Free Agents and 1985

I was checking out SI.com when I came across an archived article from 1985 about free agency and baseball. I think the owners were accused of collusion after that but I loved this quote about Kirk Gibson. I believe this is what the dadvance stats guys were screaming about. Happy Thanksgiving. "Meanwhile, no other team professes a desire for Gibson. "An interesting name," says John Cox, assistant to Cub president Dallas Green. "He does possess talent. But when you break down his career, he's never been a league MVP, he's never been on an All-Star team, he's never hit 30 homers or won a batting title or Gold Glove."
