Super Joe Charboneau


SUPER JOE
Pirates rookie outfielder “Super Joe” Joe Charboneau has been hot, as of late. He has five hits in his last three games. Through 49 games this season he’s hitting .225 with 4 home runs and only committed one error. Though Joe has been solid in the outfield so far, it’s his off the field antics that are drawing attention for the Pittsburgh fans.
A number of tall tales are coming out that make the rookie sound more like Paul Bunyan or Johnny Appleseed than a real human.  
Here are just a sampling of the stories: 
- He fought in bareknuckle boxing matches as a teenager to earn money. 
- He fixed a broken nose with a pair of pliers. 
- After a doctor eventually fixed all the crushed cartilage, he could drink beer through his nose. 
- He cut a tattoo out with a razor. 
- He was stabbed with a pen while playing exhibition games in Mexico. 
- He would play "The Incredible Hulk," a game where he held a giant rock on his chest and had another person break rocks against it, until both stones were dust. 
- He stitched a cut with fishing line. 
- He won a bet by eating six lit cigarettes. 
- He opened beers with his forearms ... and his eye socket. 
According to Charboneau, most of the stories are true. Which ones? Well, that would ruin the magic. "A lot of them are true, but as the season progresses and we go from city to city and play different teams, some stories are coming out that I've never heard of. Like football, everybody is piling on."

"If you truly want to make this more realistic, ballpark selections in favorite teams (for each park) should come into play. "

That's exactly what happens here. Boost stadiums increase HR, Disadvantage stadiums increase extra base hits. Good call.
