By the way, none of this makes me feel any better about my 1985 Mets.

Poor dude died less than 2 years after winning that World Series. Anyway, to appreciate how stupendously miraculous Howser's 1985 achievement was (yes, even with Brett in peak form), just try replicating it in OOTP. It CAN'T be done. Especially in Challenge Mode. Like, if you can get this team to finish higher than third in AL West, you're a genius. Logic defies how this squad of truly terrible hitters, with a decent young rotation and a terrifyingly inconsistent bullpen, somehow overcame all the odds and won the freaking World Series. In OOTP, it's really super difficult to replicate. It's right up there with brain surgery, but at least brain surgery is possible. To take on the Dick Howser challenge is to admit you have a giant ago, and also to put it seriously at risk. You will wheel and deal and gnash your teeth and, most likely, give up. Dare you try it?
I'm gonna do this....I think OOTP will benefit from a lot of these what if scenarios, anyway I got into baseball at this time (I'm from UK) an was in my mid teens so this team I remember but I think the late 70s team was their peak.

You've piqued my curiosity. I'm gonna try this!
Baseball the way it was meant to be played...in the daytime while it snows.
