  • What's With BBF's Glowing Things?

    I've been looking at certain players and noticed something odd. A player who leads the league gets that number bolded. For some reason, ERA leaders also get a weird yellowish glow behind the numbers.

    Is it just my computer?

    It's not your computer. If you click on "glossary", it says "Gold means awarded ERA title at end of year."

    It's explained here:

      Do you have to click something? I don't see anything glowing - just the boldface text.

          I still don't see it. The link ipitch provided specifically mentions Ty Cobb and his 1910 season. Here's what his Avg's look like to me for his first 12 seasons...

          .240
          .316
          .350
          .324
          .377
          .383
          .420
          .409
          .390
          .368
          .369
          .371

          No glowing thing for any of the years. Just bold/italic.

            It's not really "glowing", it's just a gold background. I just looked at Cobb's page with 3 different browsers. It shows up with Firefox and Chrome, but not with Internet Explorer.

              I actually got up and tryed cleaning my Smart Tv off because I thought I got some kind of stain on my tv when I first saw this.

                Thanks. That's the reason then - I'm using IE.

                  I hate it. It's very unsettling to the eyes. I think it's silly to go through all of that just because of 2012 Cabrera and the 1910 Cobb/Lajoie thing
