I did pirates in 19 they were pretty fun I did a complete rebuild from day 1. Gutted the entire team and started wash ups and Mexican leaguers as my MLB team, lowest salary team in MLB.

Full universe so you get earlier start date that helped. Got lots of prospects and had money to gain assets like an NBA team.

I had no problem trading for high priced free agents with 1 year left then trading them an absorbing 100% salary. Those win it now teams go crazy for trade them when they don't have to pay 20 million. Again more prospects.

I will attempt to get the Tigers righted again. Will do a fire sale to dump Zimmerman and thankfully Martinez retired and Caberra's contract hopes he would eventually wave the no trade clause.( I have seen a few wave the clause in the game) and build a team.

I had a ton of fun in 19 doing two separate rebuilds of the Tigers. Both GM only, but in one save I didn't allow myself any trades of FA signings so it was all about drafting and smart extensions.

This year I am feeling an expansion team. Hoping to have a lot of fun. I'd love to run my home team, Cleveland, but I think they're too good for me to have fun with.

I do weird things.
-First, I only play as an NL team. I like the extra strategy of the pitcher hitting.
-Second, I realized in OOTP19 that the reason I don't watch MLB games anymore.....all K's and HR's and shifts and Tommy John surgeries.....are rolling over into my OOTP experience.
-So......I use current rosters, but I alter the league totals for HR, Hits, Ks and starters IP to about where it was 20 years ago.
-The thing I didn't mess with last year....changing defensive tendencies to take the shift out. I think it's easy....just forgot about it.
-I then do 1 of 2 things. 1. Sim 5 years, find out which NL team had the worst overall record and start with them. Or....do an expansion. but, if I do this (unless they fixed it), I do it in steps. I protect 15 per team, do 1 round, manually choose 1 per team. then re-start, trade the guy I selected to the expansion team, protect 18, draft 1 more round. repeat. I find I have to do the protect lists myself too
-Then, I do some random bull**** to fill my minor leagues. basically moving a little talent from each team to the 2 expansion teams to make their systems a little below average.
-Then, trading on hard / favor prospects. I'm allowed 1 trade, 1 waiver pickup and 1 FA per month (unless the AI offers me a trade directly). Trades should either be right off the shop player, or 2 for 2 at most (I'll do a 3 for 3 sometimes).
-Every year, I have to be bottom 5 in payroll.

Mets.

Step 1) undo the Cano trade. Use commissioner mode if necessary

I play the only realistic way. Fictional.

I'll create Two leagues each with four four-team divisions. Play a weighted schedule without the abomination that is interleague play. No wildcards as you have four division winners at the end. Two rounds of Playoffs and a head to head World series of League Champions.

Like the good old days, except with four divisions vs. two.

Being a long time PC baseball fan, reviewer and tester, I've learned that once you insert your input into a season, it all becomes fictional anyway. So why not just play with fictional players from the start and abandon all illusion that you're simulating anything.

My plan is to go with the first team that will hire me and ride it out as long as I can or latch on with a minor league club. My other option is I think I might carry over my current ootp 19 save and then add in the new (to ootp) European leagues by hand during the offseason to avoid duplicating players.

Wow, seems there a number of Orioles fans here.

Well, as always, I will be managing the Orioles! This will be an interesting year to start the rebuild to say the least.

As a “technical Note”, I will be waiting till the patch that follows Opening Day to begin my universe; that way, all of the teams have some confirmation as to their Opening Day rosters, as well as some fixes following the open beta. While I wait, I will give Perfect Team a try. Anyway, this year should be a really interesting starting-point for the Orioles.

I play out all of my games (at bat) and my settings will be the standard out-of-the box settings, with these following notes / changes:

*20 to 80 ratings scale (what the scouts use)

*No stars (this has been great; highly recommend playing without the stars)

*Trade AI: Most difficult/favor prospects

*3 of the “major” baseball nation leagues: NPB, KBO and Mexico (LMB).

*Change the names of major awards to the Real-life names.

For me, same as always...start with the 1901 Giants...but this year, I am thinking of doing something a little different as well. Perhaps the 1939 Boston Red Sox too.

They have a stacked farm system though. Literally their entire infield and catcher are great prospects. With 3 of them in the top 100 and a pitcher for 4 total.

vlad, bo, jensen biggio not in top 100 overall but a top 10 second baseman. their 1st last year groshans rates high too. rowdy tellez did above avg at AAA last year at 1B.

pearson their pitcher is a top 100 prospect. Sean Reid-Foley another solid pitching prospect.

So hopefully your rebuild shouldn't be long if some of them pan out.

Please share? Is it a closer and right fielder?
