Trade offers, needs, wants are listed here if the individual General Managers so desire. This is an easy one-stop shopping spot to get that one more valuable addition to your team.
BON is shopping the heavy hitting Ernie Lombardi. He is one of the couple best hitting catchers in the game, and he's got a mean, heavy card. His normal 590+ PA's are 600+ this year, thanks to his being overused by the feisty Braves. The Braves are also looking to shuffle their starting pitching. Depending on the context, they will move any of Tom Seaver, Ron Guidry, and 1998 PiOY Runner-Up Ferguson Jenkins. HMA is also shopping a slick hitting catcher, by the name of Joe Torre. Smooth Joe has a tremendous history in the league and will be sure to enhance the attack of any team. NYA is trolling for a home run hitting outfielder. Possible bait includes Whitey Ford, among other creative packages. If you are looking to make a blockbuster deal, make sure that you float big players to the entire league before shipping them out-of-town. The bloc of five computer teams, in particular, can bring many intriguing trade ideas to the table. Contact: Dirk Knemeyer

CPU TEAMS: Milwaukee is making Jim Fregosi available. At 2e30 with a .748 OPS and over 600 PA's, he could bolster the shortstop position for a few teams, good enough to start over some of the guys in this league. Saint Louis (AL) has Red Schoendienst available. He used to be a starting shortstop for a World's Series team; today, he would make a fine, contact hitting middle infielder for an interested club. They also have extra left handed relief pitchers. These hurlers, good all-around pitchers, not just specialty guys, can even be had in quantity if a team is interested. *Two* of them have 15% OB vs. left or lower! These are great arms. Toronto is shopping Thurman Munson. Good bat, good glove, good pedigree catcher. They would like to upgrade their pitching rotation or perhaps somewhere around the diamond in a deal. They do not need to receive a catcher in return. Pittsburgh has Harry Stovey available. One of the premier non-home run, power hitting right handed outfielders, the Bucs would like to either move up somewhere else around the diamond or get a more stable (600 guy) outfielder to take Harry's spot. For Reference: *** Definition - An A/B pitcher can range from, on the high end, Walter Johnson (big innings, great spilts, definite A guy) to Eddie Cicotte on the low end (middle innings, low baserunners, high HR's, good card, solid B guy, one of the best 50 pitchers in the set). Point being, whether high end or low end, these guys are great.
