Fictional Rosters have made me love The Show again!!

This year I have struggled mightily with finding a Franchise and sticking with it. I have played 179 games of The Show and have deleted every one of the dozens of franchises that I have started.

Sometimes it was roster issues, the SDS rosters this year have been horrible and have plagued even the best of user created rosters. Other times I just didn't like the team I had picked. Somehow I always came up with a reason to re-start and try something else.

Then on a whim I downloaded Bacons Fictional Roster.

OMG!!!

Do you know how wonderfully overwhelming, liberating and joyful it is to have absolutley NO IDEA who anybody in the entire freaking organization is?!?!?

I mean really, you know NOTHING. Every single pitch, at bat, fielding opportunity, is an unknown. Not only don't you know the players on your team, you don't know who anybody is. Who is the best team? No Clue. Is this guy I am getting ready to pitch to with 2 on and a tie game the one with the ability to take me yard no matter what I throw? No idea.

I am 2 weeks in to Spring Training and I swear every single position is up for grabs. This has been the most fun I have had with this game in years. This has been the spark I needed to rekindle my love for this game.

For those of you that feel things are stale or you cant settle in, you really should give these rosters I try. I am not sure I will ever play a "Real" franchise ever again. This is just amazing.

Thank you Bacon. Appreciate you in ways you just dont understand.

I like this! Did you do a fantasy draft with the rosters? Thinking of doing this myself.

Yes I did. But I did not pick any players myself. I just let it randomize everything even more.

Dang dude! I really appreciate this shoutout Bullit!

My fictional roster has been a project I've been working on since October 2016, it since has become my defining work and I do it just for people to say how much they enjoy the game again.

Fictional is the way to go man. I used a fictional set for the first time this year and I won't look back. I think the game plays better with fictional sets. Bacon definitely did a hell of a job with his set no doubt.

Re: Fictional Rosters have made me love The Show again!!

I am going to start a fictional Oakland Franchise with Bacon's roster. What I love too is how retro 80's he made a lot of the players look.

It is a true gem of a roster.

Do you play these with contracts? If so, do they already have contracts in place?
