Bacon's Fictional Roster a Magical Journey in MLB The Show 20

If the news about a truncated MLB the season not being transferred to franchise mode in MLB The Show 20 has you down, then why not just pretend you’re creating your own league this year instead? Bacon’s fictional roster received a substantial update at the beginning of July, and I bring it up now because it’s now confirmed we’re not going to be able to mimic a real MLB season this year no matter what. So why bother trying? Instead, let’s go to fantasy land.

Bacon’s Fictional Roster

bacon fictional roster update

Name: Bacon’s Fictional Update — can find it just searching for “bacon” in the Roster Vault

Here is what Bacon had to say about the latest update:

This year’s update for Bacon’s Fictional Roster is coming earlier than last year due to COVID-19 and the insane increase of free time I had this spring that I poured into this roster. There are over 200 new players added in this update. Some have already been uploaded to the player vault as they were created where some are players that you have never seen before.

The players I added in this batch consist mainly of AAAA type players and longer term prospects with higher potentials. Some of these will be very obvious and some will take some digging. Should be easier for NL teams to fill the DH spot now if you choose to go that route.

The SCEA randomly generated filler MiLB players have been removed. They have been replaced with as many players as I could make AND 1 overall New Pitchers/Fielders. I added all the Rule V draft picks back to their team’s 40-man rosters so they won’t be stuck in AA/AAA. Players are: Vote(BAL), Weaver(TOR), Stephens(MIN), Ortega(OAK), Sexton(TEX), Salazar(ATL), Pittman(MIA), Owens(PHI), McDonald(PIT), Stanton(StL), Sharp(SD) & Russo(SF).

Some faces (especially noses) and skin tones have been reworked for select players that seemed too big or too tan. These edits will continue in future iterations.

More Easter Eggs have been added for you to find. The #21 has been “retired” throughout the roster in honor of Roberto Clemente. #buccos

Contracts have been touched up a bit including me adding a few more bad contracts which could add another layer when trying to deal with morale or budgets. Equipment has been touched up a bit just to update as I have done in the past.

I moved players around to craft All-Star teams for both leagues. Not all the best players are on either team but each league has at least one team represented as per real MLB All-Star game rules. This will only work in Play Now.

There will not be a companion spreadsheet for this update. The next companion sheet will be March/April for when BFR2021 is uploaded. Here is a link to the companion spreadsheet for the 2020 roster.

All of the logos I used for my full 30 team rebrand have been in the vault for a while. They will remain available all year long. DM me if you want/need help re-creating any.

DM or tag me with any questions you have about this roster — bacon96 on Operation Sports and @baconsfictional on Twitter) — any of my other rosters or any future MLBTS work. I’m more than glad to talk about any of it.

You can also re-brand the entire league with the 30 teams Bacon created — again, just search in the vault for these — or you can make your own branding. You can even keep the same 30 MLB teams and just use the roster itself. What I personally like to do is a fantasy draft with this roster and otherwise keep the 30 MLB teams intact because I don’t think the re-branding goes far enough to really make it feel like it’s 30 created teams (when factoring in the stadiums).

However, you choose to enjoy these rosters is up to you, but I just want to say again don’t be scared to try these out. I am a hardcore simulation nut, but it’s very liberating to go into something and not know any players and not have any expectations. You have to do scouting reports, search for hidden gems, and really just experience a whole new league for the very first time.

  1. Some details of this roster include but are not limited to:

    • Service time completed for most players.
    • References to baseball in pop culture like Ricky Vaughn from the classic film Major League and Mike Lawson for FOX's recently canceled drama Pitch. There are a few more to be found as well.
    • Brothers on the roster. I created a set of twins named Parker and Seth Floyd who both play second base for a Bay Area team. There are more that you can find who look similar and have the same last name.
    • Complete All Star game rosters available in Play Now.
    • Unique names like Blondie Pena and Bronco McClendon.
    • I left Legends in the FA list for those who like to use them.

