MLSD: Many updates

New, 6 comments

There are several changes to the MLSD that I want to bring to your attention:

  1. The database has now been updated through games of May 17th.

  2. In response to the clamoring of at least two people, I added monthly splits to each player's stat table. For now, of course, that's just two extra lines, separating April performance from May performance.

  3. As you are probably aware, the legality of publishing certain baseball-related data is in question. I am comfortable with the legality of what I am doing, but I am not particularly comfortable with what I imagine MLB Advanced Media (the company that operates MLB.com and MiLB.com) thinks of the legality of what I'm doing. With that in mind, I removed the "Overall" line from each player's stat table, because that is the one way in which I was directly duplicating data that MiLB.com already offers. I can't say that I like the change all that much, but it's a concession I'm going to make for the time being.

  4. To somewhat mitigate the effects of removing the "Overall" line from each player's table, I have added a link under each table to the player's stat page at MILB.com.

  5. Because I seem to add a new link to the bottom of each player's table almost every day, I changed the formatting of those links, fitting two per line instead of just one.

  6. All of these changes, except for the links to MiLB.com, also affect each team's and league's stat tables.
