The Texas Rangers

Back to my roots.

In OOTP18, I began this and had two seasons played out before the laptop it was on became unusable. My old game file is unrecoverable but I want to do this again. Was the most fun I had with OOTP.

I will start in 1972 focusing on the Texas Rangers but will also keep up with all of Major League Baseball.

If anyone wants, feel free to post in replies cheering for your own team during this little excursion.

Default settings. No minor leagues. Amateur Draft in December. No historical lineups or transactions. Just consider it an alternate reality to the real life baseball we witnessed.

I'm up for this. But, man, you sure picked a bad time to ride with the Strangers.

I just read Seasons In Hell, which covers the Rangers from 1972 to 1975, but it mostly focuses on 1973 and 74.

I'm here to give you encouragement. You're gonna need it.

Blowing the 7-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth in Oakland was so crushing.

Not as devastating as what is happening in Cincinnati. 0-10? How are the Reds 0-10?

Some great starts in Houston and Kansas City though. As well as San Francisco and St Louis.

As for David Clyde, pretty good chance he doesn't even wind up on the Rangers in this replay.