    - This roster was created on MLB16 and then transferred to MLB17.
    Another reference not listed is that from the Phillies' subreddit: Kodeyashi
    Here are screenshots for every team's top 10 players.
    I also added screenshots for player cards of a few notable players here.
    If you'd like to know any more details then please go ahead and send me a PM or comment below.
    Baseball is Better!
    EDIT:
    Beginning in 2019, Bacon's Fictional Roster no longer includes pop culture references within the roster like Major League or Mr. 3000.
    2nd EDIT:
    If you are looking for a roster that contains players like such, please look for "Volsfan39" in the roster vault. He has uploaded his own fictional roster that includes a number of references and includes a complete roster for every MLB team as well.
    great work and will download it as soon as possible. It seems there are more quality fictional rosters this year.

    So if this roster turns out well, I will gracefully bow out of fictional roster making and just add my players to FA and start actually playing the game.
    So optimism for this roster.
    Alright guys. Thanks for the little hype that has been generated in this thread. I am now ready to upload the roster for y'all to enjoy.
    It's been uploaded to the roster vault:

    Hopping on right now to check these out. Just curious, who is your top 10 favorites on these rosters? What teams do you think you'll run a franchise with?

    Thanks for the DL. I appreciate it...
    I don't necessarily have a top 10 favorite player list together because there's so many guys on this roster I enjoy using (and I know that sounds like a cop-out but I've played as every team and there's no one who sticks out who I really don't like.
    As for a whole team that I like, it would probably be the Mariners. They have a good mix of power, pitching and they're in the AL where as I'll be continuing my Brewers franchise with the OSFM roster.
    I'm thinking I might try this out tomorrow, but I have a couple of questions.
    1. Is this a full 90 man roster?
    2. If this is a full 90 man roster, what teams do you think would be a great team to start a rebuild with? I really want to change it up a little and do a team other than my Astros.

    It's a 25-man major league roster with the default generic minor leaguers. I didn't have time to edit all of them.

    just know - it works GREAT with franchise mode. a buddy and i both started our own fantasy draft franchises and it was a treat -- opening day was a hell of a ballgame, i'll give the full recap in a later post with pictures and videos but yeah -- it's technically a full-90 man roster of fictional players :y16:
    Holy Molly Batman.
    I have not played with a fictional roster since MLBTS 12
    I am really looking forward to this Bacon. It is always fun to play with fictional rosters. It is truly a blank slate to create your own storylines to the entire league.
    I love it man. Great job!!!!
    Bacon any chance you can list all the different movie personality players you put in the roster? The reason I ask is because I'm going to add a few myself and sprinkle them around the league and I don't want to make any duplicates if you can't remember that's OK but if you do that would be cool.
    Awesome roster btw.

    Could you create Ray Kinsella(Kevin Costner, Field of Dreams) and Terence Mann(James Earl Jones, Field of Dreams) and add them to this roster? I love that movie.
    What a cool idea! Haven't seen any mention of that legendary drunk of a reliever from the Boston Red Sox, Sam Malone! Also Archie Graham, the kid in Field of Dreams that the whole movie was ultimately about. Thanks for continuing to think of great things guys!
    Hey a heads up.
    I am by no means a great player creator, however being that this is fictional I can do a decent enough job making these fictional movie players.
    I will be trying to create 1-2 every few days or as time permits.
    Personally I am also creating myself, and some of my old high school and college teammates to add into my own franchise with this roster (no not uploading these guys LOL).
    Bacon did an amazing job on these.
    Once I am done I will upload the roster with Bacons permission to the vault with these players all placed on their teams.
    I will also upload these guys individually
    Going to re-think which teams I place them on......need to study the rosters and see where they would fit. But Bad News Bears players will be on the west coast.
    Leak fits perfectly on the Dodgers.

    You definitely have my permission to upload your additions...credited is appreciated and I am very glad that you're going all in with this roster.
    And it's funny that you say that you're making yourself because a somewhat accurate version of myself and my brother are on this roster too.
    I'm heading into the fourth year and I think there are too many players rated in the 90's because most guys are getting signed in the off season. And since they never get picked up during the season they retire the next off season. Just a little heads up

    Got ya, either way is fine, I guess I just remember Kelly from his days on Bad News Bears.

    Absolutely. But this is the major leagues and I figured I would use an adult picture to replicate hiw he aged.
    I will fool around with some hair styles though and see if we can get that retro feathered hair style lol!!

