I've added a tiny little link to the very end of the page nav bars that sends you to a random B-R page (the squiggly Greek letter). Mousing over it will also show 100 random pages.

Rickey Henderson 1985 Batting Gamelogs - Baseball-Reference.com.

For the play-by-play era (roughly 1954 on), we've added information on who drove the player in the most times in a particular season. This appears just above the gamelog list. For instance, in 1985, Rickey Henderson was driven in 56 times by Don Mattingly, 31 times by Dave Winfield and 24 times by himself.

Baseball Team Executives on Team/Year Pages

Posted by sean on March 4, 2014

If you look at a pre-2013 team season (back to about 1950) we now list GM, Farm Directors and Scouting Directors as applicable. This appears just under the team name in the top box, near where the manager can be found.

Neil Paine Joining FiveThirtyEight

Posted by sean on December 19, 2013

As Nate Silver tweeted out earlier today, Neil Paine is leaving Sports Reference early next month to join Nate's new FiveThirtyEight.com. I know I speak for everyone here at SR when I say I'm feeling a mix of sadness that on a daily basis we won't get to tap Neil's encyclopedic knowledge of European NBA players, his knowledge of pretty much every sabermetric study ever done, his patience dealing with every kind of user complaint, and his wit, pluck, and genuine enthusiasm for his work. But also happiness for Neil that his writing and thinking is getting the platform it justly deserves. I know someday we'll be bragging that we knew Neil Paine before he was a bigshot. :)

I'll be anticipating his articles and I suggest you search them out as well when the site launches in early 2014.
