DYK for Carlos Correa (baseball)[edit]

Thank you from the DYK team at English Wikipedia. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 00:12, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Reggie Jackson[edit]

Hi there, I see you reverted my edits without any summary/explanation. After viewing Template:Infobox MLB player, I don't see any issue with adding Jackson's career SOs. He is, after all, no. 1 on career SOs and believe his rate is worthy of being a listed stat in his info box. If there's something else more solid let me know, otherwise if you simply disagree, should probably be hashed out on the article's talk page unless you don't have a strong opinion then we can just include it. Zepppep (talk) 03:44, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

So we appear to have a difference of opinion as what would be considered an "important" stat for a player who did hit a lot of balls, but also whiffed a greater number of times than any player in history, and climbed that list roughly 25 years before the majority of players in the Top 10 (who would be considered contemporaries) when it wasn't considered "en vogue" to whiff whilst trying to hit a dinger. Shall we put it for a vote on the talk page? Zepppep (talk) 03:54, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I found this on your talk page and was wondering if I could remove it. It seems like it's vandalism. 71.146.10.213 (talk) 03:28, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Jim Gilliam[edit]

I made an edit to Jim Gilliam's infobox. Please don't revert it back just to placate your ego. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.54.246.53 (talk) 14:44, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Piss off.--Yankees10 18:11, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
You proved my point with Schoolboy Rowe. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.54.246.53 (talk) 01:14, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Aonie[edit]

Hi Yankees10, I was wondering why you deleted my table for the Jim Abbott article. My table showed his career pitching stats, which is a very popular add-on to professional athlete's pages, and I spent time putting in this information on his page and you just deleted it for no reason. I just want to ask you why you took off information that benefited to the article and also the time I put into putting that up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aonie (talkcontribs) 22:09, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Redundant?[edit]

What was redundant about it? Is it not a career highlight? Zepppep (talk) 06:47, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

The 2,500 strikeouts is already in the career stats section. 2,500 K's isn't even a club anyway.--Yankees10 06:52, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
It's not an article but 2k is. There is no link for the article in the stats section as is. Zepppep (talk) 00:21, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

DYK for Dan Straily[edit]

Orlady (talk) 08:03, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Jon Matlack[edit]

I was wondering why you deleted stuff I posted in Jon Matlack's career "Awards and highlights" in his bio box? I posted stuff cited by baseball-reference.com. All of it was true, and he was the league leader in those statistics. Those statistics are considered to be of some importance. (talk)

Nomination of Jurickson Profar for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Jurickson Profar is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jurickson Profar (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Student7 (talk) 17:22, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

You certainly seem to have your opinions about what should and should not be in infoboxes. I dare ask how come you are not participating in the discussion.?--71.54.246.53 (talk) 23:07, 8 August 2012 (UTC) --J.S.

Ruppert Jones[edit]

I'm rewriting this whole article. If you want to add one of your pointless little edits to placate your ego, I suggest waiting until I'm done.--71.54.241.128 (talk) 09:40, 22 August 2012 (UTC) --J.S.

Andrew Werner[edit]

It's great that you create these articles so quickly, most of the time before I've heard the transaction, but please be a little more careful with your work. You left the name "Brooks Lee Raley" in the lead. Also, it would be helpful if you could remember to create the article talk pages. I just created the talk page for Cody Allen a month after you created the main article. Thanks. – Muboshgu (talk) 18:52, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Collin McHugh[edit]

I just thought you'd want to know that you beat me to creating this article by about an hour. :) Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 22:40, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

GAR assessment[edit]

Roberto Clemente, an article that you may be interested in, has been nominated for a good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the good article reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status will be removed from the article. Zepppep (talk) 23:15, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Barry J. Sanders[edit]

I deprodded this because he's received a lot of coverage over several years, and there's enough editing history to make me think that straight deletion would not be uncontroversial and thus not appropriate under WP:PROD. For my own part, however, given the current state of things I'd probably be OK with a redirect to Barry Sanders#Personal life, where the relevant facts are already stated. That way it could get un-redirected later if appropriate. Best, --Arxiloxos (talk) 20:43, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Stem17[edit]

Excuse me Yankees10 im just wondering why you keep deleting my additions to Robin Yount's page, i just think people should know that he is the Milwaukee Brewers all time leader in hits and home runs, because its possible that Ryan Braun will beat both of them. So until then i think thatt people should know that Yount is the leader in those categories.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Stem17 (talkcontribs) 21:25, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

But lets be honest Yankees10 that not many people really want to stay and read the article, they just want to read the sandbox to see stats, playing history, and awards. So could i please just leave my contributions in the Sandbox? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stem17 (talkcontribs) 21:35, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

