MLB The Show 20: Ridin Rosters Has Released a 'Spring Training' Version of Its Rosters

There will be more updates to come, but as of last night, a “spring training” version of Ridin Rosters’ Full Minors is up in the Roster Vault for MLB The Show 20. You can find it by searching for the PSN ID RidinRosters or Full Minors 20.

For the uninitiated, the first release of these rosters is a spring training version for a reason. These are meant for the folks who want something close enough to perfect that they can fix up a little more on their own if they want (or they just don’t stress over every little error). The cool part is these are coming out so close after launch as a “beta” of sorts, which is a benefit of the collaboration between SDS and the Scout Scoops folks. In other words, if you want “perfection” then you’ll most likely get it sooner due to this earlier start.

I also do want to clear up some misconceptions about these rosters. If you’re really hardcore, base Full Minors rosters have never been plug and play. You have to put in some extra work, or get the work from someone who edits them up to be “plug and play” when you start a franchise. This is not a bug of the rosters. It’s a feature. Others will turn these into 40-man rosters (not that we really have a great handle on what the 40-man rosters will be for everyone anyway). You will have some missing players because there are tons of non-roster invites still hanging around due to the stoppage of play. You might even have a duplicate or two because this is not the “final” version or anything. These are not hard fixes, and we’ll look out for “edited” rosters that fit these guidelines for those who want them.

Lastly, Ridin and co. never edit ratings of players from the official roster. Again, this is a feature not a bug. Some players have ratings that are over 100 based on the base roster that was released by SDS on Friday, for example. You can fix those quite easily if you want (they seem to maybe even fix themselves during a franchise). We don’t know what the Opening Day starting lineups or rotations will be so you have to do that to the best of your ability for now.

This should not deter you from using these rosters in any way. Perfection does not happen with these rosters. When (if) the real baseball season starts, there will be errors because real life has a way of changing the virtual world. Do not be afraid to start your own journey today if you want to. There are also reports that these rosters are quite solid for player progression. Both in the short term and long term, these look like a much more stable roster set than what you normally get out of any roster. This means you don’t see as many overall imbalances as the years progress, and free agency pools generally make more sense.

If you do want to wait, there are fun fictional rosters out there to pass the time if you need to get into franchise mode. Either way, this is a great release and we’re thankful to have them out now.

    Just a couple of quick observations
    Ridin and crew got some of today’s transactions in, like Dustin Peterson to the Angels and Brock Stassi to the A’s - nicely done
    I didn’t see Seattle’s Kendall Graveman or the Angels’ Patrick Sandoval - both projected starters
    And a few players are listed as if they are on waivers with a “W” like Pablo Sandoval and Chris Davis

    Houston created good Caps for both those players

    But they made Gleyber an 80 hmm I can’t think of a single reason why he should be lower than urshela lol

    SDS makes some weird rating choices.

    Changing his position automatically made him 80 rated.

    Gleyber's an 89 in the current Live Roster, but an 80 in Ridin's roster

    Weird. And we're sure this is the real roster? They don't usually ever touch SDS guys.

    Gleyber’s ratings are the same. In Ridin’s roster he’s a SS instead of a 2B. That’s correct, he was supposed to take over SS for the Yankees this year. Changing a player’s position changes his OVR rating. SDS Live Roster still has him as a 2B with LeMahieu.

    This is right. Still, there's a lot of issues with the roster it seems

    what do you think would be a fair rating to edit him to? Maybe like an 85/86 since it will be his first full year at short?

    This roster ain't Ridin's. It's got to be a fake one. Take a look at all the teams 40-man roster and tell me if it makes sense or not.
    I expected the lineups and rotations to be correct but they aren't. Melancon was the closer last year at seasons end, is the closer on the braves updated depth chart on their website and projected to be the closer on roster resource but yet he's not even a closer at all on the new roster. That means I'm gonna have to go through every team and double check everything and I wasn't expecting to have to do all that.

    While these rosters are hot garbage, every year the first release usually has a bunch of errors. I would have thought that "working with" SDS would have helped eliminate a lot of this problem, but apparently it's still a problem. I can't believe he'd even release this mess.

