Who was the team leader in HR and RBI for the 1983 season? What other season did he lead the team in these two categories?

(Has anyone heard from Phil? Do we need to put out an AP(uppets)B?)

Wasn't Moreland on that team? I think Buckner was too.

 

 

Has anyone checked the saw mills for Phill? Just don't send TWC.

If it wasn't Buckner, I'm going to guess the Penguin (Cey) and the other year would be... 79?

Maybe TWC has been setting up his "mangled hand" story all this time, just waiting for the opportune time to strike.  He'd know that Phil would struggle and probably get his hand caught in the saw.  He'd build Phil into a lovely chair that he has been planning for decades, the ultimate lasting insult to the puppet.

 

(BTW, Moreland and Buckner are wrong)

Ron Cey is the right answer.  79 is the wrong year.

ah shit he wasn't even with the team then.  HINT: It is a year you would not expect him to lead due to the performance of another player.  Looking at Cey's numbers (poor man's Santo) I'm surprised he didn't get more HOF consideration.  He's definitely a member of the Hall of Really Good.

Well, he wasn't with the Cubs for very long. 1985? With Mitten's hint isn't that the year Sandberg broke out?

It started to feel like it. I was making good money but was bored out of my mind.

Engineering/Archtitecure is one of the things I'd love to do as a career but at this point I'd have far too much math to catch up on (stopped at Alg I in HS) that I'd be 60 before I finished school.

Actually I don't use much math anymore. All of the CAD packages pretty much take care of all of it for you. I don't even keep a calculator on my desk anymore.
