Topic.

Mine would be the Free Agent market. Everything is actually pretty good, but there are only 2 times you can go into the market and that always bothers me. And I wish they made those Big Free Agents be more stingy on who they chose, they pick too quick.

I hate that theres only 10 seasons, and I hate that my own players can't become free agents

It should be that when you don't come with a deal with the player for contract renewals then they should become a free agent

Well, they can -- when spring training starts. But yes, I agree with you, it does seem unnatural.

Of course, guys with less than 6 years of service should not become free agents. You still own their rights.

O ya and my other problems are- they need better position player draft picks, there should be bullpens like the one in exhibition mode, free agency should run for a long time instead of just 2 days, they need alot more players like they did in 07, this year they were missing-colon,brad eldridge,kenny lofton, akinori otsuka,victor diaz,ryan langerhans,matthew brown,dallas mcpherson,garret jones,craig wilson,scott thorman,matt kata,josh phelps, andy phillips,sal fasano,kelly stinett,ricky ledee,josh rabe,,tony batista and doug mirabelli any many more, imagine how much better it would be to have all these players to fill out rosters and for minor league depth

Amen there, but players is all modes, not just season.

Good point, but with all these extra people you could probably make your own minor leauge team in season mode, One of my least favorite things about mlbpp was that it didnt have minor leauge teams

It has them, but it's dumbed down severly. I would love to see a full farm, or even just a real AAA team. I would play a ton of season if they did that.

anywhere from a whole farm to just a REAL AAA (full team, stats, etc.) would be fine in my book.

Yeah, it really gives you a disadvantage. Just because a team brigns more triple a players to the majors doesn't mean they have a better farm-system. It often means they've already out of it this season and they give their minor-leaguers a taste of the game. Guys like Austin Jackson aren't in the game, and that's the Yankees biggest prospect next to Hughes. Show him over guys who played 1 game in the Majors.

but if you think about it, with september call-ups the cpus will call up llike every minor leauger that can fit ont he roster and then it'll be boring cause once a player steps foot into the majors, they're no longer a rookie. so what im trying to say is that after like the 2 or 3rd year in season, there will be noone going after the rookie of the year or anything like that. So the creators REALLY needa make it so that rookies are always rookies until they have a certain amount of at-bats or innings etc,
