Searching for players can be a chore sometimes. You want Alex Rodriguez's page, so you search for Rodriguez and get like 2,000 results, which we need to do, so you can find every player. But 99% of the time you are probably looking for A-Rod and not the other players.
Adding the string "the" to the start of a search will automatically send you to the most popular player page matching that search. Also, you don't have to enter the entire player name just entering the first few characters will work as well. We've always has the "the" feature, but I just tweaked it so that it now matches only on first and last names and no longer on things like given names or nicknames. So search "the L" now sends you to Cliff Lee instead of Barry Lamar Bonds. Enjoy.
