Quote of the day
"That's one of the reasons we're out there hitting every day before the position players, because you never know." -- Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo, whose pinch hit double in the 10th inning drove in the winning run. Gallardo has a career batting average of .202 with 12 home runs and 41 RBIs.
Over the past week or so, I've made a number of enhancements to various pages and files.
1. I've started reporting batting order in some places. On the individual player pages, it appears in the third column of the daily history, just after the ^(starter) indicator. It's similarly shown in the daily point summary, and you can access it in daily stat csv extract by appending &bo=1 to the url. (example: http://dailybaseballdata.com/cgi-bin/getstats.pl?out=csv&bo=1).
2. In addition to batting order, I've added the game score to the daily point summary. Here's a sample URL: http://rotoguru1.com/cgi-bin/byday.pl?game=fd.
3. In the individual player pages, the projected starting pitcher (and his L/R indicator) are now shown for the current day. Here is a sample page for Troy Tulowitzki. Notice that batting order sequence for each game appears in the 3rd column (immediately below the "Daily Results" separator), and the opposing starter is shown for the current day (hover over the L/R indicator to see the name and game details).
4. An alternate CSV file format is now provided for the Batter vs Pitcher report. The alternate version eliminates all quote signs (") and replaces all commas in names with semicolons. While Excel can easily accommodate the original format, the alternate form may be useful for other means of access, as commas will be used exclusively as data delimiters. Links for both CSV formats appear just above the body of the report.
All of these enhancements were made in response to suggestions from users. While not all requests can be implemented, I'll at least consider all ideas. Suggestions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
