Comments on: Team Schedule Sparklines on Team Pages http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/10659 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: Doug http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/10659/comment-page-1#comment-105791 Thu, 14 Apr 2011 05:48:25 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/?p=10659#comment-105791 Great feature. A few little quibbles or suggestions.

Tough to see the spacing between months - maybe an ultra-thin vertical hairline would be a better way to separate months.

Like DavidRF @ 3, having GB in the mouse-over info would be a nice addition.

Like Zach @ 17, I think the Schedule and Results page would be a better and more natural place to put this.

The colours are kind of ugly and it's distracting when, for example, I'm looking for Eric Hinske's line in with the 2004 Blue Jays (in a giant page of black text) and there's a massive blotch of green and red lines above where my eyes want to look. It'd be a lot better it was tucked away somewhere (the schedule and results page would be perfect) or if there was a way to disable it.

Basically, when I go to a team's yearly page, I'm not really interested in their season's results on a game-by-game basis, I'm looking to compare players. Because of that, I find that this is a rare distracting feature on a site that's been remarkably clean and well-designed since it launched.

Sorry Sean.

But I was only in town for the originally scheduled day, so I missed the game.

One quibble though--the choice of red and green leaves millions of color-blind guys--like yours truly--somewhat out in the cold. I'd wager most of your users are men, as are almost all color-blind individuals,
