Due to a need to replace a faulty power supply the sites will be down for hopefully just a few minutes tomorrow afternoon as the power supply is being replace. The work is scheduled to occur sometime between 1 and 3 pm ET and should affect only our CFB, CBB and Olympics sites and this blog. Should a longer outage be necessary or any additional sites be affected, we will post any updates to our twitter accounts.

The pitching table is getting pretty wide on the team and player pages, so we've added a new little twist to our player pages (soon to be on team and league pages) where if you hold your mouse over the save column for a pitcher a little box pops up and it will show you the blown saves, save opps, save situations and holds for that pitcher. See the screenshot below.
This data is already on the "More Stats" page linked just above the pitcher's primary stats, but not everyone makes it onto those pages.

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.

We've always had free agency pages at the end of the year, but now I've gone back and added pages back to 1976. If you go to a league page, the graphic below shows where you can find it.

Got a request for this and it was an easy addition to make, so we now have wins above average in both the pitching and batting season finders.

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.

Note that we only compute blown saves for games in which we have play-by-play which is mostly complete back to 1954, but only 100% back to 1973. See our Coverage Page for all of the gaps in the data.
Save percentage is Saves / (Blown Saves + Saves).

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.

2014 Major League Baseball Rookie Players - Baseball-Reference.com.
As you know year of debut and the last year of rookie status are two different things. We have attempted to track who was a rookie in what season using the current standards and have produced a seasonal page showing those players' career stats. This data is also included in the play index, so you can search based on rookie status there as well. If you find any errors or omissions let us know.
Also on player pages we will now show the season in which we believe the player lost his rookie status.
