Updated Baseball Fever Policy

Baseball Fever Policy

I. Purpose of this announcement:

This announcement describes the policies pertaining to the operation of Baseball Fever.

Baseball Fever is a moderated baseball message board which encourages and facilitates research and information exchange among fans of our national pastime. The intent of the Baseball Fever Policy is to ensure that Baseball Fever remains an extremely high quality, extremely low "noise" environment.

Baseball Fever is administrated by three principal administrators:
webmaster - Baseball Fever Owner
The Commissioner - Baseball Fever Administrator
Macker - Baseball Fever Administrator

And a group of forum specific super moderators. The role of the moderator is to keep Baseball Fever smoothly and to screen posts for compliance with our policy. The moderators are ALL volunteer positions, so please be patient and understanding of any delays you might experience in correspondence.

II. Comments about our policy:

Any suggestions on this policy may be made directly to the webmaster.

III. Acknowledgments:

This document was based on a similar policy used by SABR.

IV. Requirements for participation on Baseball Fever:

Participation on Baseball Fever is available to all baseball fans with a valid email address, as verified by the forum's automated system, which then in turn creates a single validated account. Multiple accounts by a single user are prohibited.

By registering, you agree to adhere to the policies outlined in this document and to conduct yourself accordingly. Abuse of the forum, by repeated failure to abide by these policies, will result in your access being blocked to the forum entirely.

V. Baseball Fever Netiquette:

Participants at Baseball Fever are required to adhere to these principles, which are outlined in this section.
a. All posts to Baseball Fever should be written in clear, concise English, with proper grammar and accurate spelling. The use of abbreviations should be kept to a minimum; when abbreviation is necessary, they should be either well-known (such as etc.), or explained on their first use in your post.

b. Conciseness is a key attribute of a good post.

c. Quote only the portion of a post to which you are responding.

d. Standard capitalization and punctuation make a large difference in the readability of a post. TYPING IN ALL CAPITALS is considered to be "shouting"; it is a good practice to limit use of all capitals to words which you wish to emphasize.

e. It is our policy NOT to transmit any defamatory or illegal materials.

f. Personal attacks of any type against Baseball Fever readers will not be tolerated. In these instances the post will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the personal attack via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue personal attacks will be banned from the site.

g. It is important to remember that many contextual clues available in face-to-face discussion, such as tone of voice and facial expression, are lost in the electronic forum. As a poster, try to be alert for phrasing that might be misinterpreted by your audience to be offensive; as a reader, remember to give the benefit of the doubt and not to take umbrage too easily. There are many instances in which a particular choice of words or phrasing can come across as being a personal attack where none was intended.

h. The netiquette described above (a-g) often uses the term "posts", but applies equally to Private Messages.

VI. Baseball Fever User Signature Policy

A signature is a piece of text that some members may care to have inserted at the end of ALL of their posts, a little like the closing of a letter. You can set and / or change your signature by editing your profile in the UserCP. Since it is visible on ALL your posts, the following policy must be adhered to:

Signature Composition
Font size limit: No larger than size 2 (This policy is a size 2)
Style: Bold and italics are permissible
Character limit: No more than 500 total characters
Lines: No more than 4 lines
Colors: Most colors are permissible, but those which are hard to discern against the gray background (yellow, white, pale gray) should be avoided
Images/Graphics: Allowed, but nothing larger than 20k and Content rules must be followed

Signature Content
No advertising is permitted
Nothing political or religious
Nothing obscene, vulgar, defamatory or derogatory
Links to personal blogs/websites are permissible - with the webmaster's written consent
A Link to your Baseball Fever Blog does not require written consent and is recommended
Quotes must be attributed. Non-baseball quotes are permissible as long as they are not religious or political

Please adhere to these rules when you create your signature. Failure to do so will result in a request to comply by a moderator. If you do not comply within a reasonable amount of time, the signature will be removed and / or edited by an Administrator. Baseball Fever reserves the right to edit and / or remove any or all of your signature line at any time without contacting the account holder.

