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

    Nationals 2, Cubs 0

    Sunday, April 27

    John Lannan throws 7 innings of shut out ball, giving up just 4 hits as the Nats rebound against the Cubs. Lannan's record is now 2-2.

    The Cubs Ted Lilly gives up just 2 runs in the bottom of the 2nd but that would be all the Nats would need as Luis Ayala and Jon Rauch pitch 1 inning a piece and make the lead hold. Rauch gets his 4th save of the season.

    Kosuke Fukudome doubled for the Cubs. Both teams squandered scoring chances, the Cubs leave 8 men on base, the Nationals 5.

    Nationals record: 9 wins, 17 losses.

    Current streak: 1 win.

    Next game: Tuesday, April 29th vs. Atlanta in Washington @ 7:10PM EDT.

      Washington 6, Atlanta 3

      Tuesday, April 29

      Washington FINALLY gets to win number 10 (double digits!) as the Nationals defeat the Braves 6-3.

      The highlight of this game was the Nats offense getting untracked with back-to-back home runs from Ryan Zimmerman and Nick Johnson in the bottom of the third. Also contributing to the offense, Lastings Milledge, Austin Kearns and Ryan Zimmerman doubled for the winners.

      Atlanta's Chipper Jones homered and Mark Teixeria doubled in the losing effort.

      Tom Glavine goes 6 innings for Atlanta, giving up 2 runs, but does not figure in the decision. Blaine Boyer is charged with the loss, surrendering 4 runs in 1/3 of an inning.

      Tim Redding goes 6 innings for Washington, also giving up 2 runs, and does not figure in the decision either. Saul Rivera gets the win, raising his record to 2-1. Luis Ayala pitched in the 8th, Chad Cordero only managed to get 1 out in the 9th before leaving the game with what is reported to be a strained lat muscle. The Nats have put him on the 15 day disabled list. Jon Rauch gets his 5th save, finishing the 9th.

      Nationals record: 10 wins, 17 losses.

      Current streak: 2 wins.

      Next game: Wednesday, April 30th vs. Atlanta in DC @ 4:35PM EDT.

        Nationals 3, Braves 2 (12 innings)

        In a game filled with scoring opportunities, the Nationals manage to hang on to the lead and score 2 runs in the bottom of the 12th inning after loading the bases on a couple of bizarre plays.

        Atlanta uses 6 pitchers, Washington 4, and once again, neither starter figures in the decision. Jurrens pitches 7 innings of 2 hit, 1 run ball for the Braves, Hill goes 8 innings, giving up 4 hits and 1 run for the Nats.

        Saul Rivera gives up Atlanta's second run in the top of the 12th but gets the win.

        Braves reliever Manny Acosta is charged with the loss.

        With the Nats down 2-1 in the bottom of the 12th, and the bases loaded after a failed bunt attempt by Wil Nieves goes between Acosta's legs, Acosta walks in the tying run. Braves pitcher Carlyle comes in to a bases loaded situation with no outs and surrenders a game winning single to Felipe Lopez.

        Nationals record: 11 wins, 17 losses.

        Current streak: 3 wins.

        Next game: Thursday, May 1 vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates in DC @ 7:35PM EDT.

          I'm not sure if Aa3rt is MIA or what, but i thought i would just update where he left off. If that's ok...

          Since winning in extra frames vs the Braves 3-2, Nats have gone 3-1 in their last 4, with a winning streak of 2.

          Nats 3 Pit 2
          Nats 4 Pit 11
          Nats 9 Pit 8
          Nats 5 Pit 2

          They had a day off Monday and are set to play @ Houston tonight @ 8:05PM EST.
          Probable starters are Hill (0-0 3.50 ERA) vs Chacon (0-0 ERA 3.32)

          "Lopez received a routine day off from the starting lineup on Sunday, though he later entered the game as a defensive replacement.
          It's odd to see Lopez being superior defensively to anyone at shortstop, until you see that the Nats started D'Angelo Jimenez at short."

            d33ps-Thanks for pinch hitting! I haven't been totally MIA as I'm trying to keep the "This Date in Senators History" thread up to date, but have had a number of things in my life crop up that interfere with what I truly enjoy.

            BTW-This is by no means "my" thread and all BBF members are welcome and encouraged to contribute. I'm a big kid (or so my wife of 27 years tells me ) and my feelings won't be hurt if someone else steps in to help keep this thread up to date.

            Thanks again!

              Houston 6, Washington 5

              Tuesday, May 6

              The Nationals collide with the surprisingly resurgent Astros in Houston, with the Astros raising their record above the .500 mark (17-16) for the first time since April 22nd, while the Nationals drop to 14-19.

