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

    Jake -- It seems hard to say Morales was a disappointment. He had been away from competition for over a year, came to U.S. in May, tore up A-Advanced, and then was absolutely on fire in Double-A by the time the season ended. After that, he had a good showing in the AFL, albeit with doubles power and not HR power.

    Keep in mind, on top of the cultural adjustment, he started in High-A, which probably 2% of new players do, and then he was seeing every pitcher for the first time in High A and Double-A.

      Jake: What else do you want the guy to do? He was suspended from the Cuban league. He went to the Dominican Republic and did not play to much. He came 2 months after the season started. He did was he was supposed to do. Let give the guy sometimes to get used to the cheese burgers and Ceasar salads as oppose to black beans, rice and roast pork. He needs to learn some English and get used to America. May be you were born in the USA, but I did not. I understand what an immigrant go through. It does not matter how much money you have. You need to fit in.

        I thought I was done with this topic!

        Is really the Cuban Nationbal League an A ball?

        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        The New York-Penn State league is for very young players that need to work on their skills. Is it?



        Since Rene Arocha defected in 1993, these are the Cuban pitchers who have seen MLB action. I went ahead and look for the Japanese pitchers stats since 1993. I am doing the pitchers because it is where the larger pool is. For the position players, non of the Cuban defectors have come with Ichiro or H. Matsui resume back home. Maybe Kendry Morales or Juan Miguel Miranda, but he only play a 2 or 3 seasons back home and he is not in the majors anyway.

        In my opinion, Japanese and Cuban players share some similarities such as leaving their best years in Japan or Cuba. In other words, they come past their primes. In addition to this, the following are some issues afecting players from these two countries.

        The Japanese and Cuban players have to deal with an adjustment period, language and culture barrier. You may argue that Spanish is closer to English that Japanese. However, Japanese people have access to Satellite English channels while Cubans do not have that luxury. Our society is a very closed society. The only country that has a closer society than us is North Korea. I am sure some Muslim countries are very strict too on this. I never had contacts with tourists or watched an English TV stations while in Cuba. You can say I was a cave man isolated from the world. This is the only way Castro can survive. We do not have access to the Internet either. The Cuban government, if you can call it a government, does not want defectors to do well.

        Japanese players have money and live in a free society. I never heard of the Japanese government retaining or blackmailing their families or trying to escape Japan to play in the ML. They can come straight from Japan and join MLB and comeback to Japan in the offseason. We do not have that luxury.

        The Japanese pitchers have a .05 ERA better than the Cubans.

        How good Japanese baseball is? Don't some experts consider it close to Major Leagues too.

        My friends, there is no way that the Cuban National league is A ball.

        The stats are there. Nobody can hide them.

        Castro has done many things wrong. But that does not mean we still do not have good players.
        What happen to the USA NHL. How many Russians and players from the former East Communist block made it right away?

        How many countries have the baseball structure that Cuba has? I updated the Cuban Baseball Structure Thread. I hope when Castro is gone from the picture, the new government maintain some of the structure like championships for the 10 through junior categories. The ML teams will have a feast 90 miles south of Key West. That will mean the end of the Cuban National League and the rebirth of the Cuban Winter League.

          This is a ridiculous statement. A four team league that plays just 30 games is not really a league. That's not enough teams or games. The Cuban Super League is essentially four all-star teams with all the top talent concentrated on four teams. What if the majors created a Super Major League with just four teams? That would be an incredible amount of talent on just four teams. But it wouldn't really be league.

          The Cuban Super League was created when the IBAF allowed professional players compete for their countries. The Cuban National League only have 90 games. The ML has 162 games. By adding the Super League, players can play 30 high level extra games to prepare against the professional players.
          In the past, Cuba had the National League and the Selective League(Serie Selectiva). The Selective serie had 8 teams.
          They keep changing the format and structure. That is for sure.

                            "45th Cuban National Serie 2005-2006 Standings as of 12/22/05"

                            The 45th Cuban National Series presents Isla de la Juventud Grapefruit Croppers as leader of Group A. The surprising Grapefruit Croppers are enjoying the biggest lead among group leaders. Other group leaders are Industriales Lions, Las Tunas Magicians and Granma Sorrels.


                            A spectacular closing of year waits for the 45 National Series with Isla de la Juventud as the main protagonist. The Grapefruit Croppers had won 9 games in a raw before losing to Ciego de Ávila Tigers. Its impressive nine consecutive victories gave them a balance of (17/9).


                            In Group B, Los Industriales Lions lead the group with a (18/8) record. The Lions are followed by the Havana Cowboys and the Santi Spiritus Roosters.


                            In Group C, Las Tunas Magicians have the best record in the tournament with (19/7). This group also features the Villa Clara Orange Growers at (16/9) who were displaced to the second place after a spectacular beginning and the Ciego de Ávila Tigers with a (15/11) record.


                            In Group D, Granma Sorrels are in first place with a (16/10) record. The Sorrels are followed by the Holguín Hounds and the disappointed champ Santiago de Cuba Wasps.


                            At these moments, team hitting stand at excellent 281 although few home runs (220). Team fielding average is a high 970 and team pitching stand at 4.31 showing an obvious improvement because now there are eight teams that are below four ERA. The best team pitching ERA is a 3.26 of the Industriales Lions.


                            The 5 games difference between Isla de la Juventud Grapefruit Croppers over Pinar del Rio Cigar Makers, the traditional leader of Group A, is due to the great performance of the renewed Grapefruit Croppers team commanded by Armando Johnson but also by the Cigar Makers poor offensive production. The Cigar makers pitchers also have had mixed results led by veteran Pedro L. Lazo (3-3) and Yunieski Maya (2-3).
