Yeah you can't get any points which kinda sucks.
It's making you resign because that's the rules.

You are the property of the team for 6 years.

Re: MLB Power Pros 2008 - MLB Life thread

I'm doing a My Life with Chipper Jones. I wanted to start it off right away and see how it handled players that are already in position to perform. I also wanted to chase some records quickly (reached 1300 RBI early in the season) and retire quickly so I can test the mode out.

It's interesting. Most of the dialogue still refers to you as a rookie. Though, they don't ever say it. It's just things like, "C. Jones, I'm really looking forward to seeing what you can do out there." And of course, you're thinking, "I'm freaking Chipper Jones. You already know."

But, the game stayed true to that. I started every game in Spring Training. Hit cleanup as well and played the entire games. Then started hitting third to open the season.

So, it looks like My Life does do a good job of letting you jump into the shoes of a real life player that has established a history.

The paycheck is also nice and lets me buy almost anything I want.

Once I finish up with him, or sometime in between his career, I'll get into starting up with a nobody and enjoying that experience.

Re: MLB Power Pros 2008 - MLB Life thread

I went through success mode with my pitcher, who is the next Tim Wakefield, except I relieve. I got my Knuckleball maxed out and I have a splitter, which I don't use, a slow curve, like Wakefield and its a 2!, and a Fastball that tops out a about 80 on a good day.

It's been really fun, I dominated spring training and I have started the season. I have 3 or 4 apperances in about 14 games, but I have 1 win and about 7 K's and no runs.

Keep in mind I try to keep it realistic with the knuckle. Wakefield throws majority knuckle unless he falls way behind in the count and he might throw a fastball. I usually throw knuckles until I get 2 strikes, then I throw a knuckle off the plate, if that doesn't work I then come back with the high heat or my slow curve, which works really well too.

All in all I'm having a blast in this mode and I am friends with Matt Holliday, My favorite Oklahoman in the Major Leagues right now.

Yeah i forgot about that, it makes sense since i was allowed to be a free agent after my sixth year. Thanks, i totally forgot about that.
The free agent thing is pretty cool. Your agent will gather offers from other teams through a two week period. If you don't sign a contract in the first week it's not always going to give you another one in the next.
The first week i got three offers: 5 yr deal with the Blue Jays ( finished in last place) My former team the Cubs ( finished in fourth)
And the Reds ( finished in last place)
I took the risk and didn't sign with anyone the first week then the next week came and i only got one offer from the Cubs so i sign with them, now i got to play five more years with them.

Re: MLB Power Pros 2008 - MLB Life thread

I just started MLB life, about 3 weeks in, and the Triple A team I am on sucks! I;'m sick of these stiffs. We are getting smoked 8-0..9-0.,,almost every game and no one is ever on base when I get up.

Also I like to look at all the random names I play against and it's funny when you see a former major leaguers somehow you are playing against. I just like to think they got sent down to the minors...lol.

Re: MLB Power Pros 2008 - MLB Life thread

In 2015 my guy broke the record for most home runs in one season with 61. I lead the league in HR, RBI, and was second in AVG.
We won the world series and i was the WS MVP and Regular Season MVP. My wife gave birth to a girl in May of 2014 and she is pregnant again and is due June 11 of 2016. I have reached the A level on the skill pyramid. Here are my attributes.
Trajectory 4
Contact 9 "C" reached peak
Power 140 "B"
Run Speed 11 "C" reached peak
Arm Strength 11 "C" reached peak
Fielding 10 "C"
Error Resistance 11 "C"

Re: MLB Power Pros 2008 - MLB Life thread

Boy that Emma. I got her up to 4 stars, proposed, and she told me she couldnt marry me without a car. So I bought a car. Then it was a house. So I bought a house. Then it was "I dont feel that way about you yet." Money grubber.


Any tips on how to level up quicker? I'm in year 2, and struggling to get my power and contact ratings above E(99) and E(7) respectively. Which leads to a problem staying in the Tigers lineup, even though I am their only catcher. Why they put Carlos Guillen there I dont know.

hahahaha, that's great.

And the randomness is funny in MLB Life. I'm trolling in Triple A with a bunch of stiffs who can't even get on base, we get drilled every game, and then you get a good laugh at some of your opponents. I had to face poor Rodney trollin in triple A yesterday and he was huffing and puffing on the mound, and I'm like that's what you get for hitting people and throwing the ball all over the place.

A tip is to really do the same practice over and over. Not the practice alone the one where practice is the only option. Do the same one over and over and then that training will become more effective. DO hobbies! Certain hobbies boost your attributes. Fishing boosts your arm, golf your power and so on. And read a lot of training books.

I'm in the majors, so the Practice isnt an option. I just want to be able to earn the managers trust so I can start more often. In limited time, I'm a .310 hitter, but with no power(2 homers in 300 career MLB AB's).