              Luis Ayala is charged with the loss, Houston's Doug Brocail gets the win, Jose Valverde the save.

              Once again, neither starting pitcher figures in the decision-Shawn Hill starts for the Nationals, pitching 5.1 innings, giving up 8 hits and 3 runs.

              Houston starter Shawn Chacon pitches 7 innings, giving up 8 hits and 4 runs.

              The Nationals manage their first 3 homer game of the season, with round trippers coming from Nick Johnson, Austin Kearns and a pinch hit home run from Aaron Boone. Christian Guzman and and Ryan Zimmerman contribute doubles.

              Lance Berkman and Carlos Lee both doubled twice for the Astros with Kaz Matsui also contributing a 2 bagger.

              Berkman also tied an Astros team record by going 5-5 in the game, a career high for him.

              An ugly series of events by Washington in the 7th inning would make the difference in the scoring-a Lance Berkman hit bounces off the glove of Lastings Milledge, being scored as a double. Berkman stole third and was balked in by Saul Rivera.

              Nationals record: 14-19

              Current streak: 1 loss

              Next game: Wednesday, May 7th vs. the Astros in Houston @ 8:05PM EDT.

                Astros 4, Nationals 3

                Wednesday, May 7th

                A walk, a wild pitch and a Carlos Lee single in the bottom of the 9th give the Astros a 4-3 win in an otherwise tightly pitched ballgame.

                Odalis Perez started for the Nationals, giving up 3 runs in 5 innings. Roy Oswalt went 7 innings for the Astros also giving up 3 runs.

                Joel Hanrahan is charged with the loss, walking Kaz Matsui, who was moved to second when Lance Berkman was intentionally walked. Jesus Colome replaced Hanrahan on the mound and allowed Matsui to advance to 3rd on a wild pitch, setting up a Carlos Lee RBI single to end the game.

                Washington's offense came from 2 Ryan Zimmerman home runs, the first with Christian Guzman on base.

                Felipe Lopez and Wily Mo Pena doubled for Washington. Unfortunately the Pena double was negated when he was thrown out at home by centerfielder Brad Ausmus by at least two steps on an ensuing play.

                Lance Berkman hit his 11th home run of the season, Jose Valverde raises his record to 4-1.

                Nationals record: 14-20

                Current streak: 2 losses.

                Next game: Thursday, May 8th vs. Astros in Houston, game time 8:05PM EDT.

                  Nationals 8, Astros 3

                  Thursday, May 8

                  The Astros 5 game winning streak and the Nationals 2 game losing streak end when the Nationals finally manage to come up with some offense and avoid the blunders that proved their undoing the last 2 games.

                  Nationals pitcher John Lannan evens his record at 3-3 while Astros pitcher Brandon Backe is charged with the loss, his record now 2-4.

                  Willie Harris and Rob Mackowiak both hit their first home runs as Nationals, with Aaron Boone and Nick Johnson contributing doubles.

                  Ty Wiggington doubles for Houston, and Lance Berkman continues to feast on Nats pitching with a 2 for 3 night.

                  Both teams used 4 pitchers, this time both of the starters figure in the decision.

                  Nationals record: 15-20

                  Current streak: 1 win.

                  Next game: Friday, May 9 vs. the Florida Marlins in Washington (if the rains subside) @ 7:35PM EDT.

                    The Marlins continue their mastery of the Nationals, upping their record in the season series to 6-1. The Marlins are now winners of 5 straight.

                    Tim Redding gets the start, and the loss, for the Nationals, his record for the season now 4-3.

                    Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco gets the win raising his record to 2-3.

                    Florida uses 5 pitchers in the contest, Washington 4.

                    Christian Guzman doubles for the Nats, his 10th of the season. Doubling for the Marlins were Hanley Ramirez and Luis Gonzalez.

                    Washington strands 9 runners, Florida 5.

                    Nationals record: 15-21.

                    Current streak: 1 loss.

                    Next game: Saturday, May 10 @ Washington, game time @ 7:10PM EDT.

                      Marlins 11, Nationals 0

                      The Nationals Mike O'Connor, making his first start since September of 2006, surrenders a home run to the Marlins Cody Ross on the first pitch of the game. This would be the only offense the Marlins would need as the Nats are held to 3 hits, but the Marlins hitters were just warming up.

                      Dan Uggla would drive in 5 runs, 4 with a grand slam in the top of the 4th and Wes Helms would also homer for the Marlins. Treanor and Luis Gonzalez would contribute doubles to the Marlins cause.

                      Almost overlooked in the offensive outburst, Andrew Miller pitches 7 strong innings, holding the Nats to 2 hits and raising his record to 3-2.

