I'm not one to normally make negative comments on another owner, but rangerup came into our league (Lets Play Two), took that 99 win team, traded its younger players for older players with long term contracts, made the team more of a win at all costs now version, and then bailed after he won the WS with the excuse he was tired of playing HBD. As I said to him then, and I'll say now, he's the poster boy for the type of owner we wish to never have again.
Anyone who values the idea of "Dynasty" in Hardball Dynasty should ignore any advice rangerup has to offer.
Plus 4 or however many.
I am the owner of the franchise rangerup was "one and done" on in Let's Play Two.
He had nothing to do with building that team. Litigator01, the previous owner for around eight seasons, built the team.
rangerup did contribute something--I have a 40 year old mopup pitcher that I'm paying 18m to. He'll probably be in AAA next season for the last year of his contract. Thanks, rangerup.
As Billpitt said, rangerup's only real contribution to this team was make it older. Yes, it's still a very good team this year, thanks to Litigator.
But starting next season or the one after that, there is going to be a helluva rebuilding job.
I'll stick around for it. rangerup, of course, took for tall timber.
