You can hit start during the pre-game screens and completely edit your lineup and starting pitcher before the game begins.

But not for computer right?

The computer will give you the ace right?

- How does the CPU handle the trading of star players?

- How does the CPU handle free agent signings?

- Is there a GM aspect of the franchise mode where I can change ticket prices, transportation, overall budget, and is there any owner goals that I have to meet?

- Do players have personality traits that will effect either team chemistry or free agent signings?
- The franchise screens are actually pretty nicely done. You have "MLB.com" with a ton of headlines for what went on around the league.

- There's no outside the ballpark clips this year ala last year's pre-game show.

- I had a ton of trades offered to me during the season. Haven't really looked at other teams rosters after season one though.

- Free agent signing seems to be a lot better this year. Each player has ratings based on a few things and your team impacts his interest. i.e. a player might really want to play for a contender, hurting your chances to sign him.

- Nope, no "baseball mogul" like features to the franchise mode. GM is mostly about building your team, spending money. Budget seems to be based on how well you did and your teams average attendance.

- No team chemistry.

Re: MLB 2k9 Questions Thread ...

k bit more on free agency.

each player has "ambitions" in four different areas:

Financial Security
Team Prestige
Play for Winner
Playing Time

how your team matches to the players ambitions helps determine his interest in signing with your team.

the free agency period is 15 days long. you can put in offers on players, advance a day and see if there have been any other offers made, and make changes based on that. Seems to take two or three days with no activity for a player to sign a contract.

Is there a roster section for editing lineup and rotations?

can't you adjust it to what you want, then save it

The go to play now and play the team of which you changed

Can you do this?

Or I think you can play two players, then set both line ups and rotation . Start the game and then remover the 2nd player by turning the controller off

I think you can do this too.
