[edit] Request

Please add links as appropriate for team names, player names, dates, etc. It takes a few extra seconds per page only. - --Mischa 21:56, 28 October 2006 (EDT)

I can't stand that red link... --Alexsautographs 20:06, 18 Mar 2006 (EST)

[edit] Image names

Alex,

Thanks for the additions. They look great. One thing that might be helpful is to use the player names for the images. For example, instead of Adam1.jpg, try using AdamLaroche.jpg. That will make it easier to search for images for others who may need to use them somewhere. Thanks again for the contributions.--Admin 00:57, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

[edit] Stub fill-ins

Thanks for the nice comments. I still have several stubs of yours, jgperro and others to go through. It seems like there's never enough time to get to all the articles out there. After a year and a half, I still have some of my initial "I'd like to do that page" ideas hanging around. It's been great, though, and I'll try to keep up the pace. - --Mischa 07:48, 2 January 2007 (EST)


Thanks for the great new pages. One comment... try to add category tags to any new pages you create. Keep up the great work! - Chisoxfan 17:23, 13 January 2007 (EST)

[edit] One note

When copying the articles you post on wikipedia, please remove material that had already been covered in the demographics section (full name, height, weight, batting/throwing hand, birthdate and place, etc.) No need for redundancy. - --Mischa 20:32, 31 January 2007 (EST)

[edit] Image Tags (February 2007)

Greetings Alexsautographs.

Thank you for uploading following images to the BR Bullpen. However, these images are missing source and/or copyright information as required by the image use policy. For ease of identification, image tags are often used to indicate sourcing, license status, or both. If the required information for images is not added within 7 days it will be deleted.

This is a semi-automated message from MichaelEng (talk) at 14:09, 18 February 2007 (EST).

Instead of anonymous "according to one source", could you identify the source? - --Mischa 19:08, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

When uploading images, try to use cards that illustrate the person in question, like TerryFrancona.JPG, not like OmarQuintanilla.JPG. Thanx. --Jeff 22:04, 11 August 2007 (EDT)

Professional leagues and summer college leagues are fine for team pages. Amateur and semi-pro are probably out of the scope of the Bullpen at this point. --Jeff 22:29, 21 August 2007 (EDT)

I would second Jeff. - --Mischa 08:31, 22 August 2007 (EDT)

[edit] Jose Hernandez birthplace

Many reputable sites give Vega Alta as Hernandez's birthplace, most notably MLB.com. I trust MLB.com on the birthplace. - --Mischa 20:00, 30 December 2007 (EST)

[edit] Soler

What was your source for Soler? A lot of the info appears wrong - his birthplace was wrong, his 1998 batting average. - --Mischa 11:36, 21 January 2008 (EST)

I assume your comment about the "reliable" baseballcube was sarcasm. - --Mischa 12:22, 21 January 2008 (EST)

[edit] Belliard

Nice job with the obscure record additions. The reason I reverted your edit on Rafael Belliard is that his obscure record was already mentioned on his page. - --Mischa 20:05, 17 March 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Urban

Urban's minor league records are easy to track down, so I removed the bit about how little is known of them. - --Mischa 21:16, 22 March 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Lemon

You need to make a new page at BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/Jim Lemon. - --Mischa 17:24, 20 July 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Harry Berrios

Thanks a lot for the Harry Berrios photo. Kinston eagle 21:16, 28 July 2008 (EDT)


Please comment on BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/Beau Mills - --Mischa 20:21, 4 December 2008 (EST)

Can you scan in a Mike Piazza pic? - --Mischa 15:07, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

[edit] Ramon Ramirez

Please see Talk:Ramon Ramirez (Panama). - --Mischa 14:30, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

[edit] Paperofrecord

I used paperofrecord extensively to access all the TSNs. When google bought it out, TSN was no longer available like most of the rest of the content. As I understand it, the TSNs are available on Worldvitalrecords.com with the same search as paperofrecord, but it is a pay site. --Jeff 23:26, 17 October 2009 (EDT)

Please comment on BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/Lou Brissie - --Mischa 12:20, 4 December 2009 (EST)Insert non-formatted text here

[edit] Final Game

How are you determining who is retired? Some of these guys like Hee-seop Choi or Tony Blanco are still active overseas. - --Mischa 20:00, 14 February 2010 (EST)