    For those of you complaining, the Full Minors team doesn't touch 40-man rosters. That's all Sony, so take your issues there.
    Here's another beauty, if you don't like something then change it yourself. Gleyber's rating changed because his position changed. If that extra 8 on his rating matters to you then move him back to 2B.

    Doesn't seem like they touched much of anything else either.

    I wasn't complaining I was just confused... relax lmao
    I can assure you they did. I'm part of ScoutScoops where their work is much more appreciated than it is here. There is a big reason why they aren't called OSFM anymore.
    There is a lot to work with here (MUCH better than the out of the box mess), but still quite a ways to go. I am going to spend the week off cleaning them up and making them Opening Day ready for franchise.
    is anyone working on an updated set with correct 40 man rosters or *GASPS* do i need to do it myself?
    it is pretty asinine that even errors like Mookie and Bellinger being in single A happen...wtf?

    Wow..a lot of negatively here. These rosters are WAY better than the live rosters so that should deserve something. Of course there will be hiccups and things happen..these guys aren’t perfect but they spent more time than any of us to make a roster for the community..

    Relax, guys. This is NOT Ridin's roster. I mean the real Ridin. I'm sure he's busy puting the finishing touch on his own roster. Take a long look at all the 40-man rosters. It cannot be Ridin's stuff. It's got to be a FAKE one. Some ying yang pulled a fast one on all of us I bet. Ridin's identity was purely stolen. Shame on this individual who did that. I'm willing to bet my modest fortune on that.

    Worth remembering too that the first Full Minors roster always has mistakes. The original is never perfect. Ridin and his team usually release another version or two with corrections later on. I’m not sure if they’ll be doing that this year or if they are, as quickly as they usually do. As far as I know nothing has been said about that yet.
    Some of the complaints like 40 man roster’s, MLB players with certain ratings over 100, Gleyber Torres’s OVR rating, aren’t even the Full Minors team’s fault. Of course there was going to be some small mistakes.

    He normally comes on this board and makes the annoucement himself. His ID shows up on the left and it says Ridindwnkingsley, and on the bottom it says MVP. I just took a look at his last '19 roster and he presented that version to the gamers himself. You can check it out on the top of this Roster board. I am confused to say the least. When I took a look at this so-called roster, I said to myself Say it isn't so, Ridin !

    Just a heads up before starting, not that it will probably change much if you dont adjust, but some minor league players have contracts for 4-5 years at varying amounts. Examples are D. Garcia etc...I didn't catch before I started.

    How do you remove guys like Chris Davis from waivers so that they are usable in the roster? Right now they show as on the 26-man MLB roster but when you go to the lineup/rotation pages, they don't show up.

    You're all also aware that current real life events affect this as well, right?
    Rosters for all teams in real life aren't set whatsoever. The game can't magically predict each teams 100% accurate Opening Day roster.
    I’m sorry, but I have to agree in that I am disappointed in these rosters as well, although I do appreciate all the work that goes into these rosters. Like many, I’ve been playing “play now” games just chomping at the bit for these rosters to be released so I can start my franchise.
    But now what? I’ve seen several players with ratings over 100. What rosters are you going to use for your franchises? The updated SDS rosters? Hope and pray Ridin released an updated roster very shortly? Wait for someone else to come out with a roster?
    I’m confused.

    I think the main gripe with the rosters are the over inflated attributes, messed up 40 man rosters and fake players.
    Again, props to the team for making these rosters every year, but the feedback on this was going to happen regardless of how things are getting worded.

    Unfort SDS really dropped the ball on rosters this year and Ridin and Crew are doing the best they can with what they have been given.

    I expected the lineups and rotations to be correct but they aren't. Melancon was the closer last year at seasons end, is the closer on the braves updated depth chart on their website and projected to be the closer on roster resource but yet he's not even a closer at all on the new roster. That means I'm gonna have to go through every team and double check everything and I wasn't expecting to have to do all that.

    Yes, Mark Melancon was Braves closer at the end of 2019 but he is not the Braves closer for 2020. Will Smith was signed to take over closer. They didn't pay him all that money just to be a setup man.

    OD is not expected to be perfect...but 40 man's? Yes, those should be locked in. Just a quick comparison to MLBDepthCharts would have helped that issue.
    What a bunch of whiny spoiled brats! Holy hell! These guys do these rosters for free every year and back the game so much better for all of us!

