections remain the same, but earlier I had not given the HR enough value. Small adjustment made.
