Thread: When releasing a long time member of the team.

    When releasing a long time member of the team.

    Since I am getting ready to do so. SP in his late-30s, and been with me close to a decade and a half. And a key member of the team's only championship under me.


    I always feel a little bad doing this. Has to be done. But, I do develop sentimentality to certain players. So, how sentimental are other owners?

    This whole thing is "pretend". For me, they are all players and I totally get attached. I always want the magic to last.

    I have one guy who has spent his entire career on my roster, leads my team in hits, is a .300 career guy, but his skills are seriously declining in his mid-thirties. I still can't pull him out of the everyday line-up. It's weird, but I feel like I'd be robbing the fans that don't exist a chance to watch a guy who is essentially just code from adding to his legacy even though he's well off his career pace.