    According to the Braves depth chart on mlb and fan graphs / roster resource, he's still listed as the closer and the projected closer, and until things change that's all we have to go off of.

    If I'm wrong I'm wrong, but I believe when real games play in 2020 we'll see Will Smith as closer. That's the only way that contract even makes sense.
    use www.rosterresource.com - I can vouch for Jason Martinez that he's the BEST in this business of projections and depth charts. You'll never really need another site ever after seeing his work (if you haven't).
    I'm really thinking about just going back to 19. I appreciate immensely the work these guys do, but let's be honest here: all of these mistakes seem so unlike them. And this promise from SDS, hyping this HUGE deal of having "full minors" right out of the box was an outright lie. None of this adds up. I know there are some slider makers here that belittle anyone with an opinion or insights/observations other than their own, but this 1.04 game update changed some things. Pitch speeds are a mess to figure out. Porting 19 rosters into 20 has caused name glitches to appear (for players now missing). 20 has so many good things, but 19 was also an outstanding game. I really believe SDS is pushing Diamond Dynasty so hard now that the reality is the rest of the game doesn't matter much. I know some here will read this and label me - I'm fine with that. But the roster release tonight is something all of us really look forward to, especially in light of all that's going on right now. I would easily have waited another 2-3 days for them to get some things right - with a few tweets (as they do a great job of communicating) about the mess they're cleaning up. Again, I'm deeply grateful for their efforts and work. I hope they take the constructive feedback to heart and provide something soon that cleans up things.

    Unless something has changed, Snitker himself has said Melancon will remain the closer at least initially

    Just search Ridin in username. It's the one with over 1000 downloads called Full Minors 20.
    So I'm going through and making these rosters opening day ready. Let me say, I worked on the out of the box rosters, and Ridin's version is a TON better. Took me about an hour to edit the Cubs roster to my liking, compared to about 3 for the Show roster.
    Here's the Cubs roster - https://sportsgamingrosters.com/2020/03/14/sports-gaming-rosters-mlb-the-show-20-opening-day-rosters-chicago-cubs/
    I fixed the following.
    - 40 Man rosters to the best of my ability. A couple players were excluded.
    - MLB roster is based off www.fangraphs.com (Roster Resource). Perfect resource and I will be following those for each team.
    - More accurate AAA and AA rosters. Moved a lot of guys around.
    - Created a few more prospects that were in the A pool. You can see on the above link who I created. If you go down to the top 30 prospects list it will have a CAP.
    Ridin's rosters are more than good enough IMO, and if you're itching to start a franchise right away you can't go wrong.
    I'm striving to make a fantastic set that people can use for years to come. It will take a while, but if you have patience, I think you will really enjoy what I'm working on. I'll make sure to pose all updates in the thread below. I hope you follow it.
    I'll upload the roster to the vault after I'm done with each team. Download it and check out the Cubs roster, and let me know what you think.

    These rosters are in pretty rough shape

    Super rough shape .. not even close in some cases. Needs some serious patching. There is a roster by MkHarsh33 that’s sig better IMO
    I’m kind of new to this. What effect does a player having ratings of over 100 do? Are they going to hit 80 homers? Do we need to edit this to somewhere in the 90’s? Does anyone know if Ridin’ will be making and changes to his roster? I want to start my franchise!!
    So, if you’re running 30 team control here is a way to get Davis and Sandoval out of purgatory. Trade Sandoval and Longoria (makes the money work) for Davis and Urias and then trade them back. You need to be in the worse side of the trade each time so the other side accepts. Then both guys are available for the lineup.
    Burgess
    How? On their rosters Trout’s ratings aren’t over 100
    Friday's SDS update had Pete Alonso power over 100. they then fixed it Sunday morning. this roster used that Friday roster as the base. that's why there is the duplicated Hunter Strickland David Hernandez & Yairo Munoz in the free agent list (SDS fixed that Sunday as well). and Ridin couldn't have made players over 99 if he had wanted to.

    Cardinals 19 year old catcher Ivan Herrera with 350 career homeruns. That's pretty impressive.