    How about the Pitcher from the Movie Sandlot, Kenny Denunez? Supposedly he went on to pitch in the Minors?
    Qb
    I think Rayburn is in there already, IIRC. Maybe you could give Benicio Del Toro's character a shot... you know,
    For fun, here's De Niro saying Bob-bay montage from The Fan. What a flick!

    Yep just caught that.
    I think I have a very healthy list and that is more than enough "baseball movie" players to sprinkle into the set.
    I can't wait to be finished and start a franchise with these. So much story line potential up and down. A lot of very cool players and names throughout this roster.

    Awesome! Any way you add "Gus Bus" from The Benchwarmers?
    Also, not really a fan of the movie "Rookie of the Year" but Henry Rowengartner might be kinda fun to add.
    "Little Big League" has some decent ones to add too, like Lou Collins, and Jim Bowers.
    Just suggestions, never really done a fictional roster before but I'm probably gonna give this a try when it's all done.
    I have come to this site off and on for a few years always to check for an updated osfm roster update. I never created a profile or anything just been a creeper every once in awhile looking to poach a roster update I won't lie lol
    I literally created a profile tonight to thank you for all the work you put into the fictional league. I saw the unfortunate trouble they were having with the massive osfm roster update and started looking around more on the site and saw this post. I got your original roster and although I could never do what you did (AMAZING WORK SIR!!!) I wasn't expecting much...I thought it would be something for me to play around with for a bit. But after a fantasy draft yesterday and playing a few games today I think I'm more in love with THIS league than the "real" league! Should be a really fun season and one I actually stick with! (I usually play a month or so and than start a new franchise because I enjoy drafting my full 90 man team, setting up the look of my organization and all of that) But this league has me excited to see if the players I expect to see as break out stars will be and to be honest I really feel like my GM skills or lack of are really being tested!
    I drafted with the Twins and my top 3 picks were T.J. Reed Jr., Jacob Quantrill and the beast Nate Painter. A very very young team with a lot of prospects should be exciting.
    Thanks again man the work you put into this league is AMAZING!
    Jack Parkman - C - White Sox
    Rudi Stein - RP - TBD minor leaguer
    Are finished. I will post pics soon.
    The White Sox already had a super stud at Catcher and I browsed through the roster and decided to move him to the NY Mets.
    My goal is to keep the rosters balanced properly as Bacon intended.
    Some of these players will be in AA or AAA and not Major League Ready. I don’t want to clutter what is already a fantastic MLB roster that Bacon gave us.
    I am really looking forward to getting a 30 team control franchise going with these really soon.

    I updated this list as well as re-thought some players and did some removals. Major League (The movie) is well represented already. Costner has two guys going to be in the game and that is enough (removed Ray Kinsella). Removed Mr Baseball and The Scout characters. Not so iconic for me.
    Also as you can see you will not find all these players in the MLB. Some will be in the minors.
    11 players left to create and my goal is to get them done over the next week and upload this V2 of the roster.
    Bacon,
    I noticed there are some generic players down in the minors simply named New Pitcher or New Fielder and ratings of 1.
    I am curious if you planned on updating these for franchise play.

    If not.....I will go through each one and randomly name them and set attributes.
    This will take some time so sit tight everyone. I want this to be a 90 man set and Bacon has done a ton of the heavy lifting.
    These are all career minor leaguers and range from 4-7 per each team that need to be edited, new faces etc.

    that is awesome man, not only can we do a full franchise and see the growth through the years, it can transfer to future show versions as well as RTTS this awesome, thank you and bacon for doing an awesome job!

    The only issue I have with making it a full 90-man roster is that a ton of the older players will retire prematurely. The new pitcher/fielder players are currently in the roster to limit how many of the players I made will retire. They're also there because those were the base players that I used to remove any real player in the game.
    I'm currently working on a v2...most new pitcher/fielder players are being replaced with A potential prospects. That being said, any A potential prospects on the original roster have become B prospects (or lower) because they are generic minor leaguers developed by SDS. This will make future years of the roster better looking long term.

    Very cool. I did not even think of the early retirement issue.
    I will await V2 and then import the additional Fictional Movie players onto them.

