MLB 10 The Show

Season - 162 Games, No Sims

Roster - Knight's Total Minors

Sliders - JoeRudi26's

Difficulty - Veteran

Settings

TBA

Spring Training

TBA

Welcome all to my 2010 Oakland A's Franchise. I plan to keep my Major League roster as realistic as possible, this means that i will only complete transactions that the real A's team complete.

To deal with players that are injured to start the season, i will place them in AA or A ball until their return to action.

Ideally i want to follow the real schedule but i may get a little ahead with my games to compensate for days that i may not be able to play.

Some of you guys may have seen my MVP dynasty and i am planning on surpassing the work i have done there with this Franchise.

I will add various different presentations as the season goes along, i plan on presenting:

Pitcher Match Ups

Line Up Cards

Stats & Standings

Interviews

Transactions - All A's transactions & other major transactions

*Schedule will be posted soon*

*Rosters/Line Ups/Spring Training will be posted once Knight's rosters are available*

Thanks apridham.

I will post a depth chart a bit later on also Knight has confirmed that his roster set will not be released until tomorrow so no chance of an early game and i will start as the A's start in real life.

Hope you get some time to relax this evening and get your hands on the PS3 :rolleyes: Thanks man, it went from me choosing a team to getting started pretty quick. I had it down to D'Backs, Marlins, A's and Padres. Then all of a sudden i had a feeling that i had to go with the A's after wanting to go for an NL team all morning. :facepalm:

I will try and make you proud of your beloved A's :friends:

Thanks :) i'm hoping for a 5-5 record after my first 10 but who knows what will happen :pardon:

Despite me wanting to keep the rosters as realistic as possible, i am not going to influence what team claims my players if they are put on waivers. I will put that player on waivers just like the real A's team does but they could be claimed by a completely different team on the game compared to real life.

I will force the trades and make them identical but waiver claims will be completely out of my hands.

I am on focused on keeping my roster realistic and i will let the CPU do what ever they want with the remaining 29 teams.

Great, I'm waiting on them too so I can start my A's dynasty (on the side).  Hopefully it's today.

When you get started with your A's Franchise, we should compare how our players are doing along the way.

Feel free to post how your players and team are doing here any time you want :friends:

I don't think i will be able to get today's game in because Knight's roster probably won't be released until later tonight and because of the 5 hour time difference, it will be a lot later here when they are finally released.

If that is the case, i will just play today's scheduled game tomorrow morning before i play game 2.

Thanks Johnny, i am unsure if i am going to get the first two games in today because Knight's roster set hasn't been released yet because of some personal problems on his part and ridin is ironing out some minor issues meaning they weren't released last night.

On the good side, it gives me a bit more time to work on things and the rosters will be ready when they are ready and i will start then.

Nice win, rick, and good job on keeping Griffey contained.   :spiteful:  I used the same strategy on Pujols.  Walk him or hit him, just don't give him anything to hit.  Great job on the presentation, it's obvious you've come a long way in PS since the "old days".  Great work!

I know it's hard to post any type of boxscore after the games, it takes about 8 pics for each team, and then you have to put them all together, but one thing I found myself looking for was the line score.  I was wondering what innings you and your opponent scored.  Not a big deal really, I just sort of found myself looking for it and didn't see it.

Anyway, good luck next game!

I don't think i could intentionally hit Pujols, i admire him as a player too much :rolleyes: It would have to be the intentional walk every at bat :)

Yeah, i feel like i can put better presentations together but nowhere near the standard i want them to be but i will keep working.

I knew i forgot something, i was in a rush to post it because i was being nagged at to get ready to go out. I will just put it up now :)

I will start putting box-scores up once i have caught up with all the games, i have games 1 & 2 played, need to play 3 and tonight's game.

Sorry about the picture quality of the box score, i am using a less than impressive tv at the minute <_<

I thought they had me to be honest, they had Ichiro on second with 2 outs with Figgins up. I thought for certain i was going to lose the lead but i managed to get him to ground out to 3rd. :yahoo: Those type of games are bad for my health :facepalm:

Awesome.  Anytime Ichiro gets on, and he's not on your team, it's bad for your health.  Just for your info, and if you're using my sliders, I made a couple of adjustments last night that seemed to work very well after only one game.  My hit/run totals were consistently pretty low, so I moved the Contact slider up to 1, and the Fielder Reaction Time down 1.  I went from 7-8 hits a game to 11-12, which may be a bit more realistic.  Granted, I've only played one game with the new adjustments, but the difference was obvious.

Anyway, just letting you know for future reference.

I´m going to set the Fielder Reaction down 1, but the contact just keep it cause works for me.......like i told you before your Sliders RULES!!!! :good:

Thanks, i made a few adjustments to the sliders before game 1 anyway because i was noticing that the fielders were reaching the ball a bit too quickly and i was able to strike out too many batters with sub par pitching so put the foul balls for CPU to full and put the power up a couple of clicks just to make it a bit harder :spiteful:

Just working on game 2 now.

Thanks, laroquece.  Adjusting the sliders are usually a 3 or 4 month project, and the fact that the sliders in this game work very well, I'm sure I'll be tweaking them for some time to come.

I agree, I noticed, more often than not, some very hard hit balls down the lines that probably should have been hits, but the 1st and 3rd basemen got to them pretty quickly.  I was beginning to wonder if the reaction time was too quick, or they were just somewhat out of position, merely too close to the lines.  I have no problem hitting the gaps in the infield, actually I'm getting good results.  Lots of hits between the 3rd baseman and shortstop, and same on the right side of the infield.  It's just the down the lines that I felt was a little unrealistic.

I'll see how this works out in the next few games.

 put the power up a couple of clicks just to make it a bit harder :spiteful:

I'm seeing plenty of power from both the User and the CPU, and I don't ever use the power swing button.  The Cubs hit me hard in game 4, so I'm not touching anything for a while.  At least not for them.  :)

I have got 2 home runs in 2 games which from this A's team is pretty good both not using the power swing but the CPU hasn't come close to clearing the wall yet so i thought i would see how they play with this adjustment. Watch me get completely annihilated in game 3 :rolleyes:

I don't know why the video is so small but i have been messing around with it to make it better quality. I will try to fix it now.

Tough loss, rick. Man, keeping Ichiro off the basepaths is crucial when playing Seattle.  I have plenty of experience trying to do just that, and it's near impossible.  The only other person that I can remember that caused so much chaos when he got on was Rickey Henderson.  There are a few in the game now, Reyes, Rollins, etc., but when Ichiro gets on it's almost automatic that he's going to come across the plate.

I have never really had problems tackling Reyes, Rollins, Hanley and some of the fast guys but Ichiro is just something else. I had to pick the A's where i will coming up against him 18 times a season :facepalm: Game 3 will be played shortly and that will be me up to date but i am going to have to think of a plan for Ichiro.