    The guy was playing and hitting HRs when he was like 6. A true super star.

    So not only is this roster not great, the game decided to reset everyone's gear to generic stuff. Oh boy.

    I’ve been using the roster and didn’t notice that. I’ll have to check it out when I get home in the morning

    To the people that is having trouble with the waive players. I just removed them from the 40 man and put them in AAA. When the franchise is started and using 30 team control just re add them on the 40 roster and bring them up and they’ll show up in the lineup screen. A bit annoying but its a workaround

    For those that want to edit the players with a rating over 99 im pretty sure this is all of them.

    I'm curios if multiple attributes are inflated per person?

    Add Edwin Diaz to the pitcher list. His K/9 is 105.
    Also, I believe the game corrects this. I simmed to the all-star break and trouts Power vs lefty has come down 14 in half a season. Haven’t investigated the others. I will also note that he’s having a bad year. Hitting like .246 with 14 homers.

Go to your safe space if you can't handle moving players around to their right levels or picking FA's to place on teams.I'm grateful for the roster and I know how to compile accurate teams based on team rosters set on MLB and milb. Can't believe all the noise from spoiled brats.Fix the roster your damn self and make it to your liking and stopped the nonsense.Grow up guys !! It should be a fun process like I approach it. You can't go anywhere anyways so use the free time and use your brains to fix the roster.Or wait for my roster which will have accurate 40 man MLB and MILB rosters set as to what is currently on each teams roster page on milb.com.Any extra players go to A ball or sit n as FA. Some milb rosters have too many players on it so the lowest rated goes down a level.Only importing missing players from ridins mlb19 roster that have audio. I had done Balt to Hou before the new roster with options dropped.I can do more than a full division per day and will upload as bronx_born58 psn id. I have the patience and skills to compile as accurate a roster with the info given.Starting now. So chill out everyone. let's have some fun.
    In relation to my previous post.I will be using the SDS live roster update of 3/20 and importing players as needed.At least the options are fixed and the errors and glitches are not there.
    I feel like there are several people on here that either have never downloaded an OSFM roster before, or are completely ignorant as to what these rosters routinely entail. Let me, as an outside observer, straighten out a few issues.
    - OSFM rosters never alter attributes of SDS players. Ever. Any changes to the overall comes from players being moved from their out-of-the-box position (ex. Gleyber Torres). You have a problem with the attributes being over 100 (or too low, or whatever), look to SDS, not Ridin's team.
    - OSFM is not a 40-man roster. Never has been. There are, however, some great roster creators that will turn the OSFM into a 40-man roster shortly after it is released.
    - So-and-so is missing. Yep, that'll happen. OSFM rosters tend to err on the side of veterans that have a chance to make the big leagues during the year in question. This year seems especially difficult with so many non-roster invites still on rosters due to the suspended season.
    - Missing 40-man players, duplicate players, etc., tend to be corrected within a few days when an OSFM correction roster is created by Ridin or someone else. Not saying this will definitely happen, but saying this has happened in the past.
    Furthermore, are some of you kidding me?! We've got a 90 percent correct roster put out within a week of the game's release and all you can do is complain?! Teams don't even have their 26-man rosters set with all of the craziness going on. Some people need to reassess their priorities.
    These were put together based off Fridays update so in 2 days, with tons of external circumstances and about half the man power as normal. It was meant as a spring training roster to get out quick for people at home to have something to do during all thats going on.