    Yep doing the same.
    Once V2 is ready I am going to add the fictional baseball movie caps to it and upload it as a version 2.5 Expanded Fictional Baseball Movie Edition.
    All credit to Bacon of course.
    This is going to be a fun file. I have no clue what team I am going to pick. So many cool players on each one.
    I am also adding full monty player walk ups with SOTS. All the parks are done.....but all these players will need walk up songs. That will really make it authentic.

    That was the plan!
    As for the update, v2 will be pushed back ~1 week. I'll make another post on here before I upload it and expect that around June 8-9.
    Sorry for anyone who was really looking forward to v2...I've just been too busy to sit down and create more guys up to the standard that I keep.

    UPDATE:

    Give me another week...v2 should be out on June 15!

    UPDATE:
    Give me another week...v2 should be out on June 15!

    I will now confirm that Bacon's Fictional Roster v2 will be uploaded to the roster vault on June 15! It will be uploaded tomorrow morning around 10 Central Time.
    This update includes 2 A prospects (one position player and one pitcher) for each MLB team for a grand total of 60 new prospects. Any player that was added has replaced a 'New Pitcher' or 'New Fielder' generic player that is used in all my rosters to prevent premature retirement for veterans. There are still plenty of these left so we don't need to worry about this becoming an issue in Franchise/RTTS. I also removed any A potential prospects from v1 as they were just randomized base minor leaguers from the original SCEA roster. The positions of the prospects I added were picked to fill needs at the major league level for their respective teams. Each player ranges between 19 and 24 years old and is between 56 and 66 overall. Go ahead and check them out!
    The additions I've made include:
    Pitchers:
    RHP - (16) BOS, TB, TOR, CWS, CLE, MIN, LAA, OAK, TEX, WSH, CHC, CIN, ARZ, COL, LAD, SD
    LHP - (8) DET, HOU, ATL, MIA, PHI, MIL, PIT, StL
    CL - (6) BAL, NYY, KC, SEA, NYM, SF
    Pos Players:
    C - (2) MIN, COL
    1B - (4) TB, SEA, StL, SD
    2B - (3) KC, TEX, CHC
    3B - (3) LAA, MIL, LAD
    SS - (7) BAL, CWS, OAK, HOU, ATL, WSH, PHI
    LF - (4) TOR, DET, NYM, SF
    CF - (4) NYY, CLE, MIA, ARZ
    RF - (3) BOS, CIN, PIT
    Branching off of this further, there are 4 total 97 potential prospects who are:
    Larry Berkins RHP Cincinnati Reds
    Alfonso Ornelas RHP Arizona Diamondbacks
    Monty Hillman CF Miami Marlins
    Oliver Young SS Houston Astros

    Thanks for putting this together. I know how much work this is and I have played your v1 roster and was very impressed.
    Based on your latest roster, are these now playable for long term franchise play? Will we see proper call ups and roster trades based on team needs? Only asking because I am really hoping for a solid fictional roster to play long term multi year franchise (carry over to MLB Show 18, etc.).
    Thanks again for your efforts.

    Hello, thanks for the DL.
    This set should be good to go for franchise use. Retirements should only be new fielder/pitcher and I've made it so there are less A potential prospects which should make less 90+ players too early into a franchise. I haven't witnessed anything else that was too different from what I would expect in a franchise.

    This is seriously so much fun.
    Bacon you did such a great job with these.
    Played opening day with the Indians and we held on for a 7-5 extra inning win after blowing a 3-0 lead heading into the 8th and then our closer blew it in the ninth.
    Roger Dorn homered as well as Eric Rowe. Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn pitched 8 strong innings with 10K's. Willie Mays Hayes also added a double and SB.
    What a blast learning and seeing all these brand new fictional players. It is like playing a brand new game.
    Really look forward to checking in with some updates between the Indians and Dodgers (Kelly Leak is on the LAD and their lead off stud superstar).
    Wonderful stuff here folks.
    I'll be starting a franchise with my fictional roster this weekend.
    I've chosen the Los Angeles Angels as my team.
    I'll be simulating the first season but making moves as I feel. I'll play some games to start the second season and post (semi) regular updates on my 'Dynasty' page.
    Bacon, great job on these! Armors contribution was the icing on the cake. I'm using v2.5 and rolling with your suggestion of simming the season and starting in 2018. Out of interest I simmed at Default and saw lots of trades and a Astros versus Mets World Series in which the Mets came out on top. After the sim the roster filled out nicely and ratings look in line with the incoming players. It's also playing really well with the morale system. I haven't decided on a team yet but the Brewers traded for Crash Davis and are still a bit of a powerhouse so they are really tempting me ATM.