August 2012[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Robin Yount. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. Mr. Vernon (talk) 21:42, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Linkable years in info box[edit]

I don't see any opposition at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Baseball#Consecutive years in bio infobox; in fact, no comments at all for 2 weeks. If you feel consensus has changed, I would encourage you to open a new thread on the project page. I have edited the article so that each ASG is linkable in the "Highlights" subsection, per consensus. I can change it so the two bookend years in the info box aren't linkable. As far as listing and linking each ASG the player has, however, I don't see support for it. Zepppep (talk) 00:54, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Again there is no consensus there. A few people agreeing isn't consensus but whatever, too many silly little changes being made to the infobox nowadays anyway.--Yankees10 01:02, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
"No consensus" based on...? At the project page I see: "If it's in the prose, it's fine by me;" "Makes sense to me, but you might want to wait for consensus in Baseball proj" [posted on 16 Aug, as mentioned, no additional comments since then; not a single objection throughout the entire thread); "Yeah makes sense for me as well;" "How do we feel about cutting those things out?" [which was answered, and a question is merely that, not opposition). "A few people agreeing isn't consensus" is based on...? Consensus can be presumed to exist until voiced disagreement becomes evident per Wikipedia:Silence and consensus. If an editor doesn't chime in, their silence is their agreement. Albeit the weakest form of consensus, like I mentioned, there were multiple editors who chimed in with support—zero with opposition. I agree with you there is a lot of discussion about info boxes but it's high time for some firmness regarding the info boxes, so editors have something to point to in the instance of disagreement. Zepppep (talk) 01:14, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Feel free to start a new discussion at WT:BASEBALL.—Bagumba (talk) 02:24, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

BTW, your edit summary here had me ROFL. I think fans of any club would like Trout in the lineup of their team...but one thing's for sure: some have deeper pockets than others! You never know... Zepppep (talk) 03:35, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Maximiliano Hernández[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Maximiliano Hernández has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not a notable person

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Consensus[edit]

I didn't come by to accuse you. Instead, I came by to encourage you that if consensus is being quoted/noted by an editor, the best course for action would be to seek out the claim or to ask around. This would be more desirable than a revert. That was the purpose of my stopping by. If an editor with as good of a standing as you or I is throwing "consensus" around, my first assumption would be to believe it, not doubt it. IMO, WP works best when editors are working in concert, not conflict. Zepppep (talk) 16:14, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Jack Morris[edit]

His current lede directly reads played on four World Championship teams. The Blue Jays section also currently says He won a fourth in 1993, as the Blue Jays repeated as World Champions with a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in six games. Morris did not pitch in the postseason, however.

What do you think should be adjusted, the infobox, or the lede/Blue Jays sections? - Penwhale | dance in the air and follow his steps 14:29, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

The lede/Blue Jays sections, since we generally don't add the championship to the infobox unless they were on the roster.--Yankees10 16:12, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Alfredo Marté[edit]

Why do you think this should have an accent? I checked before doing the requested move: all three of the article's references, and all the first page of Google hits have him as "Marte" with no accent. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 22:16, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Sources don't use the accents. I am going off others with the same last name (Starling Marté, Andy Marté, Damaso Marté, etc.)--Yankees10 22:28, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
I think we should follow WP:COMMONNAME: "Wikipedia... prefers to use the name that is most frequently used to refer to the subject in English-language reliable sources. This includes usage in the sources used as references for the article." I don't care enough to change it back, but if anyone else queries it, that would be my opinion. JohnCD (talk) 22:40, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough.--Yankees10 22:48, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Your move back has been challenged, so time to discuss. I have raised a Requested Move on the article talk page. JohnCD (talk) 23:47, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi Yankees10, I added my voice to RM for these 4 players. Not because of JohnCD's reason (he appears to have misread WP:COMMONNAME, but it is badly written) but because of Spanish sources. This doesn't mean I don't respect your original objection to move which was in the right spirit. Thank you for your edits! In ictu oculi (talk) 03:55, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Section Heading[edit]

Hi Yankees. Hope all has been well. Minor point, but you deleted from a header at Gabe Carimi " All-American and Outland Trophy" w/the edit summary of "don't need it." That's correct. We don't. But on the articles I've brought to GA, I've been told that additions of that sort are felt to improve the article. It's succinct and informative, and consistent with that direction, so my view is its better to restore it. It certainly doesn't seem to be causing such a degree of harm that one need feel impelled to delete it, IMHO, even if one weren't to share the reviewers' view as to such heading amplification.--Epeefleche (talk) 01:16, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Kidd Kidd[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Kidd Kidd requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. STATic message me! 20:46, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

User:MiamiDoilphins3[edit]

Greetings, Yankees. I saw that you reverted several of User:MiamiDolphins3's edits to the infoboxes for NFL players. I left a message for MiamiDolphins3 on his talk page, explaining that it is the consensus of WP:NFL and standard formatting to link to the player's college football team, not the player's university, in the infobox. Hopefully, that will put a stop to that. I would be grateful if you would follow up and revert the similar changes he made to several other NFL player articles: [1]. Thanks.

