Comments on: Play Index Updates This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: Sean Forman Wed, 03 Nov 2010 17:09:56 +0000 Chris, I've reworked the sort to be both faster and also to be stable, so the tables will retain their previously sorted order when sorting on a new column. I just needed to find a refererence and it wasn't hard to do. Thank you for pointing this out.

OK. That works. Must've missed that last night.

As long as I'm here, another change/glithc I've noticed. It has nothing to do with the PI, but as long as I'm in this thread (and as near as I can tell the glitch came w/ the recent site updates).

Say I'm in the homer log for Brad Radke (to name a not-so-random example). I click on the "notes" column of his homer log & the 8 leadoff HRs he allowed appear near the top. So far, so good.

Except now - and unlike in previous times - the leadoff homers appear in completely random order with no rhyme or reason. That didn't used to be the case. It used to sort like an Excel sort: it would move around only what you asked it to, and the rest would be in the old order.

Which is to say, if you sorted by WPA and then the notes column, the leadoff HRs would appear in order of WPA. If did leadoff sort first, they'd appear in order by date. It was very convenient and could make things a little more interesting when looking at the results. I looked at this a week or so ago and noted that Radke had three straight starts in which he allowed a leadoff HR. (As near as I can tell, that's the only time this has ever happened). Now I go to Radke's HR Log, sort by column, & the 8 leadoffs are up top alright, but beyond then it's totally senseless.

This is not a big thing obviously, but it was better the old way.

Something is wrong on play index when I search by Career, 1871-present, Non-Pitchers, Minimum 1000 PA sorted by PA. Prior to the upgrade, I used to get around 3400 players,now it shows 2680?

By: Johnny Twisto Thu, 28 Oct 2010 03:23:40 +0000 Yeah, PI is all kinds of screwed up if you want to do more than 1 search. Going back messes it up.

By: Chris J. Thu, 28 Oct 2010 01:40:12 +0000 Sean,

Problem I notice:

Say I do a search in PI (any search - Let's make one up: say most Ks in a season for a reliever for the Royals). It's done & I notice a tweak - let's only look at guys who threw under 50 IP - I hit the back button and . .. I can't get back to the old search screen. And if/when I can, it's a blank search screen. If I want to do a variation on a theme, I have to redo all the standards I put in the first place. Previously, I'd go back and it was the same search requirements I'd asked for a little earlier.

By: Raphy Wed, 27 Oct 2010 00:41:01 +0000 Dave- Now you can search with more than one option within the same category. Triples with 1 or 2 outs.
Even better -All the Inside the Park HR of 2010 in one search:

By: Dave Tue, 26 Oct 2010 22:38:40 +0000 question:
How is the new event finder different than the previous one?
I thought you could always break down sections (triples at home with 2 out in the 7th inning or later...)
