MLB The Show 17 Franchise Discussion Thread

Didn't see this thread for 17 yet so thought I'd get it started with less than 2 weeks to go.

Talk about anything including which team(s) you'll be running with, what you plan to do with them (compete/rebuild/wait and see), how you plan to play (play 162, sim half, etc.), any roster ideas like which lineups, rotations, bullpens you want to go with, and anything else!

Re: MLB The Show 17 Franchise Discussion Thread

I'll definitely wait until the OSFM rosters come out to start my Yankees franchise, and then quick manage spring training and play all 162. Hopefully I can get through year 1 quicker this year, since last year I was pretty much on par with the real season and have only made it halfway through year 2 as of today.

One idea I had was to do a second franchise, also Yankees, and do pretty much all sim, maybe some critical situations now, in order to get through multiple years quickly and get to really focus on turning NYY into WS champs again. That way I can take my time playing all 162 in my first franchise.

I pretty much have a good idea of my 25 man, I'm 99% set on Judge in RF everyday. However, I will be doing the same battle for the last 2 rotation spots between Mitchell, Severino, Cessa, and Green. Here's what I have set so far:

Gardner LF
Ellsbury CF
Sanchez C
Holliday DH
Bird 1B
Gregorius SS
Castro 2B
Headley 3B
Judge RF

Bench:
Romine C
Hicks OF
Carter 1B, LF, RF
Torreyes UT

Rotation:
Tanaka
Sabathia
Pineda

Bullpen:
Chapman CP
Betances 8th (SU)
Clippard 7th (SU)
Warren MRP
Shreve MRP
LRP-runner up of rotation battle

Note: I will manually put Tyler Austin on the DL to start the season

Re: MLB The Show 17 Franchise Discussion Thread

Yep definitely waiting for the OSFM Rosters and going to try and repeat with my Cubs. Wait repeat with the Cubs!!!! God I live saying that. I would Like to see more spring training stadiums make its way into the game and perhaps one day real minor league stadiums. Even if it's through DL content. I would love to play in Hank Aaron stadium with my hometown team or in the Pensacola Blue Wahoo's stadium. Off topic but if you want to see a beautiful minor league stadium that gives a great baseball atmosphere Pensacola Blue Wahoo Stadium is amazing.

Re: MLB The Show 17 Franchise Discussion Thread

Got my carryover Barves franchise but I will put it on the backburner and start up a second Atlanta Franchise when the 2nd or 3rd version of OSFM hits the vault (provided Ridin does that many this year).
Gonna also start up a quick season mode with the default rosters but I havent really narrowed it down past the Mariners White Sox Orioles or Rockies, might even be a couple more candidates in there too lol
As for the OSFM 17 Braves, I will probably keep Bartolo Colon all year but I dont know if I want RA Dickey all year. I wonder if he has any value as trade bait for a decent prospect, I dunno.
But I'm looking forward to pushing Ron Acuna thru the minors as quickly as possible. Dont know if he'll make it as a September call-up, but I'm gonna ride him hard as I can and hope he's ready, otherwise it's 2018 for him. Beyond that, anything goes, with the exception of Freddie Freeman, he aint goin' nowhere.

Question my friends....

Guys like Lindor, Syndergaard, and Baez that looked just awful last year. All three will have very improved faces in 17', but will they have their new faces in my carry over franchise?

Thanks!

As long as those guys aren't created Cap's by you then yes they will. They tag each guy with and ID.

Re: MLB The Show 17 Franchise Discussion Thread

Once OSFM is released I'll start mine. I like challenging rebuilds that take some time. Haven't chosen my team but I'm deciding between Baltimore, Colorado, Oakland, Angels and Arizona.

I never played ST before but with the quick manage I will be using it for sure. Should make it more fun.

MLB The Show 17 Franchise Discussion Thread

I just bought a PS4 yesterday from a family member for this game. I haven't had a PlayStation since the PS2 days. I'm looking forward to playing baseball again and using the BrewCrew.

I know they're not very good but thats my home team. And besides I'm sure I'll suck for a bit anyways.

I'm excited to see what franchise mode is like for this game. I'm also excited to experience it as a newbie.

I haven't played a baseball game since the last 2k version on the Xbox.
