Fantasy Draft vs. Franchise

Postby ensanimal » Thu Feb 12, 2004 3:12 pm

Just wanted to know, when you guys play baseball video games, do you use a franchise, or when available do you do the Fantasy Draft? MVP 2003 didn't have it, but I see MVP 2004 will. What do you guys play? If you do the draft, how does it differ from doing your real fantasy draft?

Just curious,

I play franchise. I don't like doing fantasy drafts. I would rather trade to improve my existing team.

I agree.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I like to go with the Real teams and trade for players I like. That way I know what players the teams have on them.

I do a franchise. The Mets' farm system is too good anyway, so no matter what we'll be awesome. :-B
