Welcome back, Mike.
Maybe Mike could sort through the wreckage that passes for my outfield ... and infield ... and catching corps ... well, you get the idea.

Welcome back, Mike!

Thanks again folks. Good to be back. I can't really claim much credit for the '95 championship, as I inherited a stacked team and just needed to sit back with a cigar and watch 'em win (and watch fans riot). The '96 title, though, I will happily own, as I faced a horrible financial situation with deadweight contracts that I needed to unload. So in time-honored GM fashion, I traded away the future to preserve the present, by giving away a first round pick in order to unload a contract of a useless SP. That deal gave me wiggle room under the cap to tweak the roster sufficiently in '96 to bring the Landis back.