When you're right, you're right . . . .[edit]

Y10, just saw your comment regarding Suh and the deletion of fancruft about the names of other high school players who were Rivals-rated ahead of him at his position. Complete trivia/cruft. I routinely delete similar cruft anywhere I find it. Anytime you need gentle backing on a similar issue, ping me. I'm there.

BTW, I hope you were satisfied with the outcome of the WP Baseball talk page discussion regarding the order of infobox honors. I thought we had resolved all of those issues last year, but I guess the order of the honors and awards was left open then. I was hoping never to see another talk page argument on that point. Hopefully, those issues have now been resolved for both MLB and the NFL infoboxes. Although, to my recollection, no one has ever raised the issue of the order for NFL infobox honors, I think it's pretty clear from the examples on the template page.

Brian Orakpo[edit]

Hello. I'd like to ask why you decided to remove the mention of the Geico commercials calling Brian Orakpo an "All-Pro linebacker" despite him never being named to an All-Pro team. Pro Bowls are not the same as All-Pro, and an inaccurate commercial is certainly relevant now that the door of having an Endorsements section has been opened. Thanks.

Regardless of whether or not there is a consensus to say that World Series Championships come before All-Star nods in an infobox, there is no consensus for the reversed, either. I'm doing a real edit; I'm not just surfing wikipedia looking for infoboxes I can put in the order I like.

...and you say you DON'T shadow me? --J.S.

Rather than continuously deleting this comment, I'd like it if you answered the question. This is the sort of thing you do to me frequently, and has always gotten on my nerves about you. Frankie Crosetti, Rupert Jones, George Foster. I can give more examples if I thought about it. I really wish you would stop. --J.S.
Are you ever going to acknowledge me? I'm tired of these stupid little edit wars you continuously initiate with me. I like doing what I do. I don't need someone like you following me and annoying me. --J.S.

Articles[edit]

What's wrong with the articles of Justin Tuggle, Luke Tasker and Dave Kruger. I need to know why the PROD on these articles. I don't quite understand it looked fine. I don't see what the problem here 173.78.231.251 (talk) 06:00, 24 February 2013 (UTC) OK what can I do to keep these articles from being deleted. What can I do to make these articles better. What can I do? 173.78.231.251 (talk) 08:36, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Mock draft[edit]

Just out of curiousity, but have you ever considered updating your mock draft, since the 2013 draft is just around the corner and it's still the '09 (even though it's the 2010 draft) draft? ZappaOMati 04:55, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

I actually forgot I even had that. I might update it if I get a chance.--Yankees10 06:39, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Luke Tasker[edit]

Hello, the prod that you placed on Luke Tasker was contested by an IP without comment. If you still believe that the subject is not notable you can bring it to AfD. J04n(talk page) 18:51, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Desmond Bryant[edit]

When the source states, "According to league source", or "very likely to sign" well it is still a rumor and far from anything from team confirmed, I agree MLB and NFL free agency standards are different, but just wait from a team source, not the rumor mills, I already seen a number of false positives so far that is being reported in the media. Secret account 01:51, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

I didn't see that the Cardinals released him. He's still listed as active on MILB.com. Alex (talk) 21:47, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

St. Louis Cardinals minor league players[edit]

So you revert an edit, stating that it is not the place. Since when? That's a lowball explanation. The page is about minor league players; so what makes it inappropriate to include the minor league players of the year? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Elcid.ruderico (talkcontribs) 01:58, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Wily Peralta lead[edit]

Hi Yankees10 - I saw that you edited the lead for Wily Peralta and thought I would ask you about it. I felt like the assertions removed from the lead (one of the fastest fastballs among MLB starters and early control problems) were two of the most important aspects of the subject. The way I understand WP:LEAD to read, that makes them worthy of inclusion in the lead. Though I've been around for a little bit, I still run across new rules and exceptions, so I thought I would get your perspective on it. Thanks! EricEnfermero Howdy! 06:26, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

In my opinion I wouldn't consider the control problems really that important enough for the intro. Looking at his stats, it also looks like that was a little overstated and there was no reference on the article to support the statement anyway. I think I agree about the fastball inclusion if a reference can be found.--Yankees10 16:58, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough. I've begun to beef up the leads of a lot of MLB articles, so I just wanted to make sure that I had a good understanding. I'll see what I can find as far as sources. Thanks! EricEnfermero Howdy! 05:17, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dominic Smith (baseball)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Dominic Smith (baseball) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. - Vivvt (Talk) 16:20, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Infobox Highlights[edit]

Hello. I was curious if there was any standard for infobox highlights. I don't recall one ever being established by the WP:BASEBALL community.

