Incredibly Belated PBA Rookie Biometrics Observations

This is an astoundingly belated post but am writing here anyway the Biometrics results of the recent PBA rookie draftees. Which is another way of saying I found the Excel file they sent me when I was cleaning up old files on my PC and thought three things: 1. ‘why the hell didn’t I post that?‘ 2.’this would do good SEO’ and 3.’why is there no date of birth?

Anyway here it is.

A Note About PBA Notes

One of the most popular features on BallEx happens to be PBA Notes, which is basically a cut and paste affair from a mailing list I’m subscribed to run by the PBA office. Unlike what some idiot implicated a few months ago, I do not claim to author these. Instead I upload them using WordPress’ handy Blog By Email feature which allows me to literally cut and paste it to an email address which forwards it to this blog and it gets published automatically. That way it gets published quickly, I do not have to log in, etc., and PBA fans who read this blog instantly get their PBA fix via scores and updates.

Unfortunately when I do that, WordPress prints the author of the post as myself, which I did not care to correct since, obviously, I’m just reprinting scores and updates from the PBA – stuff that no one cares to ‘plagiarize’ because that’s all public information the PBA wants to disseminate anyway. And besides, what would I gain from claiming ownership of PBA scores? I’m sure you’d agree being accused of stealing them is just brazen stupidity right there.

So anyway, I just wanted to talk about this because I wanted to point out two things.

Barakos no longer an underdog

red-bull_barakos.gifThe Red Bull Barakos (now known as Barako Energy Coffee Mix) made a lot of believers with their inspired plays last conference. Losing stalwarts Enrico Villanueva and Larry Fonacier from last season would have made a devastating impact on a franchise, but the Barakos are no ordinary team. They’re made of sterner stuff.

Overcoming tremendous odds, the Barakos finished third in the conference, falling only one game short of a championship appearance. Cyrus Baguio took over the team and played like a man possessed. He was the team’s do-it-all guy, leading the team in scoring (17.72 ppg), assists (4.12 apg) and steals (1.2 spg), often wowing the viewing public with his vast array of acrobatic shots and daredevil plays.
