all the talk about greinke's curveball got me thinking about the team i have back at school. me and my roommates have a "room team" where we alternate innings. we play regular rosters with the fair tradesand budget and all that stuff. here is our team...

2nd year twins dynasty
2b-rivas(he's bad on the game, sux real life???)
ss-uribe(see rivas)


lrp-vargas, ankiel
mrp-street, jairo garcia, made up lefty

the rotation is my favorite. peavy is sick. this game has killed my gpa. anyone else got a all-star team similar to mine?

sorry, didnt really know where to put it. hoping this would be a big thread bc i think it is interesting to see other peoples teams so i figured it would be moved in this forum anyways. but if a moderator wanted to move it thats cool.

For a bit of a challenge, I played owner mode and had a fantasy draft. The twist is I drafted the worst players, ditched the 2005 season and started from scratch in 2006. Here's my squad at the start of 2006:

C: Kelly Stinnet
1B: John Mabry
2B: Orlando Hudson
SS: Brian Roberts
3B: Brandon Inge
LF: Jason Bay
CF: Dave Roberts
RF: Matt Holliday
DH: Chase Utley

vs Lefties:
C: Miguel Olivo
SS: Marco Scutaro
LF: Miguel Cairo (Bay moves to CF)
RF: Victor Diaz
DH: Chris Shelton

SP: Sean Burnett
SP: John Patterson
SP: Brett Myers
SP: Wes Obermueller
SP: Scot Shields

MR: Blaine Neal
MR: Vladimir Nunez
MR: Lance Cormier
MR: Frank Fransisco

SU: Cliff Politte

CL: Billy Koch

On paper, that's probably the worst team you've ever seen, but in the game it's actually not bad. I just simmed a couple of months, and I went 30-22 during that stretch. The offense is one of the best in the league (due to most players having a high OBP) and the pitching holds its own.

Mmmmm...I like high scoring games in MVP, so I drafted all my hitters before my pitchers...

C - Paul Lo Duca
1B - Mark Teixeira
2B - Alfonso Soriano
SS - Carlos Guillen
3B - Melvin Mora
LF - Pat Burrell
CF - Created myself :-b
RF - Mike Cameron
Bench - Marlon Anderson, Angel Berroa, Jose Molina, Eric Hinske, one more person I can't remember

SP - Loaiza, Doug Davis, Daniel Cabrera, Brett Myers (I think), forget the last one
RP - Uhh...Mike Wood, Blaine Neal, Justin Duchscherer, Matt Kinney, Ben Weber
SU - Rudy Seanez
CL - Billy Wagner

I love it...I play on the hardest difficulty....my last game was a come from behind win in the bottom of the 9th after Wagner blew the save in the top of the 9th ;-D

Just to qualify everything:

Are there fair trades? Are their budgets?

Anyway, I have the following line-up (Fantasy draft, I pick first):

CF: Sanchez (Ford against L)
2B: Uribe
1B: Pujols
RF: Nixon (Marrero Against L)
3B: Beltre
DH: Sheffield
C: Piernyszki (Greene against L)
SS: Guillen (Ginter against L)
LF: Lew Ford (Werth against L)

A.J. Burnet
B Webb
Denny Bautista

MR: Romero, Otsuka, Rincon

SU: Mantei

CL: Wagner

Rotation is my weak point, but I created myself as an SP and I have some wicked stuff ;-)

Postby This is the year » Wed Jun 15, 2005 10:34 am

I'm playing every game of this year with the Red Sox in Dynasty mode, I just got up to date in the real season last night. Thus far I've traded for Durham (great in the game) to be my starter at second, and last night I pulled off a trade of Millar and minor leaguers for Aubrey Huff. Tonight I'm going to get rid of the Fat Man and see if I can get Halladay

Man, that game is fun. What settings do people play on? I've found that I can rarely hit for power on All Star (what I play the season on), but I'm a pretty good gap/contact hitter. Pitching is way too easy though - I must have 10 CGSO, and Arroyo's looking like the early season AL cy young (2.05 ERA, 1 perfect game, 8 wins). Anybody have any hitting tips? I usually play with pitch cursor off, vibration off, hitter's eye on, strike zone and hot and cold zones off, throw meter off.

Edit: fair trades and budgets ON!