There is a standard. We're trying to keep the infoboxes to just majors records (career home runs, stolen bases, etc).--Yankees10 22:35, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Shutouts[edit]

Hi. I saw that you reverted some of my changes adding this stat to the infobox. I know that shutouts are not part of the triple crown, but I know that it is possible to have numerous stats in the infobox and all the the changes that I saw you revert were among the career leaders for that statistic. Is there a standard that I can't find for what should or should not go in the infobox (please link if you have one), or is this your personal preference? --After Midnight 0001 18:03, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello. A response here would be appreciated. --After Midnight 0001 01:44, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Fair enough, thanks. --After Midnight 0001 03:11, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Back from vacation. In the past it was agreed to that only non-triple crown stats go in the infobox if they are a record. For example Rickey Henderson has stolen bases and runs scored in his infobox--Yankees10 21:58, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

FYI, the article still needs work. Whomever moved it to Victor Pellot also changed Power to Pellot within the article multiple times. When was the change to Victor Pellot made?...William 19:13, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Just looking through the edit history, it doesn't look like there was ever a move before. I think the page was created as Victor Pellot.--Yankees10 19:23, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Category:Athletes from Minnesota[edit]

I'm not going to get into an edit war with you, but the section clearly exists - I've now pulled it up twice (Category:Athletes from Minnesota) so I'm not sure why you are saying that you are seeing it as red. As I said in my revert comment, Nagurski is the only one on the list, but if you take Steinbach off the whole Cat should probably be deleted. Up to you, but I don't see any reason to strike it...

Mike Lowell[edit]

Due to your edits in one place of the article it is 3x champion in another it is 2x champion. He was with Yankees that year. So leave me a comment for my amusement in the article or here.--Ilyaroz (talk) 22:48, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Doesn't matter that he played games with the Yankees that year. Per WP:Baseball conensus a player must have been on the World Series roster.--Yankees10 23:30, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Get off your Fielding Bible Award rampage.[edit]

Point me to any rule, policy or suggestion stating that only "official MLB awards" can be listed in a baseball player's "Career Highlights and Awards" section of their infobox. Then note that this has never been the practice, as a glance at the articles for Jason Heyward, Brendan Ryan, or Curtis Granderson will disclose. Then recall that many "official" awards aren't official at all; the vaunted MVP award has been sponsored and awarded by the BBWAA for decades.

Minor league player articles[edit]

Sorry about that...it's almost 2 AM

The players I'm listing have all logged considerable time at Triple-A and will likely reach the major leagues within the next couple seasons. Alex (talk) 06:35, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Career Triple-A players more often than not reach the major leagues at some point (see Brock Peterson, Tommy Watkins, Matt Macri and J.C. Boscan for examples), if only for a late-season token promotion. I don't see the harm in keeping his entry on that page for the time being, at least. Alex (talk) 16:45, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Realistically, I don't have a ton of minor league entries to add. Each of the players I have on tap spent time in Triple-A in 2013, were among the league leaders in at least one positive, major statistical category and are obviously currently in an organization's system. Though a few are of the geriatric variety like Overbeck, many are still 'prospect age.' I'm not just adding guys willy-nilly, as these are all players who I believe have a realistic shot at reaching the major leagues in the future. Alex (talk) 00:30, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

What harm does it do? Those pages are compendia of information on lesser-known players who do not yet have enough behind them to merit their own articles. No one is negatively affected by these inclusions. If they make the major leagues, then that information is transferred to its own page and all is well and good. If they don't and get released, the information is removed. Nothing is being hurt by having those guys - especially the older ones, who if they don't make it to the major leagues, will likely quit sooner rather than later - covered. I think some of us are trying too hard to maintain some sort of sanctity of those pages, while in my view there is no harm at all in having entries on the minor leaguers. Alex (talk) 02:53, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

I don't mind the idea of having a standard, but it should be enumerated somewhere. Our standards are quite different, obviously. Alex (talk) 06:40, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Matt Adams[edit]

Matt Adams shoved a fan while playing baseball he missed a foul ball. in return the fan flipped him the bird it was notable because it has to do with baseball. here is the source and you can find news reports on what happened. the fan was fresh out of knee surgery but Adams was unaware so he didn't hold it against him. It happened at the Cardinals Reds game on April 3. Its gonna get remembered the fan flipped him the bird and it was a baseball game. If people don't forget in a few weeks put it back. I did not watch the game but I for one thought it was a bad ass moment.