    Ridin will u consider releasing a new version without the scea errors on over 100 ratings? Just wondering cause sony snuck in that roster update yesterday or Saturday that has all that stuff fixed and DJ hall added etc
    I've been a non-fan of these rosters for a couple of years now. But I'll be honest, these are pretty darn good. A couple of thoughts.
    1. The attribute over 100 thing is present in SDS' roster this week too. Something is up. Thing is, it appears to be mainly cosmetic. It's also an easy fix...edit player, lower rating one click (you'll see it goes right back to 99).
    2. There are no opening day line-ups and rotations...because it hasn't bleeping happened yet (and may not for months). You have a 40 man, dive into spring training and let things sort themselves out. It's the perfect time for many of you to get off of this "mUsT miMIc rEaL liFE" schneid that cause you to do nothing but spin your wheels all season downloading the "newest" rosters in pursuit of perfection that is IMPOSSIBLE to attain while complaining about how you never complete a season. Start your own baseball universe today - you'll get far more immersed into it.
    3. I ran a 15 year simulation with these rosters. Let me tell you something; these are the most franchise-stable rosters Ridin's team has put out. You don't see a crazy exodus of really good guys under age 34 to FA purgatory after year 1. Older players do wind up on the list, but that's a by-product of how some of the roster logic is programmed. The player/team overalls, while they do spike around seasons 7-10, wind up re-stabilizing by year 12-13 as many of the younger MLB players (from the SDS base) begin to get purged.
    I remember in years past if u don’t want any transactions to be done when u sim spring training u make sure the 40 man only had active ppl. It seems this year that doesn’t work. Is there any way to make sure there’s no call up when u sim spring training

    The reason they are franchise stable is the editing that was done to potentials, its the perfect mix now.

    Do the ratings over 100 matter in the grand scheme of things when you sim/play games? Will those players have unrealistic stats?

    When you start a franchise the 100 plus ratings disappear

    Why are people obsessing over the 40 man? No 40 man rosters are "locked in" because there's always a ton of non roster invitees that will make teams which will result in a bunch of 40 man roster moves.

    And also we now have no way of knowing how teams would actually fill out their 40 man so this is a situation where people can just edit to their preference right?

    They are still there, at least in my franchise. During a game they become 99 but I think the higher ratings are in play behind the scene. Maybe not, just a hunch.

    Agreed.
    On top of that, these are changes that people can make themselves.
    I am thankful that you have those like Ridin & crew with the Full Minors and Bacon with the Fictional rosters putting in large amounts of work that they share with everyone.
    Instead of complaining, make the tweaks that are important to you and play ball. Probably could have made the changes in the time spent getting upset that the rosters are not "perfect"

    Excellent post. I can't believe that people aren't grateful for these rosters that Ridin and his team have put out. The amount of work that goes into this project is astronomical.
    For what it's worth in the past I've used TyCooper's 40 man version of Ridin's roster. I'm not sure if he's still around or plans to do so but I'm sure someone will do a 40 man.

    Thanks for the Rosters. I am going to start my franchise Thrusday which would have been opening and having these rosters will be great to get the season started.
    Awesome !!!!
    I just want to say my annual Thank you to Ridin and everyone who assisted. I dont like seeing all the criticism in here becuase i feel like its all things that the user can just fix themselves if unhappy.. There main goal was too add all real players which is a duanting task in itself just getting together the list of who it will be, the bios, the faces, etc...they Add so many extra players to the FA list as well. Even though i have the MVP edition Ive yet to play a inning as i am someone who has always worked on the rosters first before starting..ive worked on a roster everyday to pass the time but i knew id ditch it the second i downloaded these. The fun of editing a ton of Sds guys now starts along with getting rosters how id like them to be at the start.. These rosters have come so far..i can remember sitting at my desktop in 2011 attempting to PM Knight as a new member who finally signed up( looking at his OS profile picture of a dude in a golf cart) thinking i hope this guy uses my help on these rosters becuase ive just spent my whole month in the stands watchin the mets spring training games...the rosters have come so far...thanks again
    So I see a lot of people complaining about the 40 man roster but I'm not sure people are understanding how Sony's broke game works...
    If you have an accurate 26 man roster , when you start a franchise the game automatically chooses the top 26 players from the 40 man to put on the active roster so now the whole active rosters are messed up. Meaning people who are supposed to be on the MLB team will potentially be in the minors. Prospects will be put on the bench that aren't good enough to play. Teams are going to have 3 catchers.
    So in reality to combat this , if you care to have something close to an accurate 26 man roster , you'll have to go into spring training , remove all players that aren't on your active roster from the 40 man, then once the seasons starts you have add all the players back to the 40 man roster. ( For me, I dont add anyone to the 40 man roster. I manage this throughout the year to prevent the cpu from carrying 3 catchers, going with a 14 position players and 12 pitchers, etc.)
    This is a Sony issue guys. If you pine for an accurate 40 man roster, you're going to have a messed up active roster.

