I started a career using my favorite singer's name Collin Raye.

I made him older than the actual singer and gave him a wife and kids. His wife had 2 kids prior to the career. He had an 19 y/o son with excellent skills and a daughter. Over the course of the season's I've simmed he had 2 more daughters but when wife wouldn't have more kids (she was 51 years old when kid 4 arrieved, I had him divorce her.) I want him to have another son dang it....

As for the career here's the stats:

Year Team W L PCT GB Pos Note
2003 TBA 41 94 .304 49.5 5 Fired!
2004 BOS 99 63 .611 .0 1 Won WS!
2005 BOS 88 74 .543 .0 1 Won WS!
2006 BOS 92 70 .568 .0 1 Playoffs
2007 BOS 92 70 .568 5.0 2 Reached WS
2008 BOS 100 62 .617 .0 1 Playoffs
2009 BOS 99 63 .611 .0 1 Playoffs


As you can see, I was fired by Tampa Bay but then Boston hired me as their manager the next year. They had won the WS the previous season. I have done really well with 'em but had to get rid of Manny Ramirez when I signed on because he cost 17 mil a year and I needed money/players. I got rid of Pedro for the same reason 2 years later and Derek Lowe for the same reason in 2006. I have a solid team and here's the screen shot for the general mgr stuff....
