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.