    You are so right! Fyi people you can set your own lineups and 40 man to preference. Its called Your Full Minors now, we drop it you create it and set it up anyway you want it.

    Or they can just go to MLB.com and add them themselves
    My only question just to make sure that I do this right is what do I do with the injured MLB players that are in Single A? I am planning to use this roster for a RTTS and I want to make sure that those guys don't disappear. Thanks in advance!

    Cardinals 19 year old catcher Ivan Herrera with 350 career homeruns. That's pretty impressive.

    I don't really care about any of the rest of the things people are talking about but has anyone caught anymore things like this where prospects have stats? Would like to fix those more than anything else.

    Well, if it is the ''real'' roster, it's kind of disapointing. This is not the Ridin we got to know thru the years.

    I don’t understand those who are complaining about a roster set that nobody is entitled to. People complaining about individual ratings over 99 didn’t even take the time to look at the original SDS roster to see that their are quite a few and that if you make any changes to these ratings you cannot go past 99. How privileged some must be to criticize and state that someone’s shared work is disappointing and not up to the standards you were expecting.
    There is no official Opening Day 26 man roster for any team at this time because there hasn’t been an opening day. We have a choice to use the current SDS roster, download one from the vault, or create our own. I’ve seen people complaining that Mookie Betts is in A ball. He’s also on the 40 man so if you start a franchise, he will be on the spring training roster. Send those who you don’t want to start the season on your MLB squad down the until you reach 26, set your lineups and rotation, manually add injuries to those you want, and sim to the end of spring training and start playing. I look forward to those who post edits, sounds of the show tracks, slider sets and appreciate that it he content is made available if I choose to use it.
    Thanks to everyone who contributed to this roster.

    This is a Sony issue guys. If you pine for an accurate 40 man roster, you're going to have a messed up active roster.

    What I did in the past was before going into Franchise, only have 25 guys on the 40 man roster... Doing so didn't cause my rosters, lineups, rotations to be messed with.
    Is this not the case anymore?

    I tried that this weekend with a few rosters and it added guys to the 40 man roster and even to the team that I was controlling. I didn't play spring training and chose option to skip it
    Does signing prospects to contracts mess up the future? I'm looking to sign some of the prospects years away that are only making 30 to 80 k to 2 or 3 year deals so they stay with there teams.

    I 100% agree with this. That was the first thing I looked at when I downloaded it and you guys hit it out of the park.
    -------------------------------
    As an aside, I think people clamoring for every single haphazard "prospect" on "their teams" need to consider this. You can have "every prospect" in the game and have way too many A and B potential guys that imbalance franchise mode OR you can have the key matured prospects and a mix of career minor leaguers (as Ridin's team has done) and have a better overall franchise mode. With the 90 man rosters in the game, that is the unfortunate choice we have. So, before you guys go clamoring about that 17 year old "big prospect" (95% of whom flame out when they are that age) and why he isn't in the game, consider the impact that it will have if fans from every team all get "their guys" in.

    Hi Ridin, I created an account finally just to comment on the rosters. The work you guys did has been amazing each and every year. As a franchise guy, I rely heavily on the roster edits that you and your team provide. I've been downloading the rosters for over 5 years now, and they have always been great. I usually make changes to the 40-man rosters, especially since the rosters used to be 25 man based when they first came out.
    What I don't understand is people complaining about any 40 man roster issues, or if guys should be AAA or MLB. Those are both things that should be user preference or at least can be easily updated by each roster user. There are also a few people who seem to forget that the SDS ratings aren't touched in these rosters.
    I wanted to comment to make sure you and your team understood that there are a lot of people out there that are very appreciative for all of the hard work and the great roster set you put out. I chose this post because it is important for people to remember that these are our rosters now. If there is something we don't agree with, then it can be easily changed either prior to starting the franchise or during spring training. I actually prefer making some changes to the roster because I feel a little bit more ownership of my franchise universe.
    In closing, thanks again for the rosters. My franchise has begun so I will not be needing any updates. Everyone stay healthy, and go Yankees!
    Dammit a little bad luck.. SDS released an updated roster with the ratings fixed, but Ridin roster uses the base roster before the fix! A bit of bad timing, i'm going to wait a bit now and hopefully a patch comes out based off the new update so the ratings are fixed and players don't have 117 contact.

