[Note: While I continue to agree that owner goals are arbitrary and in some cases make no sense with regards to a GM’s desires for the team, the more I looked into removing owner goals, the more it appeared to not have the desired impact that some felt would happen. Let me spend some more time this off-season with this one before we do anything with it.]