Commas[edit]

Hello.

I see that we don't agree on the commas issue in the baseball player infobox. I'm not going to change the article again, because I think the problem is with the infobox.

First, it has separate parameters for debutyear and debutdate, which is totally unnecessary. The date and year can be passed in a single parameter. See for instance parameter birth_date, which is a single parameter. The same goes for the parameter pair finalyear and finaldate.

Second, because of the separate parameters, the template has to choose a date format for presentation. It currently chooses the mdy format (I assume this is hard-coded), which is sensible, considering that most baseball is played within the US.

But better yet, if there was a single parameter, the date could be passed in the format of choice for the article, instead of "forcing" mdy dates to non-US baseball biographies, such as Cuban, Japanese, British ones, etc. This one-off change for all baseball articles that contain the infobox could be done by a bot (initially assuming the mdy format in the new, single parameter).

What do you think? Wouldn't this be a major improvement?

Regards

HandsomeFella (talk) 16:25, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

(moving your answer here to keep the dialogue in one place)
Any changes would probably be best discussed at infoboxes talk page, but in regards to changing the formats of the date i'd prefer we just left it the US style. Although there are players from Cuba, Japan, etc, Major League Baseball is still a US-based league so I believe the mdy format would be best used. Others may disagree though.--Yankees10 16:43, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Allright, the MLB infobox is obviously US-based, missed that. Still think it serves no purpose to have separate fields, but it would also be pointless now to change it, as it needs no such flexibility.
But the infobox needs to comply with WP:Copyedit. The commas are not optional, at least that's my impression.
HandsomeFella (talk) 19:37, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I honestly wouldn't mind if the commas were added to the infobox. I just think there would need to be a discussion since I know that there are users that are opposed to them.--Yankees10 19:42, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I just had a better idea (I think). See the template talkpage.

Thanks for your infobox award combination work. It is really appreciated, and highly helpful. My only complaint/suggestion is that perhaps, even if it's just a copy-pasted one that you dump on every one such as "stat combo", you use an edit summary. Thanks! Go Phightins! 19:27, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia is a free and open encyclopedia that anyone can edit with the goal of contributing and adding as much information to the world as possible, not eliminating it. Alex (talk) 22:34, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

  • "Consensus" has not delivered a reasonable rationale as to why such players should not be added to those pages. The general theme appears to be "just because" or "we just don't want them." Alex (talk) 22:41, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Hey. How come you don't remove Derek Jeter's Runs listed (or anybody else's on Wiki) and he isn't 1st or 2nd (only 11th) in that category or at some arbitrary level? I know, because he is a YANKEE, and you arbitrarily allow that because it glorifies him and your rooting team. How about a little consistency here, hmmmm?

Your recent editing history at Johnny Damon shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Michael Greiner 00:16, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

The article Kidd Kidd has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not notable. Fails WP:MUSIC.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

bitey[edit]

It is moderately bitey, in my opinion, to revert a new user's obviously good faith contribution (not even using the "revert good faith edits ..." feature of Twinkle) and then leave no message to them welcoming them and/or explaining why.

first round picks dont automatically get articles[edit]

Why do you insist on having stand alone articles on EVERY first round pick? Thats insane.. half of these guys will never make the majors. You wind up with all these stubby articles on high school kids that bomb out in the rookie leagues.. Every player has these sort of pre-draft articles. These guys belong on the team pages not with stand alone articles. Spanneraol (talk) 13:08, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Jurickson Profar Deletion[edit]

I am having trouble finding a link about when an article should be deleted. I keep getting links that link me back to the previous page. I cannot make useful suggestions on his page unless I find a link for it. Without knowing much about the deletion process, I think that the page should stay since he is in the major leagues, and I do not find many major league players without pages. However, if the basis of deletion is solid, it should be deleted. Joey Gallo (talk) 01:38, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Starlin Castro and Chris Coghlan images[edit]

Hi Yankees10, I see that you have reverted my edits for both of these articles. When you read through WP:LAYIM, the style guide clearly indicates images should not be excessive based upon the size of the article & its sections. These additional images do not provide any further value to either article, but instead clutter the article. There is no reason for images to appear in the References section of an article.

