  1. milb also says Jim Morrison was named top Manager in FSL.

  2. Yes he was. I just finished the Stone Crabs award winners. Great to have such talented managers in the system.

  3. Elliot has to be nice trade bait. He is a great guy and a good player. There's gotta be a team out there that could use him.
