Q & A with the Owners (pville)
16th in a series (by 69cubs)
We hit the half way mark of the Q & A's!
Next up is another of our original owners who has been with us since Day 1 and has kept his team in the same city (and name) since then also. There are some loyal fans down in Texas supporting this team as they have a history of struggling in the standings. But, with that support and the determination of the owner to give Texas a team, this franchise has stayed intact! This season, the Texas Steers have an opportunity to have or come close to their best record in franchise history.
Owner "pville" has a Mathewson World record of 1386-2178 (.389). While overall, including the 22 completed Mathewson, pville has completed 32 seasons in HBD with an overall record of 2025-3159 (.391) with one division title (lost in a AL championship series) and a 7-5 playoff record.

Significance of team name and/or username:
The user name I use is pville which is a shortened version of my high school Pflugerville located just north of Austin, Texas.

Seattle. No matter the record of either team, we can't win.

None. I'm still trying to figure this game out.
Thank You pville! The Texas Rangers took awhile to get on the right track and now look at them!
