Jose de Paula[edit]

With this edit, you put text in front of a source that didn't support the addition. Please make sure to put text after, preferably with its own proper source. – Muboshgu (talk) 18:43, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Technically ...[edit]

Being DFA'd does not mean your tenure with the team has ended. You are off the 40 man roster. But one of the DFA options is that you are -- within 10 days -- returned to the roster. It is after your DFA option shows you not to be in the organization that it is proper to indicate in the time-span (year x to year y) something other than present at the end. Best. --Epeefleche (talk) 23:25, 2 July 2015 (UTC)


When a player on the minor league page is traded, you can move the section (manually) to the new page. There's no reason to keep the person on the page for an organization they're not in anymore. You just delete it from the old page, put it on the new page, and change the redirect. Also, when a fully notable player is traded, you can remove the {{current sports transaction}} tag, and their old uniform number. – Muboshgu (talk) 00:06, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks yeah I didn't know how to move it or I would have done it my mistake I appreciate the help! Muboshgu (talk) Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 04:42, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

You just did this again with Yeison Asencio. The blurb should've been moved to its own page. I did it. – Muboshgu (talk) 20:11, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

DFA'd players[edit]

When updating the DFA'd guys can you try to keep the Major League Baseball (MLB) link somewhere in the intro? An example would be like what I did with Chris Heisey.--Yankees10 23:54, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Yup no problem thanks Yankees10 Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 23:58, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Guys its kinda silly to change the wording when a player is DFAd... you really should wait till they either get outrighted or released. It's kindof a trivial change that doesnt actually mean anything. Spanneraol (talk) 00:03, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

You're still removing it for some reason.--Yankees10 00:50, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

You still insist on removing it for some reason. Why can you not just leave it there and just add "organization of Major League Baseball (MLB)"?--Yankees10 21:33, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

From now on I am going to put the Major League Baseball (MLB) in the top part of the article but not right after it just doesn't look right considering everyone on a minor league deal just has organization and the MLB is somewhere in the top is that fair Yankees10? Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 21:36, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Ok, give an example because i'm kind of confused.--Yankees10 21:39, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 check out Onelki Garcia. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 21:41, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Yeah that works.--Yankees10 21:44, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Or it could be like Vic Black's "He made his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates"--Yankees10 21:46, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 yeah man I saw you do that so I put that in there for people who didn't have anything after like Danny Muno. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 21:47, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

I just changed the wording a little bit and unklinked the Mets to avoid overlinking.--Yankees10 21:53, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Only a few months later and yet again you remove Major League Baseball (MLB). I'm glad we even bothered with this conversation before.--Yankees10 22:35, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 The way you are using it doesn't make sense Simon Castro isn't playing for the Colorado Rockies he is in the organization the Major League Baseball (MLB) doesn't seem necessary you are making a huge deal over nothing.

It's the fact of the matter that it takes little effort to incorporate it into the intro and yet you refuse to for some reason and keep removing it. Why can't you do what we discussed above?--Yankees10 01:25, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 Because I forgot we even had that conversation. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 01:29, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

How can you forget? I've bothered you numerous times about this.--Yankees10 01:31, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 I understand what you mean I feel I am becoming a better editor not making changes till made official and I feel I am becoming a more respected editor like you. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 01:41, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 I usually don't read the messages anyone sends me on here because usually it is complaining I hop in conversations that I deem as important. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 01:34, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Well you should read all of them. That "complaining" is usually someone trying to help you became a better editor.--Yankees10 01:38, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Have they come out and said yet?[edit]

Have they come out and said yet? Allstartrick14 (talk) 17:50, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

They have not yet they haven't even announced who is going to go to Miami Allstartrick14 (talk) Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 17:51, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

It's official[edit]

Its official Allstartrick14 (talk) 18:03, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

No not yet

NFL infoboxes[edit]

You're not using the * in NFL infoboxes right. It only goes next to the team if the player didn't appear in a game. Brian Tyms and Frank Alexander appeared in games with the teams they were just released from.--Yankees10 00:27, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

NFL updates[edit]

Thanks for updating the NFL cuts. There's gonna be a bunch over the next few days and your edits are going to be very helpful. Like I said last year though don't forget to add the "*Offseason and/or practice squad member only" when you add the *. Thanks.--Yankees10 19:31, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Actually it looks like all you need to do now is add |pastteamsnote = yes under the teams.--Yankees10 19:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Also don't forget to remove the "Active" from the roster status in the infobox and the roster navbox at the bottom.--Yankees10 20:03, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Hidden text message re non-free-image photos[edit]

Ryan, please do not remove the following hidden text message from transclusions of Template:Infobox NFL player: <!-- Only free-content images are allowed for depicting living people -- see [[WP:NONFREE]]. --> This hidden text message is supposed to be included in every instance of an infobox for a still-living current or former player where the image field is not already linked to a free-image photograph. This is intended to reduce the uploading and use of non-free-image photos -- i.e., copyright violations -- in our bio articles for NFL players. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 06:32, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Final cuts[edit]

Yup thats final cuts for you. So many transactions. Your edits are very appreciated.--Yankees10 06:15, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Make sure you don't put the * if the player has appeared in games with that team.--Yankees10 21:39, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Zurlon Tipton appeared in games.--Yankees10 00:38, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
As did Cyril Richardson. Why do I have to keep asking you not to add the * if the player appeared in games with that team? I'm very appreciative of all the work you do here but it's getting annoying that I have to keep coming here to remind you not to do this.--Yankees10 21:45, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox NFL player[edit]

Hey, KR -- FYI, this infobox does not require anyone to add "px" to the "image_size" parameter in order to alter the default size infobox photos. In fact, most infoboxes no longer require the added "px" coding for photo-sizing, but the thumb template still does. In the case of the NFL player box, most of us have been deleting the "px" coding along with the other deprecated template parameters that are no longer in use. I thought you should know.