    Does this mean that the computer doesn't make 30 minor league trades in April? (I'm still in Spring Training)

    Is this not the case anymore?

    Yes and no. What I remember before was that they wouldnt add people to the 40 man so everything would be fine.
    But no, in spring training they add the additional 14 people to your 26 man roster to make 40. I'n not 100% sure if the lineups stick but either way , you still have to remove all those additional people from the 40 man roster at the least. And this is automatic. Like even if its your user team with everything set to manual.
    Too bad we cant add franchise save files to the vault. I'm not a huge complainer but the amount of "workarounds" we need to utilize now is ridiculous.
    question: i mostly play "exhibition" games - just random matchups for fun. and i don't mind doing that and not even getting into a franchise mode. so what i would like some advice on is: with these rosters having some players with attributes over 100, will that impact exhibition games in any way? thanks!
    The Roster Looks Good, but Yes, it is not as Good as in Years Past and is Probably one of the Worst Yet, alot of player errors and double players. I would Rather wait like old times until early April and get a Great Roster, but then people would complain that it's too long of a wait. There will be a better roster released at a later date, this was rushed out for those of you Fortunate enough to be Home with nothing to do, I wish I could be Home with my Family but as a State Employee in NJ, we are deemed essential Personal, we are still working over 100 people in a one floor building. Stay Safe, Stay Home and Enjoy What You Have.
    Ridin...THANK YOU!
    I put close to 1000 hours into this game every year with roughly 800 of it being Franchise mode. Your team does a great job every year fixing what SDS just can't seem to get right.
    I use the updates from your team as the base for my roster work (that I do not upload). You save me hours and hours of menu scrolling every year.
    For the haters..."You don't like, you don't buy". Make your own roster and upload it so you can get sh!t on by this community of supposed adults (NOT directed at everyone here, let me be very clear when I say that).
    After following this forum for the last several years I finally decided to join with the hope that I could contribute something meaningful here. Now I'm not so sure it was a good idea.
    Thanks again Ridin, know that the vast majority of us appreciate what you do. None of us expected worldwide quarantine or the mess of a release SDS gave us this year.

    Yup , they dont stick man WTFFFF
    You basically have to start the regular season in franchise, fix the lineups and 40 mans from there, and then just save a base roster franchise file. This is not as big of deal right now cause luckily there no baseball , so that base file will be accurate for a while or until Sony adds the missing players but that might not be anytime soon.
    The work that Ridin and his team did is fabulous. The rosters are a bit jumbled at the moment. All we have to do is help each other out. Once we do this, I think we’re all going to enjoy this. Thank you Ridin and your team for the time and effort you put into this.
    Even though they aren’t injured in real life baseball right now, Betts and Bellinger are sitting in A ball for the Dodgers and should be 2 of the starting outfielders. Can anyone think of any other players on other teams that need to be moved from A ball to the 40 man?
    Also, does anyone have a running list of duplicate players so we can eliminate one of them?
    If I come across a question I can help with I will.

    Man, WTF.
    That has to be a bug or something, this was never an issue before! Set rosters with 25/26 players and skip to regular season.... Man this sucks!

    Unless something has changed, Snitker himself has said Melancon will remain the closer at least initially

    I have not heard that. Mind providing a link?
    This isn't so much a Ridin issue because it's the same for the sony rosters, but there is a list of HR celebrations for real people and about half the people on the list by default don't have the celebration selected in the roster.
    Happens every year...dude puts in work...people spazz out...SCEA updates roster people spazz our more..Rid updates from SCEA latest up date...more spazzing going on. Every year.
    So, what has been the main complaints with Ridins Roster? I went through and fixes all the ratings that were over 100....took maybe 20 minutes. One thing I noticed is many Yankee players are over rated...but that has nothing to do with Ridin.....can someone help me out with what other issues the roster has? I started spring training and don't wanna restart....if it's something I can fix then is prefer that route. Thank you in advance for your help.

    I went through and changed around the 40 man rosters to help out with some of the CPU teams. The main one you'll want to do is add Betts and Bellinger to the Dodgers' 40 main roster. Otherwise the CPU won't add them in franchise mode and they'll be stuck in AAA.

