Yet another addition to the world's best web site

Starting this year, Baseball Reference will update the current year's stats each day.

It's about time. That's bugged me for such a long time, because I frequent them often.

Will they be updating the all-time leaders with it?

Ross said...

I just checked and they are updating the leaders daily, and they did other wonderful things as well. Instead of just the top 100 in leaders, it's the top 1000.

I had no idea that Mark Bellhorn was tied with Pat Borders and Dale Sveum (as well as others) for 992nd place all-time in home runs with 69.

Or that only 944 people have more home runs in their career than Barry Bonds had in one season.

Manny Ramirez, with 2 hits today, tied Alex Rodriguez for 214th place on the all-time hits list.

A-Rod is 1 spot behind Manny in home runs (5 back though). Of course, considering Manny is one of the great hitters of all time, what does this say for A-Rod since he's over 3 years younger.
