  • The turn where you can rename came about soon after I started playing GPBB, and I made use of it quite extensively as I wanted the roster to match "real life". I didn't realise at the time that players have a proper history in GPBB (unlike GP football where players don't take their names with them when they are waived) and I think it was a mistake in hindsight to rename...

  • Brusdar Graterol! My future ace, keep an eye out for him! I find this http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2017/ http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2017/ is a good resource for naming unnamed FAs or draftees. [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • Hey Dan, Re: "more realistic 19-8" - Crikey that would be nosebleed territory for my Twins!

  • Coaching... obviously it reduces potential (boo) and increases wages (double boo, hiss), so they are the cons, but the pros are that you get an improved player... I've seen comments around these 'ere parts that coaching isn't really considered too good a thing. Is that just because of the above, or are there other reasons? One obvious question is whether or not it is an efficient...

  • Yes you can have as many pitchers and hitters as you want, within reason. The rulebook, I think, states specific numbers, so you have to have enough to cover the base requirements. And, Marc, the 13 batters thing is the best 13 batters on each squad. Teams can obviously have more. I chose 13 as 9 starters plus 4 reserves since you can have up to 4 pinch hitters or platoon players...

  • In what turned out to be a pretty vain attempt to put a better spin on my lack of roster progress over my first seasons in MLB8 and MLB21 I did a number crunch based on the rosters that are reported in game turn 21. Please see the folder "SquadComparison" in the files area. The idea is that the top 10 pitchers and the top 13 batters are evaluated based purely on player level. No...
