1969 Minnesota Twins season page, relief pitchers section.[edit]

Hello and good day. Go to above mentioned page, relief pitchers section. Charles Walters. His redirect does not go to the proper wiki page, goes to a director and soccer player. Fix so it goes to baseball player's wiki page. Thank you and have a good day.2601:581:8000:21B0:304C:CD3D:3958:6A95 (talk) 18:53, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

MLB tiebreakers[edit]

Staxringold, Wizardman, Kuyabribri and I got MLB tiebreakers recognized as a Good Topic back in 2013. Today's baseball has determined there are two new entries. We're gonna have to get them promoted to Good Article status to maintain the Good Topic. I forget how quickly that's expected to be done. Help is appreciated. – Muboshgu (talk) 23:29, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Well i thik the games need to be played before that much can be done to write about them. Spanneraol (talk) 23:47, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
We can write some background, and the games are tomorrow so soon enough there will be game content to include. – Muboshgu (talk) 23:58, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Tal's Hill remerger proposal[edit]

The article for Tal's Hill, a former feature of Minute Maid Park (the hill was removed in 2016), was merged into the Minute Maid Park article in 2007, however a user recreated the article last year. He currently opposes remerger. The discussion is here. (talk) 14:37, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Division standings templates[edit]

User:GoodDay has made a series of edits to division standings templates to change them to display, for example, NL West instead of National League West in the header. I feel in the interest of clarity for a broader audience, it would better to keep the full division name. What does everyone think? isaacl (talk) 01:57, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

I agree with you. Spanneraol (talk) 02:00, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
I made them that way, to match with all the other post-1969 MLB season articles which displayed an abbreviation of the division names. GoodDay (talk) 02:04, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
I was about to say I do realize that (in spite of the instructions in the template), the abbreviated name has been used in some season templates. I didn't remember exactly which ones or how extensively. Also I had not anticipated either that someone would convert older standings templates to use the {{MLB standings}} template, as I didn't see much advantage in doing so. Nonetheless, my suggestion would be to make them all use the full name. isaacl (talk) 02:10, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
I also made the changes I did, as it's easier to change a few out of place, rather then over 40. GoodDay (talk) 02:12, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
I'd say to use the abbreviation. Presumably, AL or NL would have already been introduced in the any transcluding articles' prose already, so there's no need to repeat the verbose form in the template again.—Bagumba (talk) 08:49, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I did think about this. Currently as I recall they are used in the team season articles and the MLB season article, within their own section. As typical best practice is to use the full term in the first use of a section, and given how the templates can be included in any article with any context, I lean towards having the full name. isaacl (talk) 20:18, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