While it is not the norm for articles about athletes, an image gallery section could be created for Starlin Castro if you still really want the images to be used on the page. User:cubbie15fan talk, 09 July 2014, 15:21 (UTC)

  • Where is the value for these additional images? Have you read through this WP:LAYIM? Images should not appear in the References/External Links sections of an article. You do not control the content of the articles, even if you created the Starlin Castro page. The style guide provides an objective outline of how images should appear in an article.
  • You have not provided any objective reasoning as to why the images should remain as they are, other than you disagree with me. Subjective feelings do not merit reverting an edit. User:cubbie15fan talk, 09 July 2014, 17:26 (UTC)

Why do you not believe WP:LAYIM is violated by the "Castro on the road in St.Louis, 2014" image on the left side of the article?

Please Assume Good Faith, I am just trying to be direct in this conversation. I did not mean to come off as attacking you. User:cubbie15fan talk 09 July 2014, 18:13 (UTC)

Thanks for explaining why. I agree with your point, and made the changes. User:cubbie15fan talk 09 July 2014, 18:44 (UTC)

Willie Montanez[edit]

That opening paragraph was just unbelievable for Wikipedia. Unreferenced, NPOV and living biography violations, and maybe most of all- The paragraph had been there for 6 years!

I got around fixing baseball articles and putting in references. That's how I found it. I've been doing Atlanta Braves from 1977. An Sci-Fi ebook that I'm writing has a MLB first baseman 20 years from now called 'Guillermo Montanez'. No relation, I just used the name. Its not an uncommon one.

Another Guillermo Montanez who plays first. You say that's hard to believe. But this is Sci-Fi. My story also has-

1 Women golfers playing Muirfield. 2 The Chicago Cubs going to the World Series in 2025 (and losing) 3 A spacecraft crashing in Kansas. 4 A woman knuckleball pitcher making it to the majors.

Die hard baseball fans might say the Cubs going to the WS is the hardest to believe. Cheers!...William 01:14, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

You said: Did you not read Wikipedia:WikiProject Baseball/Player style advice? You can see what we usually add to infoboxes and catching no-hitters isn't one.--Yankees10 22:48, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

An MLB record it's not a career highlight?. It's not just catching no-hitters, the four caught by Varitek are an MLB record, not just catching no-hitters. That's a career highlight! an MLB record! Nolan Ryan's page: career highlights: MLB RECORDS: 5,714 strikeouts, 7 career no-hitters. I don't see career strikeouts in Wikipedia:WikiProject Baseball/Player style advice as one of the items "we usually add to infoboxes", so according to that should we erase that 5,714 strikeouts as a carrer highlight?. Nonsense.--Mijcofr (talk) 14:54, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Danny Coale[edit]

Coale never made the Indianapolis Colts team, so he never was a Colts player, that is why I removed the category. In order to be a Colts player, he needs to be on the regular season roster or even the injured reserve list. Tecmo (talk) 03:15, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

It is a fact that to be a Colts player you need to make the team, is not enough signing a contract. Check his NFL.com profile, you won't see Colts anywhere. This applies to all leagues.Tecmo (talk) 03:24, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for a mess, but I tried to update statistics for the above article and they suddenly moved from their original spot. Can you fix it, please?

Many thanks in advance.--Mishae (talk) 16:08, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Fixed.--Yankees10 17:05, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Also, should I use ESPN or ESPN.com when it comes to refs because as you can see they are a bit different? The reason is is that ESPN is probably will be publisher while ESPN.com is a website and either parameters can be used but I am confused which one is preferred in such cases?--Mishae (talk) 17:39, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Vernon Hargreaves (III)[edit]

Hey, Y10, got a questions for you: do reliable sources normally refer to Florida football player Vernon Hargreaves as "Vernon Hargreaves, III"? If not, does WP:COMMONNAME not apply? I have not spent a lot of time with this article, because I normally don't put a lot of effort into them until I'm confident of the subject player's notability.

There is no rule against removing PRODs if one has a viable reason to do so. My reason is viable. There is no consensus in PRODs and Wikipedia is intended to be consensus driven. Alex (talk) 04:51, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry you feel that way. Many of the players getting PRODded (and AfDed) en masse do actually pass WP:GNG. Removing these PRODs allows more eyes to review the article and its case for deletion. This allows more people to find potential sources and to improve these articles so they do pass GNG. The individual prodding all these articles isn't even listing them on the Baseball deletion sorting page as a courtesy to other members. Rather, it seems as if the individual is attempting to keep the PRODs as secretive as possible so others cannot review them, allowing the articles to get deleted an wither away. That's not how Wikipedia is supposed to function. Let's add knowledge, not delete it. I am not acting in a way to anger people, people are allowing themselves to get angered. I do not follow the groupthink of the vocal cabal of baseball editors and its triumvirate of leaders (muyaspa). That groupthink does more harm than good. Alex (talk) 05:07, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Football players who also ran track[edit]

