OS Tip of the Day: MLB The Show Franchise Farm Systems

The term farm system taken too literally.
 
Remember to Always Build Your Farm System

No matter who you are, a strong farm system is the most important part of any club's success. Keep an eye out on your prospects and see how much they progress. These youngsters, coupled with some of your solid veterans, can make the difference in a best-of-seven series.

Also, when you have a very dominate player (Ichiro) on a very lousy team (Mariners), go trade hunting. Find those hidden gems in other club's systems. Make out like a bandit and try and grab two or three prospects -- they could be your future.
 
Balancing your future needs with present realities is what every great businessman does best. If you are to run a great MLB: The Show Franchise you'll learn this balancing act quickly.

It is indeed true that a farm system can grow to build a dynasty. Its hard to complain but in building my farm system I supplied my team for 15 years and won on average 110 games a year and as many as 125 in one season. I have been shut out of the playoffs at points after winning well over 90 games. I enjoy the drafting and signing in the game and track everyone of my drafted players and they do grow into bonefide all stars. I did notice tho that that they dont become MLB ready till later in age and dont see the career stats. Overall I have the most fun building a team through draft and trades. I also have not run into a problem maintaining my budget, if anyone was worried..just have to be responsible and pay attention to contracts and money room.
