Proposed removal of redundant publisher information[edit]

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, 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). Please raise any questions here or on my talk page. Colonies Chris (talk) 21:38, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Early naming[edit]

The new team was nicknamed the "Quakers"... in 1884, the team changed its name to the "Philadelphias"

Um, no and no. The team, like most at the time, had no name at all; "Quakers," "Philadelphias" and its reduction "Phillies" were all monickers used by sportswiters, but never by the team until 1933 Solicitr (talk) 01:12, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