                      For the Nationals, Mike O'Connor is tagged with the loss, giving up 6 hits, 6 walks and 9 runs in 3.1 innings. Joel Hanrahan and Matt Chico would also be charged with 1 run each.

                      The only offense the Nats managed to mount were 3 singles, 2 by Felipe Lopez and the other by Christian Guzman, who also managed a stolen base.

                      Not that anyone needs reminding but the Nationals are now 1-7 versus the Marlins in this young season.

                      Nationals record: 15-22

                      Current streak: 2 losses.

                      Next game: Sunday, May 11th vs the Marlins @ 1:35PM EDT.

                        Marlins 5, Nationals 4

                        The Marlins complete the sweep of the Nationals in Washington with a 5-4 Sunday afternoon victory.

                        A 7 inning, 5 hit, 2 run effort by Shawn Hill is wasted as Luis Ayala gives up 3 runs in the top of the 8th for the loss.

                        Scott Olsen started for the Marlins pitching 6 innings and giving up 4 runs. Logan Kensing gets the win, his record now 2-0 and Kevin Gregg gets his 7th save.

                        Offense for the Nationals comes from a Jesus Flores double, Aaron Boone who tripled and homered and a Ronnie Belliard homer.

                        However, that was overcome by 3 Marlins homers, 2 from Dan Uggla and the ultimate game winner from Jeremy Hermida off Luis Ayala in the top of the 8th inning.

                        Nationals record: 15-23

                        Current streak: 3 losses

                        Next game: Monday, May 12th in New York vs. the Mets at 7:10PM EDT (if the monsoon now hitting the east coast lets up)

                          Washington 10, New York 4

                          On a cold, windy, rainy night, more like early April than mid-May, the Nationals are 10-4 winners over the Mets with Nats pitcher Odalis Perez finally getting his first win of the season after 9 starts.

                          With the Nationals team BA a National League worst at .237, Perez helps his own cause with 3 hits and 2 RBI.

                          Mets starter Nelson Figueroa gets the loss, giving up 4 walks, 5 hits and 4 earned runs in 5 innings of work.

                            Two former Nationals team up to provide the Mets with 5 of their 6 runs in a 6-3 New York win.

                            Mets pitcher John Maine raises his record to 5-2, pitching 6 innings of 2 hit, 1 run ball. Billy Wagner earns his 8th save for the Mets.

                            John Lannan takes the loss for the Nats, dropping his record to 3-4. Lannan also pitched 6 innings, but gave up 12 hits and 4 runs.

                            The Mets offense saw former Nationals outfielder Ryan Church go 2-4 with a double and a homer and 4 RBI. Former Nats catcher Brian Schneider doubled as did Mets 3rd baseman David Wright.

                            Offense for the Nats was limited to just 4 hits overall, with Elijah Dukes finally getting his first hit of the season, a double, after going 0-11. Ryan Zimmerman hit a homer for the Nats with Christian Guzman aboard.

                            Nationals record: 16-24

                            Current streak: 1 loss

                              Washington's Tim Redding pitches 6 innings of 2 hit, 1 run ball and Ryan Zimmerman connects for his 7th homer of the season as the Nationals win 5-3 in New York.

                              Mets starter Claudio Vargas pitches 6.1 innings, giving up only 3 hits and 2 runs but is tagged with the loss.

                              Jon Rauch earns save number 8 for the Nats.

                              In addition to the Zimmerman homer, Felipe Lopez hits his 5th double of the young season. For the Mets, Brian Schneider hits his second home run.

                              Nationals record: 17-24

                              Current streak: 1 win

                                The Mets Mike Pelfry and the Nationals Jason Bergmann, just back from AAA Columbus, engage in a pitcher's duel, with Bergmann the eventual winner.

                                Pelfry tossed a no-hitter through 6 innings before it was broken up by an Aaron Boone single in the seventh.

                                The games' only run was scored by the Nats in the top of the eighth when Jesus Flores doubled and was advanced by a Willie Harris bunt and a Felipe Lopez sacrifice fly. Flores' double was the only extra base hit of the game.

                                A spectacular diving catch by Willie Harris in the bottom of the ninth with a runner on base helped preserve the win for Bergmann. Aaron Boone made some good plays at first. Boone was filling in for Nick Johnson, who is once again headed to the disabled list.

                                Jon Rauch earns his ninth save of the season.

                                Nationals record: 18-24

                                Current streak: 2 wins

                                Next game: The "Battle of the Beltways" resumes Friday, as the Nationals head to Baltimore to take on the Orioles in a 3 game set at OPACY (Orioles Park At Camden Yards), first game Friday, May 17th @ 7:05PM EDT.
