Knucklebones Radio Hi HBD'ers. I've found myself a new hobby and I do mean new. I've always been a big fan of talk radio and now with the internet I have a chance to give it a try. Im going to do a test run to get the nerves out and decide wether or not I will stick to fake baseball only or random subjects.My group on Facebook is Knucklebones Radio - Please join up if you do facebook. I will also be putting more effort into my personal blog This is for bored people and complete HBD fanatics.
Its also a good site for 9/11 truth/New World Order/Tea Party talk. All welcome with your opinions. I suggest freedomizer and nformd radio on blogtalkradio for those topics. You can also freind those groups on facebook if you have interest in that. As is well documented in these leagues, Im pretty nuts. I'm not going to deny it, but maybe I can thrive in it. If nothing else my talk shows should be entertaining once I get started. You can call into any of the shows with Skype or your own phone. Thanks for wasting 2 minutes of your life reading this if you did.

Defensive Efficiency ratings

This is quick and dirty... I calculated Baseball Prospectus's Defensive Efficiency rating for our league. It's designed to give you an idea of how many balls in play get converted to outs. It should take into account both fielding percentage and number of balls a player gets to. A higher number means more balls were converted into outs.

When animals attack...

The 'Goats smell blood in the AL for a wild card spot and made a move when the Silencers decided to rebuild.

Enrique Diaz becomes the Ace and with his 20m contract he'll be around awhile. Talent like this isn't free and doesn't float around often in this league. 'Goats management basically said "pick three" and didn't put up too much of a fight in negotiations.

Lariel Sosa, Andrew Rivers, Prince Knight leave the 'Goats for greener pastures in moving to Syracuse. Syracuse always seems to be in the hunt and these three should ensure they remain a menace for years to come.

The 'Goats are elated to bring Diaz into the fold and hope he can help them shock the world and snag a wild card spot. Time will tell. Until then the city of Chicago jumps for joy.