Thank you for this: [9]. The separate headers for one and two-sentence "track and field" subsections under "early years" or "college career" are completely unnecessary and drive me crazy. I routinely delete section headers and paragraph breaks for one-sentence paragraphs. The same IP is doing this for all NFL football players who ran track in high school or college, and it usually does not merit more than a one-sentence mention -- except for the rare player who was also an NCAA champion or Olympian. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 21:18, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Yeah it's really annoying. All this track info is just totally unnecessary. A mention of running track in school is fine and mentioning any competition wins, but the "personal bests" and whatnot is just too much.--Yankees10 21:31, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
More annoying yet: many of these additions are unsourced, and by all rights, should be deleted. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 21:38, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Duplicate articles[edit]

When you found the more recently created (but better) Todd Davis (American football) and the older Todd Davis (linebacker) and redirected the old title to the newer one, I think it would have been more correct to use the WP:FMERGE merge process to merge the newer article into the existing one, so that the article history is preserved as having been started on 14 Nov by Victorsmesq (and then perhaps rename the article to the newer, better, title). Or even do the formal merge in the other direction, as the procedure includes making links to the previous version so the history is preserved. As it stands, you've made it look as if the article was first added to the encyclopedia yesterday, 24 Nov. It might matter, sometime, to someone, to have the record correct. Thanks.

Shawn Oakman[edit]

The article didn't give a shred of evidence for importance, since it didn't even mention anything other than being a college football player. Most D1 college football players will never be notable, and many of the exceptions will become notable for reasons completely unrelated to football; we thus can't take "he plays college football" as a claim of importance. This article didn't give any evidence of notability, either; it just had routine news stories, which being primary sources, don't contribute to making someone notable. Nyttend (talk) 00:54, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

I already told you that this article completely lacked secondary sources, that it had absolutely nothing suggesting that he passes the notability standards. I'm willing to undelete if you can provide secondary sources, but please remember what WP:BASIC says, Primary sources may be used to support content in an article, but they do not contribute toward proving the notability of a subject. Nyttend (talk) 01:03, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Please listen to what I said. Secondary sources are required, and the article had a bunch of primary sources but nothing secondary. Administrators routinely delete articles that demonstrate neither importance nor notability. Nyttend (talk) 01:15, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Analysis of all sources that you gave me, although slightly out of order:
  1. [12] is based on an interview with the guy, and it's reporting what he's up to.
  2. [13] likewise is based on an interview and here to report the news.
  3. [14] talks about events that are just happening, the guy's rising prominence in the scouts' eyes.
  4. [15] is an opinion column.
  5. [16] is pretty much all based on an interview.
  6. [17] is pretty much all based on an interview.
  7. [18] is pretty much all based on an interview
  8. [19] is pretty much all based on an interview
  9. [20] is pretty much all based on an interview
Interviews are primary sources, and when the interviewer's talking about his impressions of the interview and interviewee, the resulting article is likewise a primary source. A news story is a primary source for the event in question, since the reporting of the news is part of the historic context surrounding the event: it's part of the same event, same context as the one in which its subject is involved, so it's not secondary. Secondary sources are those that build on primary sources, e.g. a later source analysing the interviews, written by someone who uses the interviews (and potentially other relevant documents) and who's detached from the scene, or a later source who goes through PSU-produced documents, Baylor-produced documents, news reports, etc. to compile an overview of the situation and analyse the original documents. Obviously it's possible to demonstrate notability through ways other than raw sources; an NFL player with this kind of sourcing wouldn't warrant deletion, since the news stories are quite enough to establish that he would pass WP:ATHLETE, and a US state legislator needs only the news stories to establish the fact that he's qualified for WP:POLITICIAN. The difference here is that most college football players aren't even important, that this some news coverage is routine for college football players, and that his actions don't make him inherently notable, unlike the NFL players and the US state legislators. Nyttend (talk) 01:40, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
My last message was left before I saw your last message; that's why I ignored it. Almost no current college football players are notable simply through WP:GNG; they gain notability by doing notable things (WP:ANYBIO), e.g. becoming MVPs for major events or getting awards listed at {{College football award navbox}}. Nyttend (talk) 01:58, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Of course someone qualifies for an article if he has enough coverage to pass GNG. Let me repeat for the final time: this guy has no evidence of secondary source coverage, no coverage that's completely independent of him. Please familiarise yourself with the concepts of primary sources and secondary sources, or please begin providing me with some secondary sources, before continuing to assert that he has any secondary-source coverage.

