Here's a reminder for everyone to check out the B-R Bullpen Wiki, the collaborative baseball encyclopedia that anyone can edit. We have 65,285 articles -- and counting -- thanks to users just like you, and we hope to add many more as we collect and organize as much baseball knowledge as possible. To get you started, here are some links on the project:
Or you could just go to a Random Page.
Give it a try, explore a little, and maybe even take a shot at editing a page. There's a lot of baseball knowledge out there just waiting to be added to these pages!

Here's a cool feature you may not have seen, since we added them before the season:
Those links take you to pages with a master table of every team's most frequent starters at each position and a master table of every team's most common pitchers (arranged into staffs). It's a good way to see who the regular players are for the entire league in one glance, as well as to compare the Wins Above Replacement each team's been getting from each position. Check it out!

At the most basic level, these reports let you see a (sortable) list of everyone who hit or pitched in baseball yesterday, but they also come with the capacity to find player stats over the past N days (where N is customizable), to find players at various minor-league levels, and to find players in specific organizations. We list a number of sample searches on the form, so you can get an idea of what the Daily Stats tool can give you.
So feel free to play around with it, give it a try, and let us know if you found a bug or have a suggestion.

If you're a Baseball-Reference addict, chances are you've seen the link for our Game Day Previews on the front page of the site. But if not: each morning, we generate preview pages for the day's MLB games.
These pages contain detailed info on the probable starting pitchers (including a list of their most recent starts), recent results for each team, the last 10 head-to-head matchups between the two teams, and active rosters for each team (including platoon splits and head-to-head results against the each member of the opponent's pitching staff/lineup). Be sure to check them out if you're watching the game at the ballpark or at home.
And to keep up with the latest action, you can subscribe to the RSS feed for our previews, or you can sign up to have them delivered to you automatically via e-mail. And if you don't want to sort through the whole league when trying to find your favorite team, you can bookmark the link to your favorite team's page, which gets updated daily for each upcoming game.
Finally, if you want to see who was on a roster at an earlier point in the season, you can call up archived copies of previews for every game this year by using the "Find Date" drop-down menus at the top of the previews portal.
