New Dropdown Search

We now have new search functionality, which will hopefully allow you to get to the player pages much faster than before.

Typing something in the search box will now display a drop-down of all the players you searched for, just as would have been displayed on the actual player search page. You are still able to hit enter and get to the old search page if you want.

One additional note is that when the search bar is empty, the drop down displays a list of the most popular Major League and Minor League players on FanGraphs.

      This has to be the only baseball website where the top 10 includes Daniel Murphy, Cliff Pennington, Brett Wallace, and Darin Ruf.

      I’m going to click Daniel Murphy’s name because quite frankly I do not even know what the hell team he plays for.

    can you put in an easter egg where if you search “Cistulli,” the top result either is Charlie Blackmon or Max Scherzer?

    Yes! Thanks! Previously, for example, I would type in Austin Jackson and it would ask if I meant Justin Jackson.
