About This File
NOTE: THIS IS AN MLB ONLY ROSTER!
End of Season Update
Rosters primarily reflect players on the roster at the end of the season who have largely given the most service to the MLB squad to date. There are some exceptions when it comes to some marquee players, but I do take into consideration the total amount of playing time, especially with pitchers. However, some players get caught during a trade and I couldn't justify putting them up on the MLB roster over another player. If you do think that a certain player deserves to be on the MLB squad over another, you can simply move him within the game itself or one of the editors.
I made sure each team had 12 pitchers and 13 fielders.
Phase 1: These are primarily setting the rosters only. A few pitchers had to be created that I had missed previously and very few fielders' batting numbers were adjusted. I have NOT included some of the latest cyberface numbers, though you can easily correct this again with one of the editors or doing it directly in the attrib.dat file (as previously discussed in the forums).
**Batting adjustments for power and contact for all fielders completed.
**Starting pitching rotations adjusted to largely match RotoWorld.
**Secondary pitches velocity reduced by 3 mph (except for 2 seam FB).
**Recent cyberface ID changes integrated.
**Updated control attributes for all MLB pitchers based on last 3 year WHIP ratings
**Updated batting contact/power ratings for pitchers with 100+ PA over past 5 years.
**Pitch speeds adjusted (off speed pitches, especially change-ups and curves do not translate from MVPedit properly)
**Pat Neshek moved up to the Rockies bullpen.
If you notice any correction needs, please PM me. However, please do not PM me about minor league players.

What's New in Version 2.0.0 See changelog
**All Hot/Cold zones updated incorporating last 2 seasons (per ESPN's site)

(Note: I intended to update catchers' throwing abilities, but it didn't get into this update; I'll probably update prior to start of 2018)