Your input is requested[edit]

I have initiated a requested move of the college football season pages from 1974-77, and I would like your opinion of such a move on Talk:1973 college football season and Talk:1977 college football season.-Thanks-UCO2009bluejay (talk) 05:31, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Need your reactions, suggestions and ideas[edit]

Y10, because you've been a long-time proponent of uniform formatting and emphasis of core data for athlete infoboxes, I would like to get your reaction to some ideas for revamping Infobox NFL player and reducing its unwieldy length in practice. You're the first editor I've asked, and I would like to get your reactions and suggestions before I invite anyone else to participate. Here's the link: [22].

  • @Dirtlawyer1: Great. I'll leave a response on the sandbox talk page when I get a chance.--Yankees10 17:55, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks for your comments, Y10. What other WP:NFL regulars should we be seeking input at the early stages. I'll ping Eagles247, who was instrumental in the evolution of the current version of the template, but most of the formerly influential WP:NFL leaders seem to have have faded in the last couple of the years. I know who the half dozen influential WP:CFB editors are, but WP:NFL seems to be in the grip of the newbies as of late . . . . Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 21:01, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Infobox NFL player: current parameters[edit]

Y10, I saw that you're adding hidden versions of the infobox template to college player bios in preparation for the 2015 NFL Draft: [24]. I note that you are still using deprecated versions of one or more field/parameter names, specifically:

  • "currentpositionplain" and "currentposition" should no longer be used, and should be replaced with "position" in all instances;
  • "currentnumber" should no longer be used, and should be replaced with "number" in all instances.

Having consolidated these redundant parameters, we would not like to perpetuate the deprecated parameter/field names by incorporating them into the new 2015 players bios. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:24, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

@Dirtlawyer1: Ok thanks for letting me know.--Yankees10 17:38, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, sir. You're a scholar and gentleman. FYI, more discussion coming in the next 60 days regarding ways to shorten/simplify Infobox NFL player -- trying to get Infobox college football player squared away first, then move on to Infobox NFL player. If you have any comments, complaints, suggestions, etc., regarding the NFL infobox, please let me know. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:49, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Interested in creating some college basketball player articles?[edit]

Hi Yankees10 – I know that you create a lot of athlete articles so I wanted to see if you were interested in creating some college basketball player articles. In the runup to awards season in March, there are many likely All-Americans, Conference Players of the Year and NBA draft picks who do not have articles yet meet WP:GNG. I have a starter list on my user page that includes finalists for the Wooden and Naismith awards as well as some others. It certainly isn't a complete list. I wanted to see if you'd be willing to help create some so that when awards are named or draft picks made these guys are not redlinks. I usually create a lot of these but would love some help. Understand if you have other stuff you'd rather work on, but thought I'd ask. Rikster2 (talk) 15:38, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

@Rikster2: Sure i'll check them out. I don't create basketball players as much as baseball and football but i'll definitely take a look.--Yankees10 19:17, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

I think we might have a differing view of what sources are. For instance in Sidney DeWayne, Marisol Malaret, and Luke Tarsitano. An external link to IMDB is simply not an RS. I could be completley wrong on this but that seems to be what I understand JBH (talk) 00:03, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Bobby Cox[edit]

Hey, I noticed that you when you reverted my edit, you said that Bobby Cox's ejections are not a highlight. They may not necessarily be a highlight, but are a major league record, and major league records are normally listed in the infobox. Also, if ejections are not highlights to you, then why are they in John McGraw's infobox, ever thought about that? God, I just don't get you sometimes.--CelticsFan76 19:08, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Rollbacker[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. – Gilliam (talk) 05:55, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi great job reverting the vandalism. However, please don't use the Rollback feature to revert good-faith edits like this one. Rollback should be used only in the case of obvious vandalism. In the case of good-faith edits, you should manually revert or use the Undo feature, and explain in the edit summary why you are reverting. Thanks.– Gilliam (talk) 05:55, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Minnie Minoso[edit]

Minnie was born in 1922 any source that claims different is horse shit. He said he was born in 1922 with his own mouth in-front of about 30 witnesses at a baseball card show in Chicago. Dont change the revisions back to 1925 as his birthday is in 1922. If you continue i will change it back to his real birthday every time.

Hey[edit]

No one could have been born in Cleveland in 1996 unless they were born at home, they're were no hospitals in Cleveland then or now, I should know, it's my hometown. User:Wikiman103 talk 11:37 2 March 2015 (UTC)
