Very interesting article. ;-D

But I thought Hongfu_Chen went by PlayingWithFire now. Did he switch back? Or did the hamster make a goof?

Nope, no goof. Hongfu Chen is PlayingWithFire's real name, which is why he wanted his screen name changed, which is why that wish was granted. However, in an article, the author's real name is published due to copyright stuff. ;-)

One question... how is Tony Armas Jr.'s uncle named Tony Armas? Did Jr.'s paternal grandparents have two sons named Tony?
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

I came by to post the very same thing... Tony Armas is his father, not his uncle. Though I guess it's possible that he has an uncle named Tony :)

oops, that's what I always thought(that Jr. is the son) and the wikipedia's Tony Armas(senior) page told me that it was his uncle for some reason. Now I look up Jr.

Armas was born in Puerto Píritu, Anzoátegui State, Venezuela. He is the son of former All-Star outfielder Tony Armas, and a nephew of former first baseman Marcos Armas.



My bad :-o

Well, performance wise his last start wasn't great but wasn't bad against Baltimore

can Arlo fix it?

also, I noticed that sleeper authors don't get icons but I still don't know how the Author's blurb work?