VII. Appropriate and inappropriate topics for Baseball Fever:

Most concisely, the test for whether a post is appropriate for Baseball Fever is: "Does this message discuss our national pastime in an interesting manner?" This post can be direct or indirect: posing a question, asking for assistance, providing raw data or citations, or discussing and constructively critiquing existing posts. In general, a broad interpretation of "baseball related" is used.

Baseball Fever is not a promotional environment. Advertising of products, web sites, etc., whether for profit or not-for-profit, is not permitted. At the webmaster's discretion, brief one-time announcements for products or services of legitimate baseball interest and usefulness may be allowed. If advertising is posted to the site it will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the post via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue advertising will be banned from the site. If the advertising is spam-related, pornography-based, or a "visit-my-site" type post / private message, no warning at all will be provided, and the member will be banned immediately without a warning.

It is considered appropriate to post a URL to a page which specifically and directly answers a question posted on the list (for example, it would be permissible to post a link to a page containing home-road splits, even on a site which has advertising or other commercial content; however, it would not be appropriate to post the URL of the main page of the site). The site reserves the right to limit the frequency of such announcements by any individual or group.

In keeping with our test for a proper topic, posting to Baseball Fever should be treated as if you truly do care. This includes posting information that is, to the best of your knowledge, complete and accurate at the time you post. Any errors or ambiguities you catch later should be acknowledged and corrected in the thread, since Baseball Fever is sometimes considered to be a valuable reference for research information.

VIII. Role of the moderator:

When a post is submitted to Baseball Fever, it is forwarded by the server automatically and seen immediately. The moderator may:
a. Leave the thread exactly like it was submitted. This is the case 95% of the time.

b. Immediately delete the thread as inappropriate for Baseball Fever. Examples include advertising, personal attacks, or spam. This is the case 1% of the time.

c. Move the thread. If a member makes a post about the Marlins in the Yankees forum it will be moved to the appropriate forum. This is the case 3% of the time.

d. Edit the message due to an inappropriate item. This is the case 1% of the time. There have been new users who will make a wonderful post, then add to their signature line (where your name / handle appears) a tagline that is a pure advertisement. This tagline will be removed, a note will be left in the message so he/she is aware of the edit, and personal contact will be made to the poster telling them what has been edited and what actions need to be taken to prevent further edits.

The moderators perform no checks on posts to verify factual or logical accuracy. While he/she may point out gross errors in factual data in replies to the thread, the moderator does not act as an "accuracy" editor. Also moderation is not a vehicle for censorship of individuals and/or opinions, and the moderator's decisions should not be taken personally.

IX. Legal aspects of participation in Baseball Fever:

By submitting a post to Baseball Fever, you grant Baseball Fever permission to distribute your message to the forum. Other rights pertaining to the post remain with the ORIGINAL author, and you may not redistribute or retransmit any posts by any others, in whole or in part, without the express consent of the original author.

The messages appearing on Baseball Fever contain the opinions and views of their respective authors and are not necessarily those of Baseball Fever, or of the Baseball Almanac family of sites.

Sincerely,

Sean Holtz, Webmaster of Baseball Almanac & Baseball Fever

  • 2011 Red Sox international scouting and signing

    Lets review the Red Sox signing out of Latin America in 2010 that will be making the profesional start in 2011.

    Edwin Osorio RHP (from Colombia) 6-2 176 17 yrs
    Edwar Garcia RHP (Dominican) 6-4 175 17 yrs
    Aneury Taveras 2B (Dominican) 5-9 175 L/R 18 yrs
    Anthony Amaya CF (From Panama) 5-10 160 L/L 16 yrs
    Dernier Lopez SS (Venezuelan) 6-0 165 B/R 16yrs
    Ynoel Aguero OF (Dominican) 5-10 170 B/R 20 yrs
    Aneudis Peralta 3B (Dominican) R/R 5-10 190 17 yrs
    William Abreu RHP (Dominican 6-1 190-200 lbs 18 yrs.
    Alixon Suarez C (Venezuelan) 6-1 180 R/R 16 yrs
    Jose Espitia RHP (Venezuelan) 6-2 180 17 yrs
    Cleriluis Rondon SS ( Venezuelan) 6-0 155 17 yrs
    Oscar Melendez RHP (Dominican) 6-1 150 17 yrs
    Jose Colorado OF (Mexico) 6-1 170 L/R 20 yrs
    Jeremias Pineda OF (Dominican) 5-11 175 B/R 20 yrs.
    Nelson Arguila RHP (Dominican) 6-2 185 22 yrs

