I just looked up the name Kyle Blake. Heís one of the developers for The Show (Twitter is @KB_TP0).

So itís very possible Blake is indeed the created RTTS player.

Caulfield, you have also been thanked now in the update. I have grabbed the screens tied to the sleuthing, and they are in the story as well. You guys are amazing as always.

Caulfield's find was the "wham" scene that made me really believe this is actually a thing. You could still write off a name in a scorebug as some kind of strange oversight, but the Jimenez guy has his name AND likeness on that scoreboard (though I highly doubt it's a face scan or anything like that). That's too many "accidents" for me to just brush aside, even as cynical as I can be sometimes.

I still don't know how they'd go about getting the rights to even SOME of the minor league players, but I'm sure we'll hear about it in the coming days if we're not just chasing ghosts.

The trailer rewind on the 29th is now Must-See-Youtube for me.

I dont like being one to tease then take it back, but just to temper expectations till the Studio confirms, the Giants picked up Dany Jimenez last month in the Rule5 draft from Toronto so San Fran had to put him on their 40-man to keep him. I suppose his paperwork could have went through really fast but I doubt thats the case. the Orioles in December 2018 picked up Richie Martin in that years Rule5 draft but he didnt make the default roster, he was added in the first update. I'm inclined to lean the ĎĎfull rostersíí will be real MiLB'ers and doesn't necessarily mean expanded organisation rosters from 90 man to 200+.

That would be rather massive, considering OOTP has full minors in the game and the new agreement with MLB, I definitely see this as full MILB integration.

Actually I just found this, quite interesting.

It says it expired in 2019, but I'm guessing it hasn't been updated quite yet.

Iíve always been skeptical of how itíd work, but since OOTP was able to do it, itís plenty plausible that SDS should be able to the same way.

I think the reason we havenít seen them yet was 2 fold. 1, was the resources it would take to secure the deal didnít seem to be a priority to SDS. And 2, the resources and time it would take to create and maintain the rosters would be something theyíd have to be willing to do.

That said, with the growing emphasis on prospects and their relevance in the baseball world, coupled with the minor leagues currently battling for higher wages and trying to avoid contraction, it would be prudent of them to hammer out a deal to gain some financial resources and to position themselves a bit better and more visibly.
