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

Collier is a first round pick that has been disappointing thus far, but showed enough potential last year at High A Clearwater that the parent club does not want to give up on him at this point.
    What may have saved Collier was his recent stint in the AFL. He showed much better plate discipline (way too many Ks in the minors for his lack of power so far), and put together a slash-line of .371/.461/.532 . He should start out in Clearwater next season with a possible move to Reading if he can use this AFL experience to get his game together.

      Former Phillie, Hector Luna has agreed to a one-year, $450,000 contract with the Chunichi Dragons of Japan's Central League.

      He could hit 30+ homers over there.

        Free agent, Koji Uehara, has been named recently (by Ken Rosenthal IIRC) as a possible target for the Phillies as a set-up man. Even though he's only been in the league for a few seasons, he's soon to be 38 years old. But his "stuff" is pretty good.

        0.921
        9.8 K/9IP
        231 K
        29 BB

        His K/BB rate is really strong. He was injured last year for a bit, but seems to have been fairly healthy prior to that. Estimated cost looks to be a good bit less than Mike Adams though it may require a 2-year deal to get something done. I'm not a believer in putting too much money into the pen, but we did see this season how hit-n-miss relievers can be - especially inexperienced ones. Ruben stressed last offseason that he wanted more veterans in the pen, and while going cheaper with Qualls hardly worked out, I can see him investing more cash into one this season.

          Jayson Stark of ESPN.com was told by agents who have spoken with the Phillies that Josh Hamilton is "no longer on their list."

          B.J. Upton or Cody Ross always seemed like more realistic options for the Phils, though general manager Ruben Amaro wouldn't rule out a marquee signing if it's the right fit. "I don't know that yet," he said. "We haven't been given a real budget. I know it's not unlimited, but that's not usually how we work. There are limitations, but each situation is unique, in and of itself. We didn't budget for Cliff Lee. But we signed Cliff Lee. We haven't budgeted for a bunch of things we've done. Each situation is different."

          Stark also reported that the Phillies "batted around the idea" of an extension for Roy Halladay but put an end to the talks after he started having shoulder issues.

          The preliminary talks involved keeping Doc in Philly beyond 2013 when his contract expires and pushing his average annual value up to around $24 million, which is what Cliff Lee is getting paid. General manager Ruben Amaro said they've "kicked it around, but we tabled it," though he wouldn't rule out resuming talks eventually. "I guess it's still possible," said Amaro. "But a lot has to do with how he feels and how he performs. So that's a decision and a conversation that would probably have to go into the spring, and maybe into the season."

            [QUOTE=Ben Grimm;2089290]Not much of an offer, huh? Here's part of an interview when he was mentioned as possibly returning to the Astros.

            - - - - - - - - - - -

            If Berkman does decide to keep playing in the wake of recurring knee problems, regular playing time and money seem to be Berkman's primary concerns for not just the Astros, but any team looking for his services. - Ben Grimm.

            Berkman sounds like he's another Kenny Lofton. After having a pretty good year with Texas and Cleveland and being a part of the Indians post-season run (with a satisfying victory over the Yankees and their flying insect-plagued reliever, Joba Chamberlain in one playoff round in 2007, a 40-year-old Lofton found that offseason that the only team bidding for his services was the Indians. Rather than take an offer in the 1.5 million range, which he considered an insult to A GUY WITH A ,299 LIFETIME AVERAGE AND OVER 600 STOLEN BASES, LOFTON EFFECTIVELY PRICED HIMSELF OUT OF THE MARKET AND WOULDN'T ADJUST his thinking to his current market value. LOFTON never played another major league game (He'll make his first appearence on the Hall Of Fame ballot in the pending election for the Class of 2013.)
            -Berkman runs the same risk, but since he'll only turn 37 next year, he may yet find a taker. Even with his 2012 salary of well over $10 million, If someone offers him $ 4 Mil. for a one-year contract for 2013, I'd say that's an offer he should accept, since he's coming off such an injury-plagued season. He may not think so now, but he's going to have to prove himself all over again!

              Signing Uehara, who some people jokingly refer to as "O'Hara" will be a good move for the Phillies as long as: NIck Swisher either stays in the American League or the Phillies sign him. Swisher hits Koji like he owns him and that includes a couple of big walk-off home runs against him.

                The Winter Meetings will be here before you know it (Dec. 3 -6), in fact they will be concluding exactly two weeks from today (Thanksgiving). Highlights will include: Dec. 3 - announcement of Hall Of Fame selections from the start of organized baseball era in the 1870s through 1946. Dec. 4 - Hall Of Fame Writer is announced. Dec. 5 - HallOf FaME bROADCASTER SELECTION IS ANNOUNCED and Dec. 6 - Rule 5 - Major & Minor League Drafts are held. Of course throughout this whole period trade proposals will be swirling about and some Free Agents may even visit the Meetings (held this year in Nashville, TN) and General Managers will make their pitches to them..

