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

    With the failure of the other project, I'm going to post the Pirates and Reds this week, and the Tigers and Mets on the 21st. I'll skip the 28th and start the fourth round with the end of the Tigers and Mets on the 4th.

        Del Ennis was the Phillies' power source during the 50's.
        He was in the top 10 in slg % 5 times for the club
        He was in the top 10 in BA 3 times for the club
        He was in the top 10 in WAR among position players for the club 3 times
        He was in the top 10 in HR 8 times for the club and
        He was in the 1op 10 in RBI 8 times for the club.

          Wes Ferrell was at least arguably at his best while an Indian.

          He was in the top 10 in WAR 4 times for the club;
          In 1939-32 he had 2d, 3d, 4th and 6th place finishes in WAR among P;
          He was in the top 10 in ERA 4 times for the club;
          He was in the top 10 in W/L percentage 4 times for the club;
          He was in the top 4 in wins 4 times for the club;
          He was in the top 10 in strikeouts per nine IP three times for the club;
          He was in the top 10 in complete games five times for the club;
          He was in the top 4 in IP three times for the club; and
          He was in the top 10 in strikeouts 4 times for the club.

          I might add that during his time with the Indians, he had the 7th most WAR among pitchers in the majors.

            These are all excellent candidates who are glaring oversights. I plan on making a case for Johnny Kling who I also see as a glaring omission for the Chicago Cubs when I have the time. They were the one team in this project who definitely got short changed.

              George Gore was excellent as a Cub
              He was in the top 7 in WAR among position players 6 times for the team;
              He was in the top 7 in BA 5 times for the team;
              He was in the top 6 in OBP 7 times for the team;
              He was in the top 10 in slugging percentage 6 times for the team;
              He was twice in the top 10 in RBI for the team;
              He was 7 times in the 10 in runs scored for the team;
              He was the best OF in the majors in WAR 4 times (1880, 1882, 1883, and 1885);
              He was the second best OF in the majors in WAR twice (1881 and 1886); and
              He was the sixth best OF in the majors in WAR in 1884, but 4th best in the NL.
              So, he was good enough to be a starting all-star 6 times with the Cubs and a reserve all star another time.

                Billy Herman played 10 years for the Cubs, his first 10, and many of his best
                He was a 7 time all star for the franchise;
                He was mentioned in the MVP voting 5 times for the franchise;
                He was in the top 10 in WAR among the position players 4 times for the franchise;
                He was in the top 10 in runs scored 6 times for the franchise;
                He was best in range factor in 2B four time for the franchise and second three times;
                He was the best 2B in WAR in the NL 5 times (1932 and 1934-37);
                He was the second best 2B in WAR in the NL 3 times (1938-1940)

                So, you've got a darned good fielding 2B who can also hit well. Unsurprisingly, he was consistently all-star quality. He's belongs among the all-time Cubs.

                  King Kelly was.an early star for the Cubs.
                  He was in the top 6 in WAR among position players 4 times for the team;
                  He was in the top 2 in batting average 5 times for the team;
                  He was in the top 10 in OBP 5 times for the team;
                  He was in the top 10 in slugging percentage 6 times for the team;
                  He was in the top 6 in runs scored 7 times for the team; and
                  He was in the top 10 in RBI 7 times for the team.

                  He deserves enshrinement among the Cubs.

                    • Just keeping these cases together. This one was put together by PVNick on behalf of Joan Payson, first owner of the Mets.

                      I did a little digging such as it is and have cut and pasted the article below. For me growing up in the early to mid 70s she and Stengel were sort of the historical faces of the franchise.

                      This Blog


                      Feb 4, 2011The First Met's Owner & Woman Pioneeress: Joan Whitney Payson (1962-1975)
                      Joan Whitney Payson was born on February 5, 1903 in New York City. She was an heiress to the prominent Whitney Family and received much of the fortune when her father passed on. She would marry Charles Shipman Payson, a lawyer and successful businessman himself. The two lived in a 50 room mansion in Manhasset, NY with their own private art gallery.


                      She collected art and has many notable works donated in her name at the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art, in the Joan Payson Galleries. She along with her brother also ran Green Tree Stable & Breeding Farms in Saratoga NY & Lexington Kentucky. Their horses won four Belmont Stakes, two Kentucky Derby’s & a Preakness. The family interests also backed finances for Broadway plays & movies, including A Streetcar Named Desire & Gone With the Wind.


                      Mrs. Payson was a huge baseball fan and became a minority holder in the New York Giants baseball club. Her favorite player was Willie Mays. She voted against the Giants move to California, and sold her shares when they left. She began to work hard to find a replacement team.


                      In 1962 she became the first woman in America to buy a majority share of a sports team. She was the Mets majority stock holder, team President and was involved in baseball operations from 1962-1975. Unfortunately she trusted M. Donald Grant with many decisions in the later years. Her husband Charles Shipman had no interest in baseball. She loved her team, and was good to her players. They also had a deep respect and admiration for her.


                      She was always seen in the front row of Shea Stadium rooting on her team, not in an owner’s box. In 1972 she got Willie Mays back to New York to finish his career as a New York Met.


                      After her passing in 1975, her daughter inherited the team; Lorinda De Roulet.


                      She knew nothing about baseball either, and along with M. Donald Grant they destroyed the organization for the next few years.


                      They sold their shares in 1981 when the Wilpon/ Doubleday ownership took over.

                      • I will require a second, but except for cases I present, I will guarantee any decently made argument (like the one for Joan Payson) that if no one else seconds it, I will. That doesn't guarantee my vote when her (or others that I second) is considered, but does guarantee it will be considered.. I'll assume jjpm74's comment amounts to a seconding of my nominees posted above unless I hear to the contrary from him, whether by a post here or by PM. Of course, others may chime in on any of these cases, whether in favor or not.

                        • If you have any doubt who's in, see this post: http://www.baseball-fever.com/showth...75#post1832175

                          All the teams and some other groups like the Negro Leagues, the American Association, defunct NL teams and the pre 1876 players have the members of their Halls listed, and anyone not in those Halls is someone you are free to try and make the case for. However, I will not second any cases which are not reasonable, and may in fact disallow any which I find clearly ridiculous.

                          • Here's a case by jjpm to add William Shea as a contributor to the Mets:

                            I will guarantee this will be presented.

                              • While making the list above, I discovered that Jim Edmonds was elected to the Cardinals HOF twice, in both the 2nd and 3rd round. Just thought I'd share that tidbit.
