Couldn’t Resist

Ok, so I said I wouldn’t come back to this until my paper was done. But I’ve got about 5 pages written and I’m sitting in a Macroeconomics lecture, so you can’t blame me. Plus, I wanted to try out a couple of new features from Baseball-Reference. With the click of a button, their new tool will search my post and link all players names that it finds to their B-Ref page. Pretty cool right? Check it out- Ryan Howard. Manny Ramirez. John Lackey. Amazing.

Here’s another neat tool: posting tables of data. I don’t think this is new, but I haven’t tried it before, so here goes nothing.

Any idea who those stats belong to? You guessed it- Scott Economy. Look at that, I’m studying. Unfortunately the player linker only works for active players. But here’s the link to Mr. Economy’s page anyway in case that fantastic table of minor league dominance was not enough for you.
