FanManager 5
  • Ned Jennings is a non-DH, AIM dead ball era manager (1901-1919), when "small ball" strategies dominated. Jennings is the first micromanager created exclusively for turn-of-the-century replays. He handles pitching staffs with 19th century "ironmen" starters as well as those using a quicker hook. Consistent with the period, he will summon a quality starter in critical save situations. Yet he always knows how to leave an available starter for the next game. Jennings also understands stealing chances, even without CS stats for those years. He uses the information he has—SSN—for realistic steal strategies.
  • Felipe Hernandez is a DH/non-DH, AIM interleague play and draft team manager for the 1990s. With Felipe you might sneak a peak at an Atlanta versus Baltimore World Championship. Or you can put him to work in your modern draft league. (Note: he does rank closers by saves, not grade, and is conservative making blowout substitutions.) Hernandez uses a quick hook on pitchers, favors platoon advantages, and employs his pen in the modern way to set up this closer. Offensively, he is aggressive early with the running game, especially with weak-throwing catchers, while later in games he plays for the big inning. He favors "itchy" subs.
  • Red Martin is a DH/non-DH, AIM manager for the leisure-suit 1970s, created to closely mimic the managerial tendencies of that era, including aggressive running and the use of star relief pitchers early in save situations. Martin always, except in emergencies, saves one pitcher who can start, so for the most part, you do not need to bench starting pitchers. He has a restrained blowout substitution strategy that entails PHing, PRing or replacing defensively key players in lopsided games. Quality players who are resting remain on the bench unless emergencies require their insertion.
  • Luke Southworth is a non-DH, AIM season-specific manager for 1944. Southworth manages teams that had to scramble to fill lineups as military commitments depleted their rosters. With numerous regular players in the service, teams were forced to use what few quality players remained in unfamiliar but important roles. Southworth recognizes this problem. For example, he'll often use pitchers offensively, or in emergency situations he'll pitch position players to help teams through consecutive double-headers. With thin benches, he stays with his starting eight, subbing only in emergencies. For teams that had high bullpen usage during the season, like Cleveland or the New York Seniors, Southworth uses a quicker hook. On the other hand, Southworth stays with starters late in games when handling Cincinnati or the pennant-winning St. Louis teams, which were more reluctant to pull the pitcher. If you're reliving 1944, this manager will give you a truly realistic replay.
  • Billy McCarthey is a non-DH, AIM season-specific manager for the exciting 1943 season. Like '44 skipper Luke Southworth, McCarthey is often forced to use quality athletes in unfamiliar positions. For instance, you'll see McCarthey use Philadelphia's star pitcher as the team's first pinch hitter. Similarly, McCarthey recognizes the need to use quality star pitchers in relief, especially when the game is on the line. He'll be willing to use Detroit's top starters late in save situations or in close games versus contenders. With McCarthey focused on the difficulties of lineup management, you be able to concentrate on how to overcome the loss of star players or on guiding the pitching-rich St. Louis team to the pennant. McCarthey was "born" to manage your 1943 replay.

  • These managers are designed for modern era play and are particulary adapt for draft league (but they can handle replays as well). In addition, one of the managers, Tony Anderson, is designed for the post season with a win at all costs type of mentality. This set includes the four Buck Miller series managers, the two Butch Kelly managers, Tony Anderson and Felipe Hernandez. All of these managers are A.I.M. managers and this is a great assortment for the modern era (1980s and up). Volume 6R contains all the revised versions of the managers!)
