    NL Top Manager Trophy Goes to Elser
    Friday, November 8th, 1991: Randy Elser skippered the Atlanta Braves to a very successful year and has been acclaimed as the 1991 National Manager of the Year.

    He kept it short and sweet in the press conference as he accepted the award, "Thanks, but it wasn't just me out there this season."

    The Braves finished the regular season in second place in the National with a 93-69 record.

    #1 Skipper in AL: Kid of Boston

    Friday, November 8th, 1991: Boston Red Sox field manager The Kid has brought a winning attitude to the team and the city. His no-nonsense approach, work ethic and baseball experience has paved the way for success.

    This season the Red Sox parlayed his managerial skills and some talented ballplayers into a first place spot in the American standings. Boston finished the year with a 103-59 record.

    To everybody's delight Kid was voted the 1991 American Manager of the Year by the baseball writers.

    "Mr. Kid doesn't take any stuff. If you aren't doing your job, he's not afraid to call you on it," noted one of his ballplayers. "But the team wouldn't want to play for anyone else. He's tough, demanding, but he treats everyone fairly and doesn't play favorites. Nobody gets pampered on his ballclub."

    FYI it happened again with the money. Teams were once again capped at $3,370,189. Looking at the finance pages, the only team not capped was the Tigers, who were below the cap (in the negatives already). All the other teams had money taken away from them again. Just an FYI in case you haven't seen it.

    Don't those numbers not get updated until after the season flip?

    We shouldn't have to though, I changed it at the beginning of this season. I found an option for it somewhere. What I'm saying is wouldn't the new financials after the season flip reflect the correct amount? I hope so anyway, otherwise we've found another flaw in our file to go along with the mysterious inconsistent abilities of players to learn new positions.

    I'm looking in to the financial issue. I checked the cash setting and sure as hell it's back at what it originally was before I changed it under rules in league setup. It may just be that I changed it and for some reason Randy and I ended up with different copies of the file afterward. I know Randy had some file problems but I can't remember if it was before or after I made that change.
