MLB The Show 22 (PS5) - Pittsburgh Pirates Franchise

MLB the Show 22 Pittsburgh Pirates Franchise





Introduction

I have not played the Show much for a couple of years but for (sicne i made my Iron man with marlins on Show 19) but for whatever reason this year the game feels really good for me i feel like it is the first real next gen version.

So I started a franchise (the only single game mode to play for me) and after a lot of hesitation between Oakland and Pittsburgh i decided to take the later.

Unlike my previous story with Miami it wont be an iron man playing each snap of each game, my time being limited, it would not allow me to go through a proper roster build.
I am still going to play a significant number of games including in the first season.

I just wroite this for the record because i am havinga lot of fun playing it.


Franchise core foundations

Here is the setup and guidelines i follow when playing in Show 22:
  • Played games: I intend to play 1 game every 5 or 6 games and each time changing my starting pitcher. There will be exception sometimes to play in a park i love (especially when facing AL teams) or if i would have a pitcher or batter getting his first start.
  • Starting roster has been AntOrtiz roster. Only change I made was to upgrade Ke Bryan Hayes arm strength to 73 because low 50 did not look appropriate for a third base starter in majors and I dont want to move him to a different position than his real position.[/b].
  • Sliders are from Sim gaming network.Only change I made was to upgrade injury in played game to 9 and in simulation to 8 (I want injuries).
  • Hitting interface will be zone. After a long time using directional i am back to zone because i simply have more fun as such at the moment.
  • Pitching interface will be Pure Analog. I tried the new interface and it looks great but i dont have time for a learning curve. I want to enjoy the game now and play and not loose precisous time and motivation learing a new interface.
  • I will ignore the universal DH rule. I hate the fact that they added DH to NL. For me the game is much mroe interesting with a pitcher in the lineup. It increases the strategy game making bullpen and substitutions much more interesting. Not to mention that initially baseball does not have a DH.
  • I will (really) limit trades. I am not a big fan of trades to say the least but they are a big part of baseball obviously. I may consider real life trades if they happen but overall i will try to remain conservative with trades.
  • I will (really) keep FA somehow realistic. Pirates are a small market team. So the big Major league stars will not come here. I will try to remain realistic in my approach for FA accordingly.

    Others
    • I take care of all actions GM and Manager
    • No staff hiring outside off season
    • Manager contracts - On
    • Do not activate any sponsors




Why playing with Pirates ?

My favourite baseball team is Toronto but i prefer to play a team to build and i love the NL to avoid the DH garbage. I always wanted to play with Pirates i love their Park and uniforms and they are in NL so great for me. It is a roster i know a bit because i made them my team for most of OOTP 22.

Farm System Overview




Lots of very exciting prospects and it will be the core of the rebuilding process. Developping and making the best of what we have is the essence of a small market team like we are.

O'Neil Cruz (SS) and Roansy Contreras (RHP) made it to the day 1 Major league roster. boith had an ETA of 2022. The Show is not OOTP when it comes to service time so no better option for day 1 they earned their spots.

On top of the high ranked prospects there are a few folks who eitehr could get a second chance or bring a valuable depth or alternatives to play in the Major on the short to middle term.
