Mark Langston?

Did you pick these players via draft, salary cap or what?

I wouldn't expect Langston (an above average modern era pitcher) to be high on someone's want list, if you have 100+ years of history from which to pick.

It's Langston of 1984:

17-10
225 ip 188 hits
204 k 118 walks
1.36 whip

Plus, he starts every fourth day (important to my rotation).

We drafted with a salary cap, yes. $80 million.

Example: Babe Ruth, about $12 million.....

Langston was $4.3 mil

What's whip? It's a stat I have seen with increaing regularity in recent months but have been unable to figure out its meaning.

EDIT: Just a guess that just came to mind...is it walks plus hits per inning pitched?

The question is whether this will all by moot by next October when the Twins, who never seem to make huge moves, win the AL Central.