[edit] David Allen

Where did you find a Negro Leaguer named David Allen in 1887? The Biographical Encyclopedia of the Negro Baseball Leagues lists a William Allen active in the Negro Leagues that year, but not a David. Has new research shown that William is in fact David? The Biographical Encyclopedia is a bit dated now. Let me know. - --Mischa 12:59, 22 February 2010 (EST)

I didn't even realize BR Minors now included Negro Leaguers. Cool! - --Mischa 15:33, 22 February 2010 (EST)

When making new pages with accent marks, make sure the page doesn't already exist without it, as was the case for Ramon Aguero. - --Mischa 16:56, 2 June 2010 (EDT)

Thanks for getting the start on Masanori Sugiura. That's one page I've pushed off tackling for ages due to the amount of detail involved. - --Mischa 14:32, 23 August 2010 (EDT)

[edit] Clemente, Relaford etc.

Thanks, Alex. My pleasure, really. You may well have noticed that, outside of the past couple of days, I've barely been around the Bullpen for the past 10 months, my research taking me to areas far removed from baseball. How long I'll be back I can't say, but right now, I'm supplementing the RC bibliography with links from Google Books (i.e. full text from Baseball Digest, Life, Ebony, Jet etc.). BTW, as a big-time Met fan, you might be interested in checking out the Desi Relaford page. (He, among 2001's low-rent heroes - i.e. Shinjo, McEwing, even the injured Agbayani - impressed me the most). I had posted a bunch of 'Further Reading' links for him last year and, inspired by your comment & avowed allegiance, I've added a bunch more just now. Also, re both DR & RC, I recommend a visit it to the May 17 page of the Bullpen's calendar. (Actually, adding items to the calendar comprised the bulk of my Bullpen activity in 2010). For Clemente, there's 1959 (historic Wrigley moonshot), 1964 (quintessential Clemente throwing clinic) and 1971 (clutch clout off Mike Marshall). As for Desi, 2001 gave us the game that started with Trachsel's infamous meltdown and ended with Relaford's memorable mop-up performance. - --David 15:48, 24 April 2011 (EDT)

[edit] Thank you!

Alex, Thank you for all of the contributions. We have a small token of appreciation, but I need an address to send it to. If you are willing, please send me your mailing address to sf@sports-reference.com.

thanks, Admin 09:11, 5 December 2011 (EST)


Please comment on BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/Ed Morris (morried01) - --Mischa (talk) 10:46, 8 August 2013 (EDT)

Your sources for some of the league leaderboards are off; ex. you list Gravino as being 2nd in the 1953 Northern League in games when he was 6th (see here) or tied for third in triples when he tied for fourth (here) - --Mischa (talk) 16:43, 13 November 2013 (EST)

Do you sort by clicking on the column headers or the scroll-down menu? The former doesn't always yield accurate results. The latter should; if not, you should let Sean F. know. - --Mischa (talk) 16:47, 13 November 2013 (EST)


Please comment on BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/Sachio Kinugasa - --Mischa (talk) 12:16, 15 January 2014 (EST)

Thanks for keeping up to date on all the deaths in the baseball world! - --Mischa (talk) 16:55, 3 March 2014 (EST)

If it means anything, you did the Travis Shaw page the same way I would have. --Jeff (talk) 22:29, 9 March 2014 (EDT)

Please comment on BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/2008 Caribbean Series - --Mischa (talk) 12:20, 9 May 2014 (EDT)

There's some questions about flickr or other images on the 2008 CS discussion page; you're one of our image experts. Can you help with that? - --Mischa (talk) 12:38, 14 May 2014 (EDT)

A couple things:

1) Thanks for taking on the slack with the "What's New" section and suggesting featured articles since I've cut back. 2) When I was more active, I used to update the calendar section with the players you've added, both for birthdates and deathdates. Ex. if you add Zeke DeVoss, edit July 17 and add him to the birth list to keep the list complete.

Thanks again.

- --Mischa (talk) 09:19, 6 August 2014 (EDT)

I assume since you proposed BR Bullpen:Featured Article Candidates/Owen Ozanich, your vote is Support? If so, we could make it the new FA - --Mischa (talk) 12:38, 22 September 2014 (EDT)
