For the indecisive franchise guy

What teams are you using and why? Maybe you can convince those of us that can't decide on what team to use.
I've flipped and flopped between Miami and the young pitching staff and prospects to the New York Mets and being able to sign and trade for whoever I want and now leaning Cleveland and possibly building around Ramirez, Bieber and a rebrand to the Cleveland baseball team with a new stadium and what not. I'm such a stickler for realism that it's almost a detriment to me.
What teams are you all using and what's the thought process or storyline/plan for your team?

For the indecisive franchise guy

Iím in the same boat with you for Cleveland. they are PERFECT to use but the realism aspect of that drags me away.

I went with the Mariners. I love the uniforms. Speed and defense literally everywhere. Top farm system. HUGE stadium. Even though itís a ďrebuildĒ you got story lines every where.

- can Evan white hit? Heís already a gold glover, can you develop him into a hitter?

-sell Paxton, Kyle Seager right away? Or are you going to add a few pieces and try to contend for a wild card? Because honestly it can go either way.

-Is JP Crawford your SS of the future?

-one thing I had to fix is they canít hit lefties worth crap, so I brought in Candelario from Detroit

- top prospects in the outfield, are you bringing them up ASAP or letting the develop a bit, maybe trade one?

I just love the team on paper for franchise reasons.

Re: For the indecisive franchise guy

I love baseball, but I'm a Braves fan. It would be wrong for me to use any other team. I don't care how good or bad they are, they're who I'm using. Having said that, if you use 30 team control you can play any game on the schedule for any team that you want.

Re: For the indecisive franchise guy

Mariners, Angels and Rangers would all be fun....EXCEPT I can't play with rival AL West teams as an A's fan. Stupid I know but can't beat up on Oakland for years. Can't play as Oakland wither because I get too attached to my players. Don't wanna move any of them. I was contemplating Mets with that pitching staff but they're basically ready to go, Miami just needs to wait as they have SO many prospects ready to go. Cleveland sounds fun but the whole Indians or not thing bugs me and idk if I'd make a rebrand or just continue as Cleveland and maybe just take the Indian logo off their chest and if I could remove the Indians logo in the stadium I'd be set for the realism part. Love the stadium and rather not build a new one.
Is keeping Bieber and Ramirez even a possibility for Cleveland? Maybe I move Ramirez as I believe they have a kid coming up soon, maybe move Ramirez for some 2021-22 ready prospects. Idk man lol. I overthink it.

As an Indians fan, sadly no...past Bieberís contract theyíll never keep Bieber being that the biggest contract theyíve ever gave out is 60 million. Bieber will command over 300 million. The good thing is Bieber is under contract for a little while

I used to hate the Braves back in the 90s when they dominated the National League. But now I kind of like them. It's weird but people can change. I am however a glutton for punishment as I am also a Rockies fan and that team (especially their ownership/management) is just horrible. You really need to be a diehard to play 162 games on a team that will lose 100+ games and well I am not so sure I am into subjecting myself to that much abuse. LOL

So yes if I was to start a new franchise in this game, the Braves are one of the few National League teams I might pick, plus there aren't that many American League teams that would draw me in either.

Re: For the indecisive franchise guy

I play manage mode exclusively and until now I had a relocated Pirates carry over franchise for several reasons.

I like the NL Central.

Pirates are a challenge because they have a low payroll which limits the ability to add talent and forces me to be creative and resourceful.

When I get my ps5 I intend to begin another Pirates relocated franchise and they are probably the worst roster to start with at this point in time. I like a challenge.

Re: For the indecisive franchise guy

Iím having trouble deciding between my favorite team the Yankees or rebuilding the pirates. I normally like rebuilding but Iíve only ever gotten far with bad teams on ncaa madden and fifa. With mlb I never get that far. So thatís whatís driving me towards the Yankees. But I know if I do the Yankees Iíll have that feeling that I wanna rebuild even though i know I prob wonít end up getting far.
