My Biggest Pet Peeve

Posted by Sean Forman on February 15, 2010

You can file this under whining (on my part), with a capital W, but if you use one of our sites extensively for an article or blog post, please put a link to the site or the pages used. I've recently seen some articles where an author does 100% of their research on and then for whatever reason links all of the player names to another site, and when they say in the article they used B-R it isn't even a link. Come on! Take a little, give a little.

    I just started a blog ... I used B-R stats ... and I remembered to cite! Yeah!

    I just stumbled across something interesting, and I thought I might mention it here, if that's okay: Larry Yount (, Robin Yount's brother, is credited with a single big league appearance ... and he was not on the field for a single pitch! ( Very peculiar. I wonder, how many other players have had similar careers?

    I would say none. None more players.
