  Win (baseball) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, a pitcher is credited with a win (or "W") when, in a game won by his team, he is the team's pitcher at the time that his team takes a lead that it does not relinquish for the remainder of the game.
If his team takes a lead it does not relinquish while that pitcher is in the game, the win is awarded to the relieving pitcher who, in the judgment of the scorer, pitched the most effectively.
Winning 25 or more games is now considered one of the highest marks of extreme success and excellence in the sport, on a par with winning 30 or more games a generation or two ago.

 Baseball statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Traditionally, statistics like batting average for batters (the number of hits divided by the number of at bats) and earned run average (approximately the number of runs given up by a pitcher per nine innings) have governed the statistical world of baseball.
However, the advent of sabermetrics brought an onslaught of new statistics that better gauge a player's performance and contributions to his team from year to year.
Comprehensive, historical baseball statistics were difficult for the average fan to access until 1951, when researcher Hy Turkin published "The Complete Encyclopedia of Baseball".

 Continuing League baseball statistics
Managers may choose any ballpark but it must be kept for at least three seasons; once selected, ballpark ratings are fixed for a given year (e.g., 1934 Shibe Park) and do not change unless the GM renovates or builds a new park (minimum of three seasons must pass before either occurs).
The number of players to be retained will be the same for all teams, although this number will vary from season to season (this will serve to maintain some parity in the league as all good players cannot be stockpiled or kept in the minors).
Bids may be made on as many or as few players as desired (although if you don't have a player at a given position and are forced to substitute a player not rated for that position, you will regret it as their fielding will cost you heavily.
