There should be a page on explaining hold in baseball in the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:405:4100:6859:5879:4526:636B:3B1F (talk) 23:27, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

It exists. Hold (baseball). Spanneraol (talk) 23:52, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Discussion at NSPORTS[edit]

Hello all. In an effort to finally resolve the never-ending and annoying GNG v SSG issue, I've proposed a revision of the NSPORTS introduction. You are all invited to take part in the discussion. Thank you. Jack | talk page 06:20, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Infobox: Division titles & tie-breakers[edit]

Just curious, for the team infoboxes that have won League pennants pre-1969, we link to tie-breaker games or tie-breaker series (when necessary), instead of the team's regular season. Should we do the same for Division titles of teams that have won those via tie-breaker games? Example: At the New York Yankees infobox. Should we link to 1978 American League East tie-breaker game, instead of 1978 New York Yankees season? Note that these tie-breakers are regular season games.

Coming late to the party[edit]

One of the things that really bothers me this time of year is when editors that have never visited a teams page all year show up and start doing incomplete game logs, no links to box scores, etc. for Divisional games. They completely ignore and disregard the efforts of season-long editors. Am I alone in my anger toward these young whippersnappers invading obviously well-taken care of Team articles? I know. What can you say...anyone can edit. But it sure is rude! ―Buster7  04:03, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Yes, i can relate to that as well.. just let them do their thing and then fix it later. Spanneraol (talk) 13:05, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
I wanna yell, "Stay off my lawn" but I doubt they will understand! ―Buster7  18:02, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
They're just trying to help. Careful not to fall into an WP:OWN trap. oknazevad (talk) 18:05, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
I would wait for the postseason excitement to ebb, and then make Good Faith edits citing previous article consensus.Orsoni (talk) 14:41, 9 October 2017 (UTC)


I was looking at 2017 Los Angeles Dodgers season and I wonder if the Transactions sections should include roster moves made for each round of the playoffs.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 20:17, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

I've really been treating those transaction logs as referring to the regular season. They dont really do "transactions" as such during the post-season.. it's more about just setting the roster for each round. The guys that are left off the active roster arent really optioned to the minors. Anything important that happens, like Seager being removed from the NLCS roster, can be mentioned in the appropriate post-season section. Spanneraol (talk) 22:19, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
I think we should document all post season roster changes as transactions in the season articles.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 02:41, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
They aren't transactions though. I agree with Spanneraol.--TorsodogTalk 04:24, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
