A short one this week as I haven't had time to keep up. Also, I don't have pics for any of these guys. Trauty? MichaelEng? Does anyone have a Brinkley or Takagi pic? They played at top levels for a good length of time. - --Mischa 20:02, 16 October 2006 (EDT)

"...that Joe Rovner was the first 30-30 player in Eastern League history?" - why does his page not mention this? typo? --MichaelEng 11:48, 18 October 2006 (EDT)

Typo. Meant Jeromy Burnitz. - --Mischa 12:00, 18 October 2006 (EDT)

Need pics again. Kinugasa, Seguignol and Nady are the most likely ones I guess. - --Mischa 20:54, 21 October 2006 (EDT)

Some more ones that need pictures. Jack Wilson and Birkbeck were definitely on baseball cards. Durkac and Ozeki might have been and Ozaki probably has been in some public domain photo. - --Mischa 18:04, 29 November 2006 (EST)

Quick change as there have been lots of good articles. Again, no pics though unless someone adds one. - --Mischa 19:36, 3 December 2006 (EST)

First time in a while we needed pics. Miller? Ferris? Fajardo? Strong? Criger? Lots of possibilities here. - --Mischa 12:44, 22 March 2007 (EDT)

Thanks, Phillippe. I missed the Ferris pic. Mischa 13:09, 22 March 2007 (EDT)

Time for pics again. - --Mischa 11:27, 13 May 2007 (EDT)

Pictures please. Choi or Mays would be easy to find I think. - --Mischa 09:46, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

On a run of pictureless pages. Good choices would be King, Callahan or Lloyd. - --Mischa 12:26, 31 May 2007 (EDT)

Any thoughts about leaving postings up here longer? There seems to be a ton of empty space on the main page in this area. -Chisoxfan 20:49, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

When there's a picture, it matches up fairly well size-wise to the "Today in Baseball" section. - --Mischa 13:11, 1 July 2007 (EDT)

OK, I had a go at updating this. Let me know what you think. -Chisoxfan 16:28, 1 July 2007 (EDT)

One suggestion - I try to only add links to fairly complete new articles. Ryan Rowland-Smith's page doesn't tell us much more than is in the "Did You Know" question. Clicking on the link should bring up more information. - --Mischa 08:27, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

I spruced up the Rowland-Smith page so it's complete-ish. I try to keep a list of pages for the What's New and am unsure if I should add them onto yours or save the current batch for the next set even if they're no longer "what's new". I've got the 1988 Baseball World Cup, Wei Wang, Pedro Luis Lazo, Free agent compensation draft, Joey Votto and Ricky Stone marked as good pages to add and was planning on maybe the 2003 World Series, 1997 Phillies and Lou Boudreau once edited and (in Boudreau's case) expanded. Added on to your What's New, that's way too big a crop. If I wait a bit, it might be big enough so that the pages looks more even, though. - --Mischa 20:55, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

If you want, feel free to keep a couple of mine that you feel are the best and get rid of a few, then add some of yours. I just know you were away for a bit, so I figured this section needed some updating and figured I'd try something new. -Chisoxfan 00:17, 3 July 2007 (EDT)

I appreciate it! I'll be off quite a bit this fall probably (we're expecting our first child) and some of the general housekeeping I've been doing will need to be picked up by others. If you don't see me updating this section for a couple weeks, feel free to step in. - --Mischa 09:55, 3 July 2007 (EDT)

Time for more pics - Polonia? Hernandez? Lee? - --Mischa 19:22, 22 July 2007 (EDT)

Danke. - --Mischa 19:40, 22 July 2007 (EDT)

Time for another picture request. - --Mischa 09:57, 29 July 2007 (EDT)

We need images. Lots of modern players here - Patterson, Jurrjens, Ust - plus a long-time actor and a regular MLBer from an era when baseball cards were common. - --Mischa 21:24, 20 August 2007 (EDT)

Pics again. - --Mischa 20:19, 28 August 2007 (EDT)

We need pictures. I imagine photos of Lin or Pestano are available on some free photo site but don't know where to look. - --Mischa 14:42, 3 December 2007 (EST)

Flickr has a photo of Lin's baseball card here - can we use that? - --Mischa 15:02, 3 December 2007 (EST)

You have a resolution issue there --Jeff 21:12, 3 December 2007 (EST)

Just a quick question/suggestion about the "Did You Know" - since most of the trivia is presented in a what/who format, would it be a good idea to change it from "did you know" to "do you know"? Since it's being presented in more of in a quiz format, it reads better as "do you know" (do you know what...) rather than "did you know" (did you know what...). Alex 00:41, 3 March 2010 (EST)

Need pictures - first time in 2 years we've made this request here, a positive! Tatis? Partlow? Cole? Ishikawa? - --Mischa 20:39, 8 December 2009 (EST)

Here are some of Villalona on flickr - http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=all&q=Angel+Villalona&m=text - if someone wants to upload them. - --Mischa 12:25, 9 December 2009 (EST)

I personally prefer "did you know" because it's more traditional for trivia in newspapers, etc. What do others think? - --Mischa 09:05, 3 March 2010 (EST)

About including the Dodgers history article, I'm torn - it's been expanded a lot but it looks a little bad for us to be including such a major article almost five years into our run here. What do others think? - --Mischa 20:57, 23 March 2010 (EDT)

The timing is irrelevant. "Did you know" is a way not only to introduce some interesting fact, but a way to get someone engaged in a bullpen page. IMHO --Jeff 22:32, 23 March 2010 (EDT)

Nice variety this round - guys from Australia, Venezuela, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, the majors and Japan - --Mischa 16:43, 26 February 2013 (EST)

First time in a few years that we don't have a good picture (the Kinsella one is not primarily of him). Does anyone have a public domain photo of Smith, Pett or anyone else listed? - --Mischa (talk) 16:47, 31 December 2013 (EST)

[edit] Suggestions for inclusions

  • ...how former minor leaguer Garrett Broshuis has remained active in baseball law?
  • Roy Howell held the record as the youngest player in Texas Rangers history to hit a grand slam for almost 40 years
  • ...what tragedy cast its shadow over the 2005 Taiwan Series?
