14. You're fairly outspoken as a Joey Belle owner. Why?
I am outspoken in real life as well. I have gotten more outspoken here partly because I feel that I should as the commish as well.

I think it's important that people feel free to express opinions in a respectful manner.

pitching and up the middle defense surrounded by very good, quality hitting

i wish that they would tweak the ditr's more. there still isn't much improvement in most of those players and i've still never had a ditr who became a major league player

do whatever blanch13 was doing. he was a great commish
