MLB News: The Offseason Begins
Tuesday, October 21st , 1958
The MLB champions have been crowned, the confetti swept up, and now begins another offseason in baseball's cycle of life. For fans, the days drag by, with only news of hirings and firings breaking up the monotony. But for general managers, there's plenty of work to do. The offseason is when a top-notch GM really earns his money. It is their time to analyze the past season, to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their clubs and to make plans for the next season. Future champions will lay much of the groundwork for their success during the next few months.

You may now vote for the league award winners, the option is available in the league menu.
