Re: Anyone play MLB 06: THE SHOW?


I have this game too.
I'm playing franchise mode right now. It took me six tries to get a team I really liked.

I play the games as manager 'cause I suck at the hitting part.
My batting order goes something like this:

Jose Reyes (3rd Draft Pick)
Joe Mauer (5th Pick)
Carlos Beltran (1st Pick)
Miguel Cabrera (Traded Brandon Inge (7th Pick) and my back up catcher Chris Snyder (16th Pick) for him. I had 3 teams give me trade offers for Snyder during the season and the fans were not pleased with Inge's performance.)
Dave Roberts (9th Pick)
Sean Casey (6th Pick)
Ryan Zimmerman (14th Pick)
Curtis Grandersen (10th Pick)

Starting pitchers:

Matt Morris (4th Pick)
Matt Cain (8th Pick)
Francisco Liriano (11th Pick)
Jeremey Bonderman (13th Pick)
Daniel Cabrera (12th Pick)

Joe Nathan (2nd Pick) closing

I set the bullpen as last on my priority list so I ending up getting a bunch of average youngsters.

Justin Verlander (15th Pick) is starting pitcher for my AAA grizzlies.

Record as of August 20th: 79 - 45

The dodgers are only 2 games back. emoticon

Average attendance at homes games thus far is ~34,000.

Even with good ticket sales I can't afford to give the players first class seats for road trips! They're ridin' the team bus.

Do the real Giants have a team jet?

Re: Anyone play MLB 06: THE SHOW?


hahaha Jason, my players were getting tired too much, so I bought them the Charter jet, the ultimate.

The problem now is:

I ended the season with a good profit. But now I have a BIG PAYROLL and I can't pay them, because my INCOME was set back to where it was before I started the game!
So now, I'm stuck with a negative balance, and I can't do anything. I can't even schedule a Bobble Head nigh for 1000 fans! haha

At least they still let me play with a BIIIIG HOLE in the Bank.
