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

  • Mark Teixeira's Home Run Scoreboard

    Mark Teixeira Home Run Scoreboard

    HRs for Career.................405
    HRs as NYY......................202
    HRs with Others.......,,,,,,,,203
    (Rangers, Braves, Angels)



    YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT TEX, A LIFELONG YANKEES FAN, WILL WANT TO FINISH HIS CAREER WITH MORE HOME RUNS AS A YANKEE THAN WITH HIS OTHER TEAMS AND HE HAS 5 MORE WEEKS TO TRY TO ACCOMPLISH THIS.

    Sept. 9: Tex's Grand slam against the Rays means tha he has now hit an equal amount of HRs for the Yankees as he did for his other teams:
    Yankees: 203 HRs
    Others: 203 HRs
    Total: 406 HRs

    Here's another stat to look at regarding Tex. I'll call it the M.T. Hits to Games Scoreboard.
    2003-2015: 1746 Games - 1783 Hits
    2016 (as of 9/9): 101 Games - 70 Hits
    Total: 1847 Games - 1853 Hits.

    The trend is downward, but will Tex be able to finish his MLB career with more hits than games played. 22 Yankees regular season games remain. Tex has played sporadically after the promotion to the big leagues of Tyler Austin.

    Here's a few close calls among players who played in the last 20 years: More Games (not quite averaging a hit per game) - Paul Konerko 2349 Games/2340 Hits; More Hits (Averaging slightly better than a hit per game) - Terry Pendleton 1893 Games/1897 Hits; EVEN (averaging exactly a hit per game) : Luis Gonzalez 2591 Games/2591 Hits.

            Teixeira joins A-Rod, Jeter, Pettite, and Rivera as Yankees who have retired in the last four years without advancing to the postseason in their final year. I hope this is the end for Girardi too, given our two biggest rivals (Boston and Mets) both made the playoffs. I really want Joe Torre back as manager. Jim Leyland would also be nice (the irony behind hiring him is that he beat the Yankees three times in the postseason as Tigers manager, the 2012 ALCS being the turning point for Girardi).
            The playoffs should expand eventually, but only if MLB itself expands.

            See my blog for more info.

              You have to figure that Torre, 76 and Leyland, 72 are too old and can't be lured out o retirement. Do the Yankees have someone within their organization, a coach, or a minor leagjue manager who would be the top candidate to replace Girardi?

                  Pena had 1,950 games behind the plate (6th most all-time). Catchers often make good managers.
                  Who did they have managing AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre? They won the International League championship and then beat the Pacific Coast League champion (El Paso - San Diego Affiliate) for the AAA championship.

                    Those guys had plenty of division titles, league titles, and World Series titles between them. No one is shedding any tears for them because they didn't make the playoffs in their last years, except maybe a few over-sentimental Yankees fans.

                      Teixeira's final numbers were 206 in Yankee stadium, 203 elsewhere. Strangely similar HR distribution to another switch hitter Mickey Mantle who hit 266 at Yankee stadium and 270 elsewhere..

                        All of the aforementioned players at least were able to experience the postseason and win the WS as well. Other players like Hank Aaron, Joe Morgan and Steve Carlton also did not advance to the post season in their final year of playing. It happens, not every good player experiences a storybook send off. Think about in times when there were no playoffs -just the WS; Ted Williams went to only one and did not win it.

                          Tex finished with 206 HR as a Yankee and 203 HR with other teams. (Not 206 in Yankee stadium). He actually only hit 113 HR in Yankee Stadium. That total includes a few he hit as an opponent and a few in he hit in Old Yankee Stadium.

                            Mark Teixeira finished his career with 1862 hits in 1862 games. There is only one player in major leagues history who has finished with the same number of hits and games who had a longer career than Tex.
                            Luis Gonzalez (of World Series winning hit against the Yankees fame in 2001 and owner of a 57 home run season) had 2,591 hits in 2,591 games in 19 MLB seasons. (1990-2008).

                              I forgot, Tex played for other teams as well. BTW, I think its 118 -five was hit at the old Yankee Stadium. Tex was a Yankee in 2009, the year that Yankee Stadium 3 was opened. Before that the old Yankee Stadium was a visiting ball park. Thanks for the reminder.
