Welcome to the new UEFL

Welcome to the new home of the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League. Formerly cascreamindude.livejournal.com, we have modernized and moved to umpireejections.blogspot.com. Not only does our new subdomain name seem a little more baseball oriented, the features and accessibility of the Blogger service are better than those of the Livejournal service.

As for the website's content and ejections, the cascreamindude.livejournal.com website will remain operation for archiving purposes. Beginning with tonight's ejection (Doug Eddings (1)), all UEFL posts - Ejections, Odds & Ends, etc. - will be made to the new umpireejections.blogspot.com site.

This should be a much smoother and easier forum for everyone. Over the coming weeks, we plan to transfer this season's ejections to the new umpireejections.blogspot.com site, while keeping these same posts in existence at the livejournal site, too.

That sounds cool. I saw you repost Brian Knight's ejection on Twitter, was that meant to be Doug's?

I think that was twitterfeed autoposting that to twitter from LJ. I had done a manual post to the LJ Knight post. LJ has had some problems, most notably with RSS feeds and the significant delay in updating for anonymous users. If you log out of livejournal and visit cascreamindude.livejournal.com, you'll notice that all activity from the past several hours isn't visible. It's a bug with the LJ site and one of the many reasons we decided to come over to Blogger.

We were also getting a lot of spam...

Yeah, I've had an LJ page for years, but none of my friends are there anymore. A couple are here instead. LJ does seem to have more than its fair share of problems these days. Do I remember correctly that its parent ownership is in Russia now? Anyway, the best part over there was always the friend list/privacy function for more personal blogs. Not really suited to something like this.

Here's what I want to know...

There MUST be some significance to the UEFL banner on top of the page. No one just randomly puts in pics of Fred Brocklander and Dave Pallone...two guys who worked during the MLB strike way back in the day. And the clocks? I am racking my brain trying the figure what the time on each clock could stand for.

Those are great pics of Kaiser, Reilly and JJ...but Brocklander? Fred Freakin' Brocklander? At least Pallone, IMHO, proved he belonged and overcame two stigmas (scab and gay) to be in the bigs.

Of course, the bigger issue may be that I can even recognize a photo of Brocklander. Must. Get. A. Life.
