Several people have talked about writing books telling the season story. I have some stuff ready and wanted to see what ya'll thought about it. I have included the intro and some major character dialog.
The evil empire continues its reign of terror by destroying team after team, however, a young band of heroes led by JD Prospectwhisperer fight to restore freedom and hope to the Ranger nation.
Thad: “JD, if you get a corner infielder, make sure he bats right handed.”
JD: “Doesn’t look like we’ll have much of a choice, but I’ll try.”
JD: “Ryan, this backup infielder has a bad motivator, look.”
Greenberg: “Help me Texas oil-men, you’re my only hope.”
A Rod: “The ability to field a playoff team is insignificant next to the power of the Yankees.”
JD: "I've also been thinking about our agreement, and if these new prospects do workout, I want to sign an ace this season. "
Hicks: "This year we’ll be able to make enough in playoff tickets and you’ll be able to sign an ace next year."
JD: "But it’s a whole other year."
BMFF: “Where are you going?”
JD: “Looks like I’m going no where. I have to finish with the rosters”
Ryan: “Your fans wanted you to have it, but the budget wouldn’t allow it.”
JD: “What is it?”
Ryan: “A staff ace. It is the weapon of a World Series team. A more elegant pitcher, for a playoff game.”
Ryan: “For over a 3 year period the Rangers were the guardians of winning in the West. Before the dark times, before the Hicks.”
JD: “These are the same guys who were killing us last year.”
Ryan: “And this last ground ball, too far for a Young shortstop. Only an Elvis could make that pick and throw”
Ryan: “That’s no bug, that’s a MANTIS”
JD: “But why are they still standing for it?”
Hamilton: “They’re caught in the wave, its dragging them down. They aren’t killing this rally without a fight.”
Young: “Curse my diving body I wasn’t fast enough”
Greenberg: “If money is all that you love, then that’s what you’ll receive.”
I also plan on writing a sequel/prequel just about the courts, but only a small snippet of it so far.
Cuban: "I've just made a deal that will keep the courts out of here for good."