    So, basically are all players real except for a few? What did you do about stats/contracts? ie: How was this addressed?

    ALL players are fictional. The roster does include every legend still listed as a free agent because I wasn't sure what everyone might want to do with it once I uploaded the finished project. Minor leaguers are mostly still generic. Stats and contracts are made up both using the 'CPU roster control' workaround in franchise.
    Hope this is what you were asking.
    I've always wanted a generic roster set. I can't believe I never actually thought to look in the forms to find one. I literally found these yesterday afternoon and I can't stop playing. Awesome job

    There is nothing GENERIC about these rosters my friend. And that's what makes them great.
    LOVE these rosters. They have definitely breathed new life into this game for me. One issue though, there are 16 players rated 80 ovr or better (7 of them or 90+) that are just sitting on the FA list . IDK if teams just can't afford them or what, but is there a way to fix this without starting over and controlling all teams? I just don't have the patience or time for that anymore.
    One of them (SP Miguel Cabrera 93 ovr) has been there for two seasons now. Will they eventually get signed or are they stuck?
    For anyone wondering, I am currently (slowly) working on adding more players and I will transfer all my work to the new MLB The Show game shortly after it comes out.
    I haven't decided if I will begin a new thread or continue to use this one but either way y'all will know what I'm up to.

    I haven't decided if I will begin a new thread or continue to use this one but either way y'all will know what I'm up to.

    So glad that you are building onto this and taking them into the next game

    Been playing with the Indians and I adore this set. So many great personalities and such a retro look to many players. It's a joy.

    There is nothing GENERIC about these rosters my friend. And that's what makes them great.

    I 100% agree with this. Players have very well-defined traits and skill sets...I love that the players are created so that even some 60 overall guys have uses (it might merely be as a pinch-hitting specialist versus lefties), but he has a tangible use. I love seeing the light-hitting defensive guys, speed demons who can't hit, etc.
    There is just SO much strategy involved when using this roster, and that, more than anything, is what really draws me to it.
    Piggybacking off my last post, I should also mention that if anyone would like to assist in creating players that would be much appreciated! I need filler minor league players and free agents.
    Send me a PM if you're interested and I'll give you credit for any creation in posts going forward.
    bacon96
    You definitely have my permission to upload your additions...credited is appreciated and I am very glad that you're going all in with this roster.
    And it's funny that you say that you're making yourself because a somewhat accurate version of myself and my brother are on this roster too.

    Idk, just sayin'.
    These rosters have given me so much joy. Im about 80 games into a fantasy drafted season.
    One thing though...has anyone simmed more than a season ahead and noticed that every year several 90+ players go unsigned all season? I ran some test sims and every year this is the case. They eventually get signed the following season but then a new crop of 2-3 90+ players remains unsigned.
    Im pretty sure its got something to do with budgets as teams are unable to sign these top flight guys due to financial constraints. Ive tried making offers to them and I get the msg you cannot make this offer message. Im playing 30 team control so I’ve tried signing from multiple teams.
    I noticed that the overall budgets are way lower for most teams with the bacon roster than they are with the default scea.
    Does anyone have any experience with budgets and how I could manipulate them during season 1 of the bacon experience so that this isnt a problem in future years?

    I noticed this a while back and am working on overalls and such so players don't go unsigned.
    I'm also reworking the overall salaries/budgets for every team in hopes of making it more playable a few years down the road.

