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, Orioles 1

          The Nationals manage to salvage 1 game in Baltimore with a 2-1 win in a rain-delayed game on Sunday.

          Nationals starting pitcher John Lannan evens his record at 4-4, pitching 7.1 innings of 4 hit, 1 run ball. Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie also puts in an impressive performance, pitching 7 innings, giving up 5 hits, 3 walks and 1 run. Jon Rauch collects save #10 for the Nationals.

          Christian Guzman started the offense for Washington with a solo home run in the top of the 3rd. Ryan Zimmerman doubled in the top of the 8th, scoring Felipe Lopez, who is also credited with a double in the contest.

          Melvin Mora and Luke Scott double for the Orioles. The Orioles run came from a Brian Roberts sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 8th.

          Nationals record: 19-26

          Current streak: 1 win

            Congrats on the franchise's 3,000 lifetime victory. Why does Tim Redding pitch so great against my Phillies? This is the second shutout he has thrown against them this season. I think Redding beat the Phils a few times last year as well. Redding is a Phillie killer.

            Ryan Zimmerman is going to be an elite player before long. I don't care if he has been in an early season slump, I would trade anyone on the Phils, except for Utley, for Zimmerman. I'd even trade Ryan Howard straight up for Zimmerman. Howard would provide a cool breeze at the Nats new park with the number of times he strikes out.

              Washington 4, Philadelphia 0

              Washington's Tim Redding pitches 6.1 innings, giving up 7 hits and 2 walks, but gets the outs when he needs them, raising his record to 6-3 with a 4-0 win over the Phillies.

              Philadelphia starter Brett Myers gives up 3 of Washington's 4 runs and is charged with the loss, dropping his record to 2-5.

              The Phillies Geoff Jenkins stroked 2 doubles in the game, and the Phils left 9 men on base. The only 1-2-3 inning Redding managed was the top of the 5th.

              Offensively for the Nationals Felipe Lopez, Christian Guzman, Ryan Zimmerman, Jesus Flores and Lastings Milledge all doubled, Milledge twice, finally showing signs of breaking out of an early season slump.

              Nationals record: 20-26

              Current streak: 2 wins

              Next game: Tuesday, May 20 vs. Philadelphia in DC @ 7:10 PM EDT.

                It's also great to see Zimmerman come around. He's hitting .275 in his last 10games, and .438 in his last 4. Another good thing is that he doesn't have a single K in those last 4 games.

                  Phillies 1, Nationals 0

                  Phillies starter Cole Hamels and Washington starter Jason Bergmann both pitch 7 innings of scoreless baseball but neither figures in the decision.

                  For the Phillies, Tom Gordon secures the win, raising his record to 4-2 and Brad Lidge gets credit for the save.

                  The Nationals Saul Rivera holds the Phillies scoreless in the top of the 8th, but Jon Rauch sees his scoreless inning streak end at 12 and is tagged with the loss, his record now 2-1.

                  Both teams left 10 runners on base, the Nats leaving 2 men on in the 7th, 8th & 9th innings. The Nationals also managed to strikeout 13 times.

                  The only run of the game came from a Shane Victorino double and a Greg Dobbs single for the games' only RBI.

                  Also stroking 2 baggers for the Phillies were Chase Utley and Pedro Feliz.

                  Nationals record: 20-27

                  Current streak: 1 loss

                  Next game: Wednesday, May 21 vs. Philadelphia in DC @ 7:10 PM EDT.

                    Phillies 12, Nationals 2

                    The Phillies bats, being uncharacteristically quiet the first 2 games of this series, unload on Washington pitching for 12 runs in the final game of the 3 game set.

                    Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer gives up 7 hits, but no runs, for his 4th win while reliever Clay Condrey gives up 5 hits and 2 runs but collects his 1st save of the season.

                    On the Washington side things weren't so pretty: Matt Chico gives up 4 runs in 5 innings, dropping his record to 0-6. Jesus Colome proves ineffective, giving up 1 walk, 5 hits and 6 runs in 1/3 of an inning. Chris Schroder also surrenders 2 runs. Joel Hanrahan finishes up the final 2.2 innings without allowing any more damage.

                    The Phillies get doubles from Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. Victorino also homered as did Howard (twice) and Pedro Feliz.

                    The Nats only manage 2 doubles from Felipe Lopez and Jesus Flores while leaving 9 men on base.

                    Speaking of ineffective-the hitting, or should we say lack of hitting, by the Nats leaves 2 men on base in the 2nd and 4th, and a man on second in the 3rd, all of these opportunities with NO outs, and don't manage to capitalize once.

                    After a night off, the Nationals will be in action against the Milwaukee Brewers for a 4 game Memorial Day weekend homestand.

                    Nationals record: 20-28

                    Current streak: 2 losses

                    Next game: Friday, May 23rd vs. Milwaukee in DC @ 7:35 PM EDT.

                      Washington 5, Milwaukee 1

                      The Nationals score 4 unearned runs in the bottom of the 6th inning after an error by Milwaukee shortstop J. J. Hardy and come away 5-1 winners in the first of a 4 game Memorial Day weekend series in Washington.

                      Washington pitcher Brian Sanches, just up from AAA Columbus, collects his first win of the season, while Brewers starter Jeff Suppan sees his record drop to 2-4.

                      The Brewers use 3 pitchers, the Nationals 5. Washington starter Odalis Perez pitches 5 innings, giving up 5 hits and 1 run but does not figure in the decision.

