In part 1 of the third basemen rankings, I tried out something I saw mentioned on Twitter last week. Now I don’t remember who asked about this feature nor who answered the inquiry to lead me to this wondrous tool so I can’t dole out proper credit, but I absolutely love this and it’s a must for baseball writers on the internet.
It’s called Player Linker from the good people at FanGraphs.com. You take your body of text and put into the box, hit Link Players Now! and BOOM, you’re linked!! You also have a few options including whether to open the player page in a new browser, whether to link the player’s name just once or throughout and something called THT Tag which I’m unclear about.
Big A+ from the folks at FanGraphs!!! And thanks to whomever I’m following on Twitter that pointed me in the direction of this remarkable tool.