    Not a very impresive group,but Osorio is the top prospect out of this group a former third baseman turned 17 yrs two month ago has a fastball in the high 80's at the present. The Red Sox brass like very much Garcia who also trurned 17 yrs recently. Taveras is a 6.6/60 runner and has some pop in his bat. Amaya played for Panama Jr National team has showed good pop for his size. Lopez glove is ahead of his bat, but has potential. Aguero is believe to be a late bloomer.

            scaffolds, can you tell us more about him. Thanks.
            Watching Derek Jeter make 40 defensive plays and then watching Adam Everett make 40 defensive plays at the same position is sort of like watching video of Barbara Bush dancing at the White House, and then watching Demi Moore dancing in Striptease. (Bill James)

            Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power. If he can continue to hit .260 or so, he'll be useful, and he probably has a future as a backup infielder. (Keith Law)

              found this on Peralta and Taveras on dplbasball.com:

              "Aneury Peralta agrees with Redsox for $100,000. The 3rd basemen was the best hitter on the Toros del Cibao roster, his hands are quick through the hitting zone and creates back spin on every ball he hits. He can pick it on defense and shows a solid 50 arm. His body type is a concern, he will need to watch his weight through his development. Aneury Tavarez (Potros) was also picked up by Redsox for $90,000. Tavarez is a plus-plus runner (6.3 60yd) with solid hitting ability and power. He's an offensive 2B who should move quickly through the Redsox system."

                I have heard that Taveras is closer to 6.6/60 speed than 6.3, but anyway he is a above average runner, according what i heard Perralta defense is above average with good power potential.. I am also hearing that Peralta has also caught (C) before.

                  Dominicans aren't the only ones playing in the Dominican Prospect league (DPL) Cubans Rafael Valdez and Kenen Reyna are also playing in the league. Valdez is a SS who will be 17 yrs next month and Reyna is a 25 yrs outfielder both will be playing in the league All Star game at the end of January and are available to sign profesional contracts.

                    Mexican Luis Heredia was one or two of the top pitching prospects avilable in the 2010 Internatinal market and the Pirates signing him for a reported 2.6 Million dollar bonus. One of the top pitching prospects available for the July 2 International signing date also comes from Mexico in the name of Robert Michael Garcia Quiros. Garcia is 6-2 175 has a quick and loose arm and throws a fastball around 90 at this time9Should throw harder in the future, his off speed pitches aren't as advanced but developing.

                    A Red Sox note, Cuban defector RHP Reiner Robles was at the the Red Sox baseball academy in the Dominican in the last few days. Robles who is 22 yrs (belived) throws mid 90's fastball with very good sinking action. Reiner command and control needs some work.

                              Baseball America reported that the Cubs signed Cuban defectors Ruben Silva and Yaniel Cabeza. Silva a 21 yrs outfielder signed for a bonus between $1-1.2 Millions, while also 21 yrs Cabeza signed for $500 000 dollars.

                              Talking about Cuban defectors, there is talk among the scouting community that Yasiel Balaguer (17 yrs) is looking for a bonus of 18-20 Millions (the years aren't known now, the marlin seems very interested in Balaguer. Jorge Soler (18 yrs) may be the best of the rest of Cuban defector who haven't signed a profesional contract. Soler also a outfielder is about 6-3 205 R/R with 5 potential tools, very good bat speed, potential explosive power and above arm.
