Turn back the clock--2017 edition

MLB can't realistically strip the Astros or Red Sox of their 17' or 18' championships...BUT I CAN!!!

I re-installed MLB 17 The Show, downloaded the full minors roster and started a franchise. Now I'm going to "continue" in MLB 18' (my favourite) and re-write history!

My lowly (at the time) Milwaukee Brewers are going to try and shock the World!

Who will be the 2017 champs??? Will the Astros players all end up on the DL from being repeatedly plunked? Will the reigning champion Cubs try and sneak "legend" Ernie Banks on to their roster as the replacement for Addison Russell??? Who knows!?! Anything is possible!

Re: Turn back the clock--2017 edition

I'm afraid if I rewind 2017 the Dodgers will win the WS. and that's less tolerable (in the Caulfield household) than the Houston Problems winning dirty.

Re: Turn back the clock--2017 edition

For an intriguing storyline I am doing something to a similar effect but quite different.

I will take my roster and start in 2019. I changed all the Astros players to one year deals. I will sim the 2019 season then at the end of the season I will do a few things:

1. Lower the overall and potential of all Astros players with MLB time by 20.

2. No player with MLB time can be resigned even if renewable or arbitration eligible. Most will be in the 60s and 70s with C or D potential anyways.

3. All prospects including those drafted in 2019 will have their potential lowered by 18.

4. Any player with no MLB service time can be resigned but most if not all will be C and D prospects due to number 3.

5. The first 2 picks from the 2020 and 2021 drafts will have their potential lowered by 25. This will essentially cancel our their long term impact and we can't actually take those picks away.

6. In the 19, 20, and 21 off-season the Astros can sign no player to a deal longer than 2 years and can not offer more than 8 million per season to any player. They can also not sign any player rated 81 or above before morale boosts.

Once the start of spring training in 2022 starts, all restrictions are lifted.

This will essentially completely reset them and force them to start over from scratch while lowering the effect of the players not resigned or released by the Astros across the league.

This is just something to do for fun and I will sim it all. In the end, it is just a delayed rebuild with forced tanking.
