    Player Discussion Forum

    Maybe its been brought up before, though I never saw it, would anyone think its a good idea to have either a subforum, or just a whole new forum for player discussions. Ive noticed that player discussion forums are scattered all through out the site. There are some in 19th century, history of the game, hall of fame, current events. I think it would be a neat idea to collect them all and put them in their own category. Anyone else agree?

    Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

    Are you referring to active MLB players? Minor Leaguers? NCAA or HS players? The place for player comparisons can be varied according to the discussion.

    If you wish to compare Mays vs Mantle, then that likely would be History. Both are more than HoF-worthy, so I doubt that HoF would be the best place. If you're comparing prospects, then the Minor League forum would be the place. If women, then the Women's forum. If two players from the same team, then that team forum.

    Please provide a sample player comparison so that we can better judge what you're discussing, and how it would be done.

    I meant player discusiion threads. You go into history of the game, and theres a Babe Ruth discussion thread. You go to Hall of Fame, and theres all sorts of discussion threads of random players. I dont mean comparing players, just general threads about players. I know theres not too many player threads of todays players, a goodd amount in the HOF forum, but not as many as there could be. I just thought itd be something to throw out there and see what ya'll think of the idea.

    I'd certainly like to see more individual player threads where the merits of that particular player can be discussed. I know he has his detractors, but I feel Cowtipper has done a good job at just initiating conversation about a lot of players in the HOF forum. He never has really let on to his methodology in how he chooses, and he has stressed many times how the threads don't necessitate an endorsement. It's good to be able to discuss someone other than Bert Blyleven and Ron Santo as possible HOFers or where they measure.

    I would really like to see more individual player discussion in the Current Events forum, I really would. The problem would be to keep it from being so repetitious, likke 6 threads on Derek Jeter going on at the same time. Fortunately, I can control that a little as mod of that forum, but that doesn't necessarily lead to threads on other players.

    I'm not sure we need an entire forum on that given the traffic, but I would like to see more of it in general.

    I had a thread about this. Like attendance, tv ratings, and front office. This would look like a great thread idea. I would like to mod the business thread if it gets made.

    Fair enough. I thought it was worth a shot bringing up. I know Bill Burgess does a good job at it, but how about a thread be made, and put in a forum (I dont know which would be most appropriate) but a thread that has a list, and a link of all the player threads started. It will be convenient for people who wanna either look for one, or start one, to see if one has already been made, thus hopefully eliminating the worry of 6 Derek Jeter threads!

    So very time a player thread is created, the list thread gets updated?

    I'm for that if the updating is left to the person creating the player thread.

    That would work. I would volunteer to do it, but Im not on here enough to catch them all.