                      The Nationals 5 runs come on only 3 hits, all extra base knocks, with doubles by Ryan Zimmerman and Jesus Flores and a home run by Wily Mo Pena, his first of the season, accounting for 4 of the Nats 5 runs.

                      Milwaukee gets doubles from Jason Kendall and Rickie Weeks. However the Brewers only run comes from an RBI single by loser Jeff Suppan.

                      Milwaukee leaves 7 men on base, the Nationals 3.

                      Nationals record: 21-28

                      Current streak: 1 win

                      Next game: Saturday, May 24 vs. Brewers in DC @ 7:10 PM EDT.

                        Brewers 5, Nationals 2

                        The Brewers Seth McClurg gets a win in his first start since June of 2006, when he was pitching for Tampa Bay, by holding the Nationals to 4 hits and 2 runs in 5 innings. Brewers reliever Salomon Torres earns his 2nd save of the season.

                        John Lannan gets the loss for the Nationals, his record now 4-5. Lannan also pitched 5 innings giving up 5 hits and 3 runs. Joel Hanrahan works 2 innings, giving up 1 run and Jesus Colome also gives up a run in the top of the 8th.

                        Mike Cameron and Corey Hart homer for Milwaukee, Cameron also doubles as does Jason Kendall.

                        Scoring for the Nats came from a Lastings Milledge home run (his first since March 31) and an RBI double from Wil Nieves.

                        Nationals record: 21-29

                        Current streak: 1 loss

                          Nationals 7, Brewers 6

                          Sometimes you just have to take what you can get...

                          The Nationals, up 6-0, surrender 6 runs to the Brewers in the top of the 6th. The score would remain tied until the bottom of the 9th when a Guillermo Mota wild pitch allows Elijah Dukes to score from 3rd with the winning run.

                          The Brewers outhit the Nats 12-8 with 2 Nationals runs coming courtesy of wild pitches from Brewers starter Manny Parra and the game winner from Mota.

                          The Brewers use 4 pitchers in the contest, starter Parra only lasts 4.1 innings, giving up 6 runs to the Nationals. Mota is charged with the loss, his record dropping to 1-3.

                          Nationals starter Tim Redding pitches 5.2 innings, giving up 10 hits and 5 runs. Saul Rivera is charged with the other Milwaukee run. Jon Rauch gets the win in relief, his record now 3-1.

                          Offense for the Brewers comes from doubles by Mike Cameron and Russell Branyan (who goes 2-3 in his first game after being brought up from AAA Nashville) and a Corey Hart home run.

                          The Nationals counter with doubles from Christian Guzman, Lastings Milledge and Wily Mo Pena and Aaron Boone's 4th home run of the season.

                          Nationals record: 22-29

                          Current streak: 1 win

                          Next game: Monday, May 26 vs Brewers in DC @ 1:35 PM EDT.

                            Brewers 4, Nationals 3 (11 innings)

                            The Nationals Jason Bergmann pitches 5.2 scoreless innings but it's all for naught as the Brewers manage to come back and win it in the 11th.

                            The Nationals use 6 pitchers in the extra inning matchup, the Brewers 5.

                            Milwaukee's 4th pitcher of the game, Carlos Villanueva raises his record to 3-5 with Salomon Torres getting his second save in 3 days.

                            Offense for the Nationals comes from solo homers from Christian Guzman and Dmitri Young, with doubles added by Lastings Milledge, Elijah Dukes and Jesus Flores. Unfortunately there weren't enough men on base to make many of these hits meaningful, Washington stranding only 5 runners.

                            On the Milwaukee side, Mike Cameron, Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun all double. Milwaukee managed 9 hits and stranded 9 runners.

                            Saul Rivera is charged with the loss, his record now 3-2.

                            Nationals record: 22-30

                              San Diego 4, Washington 2

                              Washington's anemic lineup only manages 2 runs and 7 hits in the first game of a road trip in San Diego. Christian Guzman did manage 2 doubles ad Aaron Boone's 5th home run of the season with Guzman aboard accounts for the only Nats runs.

                              Shawn Hill pitches 5 innings, giving up 2 runs and 5 hits to the Padres, with Charlie Manning being tagged with the loss.

                              San Diego pitcher Randy Wolf gives up the Boone home run but settles down to hold the Nationals for the remainder of 6 innings. Heath Bell gets his first win of the season for San Diego and Trevor Hoffman collects his 10th save.

                              Randy Wolf helps his cause with a double and the Padres pull ahead with solo home runs from Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Kouzmanoff in the bottom of the 7th inning. Prior to that the Padres Michael Barrett singled with the bases loaded, driving in the Padres 2 other runs.

                              Nationals record: 22-31

                              Current streak: 2 losses

                                Nationals 6, Padres 4

                                Odalis Perez gets his second win of the season, raising his record to 2-4 and Jesus Flores hits a grand slam in the top of the 4th as the Nationals manage a win in San Diego. Perez pitched 6.1 innings in the win, giving up 3 runs.

                                A lastings Milledge homer, his 3rd, and an Aaron Boone account for the other 2 Nats runs to provide the winning margin.

                                Padres starter Shawn Estes is tagged with the loss, his record now 1-1.

                                The Nationals use 4 pitchers in the contest, the Padres 3, with the Nats Jon Rauch getting his 11th save of the season.

                                The Nats gets doubles from Felipe Lopez and Christian Guzman in addition to the homers from Milledge and Flores.

                                Padres offense comes in the form of doubles from Luke Carlin and Tony Clark and a home run from Scott Hairston.

                                Nationals record: 23-31

                                Current streak: 1 win
