Split Finder Allows you to Excludes Incomplete Results when PBP is Missing

Posted by sean on May 5, 2014

This is a subtle one, but as you may know play-by-play and ergo certain split data like platoon info and count data is not complete back to 1914. We have 100% of play-by-play back to 1973 and the 98%+ back to 1954. Details Here.

So we are now allowing you to exclude the split seasons from the Play Index Split Finder where incomplete totals may occur, so a pre 1973 platoon split, or a pre 1988 by count split.

See the location of this checkbox below.

DNP/Inactive Records For Player Gamelogs

Posted by David Corby on May 1, 2014

Just a note that we've added DNP and Inactive records to our player gamelogs, beginning with the 2013-14 season.

If the player was active but didn't appear in the game, or didn't dress for the game, that's indicated with a 'Did Not Play' record. In cases when the player was active and suspended, the record will be 'Player Suspended'.

In all cases when the player is on the inactive list the record will be 'Inactive'.

Please let us know if you have any questions or catch any mistakes in the gamelogs.

Posted by David Corby on April 25, 2014

Just a note that we added overtimes as a query option for our Team Streak Finder.





New Orleans has the longest current win streak in regular-season overtime games with 6; they also have the longest streak of the last 10 years when they won 13 in a row between April 2, 2006 and February 6, 2008.

Opening Day Service Time (s.2010) & Contract Status on Player Pages –

Posted by sean on April 24, 2014

A user made the suggestion that since we had service time data why don't we add it to the player pages, so we did. It's now in the salary tables at the bottom of the player pages. This data is their service time at the start of the season and is mostly complete since 2010 opening day.

GM's may wish to double-check the numbers before entering contract negotiations. Also, if you haven't seen this area of the player page before note that you can do era adjustments to salaries and we list player contract status here.

Moving FIP to the Right and a new Feature

Posted by sean on April 22, 2014

I had wanted to put FIP next to ERA since there is often a lot of reason to want to compare them, but it's causing too much confusion for folks wanting to use ERA, so we are moving it rightward near WHIP. One thing if I have done is that if you hold your mouse over an ERA or FIP value we'll show you a little tooltip with the row's ERA, FIP and Difference all in the same output as shown below. We'll mark the difference Green when the FIP is less than ERA and red otherwise.

This will roll out sitewide over the next hour or two.
