Why Señor Smoke?[edit]

Why the nickname? Surely it has an origin. These things are generally expalined.SidiLemine 14:35, 17 September 2007 (UTC)---

Comments

  • Just a general feeling, the lead seems quite large for this article, have you compared it with the requirements of WP:LEAD?
I trimmed it down a bit. Let me know if it works now.
  • "1978-1987" -> "1978–87"
Yes check.svg Done
  • Consider linking things like Scout (sport) for the non-expert reader.
Yes check.svg Done but let me know if there are other terms that need clarification.
  • "a 62-36 win-loss record" -> "a 62–36 win–loss record".
Yes check.svg Done
  • What is a "save" and what is "earned run average"?
Clarified.
  • "Aurelio Alejandro López Rios was born on" you only need to use his surname.
Yes check.svg Done
  • "In his youth, he enjoyed both soccer and baseball. López chose to pursue" -> "In his youth, López enjoyed both soccer and baseball but chose to pursue the latter..."
Yes check.svg Done
  • "he went 19–3" again, this is a little jargon, what does it mean to a non-expert like me?
Yes check.svg Done
  • " mid- to late 1970s" -> " mid- to late-1970s"
Yes check.svg Done
  • "in 1977-1978" ->"in 1977–78"
Yes check.svg Done
  • Check all other "records" use an en-dash, not a hyphen.
Yes check.svg Done as far as I can tell.
  • "López ran into shoulder problems" ran into is a little tabloid, perhaps "suffered from".
Yes check.svg Done
  • What is AAA?
Linked.
  • "López was driving a car..." ->" He was driving...
Yes check.svg Done
  • The Free Lance–Star uses an en-dash, not a hyphen.
Yes check.svg Done
  • Make sure accessdates have the same format for internal consistency.
Yes check.svg Done
  • Non-English references should use the lang=Spanish (for instance) parameter.
Yes check.svg Done
  • In the categories, it says he was a Springfield Redbirds player and an Evansville Triplets player. Neither teams appear to be mentioned in the article, is it incomplete?
I made a mental goof. The reference to Louisville should have been Springfield. It was even correct in the reference, but St. Louis's AAA affiliate was in Louisville when I was a kid and somehow that must have been on my mind. Evansville is mentioned (briefly, since it's also a minor league team) in the second paragraph under the MLB career section.

Placing this on hold until the above is resolved, mainly minor apart from the last point. The Rambling Man (talk) 10:29, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the time you put into this review! I think I have addressed these issues, but let me know if I need to do anything else. EricEnfermero Howdy! 12:08, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick reply. A couple of other things:
