    Incidentally, with the season now wrapped up I'll be working on updating the individual team pages, so if you get a chance and feel like it please post your batter/pitcher of the year. I'll make the picks for anyone who doesn't want to.

    For anyone wishing to plan way, way ahead, Steve Carlton ($14.00M, FA 83) will be on the trading block. I will post this again as soon as the Off-Season Thread is up.

    Two great seasons Jason and congrats to my division mates in bringing home the title.

    Enough of that... ... now on to 1983.

    I'll be back with the Maloy Boys and hoping to contend. In case I forget to do it later, I will name Rickey Henderson as my 70's franchise player beginning with the 1983 season. Buddy Bell and Dwight Evans become free agents this season so we'll have some holes to fill in the lineup. Bell is HTD eligible but Evans is not so decisions will need to be made there. Blyleven returns to the mound in 1983 in what looks to be a strong group of starters but the bullpen will need some shoring up.

    When does spring training start?

    A lot of people could be chosen for the MVP including Bo Diaz and Jim Dwyer but I will go with a split vote of Bob Stoddard/Joaquin Andujar who both won 2 games in the series with sub 2.00 ERAs.

    --A few landmark achievements this season. Most noteworthy, of course, was Fergie Jenkins becoming our first 300 game winner. Thats 37 ahead of Gaylord Perry (whi has no hope of getting there) and 38 ahead of former teammate Tom Seaver (who has a chance, although not one I'd bet on). Steve Carlton and Tommy John joined the 200 win club, Carlton with a career losing record and John dead even at 203-203. Goose Gossage and Rollie Fingers became the first 2 200 save men.
    --Reggie Jackson was the man making most of the career milestone news on the batting side. He became our 3rd 500 HR man, our 4th 1000 EXH man and our first 2,000 K man.

    --Its going to be full scale rebuilding for the Corsairs this year, with an eye to being competitve again in 1984 when it will be the Knights turn to rebuild. For next season hoping to put together a contender for Steve Rogers last good year. 27 wins to get to 200 and he will need most of them in 83 to make it. We do have some key players hitting free agency (and not looking to resign them), but we've got a solid core and will have some money to spend on the holes.

    I'll be returning with the Legends and the Lumberjaxx. This will be Fergie's swan song season. I hope we can put enough offense in the lineup to help him gain a few more wins. Lots of free agents for the Legends though and it'll be tough to decide who to keep by spending big bucks and who to let go. The Jaxx will be looking to improve on what was a rather miserable 1982 season.

    Congrats to the IRON on their first championship. Jason's waited a long time for this. The Iron have been very competitive almost every year and it's nice to see them gain their first championship. Great job Jason!
