From BR Bullpen

5/28/17: Well, I dropped the Trojans connection with the Giants. At least here. However, considering what I've come across over the years with various major league sports teams, I've decided that I'll keep the Trojans/Giants connection in my own personal files. Only for this reason: There are some websites, I think the Baseball Library website was one of them, where the wording made it sound as though Giants' owner John Day bought the Trojans' franchise and moved the team to New York. If by some minute chance some time down the road this actually true, then I'll put the Trojans connection back on the Giants' page. But for now, the Trojans and Giants are now officially 2 separate teams.

They are officially two separate teams, but the future Giants took over all of Troy's star players, so there is a clear sporting connection between the two teams even if there is no legal one. --Philippe (talk) 13:32, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

6/12/17: Of course you never know. One day someone may discover an official legal connection between the Trojans and the Giants.

7/8/17: As you can see I've added more team histories. It has also come to my attention, that the Baseball Chronology website is no longer up and running. I am going through the various team histories trying to find which teams I used the website as a source and trying to find new sources for them. Still working on the other team's histories as well. Still have yet to figure out how to create a "box" for the Cincinnati Red Stockings like there are for the 30 MLB teams. I wonder if next year George Steinbrenner will get into the HoF now that Bud Selig is going in.

Q: Would you guys have a problem if I removed all of that side information (Owners, Managers, Radio, TV, Ballpark etc.) on the New York Yankees season pages? I've noticed that some info like Radio and TV should not be there until the 1930s. I was thinking of the info to the section above the part about the history, comments etc. It even make it easier to include GM and Presidents as well.


From last year: Thanks, will keep it in mind. I'm working on a bigger page for the Washington Nationals (not the Expos/Nationals page). I noticed that the individual pages for the Nationals of the AA, UA, and NL are just stubs. I think by combining them into one page works better like with the Philadelphia Athletics etc.

Here are my plans/goals for the summer of 2017 (This looks to be expanded into next year, but can't say for certain)

1) A new Washington Nationals page for the other Nationals teams. (move to Wash. Nat's; write history of Wash. baseball)

2) Organize/fix/edit MLB pages. (work esp. on those that don't have one)

3) League histories (divide league standings into divisions etc.)

Long term goals: Work on Yankee Stadium (I) not Yankee Stadium (II). This one I see taking place possibly in '18. Finishing the Cleveland Indians history page. New York Yankees history