    Because of how attached Ive become to these little digital players in Bacons roster, I decided to take on the laborious task of going through every single player in the league and making edits, since there is no way to do this globally.
    After running multiple test franchises where Id lower the 90+ soon to be free agents on the last day of season, by 8 overall points, I found that it was providing a work around and teams would have both cap room to sign the top tier guys as well as room to trade the following season.
    However rather than simply lower guys above 90 in their final year I decided to lower everyone in the league, which better suits my preference anyway.
    Im lowering everyones potential -7
    Im lowering all position players and starters by -8 overall.
    Im lowering relievers by -2
    Im lowering closers by -5
    Everyone. All levels.
    So far Ive completed 6 teams since Monday working on it in the evenings for an hour or so.
    Im not touching contracts as Im modifying my current franchise which is yr 1 about 70 games in. But I figure things will work themselves out organically as budgets will rise over time, and the league will grow into them as players advance
    Bacon, the players in this roster are fantastic. I absolutely love them and believe that this huge investment in edit time will ultimately be worth it.

    Any update on this? I want to start a franchise with this roster before 18 comes out so I have something to import and play when game comes out. Thanks in advance!

    Any update on this? I want to start a franchise with this roster before 18 comes out so I have something to import and play when game comes out. Thanks in advance!

    At this point, I'm not planning on uploading anything until after 18 comes out. I've made drastic changes in terms of payroll, adding new players to make it a full 40 man roster instead of just the 25 and I'm still playing around with the unsigned players issue.
    However, I've set myself up to be in a good position for a quick turnaround once 18 drops. I'd say there's a very good chance my first version on 18 will be uploaded within 2 weeks of launch.
    Here's some news regarding the roster I will share at this time:
    There will be two versions of the roster out again this season.
    One roster won't have any of the movie characters that were in the original roster but will likely be filled with a player who is roughly as good overall. While the other roster will be packed with as many baseball movie/tv references that we can fit into it. Both Armour and Sword and Deucemonkey23 have been working on CAPs to increase the amount I had in the original roster.
    There will be a companion Google spreadsheet for anyone interested however that is still very much a WIP.
    Both rosters will include edits from the original to give players a more lifelike feel to roster management and their physical appearance. I've expanded the payrolls on every team, expanded from a 25-man roster to a full 40-man roster on every team, including 10 rule five draft picks, and given extensions to 2-5 players per team to give some consistency there throughout franchise/RTTS. Some of these contracts are bargains in my opinion and some are overpays; something I feel will make it more realistic as well. I also think that I have fixed the free agents remaining unsigned after the season but I'll be testing that again once 18 drops. Potentials have been touched up to give a better feel but I'm still not entirely sure how potential works. Another quick note is that this roster is frozen in time so players will not progress from year to year if I continue it into MLBTS19 and beyond.
    Like Bacon said......we will be making even more baseball movie caps.
    I am compiling a list of other baseball movie players to add. Bacon really made a fantastic fictional roster here and it does have a retro feel too.
    I look forward to helping making it even better and can’t wait to start a fresh Indians “Major League” Redux franchise on 18!!!

    Man can't believe I missed these...
    I plan to have a fictional Alternate Universe MLB for '18 so these will be perfect :)
    Thanks!

    In terms of movie players. If there a re multiple players from one team in a movie, but not enough to fill an entire team...do you place them on the same team as each other, or separate them?

    Movie/TV players will be placed on the team they are on in the movie/show they are in regardless of other players on that team.

    So in the case of guys I created from the Bad News Bears.....I placed all those guys California teams. But not on the same one. Kelly Leak is on the Angels I believe (or Dodgers memory escapes me) Rudi Stein is a minor league middle reliever in the A’s system, And Ahmed was placed on the Padres. I am going to create Carmine from Bad News Bears In Breaking Training but have him on a NY Team since he was an Italian from Brooklyn. Or maybe I place him on the Astros since he pitched in the Astrodome in the movie. I am going to create some more Bad News Bears (Tanner for example) as well as some more kids from The Sandlot.
    I will compile a list here soon.
    Hey all!
    I'm very pleased to say now that I have completed adding players, making players more life like, and adding service time to players who didn't have it to the roster that I had in place for earlier releases. As I've mentioned in past posts, I created a good number of minor leaguers for every team as well as adding more aspects to make the roster play more accurate to the MLB. With all this new information, I decided to combine it with my excel skills with this roster by putting most of the data you'd need into a spreadsheet so I'd like to share it at this time.

