|Long Description||During spring training in 1972, southpaw pitcher Steve Carlton, coming off a 20-win season and embroiled in a contract dispute, was traded from the star-studded St. Louis Cardinals to the lowly, last- place Philadelphia Phillies. Surrounded by a squad decidedly lacking in talent, Carlton overcame insurmountable odds. For a Phillies team that won just 59 games, he posted 27 wins a record 46 percent and in so doing captured his first of four Cy Young Awards in a career that culminated in his induction into the Hall of Fame. In Drinking Coffee with a Fork, Steve Bucci and Dave Brown chronicle Carlton s extraordinary and improbable 72 season. Drawing on interviews with Carlton s teammates, coaches, opponents, and the writers who covered the team, as well as newspaper accounts and box scores of the games, Bucci and Brown recreate the phenomenal performance by the man called Lefty his early season duels with superstar pitchers Bob Gibson and Juan Marichal, his brilliant shutout against the Expos in a game marred by a bench-clearing brawl triggered by a retaliatory beanball thrown by Carlton, and a remarkable and exhilarating 15-game winning streak, achieved while the Phils rarely won on days that he didn t pitch. Throughout the book, the authors intersperse memorable conversations and anecdotes involving Carlton from the dugout, the locker room, and the team hotel which illuminate Lefty' s ccentricities, including his intense pregame preparation, his uncanny focus and concentration on the mound, and the sage and sometimes offbeat advice that he imparted to his fellow Phillies. After recounting Carlton s amazing season, Bucci and Brown rely on statistical analysis and opinions solicited from some of the country s foremost baseball experts including Bob Costas, Jayson Stark, and Tom Verducci to dissect this thought-provoking question: Is Carlton s 1972 season the greatest ever for a pitcher?|

The attributes are somewhat like fields. They are the individual data items that describe each product. Each product entry will have several attributes. There is no telling which attributes will be attached to each product but they all have the same basic format.
Here is an example of one attribute. When accessing the data feed API, you can get your data in XML or JSON format. Here it is displayed in XML format to make it a little easier to read through.
<attribute> <field_name>product</field_name> <group_name>Over View</group_name> <title>Product Name</title> <data_type>varchar</data_type> <data_type_description>short text</data_type_description> <has_linked_text>0</has_linked_text> <has_linked_extra>0</has_linked_extra> </attribute>
In the above example you will find these elements:
- field_name - The unique name used to access this attribute.
- group_name - The name of the data group this field belongs to.
- title - The label we place on the screen when displaying this attribute to users.
- data_type - The database data type we are using to store this attribute.
- data_type_description - More infomation about the data type.
- has_linked_text - Some numeric fields have a text representation. We store the numeric value but if there is linked text, we use a lookup table to display that text instead of the number to the user.
- has_linked_extra - Some numeric fields have an extra text value that goes along with the number. We use a lookup table to display that text in addition to the number.
Hopefully, this helps you understand the data attributes you find in the data feed API.
