4/19/2018, From the management: We have moved the Bullpen over to its new permanent server setup. It's a bit much to explain here, but I think it's working mostly. We have an issue where some requests are blocked due to too many images on a page. I'm working on fixing that issue today. Please let me know on User_talk:Admin if you see any issues. Thank you as always for your support.

". . . we had five outfielders during their career that were All-Stars. All four infielders were multiple All-Stars, one catcher that became an All-Star, plus seven pitchers that were or became All-Stars." - Ron Cey, talking about the 1981 team
Between games 53 and 68, the 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers tied a major league record, by alternating wins and losses for 16 games. (The 1974 Phillies were the only other team to do this.)