    General update for everyone:
    I'm currently working on transferring players over from 17. I'm planning on editing every player's appearance and equipment briefly then creating/editing all batting stances to get a good mix of unique stances. This will take a while but I'm still on track to upload the roster sometime in early April.
    Baseball is Better!
    I imagine if these great rosters had a team by team guide that explained the dynamics of each team. Like a season preview. I'd love to make one but I don't know enough about the backstories of the teams to do so.

    I always had issues with the draft on these rosters. Way too many pitchers for some reason.

    Alright. Thanks for this tidbit. I'll look into fixing this for this year's roster.

    I haven't begun this process yet but it should work smoothly and will be done shortly after the release of the initial roster.

    Are the movie players not on this years roster?

    Not on this initial roster. There will be a movie/TV player heavy roster later on but not tomorrow.
    It’s been a few years since I played with a fictional roster and I plan on doing my 2nd franchise with this roster. Are all teams about the same in terms of talent, or are there powerhouse teams along with cellar dwellers that need a rebuild?

    There's decent variation between really good and meh teams. Some more obvious rebuilds and others that are really in between. I also *kind of* tried to have teams who aren't contenders now, be contending teams in this roster.

    I'd say yes but preferably not an overwhelming amount.
    Mmm... wish I'd seen this earlier. Found a different fictional roster and started a franchise with it, am a couple of years in and it's really fun buuuut.... it has required a lot of fixing and maintenance. It's pretty clear that the guy just took the current minor leaguers and moved them up, and I've noticed a lot of real prospects (Gift Ngoepe, Niko Goodrum, Max Fried, some others) that I've needed to weed out. Beyond just that, there are TONS of 1 overall players that teams won't take of their MLB rosters and most players are over 70 speed. I'm thinking I may just scrap that franchise and start over with these rosters.
    Anyone ever see the movie "Comrades of Summer"? Great HBO made-for-tv movie back in the day. I own the VHS but it was never released on DVD.

    Bacon has the version I uploaded on 17 with the movie players I created last cycle and we will work together on adding a few more fictional baseball movie players for the 18 release.
    Just waiting on his word when he ports over the existing players that were on 17.

    Just love this roster Bacon. Love that you have a little 'tongue-in-cheek' memes throughout the roster (the rotund utility guy named "Justin Case"...CLASSIC!...of course I had to sign him...lol).
    I love real life rosters, but man oh man, this one is just a lot of fun. Not only that, really love the player variety as it adds an extra layer of roster management and strategy to the game. If I can actually manage to choose a team; I could really dive into a franchise using it :)

    What's up Bacon. Love the fantasy roster idea. What slider set are you playing with?

    For my franchise, I have barely touched the sliders. I want there to be less overall hits so I moved solid hits to the left 1 while moving pitcher control and pitcher consistency to the right one each.

    I've been meaning to add to this thread. A big shout out to you bacon. The roster is a ton of fun. Players have different skill sets and personalities and it feels like a living breathing universe! I did a fantasy draft and am currently 20-11 with a four man rotation of kole Robertson , Quinn brignac, and Marty Melankon. I upped stamina slider to ten and have been having a blast. Also Reid Fortenberry is a moose and can rake! Its early going but I have a feeling this will be the first time I use the carryover feature when the new mlb show comes out. And I'm really excited to see what the pitching numbers are going to look like by the end of th season. Thanks!!

    Hey! Thanks for the download and I sincerely appreciate the reply and I'm really glad to hear that you're playing with the roster. While working on the roster, I always hoped that people would pick up on how certain players have more personality and have specific skill sets.
    The year-to-year save feature is one of my favorites as well. Being able to continue transferring this roster over was the main reason I have been able to continue working on it.
    As for your franchise, that rotation is super strong. A four man rotation with those starters is gonna win you a ton of games. I especially like Brignac - he's a cheap lefty with a 12-6 curve and four other pitches on top of it. As for Fortenberry, he's the best offensive catcher on the roster. Absolutely mashes everything in sight and even hits for average in left-on-left matchups.
