There are a number of search options I'd love to see, but these are mostly obscure things based on the fact that I primarily play strange theme leagues. So while I'd love to see a search by player's height and weight, I realise that is a pipe dream. That said, there are a few of these things I think are a bit more realistic.
- Search by place of birth.
- Search by date of birth.
Both of these are totally doable through Baseball Reference, but can take some time, especially when you need some obscure low-salary guy to fill out the bench.
For the stat options, it's easy enough to set a low max to get the equivalent of a "not" option. But what if you need a player is NOT in the Hall of Fame? Was NOT a member of a certain franchise, or didn't play a certain league. Or even just NOT a catcher or NOt a shortstop. Again, I know this wouldn't come up all that often, but it also seems like a really simple addition.
And here is where someone points out to me the option to do this I've been missing all this time...
