1. Who is crabman26 in real life?
Rich Rice, currently residing in beautiful Hood River, Oregon after moving here from Maryland this past summer. Huge Orioles and Ravens fan, and I guess now a Portland Trailblazer fan since thats the only real sports team we have here (I don't count Soccer). I work as a Facilities Manager at a community health center running renovations/ new construction/ facility upgrades.
2. Cubs or Indians? Why?
I guess I would pick the Cubs, Cleveland already won a championship recently in b-ball and I am tired of hearing about the lovable losers, so let them win one finally! I honestly dont care though who wins, Id be happy for the Indians as well.
3. Best and worst HBD moments?
Best - Taking over teams in World American Pastime and Kinsella that at the time never had a season over .500 and building both of them into World Series winners. Worst - HBD has now taken all the fun out of the draft, to the point I basically punt the draft now and that used to be my favorite part of this game. Also, my current team in World NCAA II seems to be in a forever purgatory that I can't fix...very embarrassing so far!
4. HBD strategem you tried that didn't work?
I tried a strategy of getting the high split ratings for hitters while ignoring Contact and BE for a brief period of time. The results were way too unpredictable from season to season with those players and when they were bad, they were bad.
