We do have salaries on the 2009 roster pages, but do not have historical contract info, so we can't present the same grid as we do for 2010. We will have that going forward, but 2010 is the first year we are going to have.

http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/LAD/2010.shtml

There is no problem as there is a Tab saying "Payroll, Roster & Uniforms"

But if I want to see 2009 (or Prior), for example, the Tab only says "Roster & Uniforms"
http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/LAD/2009.shtml

Clicking any other years "Roster & Uniforms Tab" doesn't get you that years Payroll data.

So I must start at 2010 and then click my way back 1 year at a time.
Any way to get the Tab to say "Payroll, Roster & Uniforms"?? and then get the Team Payroll data?

Any chance you can put the latter on the player pages, maybe right next to salary in the Player Value table?

Or how can I get to it throught the front page? Thanks!

We had been trying to find a list of all the clients he used to represent. Now it's easy, using an advanced Google search restricted to B-R for his name. Sean, have you considered making actual agent pages so we can look them up directly that way?

BTW Gilbert's name has been in the news lately as a lead investor for a group that tried to purchase the Texas Rangers and lately I think he's been mentioned in conjunction with the Dodgers.

The best baseball website ever just got even better. You are an absolutely indispensable tool for those of us in the business. If it was up to me, I'd have you pass "Go" and head directly into Cooperstown. Thank you for your tireless work.
