How Ya Like THESE Apples?

Time for the mid-season stats, where you can basically double your pleasure, double your fun, and imagine George Foster hitting 68 homers and driving in 198 runs.  You can also follow the rising and swooning of your favorite team on my special pennant race graphs for the American and National Leagues.

Finally, for a deeper paragraph on each club, check out my new Funk Zone column on the Strat-O-Matic Web site. Go Cubbies!
