Know Your Plumpy History: Bob Squad

by 9:28 AM 0 comments
The owners of Plumpy have become very consistent over the past few seasons, which is great.  Throughout the past 29 seasons, we have seen a lot of turnover, but five owners who are with us today were also here for Plumpy's inception 29 seasons ago. I thought it would be fun to do a little Q & A with these five owners, all of whom have graciously agreed to answer my questions.  I'll be releasing the posts one at a time over the next 7-10 days.  Thank you to the five owners who agreed to answer questions for this post!

Bob Squad, General Manager of the Boise Basturds.

1.) What do you do in real life?
The exciting fast paced life of a Project Manager (basically a goofy nerd)

2.) How did you learn about HBD?
I saw a forum post for HD coaches starting an HBD league.

3.) Who is your all time favorite ballplayer in Plumpy?

Randy Edwards

4.) What is your proudest moment in Plumpy?

Getting to the World Series in the first season, it was mostly luck (we really did not know what we were doing those first few seasons).

5.) Which player is your proudest draft pick?

I do not have one that I can remember. I am not your typical owner, I tend to depend on Free Agency as opposed to building thru the draft.

6.) What is the most devastating injury one of your players incurred?

Al Linebrink, Free-Agent Pitcher, just signed him, all sorts of potential, he goes down for the season during his first game.

7.) What is the most overrated rating on a player card?

The last 3 ratings on the top right. Has anyone really noticed a benefit to high numbers?

8.) What is the most underrated rating on a player card?
Not really sure

9.) Do you have a nemesis in the league (either another owner or a particular player?)

Not really, I am glad Edge Yount is in the AL.

10.) As one of five owners who was here on day 1 of the league, how do you think Plumpy could improve going forward?

I think we are on the right track, as long as you have good owners, things should be ok. In the end it is just a game.
