I will almost surely twist the guys Lemon managed, but I need to sort out a roster
4/23/2013 8:04 AM
If you twist his managing career, could I use any of his player's best season or best season under that manager?
4/23/2013 10:38 AM (edited)
That is correct, mervis7.
4/23/2013 11:20 AM

Well, I see why he was available.....I thought he played in 96 which would have made all the difference.....gonna have to pick another..
4/25/2013 9:59 PM
Sorry HeyHey, saw that Alston was a player, but just noticed (thanks to gyrene) that he does not have an eligible SIM season. Nice catch, gyrene.

@crackatoeha - Ok.