Jeremy McBryde[edit]

What was the purpose of requesting for this to be un-deleted? There's zero notability with him right now.--Yankees10 22:42, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Yankees10 I just don't see a purpose for removing articles of someone on here if they play pro ball I feel they should have a page. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 22:56, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Not every minor league player is notable enough to have an article unless they pass WP:GNG.--Yankees10 23:13, 2 December 2015 (UTC)


You keep forgetting to remove the roster navbox and update the team list in the intro. Spanneraol (talk) 03:41, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

NPB season in infoboxes[edit]

Please note that the NPB season has not started yet, and should not be added to infoboxes for new players in 2016 yet. Per their website, the first day of the season is March 25. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 17:04, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Former players[edit]

Don't forget to remove the "stat year" in the infobox for former players.--Yankees10 22:27, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Or you know you could just ignore this.--Yankees10 22:09, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Sorry Yankees10 I completely forgot that you sent this I will remember from now on. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 22:19, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks.--Yankees10 22:24, 17 February 2016 (UTC)


We don't put MLB next to every MLB team so there's no reason to have NPB next to every NPB team. There's no consistency or logic. These infoboxes aren't just for MLB players.--Yankees10 19:57, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

I feel that it is more info that is helpful and I don't see a problem with doing it Yankees10. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 19:59, 6 March 2016 (UTC)


Your adding numbers for players in minor league camp and not NRIs. 2605:6000:54C2:1F00:9139:2B:98F2:D7FC (talk) 23:33, 7 March 2016 (UTC) is wrong and you know it. He is in minor league camp. 2605:6000:54C2:1F00:9139:2B:98F2:D7FC (talk) 23:41, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

talk how would I know that it's wrong seems credible to me. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 23:42, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Stop Vandalising the Bobby Massie page.[edit]

Why are you reverting my edit to add Bobby Massie to the Bears. The move is official. PRESSX825 (talk) 23:12, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

NFL free agents[edit]

I know it's bad. Nobody listens or understands what an official signing is. I could ask the admin that protected Osweilers page to protect some. This is one of the few times I wish I was one so that I could easily do this.--Yankees10 00:40, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Don't forget to remove to remove the team navbox for free agents.--Yankees10 02:51, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

MLB minor league pages[edit]

If a player is no longer a member of that organization (like this), please de-merge the content and re-merge it where it belongs, if applicable (like this and this. – Muboshgu (talk) 21:56, 7 April 2016 (UTC)


Don't forget to remove the roster navbox when a player is DFA'd.--Yankees10 01:33, 7 May 2016 (UTC)


Hey Kingryan227, just a heads up that the KBO is the Korea Baseball Organization, and not the Korean Baseball Organization. "Korean" would make more sense, but they don't use an "n". Trut-h-urts man (TC) 16:03, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Hey thanks Trut-h-urts man I didn't know I was just going of what was more logical. Kingryan227 (DecreesActs) 19:00, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

A Request[edit]

A request[edit]

When entering a players data like you did for Brandon Boggs. Please check to make sure that the player is retired. You didn't do that and he is retired. Going forward please do this. Aggiefan47 (talk) 16:26, 04 June 2016 (UTC)

I havent entered any recent information on Johnson and i dont know if he is or isnt retired. Spanneraol (talk) 04:24, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

You didn't update the free agents intros with the teams they played. Just looking at Todd Cunningham's for an example you didn't didn't add the Angels to the "He previously played for the" part. You did this with pretty much ever player. It would be nice if went back and finished the update.--Yankees10 00:44, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

And you're still not doing this part.--Yankees10 22:18, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

What the hell does "Free agent after 2016 season". That's not even a complete sentence.--Yankees10 22:04, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Dustin Molleken[edit]

You're not new. You've been here a while. So why are you adding unsourced information all over the place? You have to source your edits when you make them, or they can and should be removed (especially in BLP cases). Not being able to find a reliable source isn't an excuse for adding info without a source (I've looked, can't find anything at the moment for Molleken, Kensing, and Cuevas). That's why I'm reverting this again. Please stop adding unsourced content. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 21:02, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

Tyler Naquin change of number?[edit]

If a player is changing number in the off-season, you really need to provide some reliable sources to support the claim. —C.Fred (talk) 18:50, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Indians' roster numbers[edit]

Please don't change the roster numbers for Gonzalez, Morimando, Clevinger, Naquin, and Merritt again. The numbers are wrong; those are their spring training numbers from last season. The correct numbers can be found at Indians Press As a general rule, MLB players, with rare exceptions, are NOT allowed to have their numbers changed once they have made their MLB debuts, unless they were assigned numbers in the 60s or 70s.

MLB change of uniform number rule[edit]

"Any big leaguer who wants to change uniform numbers without switching teams better give eight months’ notice unless he’s willing to buy warehouses full of his overstocked jerseys. . . . Players must tell the commissioner’s office by July 31 of the preceding year if they want a new jersey. That is, unless ‘the player (or someone on his behalf) purchases the existing finished goods inventory of apparel containing the player’s jersey number.’ As in, every replica jersey, jacket, T-shirt, mug and anything else with a number that’s anywhere in stock." (see here: (I assume, for example, that Encarnación paid this cost for Gomes to take his no. 10 for the 2017 season.)

The only exception I have found is in the case of a rookie who barely played in the majors the previous season who is then given a new number in spring training when a veteran non-roster invitee who wants his number is added to the roster. For example, Morimando (who only has 2 days of service time) could be given a new number, but Naquin, Gonzalez, Merritt, and Clevinger have enough service time to fit the description listed above.
