Playoff Seedings Now Up!

Posted by Mike on November 18, 2012

We now have current NFL playoff seedings (after some extensive tinkering and constant referencing of the NFL's playoff tiebreaking procedures) which we will keep up-to-date from week to week, including the reason one team may be chosen above another with the same record. Look for it to be updated after each game day and keep an eye on your team's chances!

Compare Two Players’ Stats Side-by-Side

Posted by Neil on November 15, 2012

Here's a neat Baseball-Reference trick... To compare any two players, just enter a URL in the following form:

http://www.baseball-reference.com/compare.cgi?top=/players/t/troutmi01.shtml&bottom=/players/c/cabremi01.shtml

Modify that form to include any two players you want, keeping in mind that the "top=" part refers to the player in the upper frame (enter a player's ID from the root directory; i.e. Cabrera's in the "/players/c/" directory) and "&bottom=" refers to the bottom frame. This should work for any combination of two players, as long as you enter the IDs and directories correctly.

Search Our Stats Using the Play Index

Posted by Neil on November 8, 2012

We're a week and a half into the 2013 season, and it's time for a reminder to check out the Basketball-Reference Play Index. In case you don't already know about the PI, it's a set of research tools that allow you to create customizable queries on our database, save the results, and share them with others. With the PI, you can:

  • Use the Player Season Finder to search through all NBA, ABA, & BAA players' regular season and playoff statistics for performances that match your criteria.
  • Use the Player Game Finder to search through NBA players' regular season and playoff game logs (since 1985-86) for games matching your criteria.
  • Use the Head-to-Head Finder to search for games in which two selected players played against each other.
  • Search for player and team consecutive-game streaks that match your criteria using the Streak Finders.
  • Search for team performances that meet your criteria with the Team Season Finder and Team Game Finder.
  • Use the Draft Finder to search through every NBA/BAA draft for picks that match your criteria.
  • Use the Player Comparison Finder to compare the stats of up to four players through (or in) a given season.

Also, take a look at the Play Index Plus for even more data-searching goodness. The PI+ lets you sift through the play-by-play data of every game since 2001, making it possible to look for specific events, lineup data, and shooting stats (including clutch shots and shot breakdowns by distance).

Best of all, these features are 100% free to use! So go ahead, give them a try, and you'll wonder how you ever got along without them.

Field and Stadium Types Added to Team Game Finder

Posted by Mike on November 8, 2012

We've just added field type (grass or artificial) and stadium type (domed, open, or retractable roof) to the team game finder tool, which you can use to learn that Oakland is 1-7 in road games on turf in the past 5 years or the Packers are 18-12 in domes since 2002. In addition, we are trying to hunt down data indicating whether a retractable roof stadium was open or closed on gameday -- if you have any source of that data, let us know in the comments.
