Name Cabin Mentions

Comment Breakdown

WTF is this?

For context, please read "In the Log Cabin with My Favorite Player," which was the inspiration for this project.

The data is collected by means of a python script that reads Reddit comments through the Reddit API. This script runs about once a week and searches the previous week's top few hundred Reddit posts within r/nyyankees for comments containing the word "cabin." The script then attempts to identify a player's name within the comment to determine who is the resident in the commentor's cabin. It's far from perfect; as you can see there are numerous false positives. This script considers the canonical cabin resident to be the player whose name is mentioned most frequently in comments that contain the word "cabin."
