So Webpages with Sound.

I cannot count the numbers of times I have heard them complained about on this very podcast. I have noticed in the last month or so that Fangraphs has now begun this same trend. This is particularly disruptive while trying to listen to this podcast in window. Please, if you can, seem about addressing this, at least for the window’s that have audio as a part of the content.

(While I am complaining, please also fix the “From Yahoo to Fangraphs” web script that was written a couple years ago and was 100% awesome, but no longer works) Ok, end of complaints. Thank you for another awesome podcast guys. I know its free content so maybe I should shut up, because you guys need to pay the bills, but I at least wanted to express my frustration. I shall understand if it is ignored. Thanks again.

It was glorious. Every player in yahoo (next to the yellow notes tab) had a little green fangraphs logo that would take you directly to that player’s fangraphs page from the pages in yahoo (team page, FA page, most added page, you name it). Made research so, so much easier/faster. But then yahoo changed the look of their website (I think it was start of last season) and it broke the script.

Also in the spirit of paying your bills, fixing the script could help increase total page views and help you sell/charge more for adds on the site. I know it certainly increased the number of players I looked up when all it took was the click of a button.
