My point is that new owners can really F up a team with a rash of bad moves. Make one trade and you've lost 11 seasons of a stud and received an 83 OVR, 35 y/o pitcher with a 28 control. You can recover from that. But, if you compound the problem by signing 3 more 35 y/o to 5 year deals with your 6m training, you've created a nightmare that will last well over a real life year.
It's just better to know than to act. I have no idea what you did in your first season. But, maybe, you could have had a 90 win team with a division title in your 2nd/3rd season. And, in case you didn't realize it, you spoke in absolutes.
