Cliff Lee Trade and Halladay Trade not related. Cliff Lee and Roy Halladay were traded in separate transactions that had nothing to do with each other. In no way did "two cy young winners" change hands in related transactions. Period. I think this should be changed as it sounds like Philadelphia Phillies apologists explaining away the worst trade in baseball history. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:36, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
In the game log I feel that the teams that the Phillies are playing against should link to the 2010 season for each team rather than the generic team page that states the entire history of each franchise. Sadly, I do not know how to do this myself.WesUGAdawg (talk) 01:22, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
A consensus has generally been established that team names should link to teams and not to team seasons, per WP:EGG. — KV5 • Talk • 01:26, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
There does not seem to be a consensus, not even amongst the teams in this division, as the Braves, Marlins, and Nationals DO link to the current season whereas the Mets and Phillies do not. As far as the links go, if you are interested in the 2010 Phillies season, chances are you are interested in the current season of other teams in the division rather than say for instance the entire checkered history of the Nationals. Perhaps, if you highlight the specific text in that policy that states the guideline, I would be more inclined to agree. However, after skimming the policy I see nothing that illustrates the point.

I'm talking about previous discussions, not about what other articles do. In WP:EGG, it states "Keep piped links as intuitive as possible. Per the Wikipedia:Principle of least astonishment, make sure that the reader knows what to expect when clicking on a link". The reader does not know to expect going to a team season article when clicking on a team name. WP:LINK#Piped links says "Think about what the reader will believe the link is about. Example: When you use a link such as [[Archery at the 2008 Summer Olympics|Archery]] (which displays as Archery), the reader will expect this link to go to a general article on archery, rather than Archery at the 2008 Summer Olympics." Thus, clicking on that team's name should go to that team's article. — KV5 • Talk • 00:23, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
It seems to me that if you have arrived at the 2010 Phillies season then you are most likely looking for information on this particular year in baseball. Otherwise, you would most likely be on the regular Phillies page. Hence, it would seem that when you click on an opponent, especially in the game log, that the intuitive link would be to find out what was going on with the opposing team for that year. That's just my two cents. Thanks for all the great work that you do keeping this page fresh and updated. WesUGAdawg (talk) 12:08, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
File:RaulIbanez.jpg Nominated for speedy Deletion
Speedy deletions at commons tend to take longer than they do on Wikipedia, so there is no rush to respond. If you feel the deletion can be contested then please do so (commons:COM:SPEEDY has further information). Otherwise consider finding a replacement image before deletion occurs.
Proposed removal of redundant publisher information
A number of citations in this article unnecessarily include the publisher for periodicals and websites that have their own Wikipedia article. This information has no value to anyone wanting to check or track down references. For example, publisher=Washington Post Company for references to The Washington Post, or publisher=MLB Advanced Media for references to MLB.com, only make the article longer - significantly longer when repeated many times - without adding anything useful. Therefore I plan to upgrade the article's citations to remove all such redundant publisher info, bringing them into line with the recommended use of the cite template (see Template:Citation#Publisher). I'll also remove redundant 'location' parameters (e.g. work=New York Times|location=New York), as suggested by the template's usage guidelines. Please raise any questions here or on my talk page.
