So this would just be for stats? If not, I think it might cause more clutter b/c if we're talking about contracts, trade possibilities, crap talking, and anything else not having to do w/ game-by-game performances, it might throw the thread off more often than not. It might work, but people do seem to go OT a lot and that only seems to work out when there is the possibility of a new thread about the same player but on a different topic.
Just imagine Zimmerman's thread going OT for 3 or 4 pages and only being about Cal Ripken. That could really mess things up. It'd work if the mods want to split threads A LOT, but it might turn into full-time job.
I could be wrong, though.
