    Thanks for bringing this up, I commented about this several seasons ago and was happy to look at the lists of all time greats in this league. If you havent done so and youve been around a while, like spoon, sam, rob, ect. take a look at the list you might dee some of your favorite player of yesterday.

    But also I marveled at the fact that the current crop of players is so heavy on the all time lists, weve developed some great players in KBL, I was surprised to see Tiago Hendrickson was retired, seems like yesterday he was a 20 something raking up hits every season.

    OKC grabs Kenneth Perry and it only took 1.4M over asking price. Although I dont have full scouting he looks to have a deadly combination of Power & Control with just enough SY to be a really tough starter. Fully developed and should be pretty good for the dragons for a few years to come.

    Patrick Tabor looks destined to be a DH but should instantly rise to the top of HR charts, It only took a little over a Mil O/A to nab him. He'll help the newly owned Detroit team get straightened out.

    Gerald June is the defensive specialist in the crop and will be a perennial GG for another new owner(Great Lakes), his combination of speed, range, glove, & arm will be amazing. I also wouldnt be surprised if he popped 20 HRs per season. He's a cornerstone type I love to have in LF. Not many challengers for this guy (scratching my head) and he went for asking price. Nice pick up Dave

    Mike Tai goes to RJ's new Flyers team, he seems to be the most coveted in the draft. He's a guy who should be at the top of the order, will get on base, hit for decent average, a bit of power will get to everything in CF even if he boots a few balls. Tai got a nice payday 3M+ O/A.

    Randy Murphy also went to OKC, he doesnt seem to have much of a bat and looks to be average to below in stopping the running game with his 60's AR but still recieved 700K O/A

    And Steven Colon's high DI wasnt enough to earn him a spot on a team as of yet, as a defensive liability might be hard for teams to shell out 1.5M
    Mid season report

    Murphy hasnt been awful at the plate but his play behind the plate is surprising to me, I didnt see much of an arm on him but he's thrown out nearly 50% of baserunners. Also error free ball.

    Perry has been pretty solid 7-4, 3.67 with 142Ks/only 30 BBs, 11/18 QSs

    Tabor is the beast we all expected, .282 / 30HRs/ 79RBI in 89 games

    June is what was expected, not doing much with the bat but error free 2+ RNG in LF w/ 2 assists

    Tai is having a fine season out of the 2/3 hole, .282 / .385 / 14 Hrs / 2+ RNG in CF although 2 E's

    Tabor currently sits a place ahead of Perry in the ROY discussion

    Tai is 6th in his conference

    It was a sunny day in Thunder Bay.
    The 19th day of an hot July, in the middle of a cool summer, 36 years old ACE Micheal Johnson, walks on the mound in the bottom of the 1st inning in his 421st start of his already stunning carreer.

    He walks the leadoff hitter, causing a loud cheering from all of the 49+ thousend fans.

    He run into some trouble when, with 2 outs, Williams hit a single to LF to put runners at the corners, but MJ, comes back with a devastating K with his fabulous splitter.

    In the top of the second, Modena lineup scored 2 runs with a Peeples bomb to give a little relax to MJ nerves.
    After another hit to start the bottom of the second inning, Johnson regained his command and control, he sets his fastball on the lower part of the plate, and proceeded to retire his next 13 batters, strucking out the side in the 4th.

    When Modena scored 8 runs in the top of the 8 to build a 10run cushion, the bullpen started to warm up, but MJ stared at his manager with fire in his eyes.
    He walked to the mound again in bottom 8, but, with 2 on and 1 out, he left an hanging changeup in the middle to young slugger Matthew Gray who sent that ball to the moon.

    After a visit on the mound, and some pats on his shoulders, Modena manager left the ball to MJ right hand.

    A long fly ball to the center, died in mark Keiser glove to put an end to the 8th inning.

    In the 9th, with over 100 pitches on his arm, MJ walked again to the mound.
    He struck out McAvoy and Howell with rising fastballs, then Mattos reached base with a bloop single to left.

    114 pitches, and only one more out to became the 1st 300 game winner in league history, Johnson faced hitter n. 9 Billie Beltram.

    97 mph fastball at the knees, to set the table. Strike 1.
    92 mph sinker, who falls on the ground 1 feet before the plate, but gained the Strike 2 call for a Beltram late check swing.
    96 mph rising fastball, Beltram looked at it, but no strike 3 call.

    On 1 and 2 count all of 49.052 fans were standing and cheering

    MJ refused the 1st signal from his longtime battery mate Wayne Hernandez, then checked the runners at 1st.
    Wind up, the perfection of a pitch mechanics, the ball jumped from his right hand, Beltram started his swing, but the ball stopped...that was one of the best change up ever seen...swing & miss...Strike 3 call. Hernandez jumped up from his crouched stance with the ball in the mitt.
    Johnson smiled and pumped his fist to the sky, with all of his teammates running to him.

    300 WINS! A goal no one reached before!

    A big hand shake with his manager and warm hug from his long time GM, the italian born Spoonman1981, who drafted him when he was 19.
    He was used to be under the lights, after a ROY, 8 CY Young award and a perfect game, but reaching this milestone, with a declining team behind him, was one of the best moment of his career.

    His SO count reached 3925 after 13 punch out, so, another milestone is near.
