1983 All Star Game

Victor Cruz was named All Star Game MVP.
The National League made it four All Star Game victories in a row tonight, beating the AL 6-5 in a game that went down to the wire. The two squads combined for eleven walks in the game which proved costly, especially for the AL.

The NL scored four runs in the top of the second inning, all charged to AL starter Floyd Bannister. Dale Murphy led the inning off with a single to left. Bannister then walked Pedro Guerrero and Ted Simmons to load the bases. A wild pitch by Bannister plated Murphy and moved the runners up to second and third. A Bill Doran ground out scored Guerrero. Next up was Rafael Ramirez who tripled, scoring Simmons. Dave Stieb was brought in to pitch and got a ground out from Tim Raines which scored Ramirez from third.

In the bottom of the second the AL got one run back. Joe Lefebvre tripled and Bobby Grich singled scoring Lefebvre.

In the bottom of the fifth, the AL would put a second run on the board. Lance Parrish drew a walk and the manager went to Rickey Henderson as a pinch runner. Henderson stole second base and scored on a single from Robin Yount.

In the bottom of the seventh, the AL scored three to take the lead 5-4. Rickey Henderson drew a walk off Dennis Rasmussen and stole his second base of the game. Carlton Fisk drew a walk as well putting runners on first and second. Pete Ladd was brought in to face Lloyd Moseby who doubled, scoring Henderson and moving Fisk to third. Up next was Robin Yount who drew a walk to load the bases. Nolan Ryan was brought in to relieve Ladd. Bob Horner lifted a deep fly ball which scored Fisk and moved Moseby to third. Willie Upshaw also hit a sac fly scoring his Blue Jay teammate Moseby to put the AL ahead.

The NL stormed back in the top of the eighth however. Larry Andersen walked the bases loaded (Keith Moreland, Andre Dawson, and Mike Schmidt). Bob Stanley came in to pitch, and gave up a single to Butch Wynegar scoring Moreland and moving everyone up a base. Tom Herr hit a fly ball deep enough to score Dawson putting the NL ahead 6-5.

Closer Victor Cruz was brought into the game in the bottom of the ninth and some drama ensued. Lloyd Moseby led off the inning with a triple. With no one warm in the bullpen, Cruz then struck out Robin Yount. The manager stayed with Cruz, and Bob Horner and Willie Upshaw followed up with two popups, stranding Moseby at third.

Nolan Ryan ended up getting the win. Larry Andersen took the loss. The dramatic save by Cruz ended up winning him The All Star Game MVP award.

In quick draft, the only reason you might click on a player and not get them is if someone else was drafting same time and took him first.

The reason keeper auto leagues have 2 year max contract (which technically keeps them on your team 3 years, current plus two) is because it would be unfair for one person to draft certain player and keep them indefinitely. This allows them back in the pool after a few seasons. If you want real/longer contracts, you’ll eventually join custom leagues.