                  It's obvious that the Phillies have to bolster their bullpen in the long relief and set-up man areas. Why are almost all the options mentoined so far guys like Uehara who are 35 plus. Are there no younger relievers who have completed the requisite six years for free agency who are 30 or under.
                  As Bruce Springsteen is fond of shouting at breaks between songs at his concerts, "Is there anybody Alive out there?"

                    I loved when Kenny Lofton played here. He was by far my favorite AL player in the 90s, and while he certainly wasn't the same with the Phils in '05, he still could play at a fairly high level. I think what may have made Lofton "outprice" himself is the fact that the Rangers blew him over with a $6M deal when they signed him in 2007. Considering he was just as effective that year as he was the previous one (which led to the overpay), maybe a 75% decrease in salary was a bit of a slap in the face.

                        Halladay is 199-100 with over 2,000 strikeouts - Great career numbers, but General Managers are sensitive to even the slightest dowturn in performance. His 11-8 mark in 2012, with a fairly long stint on the Disabled List just wan't vintage Halladay. If the downturn continues in '13 then surely RAJr. is not going to shell out the type of money Ben Grimm mentioned to keep Roy in Philly after his current contract expires..

                            Halladay is 199-100 with over 2,000 strikeouts - Great career numbers, but General Managers are sensitive to even the slightest dowturn in performance. His 11-8 mark in 2012, with a fairly long stint on the Disabled List just wan't vintage Halladay. If the downturn continues in '13 then surely RAJr. is not going to shell out the type of money Ben Grimm mentioned to keep Roy in Philly after his current contract expires..
                            Yes. This is a big year for both Roy and Ruben when it comes to Roy's contract. Ideally, Roy's lights-out and pitches enough innings to simply have his one-year option vest for $20M. Unfortunately, because he could only go 150 or so innings last year, he'll need to go 260 for that to happen in '13. Basically, he'd need to match his CYA years in both performance and innings and that's a bit much to ask from a pitcher turning 36 years old.

                            Even if Roy only pitches like "average Halladay", he'd be better than most #2s on teams' rotations. That alone will garner high interest on the FA market next year, and being that he won the CYA and came in 2nd only a year ago, it's recent enough for teams to offer a multi-year deal in the hopes they'd get one of those great seasons out of him. I don't like the risk for this team. Hamels is now the long-term #1 and this franchise has spent years developing pitching talent. Somebody needs to come up in the next year or so and show some kind of payoff. And I'm not talking about the Worleys and Cloyds of the world. I mean one of these perceived top of the rotation types to finally show something.

                              The Phils signed one-time prospect Josh Fields to a minor league contract.

                              Fields came up through the White Sox system and was looked at as the 3B to take over for Joe Crede, who was dealing with injuries and nearing free agency. He had some pop in his bat, but had trouble with pitch recognition. The Sox learned quickly that Fields also couldn't play 3B very well defensively, so they began shifting him around. Last year, he was in the Dodgers system playing AAA ball. His offensive numbers were decent, but that should be expected from a 29 year old with MLB experience in the PCL.

                              He looks now to be simply OF depth who, if gets hot, can maybe get called up in an emergency.

                                With the signing of Josh Fields, I guess the Phillies annual acquisition of AAAA players has begun. Some of these players have been back and forth between the majors and AAA with the frequency of a Yo-Yo and all have at least limited major leagues experience. These players are signed with the AAA-Lehigh Valley club particularly in mind, and since they have some major league track record, calling them up to replace injured or underperforming players on the Opening Day 25 man roster is often considered preferable to rushing a young guy to the majors as a temporary replacement with no major leagues experience whatsoever and testing him in the middle of a major league pennant race. Eventually patterns emerage and these players can be filed under the following categories:

                                Some guys don't work out at all and never get even a cup of coffee with the Phillies : Luis Montanez, Scott Posednik, Scottt Elarton, Pat Misch, Dontrelle Willis.
                                Some guys produce some limited returns at the MLB level for the Phils: Hector Luna, Jason Pridie, Cody Ransom. Juan Perez, Raul Valdes, Dane Sardinha, Brian Sanches.
                                Other guys succeed and make themselves 'Phixtures in Philly' : Eric Kratz, Kevin Fransden.
                                Still other guys pass under the Phillies radar, get released and wind up succeeding in the majors elsewhere: Jason Grilli.

                                As I said at the start of this post. - The Phillies' AAAA Talent Acqusition portion of the offseason has officially begun.