    Man, WTF.
    That has to be a bug or something, this was never an issue before! Set rosters with 25/26 players and skip to regular season.... Man this sucks!

    I know what you mean, I'd wait wait for the 25 man rosters to drop. Then id add te ppl to 40 man once I started my season and got past spring training so all the lineups/ rotations would stick. :(
    But you're a vet on these boards so you probably already know this route... just another new thing to work around lol
    gamer052001
    Has Ridin mentioned a quick, updated roster coming soon, or should we roll with this one unless we want to wait several weeks?

    They said this is it for awhile.
    I'm still testing but I fixed the NL to exact fan graphs / roster resource projections, Using 30 team control with a 26man roster when you start ST it auto fills out the 40 man. If you drop the added MLB players back down to the minors and advance to the regular season the lineups and rotations stick. I can only assume if I make the correct 40 man before starting a franchise then doing the same thing would work as well.

    I’m not directing this response to anyone but in a general sense - please enjoy the video game - the roster - the decision that this made to continue pressing forward for a community in-spite of a world community facing one of the greatest crisis this world has seen. I dropped off food today for the elderly - and as I went away - I didn't think about a roster at all - I thought - hoped & prayed that they would survive this time in history. Be kind - love one another - Always

    Thank you. I don't understand why people are upset that the 40 man rosters aren't exact....exact to what?! Right now the teams' real 40 man rosters aren't set in stone.....what are folks trying to match?.....Also, as long as a player is on the 40 man, then he will be in spring training ...even if he is on A Ball. There is no A Ball during Spring. So, when ur camp breaks....the best 26 will be on ur MLB Roster. I guess I'm confused on what the issues are and why so much complaining.

    What I did in the past was before going into Franchise, only have 25 guys on the 40 man roster... Doing so didn't cause my rosters, lineups, rotations to be messed with.
    Is this not the case anymore?

    It still works. Been doing it for years. Just make sure you have 40 man set to manual.

    I’m fine with Ridin’s rosters and actually like doing every teams rosters. I’m trying to find out if people are lowering players ratings from 100+ down to 99 or lower or leaving these ratings as is
    Hootiefish
    I feel like there are several people on here that either have never downloaded an OSFM roster before, or are completely ignorant as to what these rosters routinely entail. Let me, as an outside observer, straighten out a few issues.
    - OSFM rosters never alter attributes of SDS players. Ever. Any changes to the overall comes from players being moved from their out-of-the-box position (ex. Gleyber Torres). You have a problem with the attributes being over 100 (or too low, or whatever), look to SDS, not Ridin's team.
    - OSFM is not a 40-man roster. Never has been. There are, however, some great roster creators that will turn the OSFM into a 40-man roster shortly after it is released.
    - So-and-so is missing. Yep, that'll happen. OSFM rosters tend to err on the side of veterans that have a chance to make the big leagues during the year in question. This year seems especially difficult with so many non-roster invites still on rosters due to the suspended season.
    - Missing 40-man players, duplicate players, etc., tend to be corrected within a few days when an OSFM correction roster is created by Ridin or someone else. Not saying this will definitely happen, but saying this has happened in the past.
    Furthermore, are some of you kidding me?! We've got a 90 percent correct roster put out within a week of the game's release and all you can do is complain?! Teams don't even have their 26-man rosters set with all of the craziness going on. Some people need to reassess their priorities.

    I bet some of the people complaining weren't around back in the day when we waited 2 months haha..
    Thanks Ridin and Crew!
    I think the Blue Jays farm system is a little inflated. I don't think they should have 7 top 100 prospects as the #16 system. Just my opinion and I already changed it a bit on my own roster. Just wanted to throw that out, not to pile on hahah

    I've been coming here since 2009. Lost my login a few years back so I had to start a new one. I'm happy for all the work that is already done I've been tinkering around editing the base roster just to get an idea of the changes I was going to make when this dropped. I've never used the OSFM or Ridin exactly as is I always put my own touch on it as everybody should. We all have the same capabilities, if you don't like something just change it, it's the easiest thing in the world...

    You're right, but people would rather have things they can do themselves done for them. The whole Gleyber Torres rating thing for example.
    Like I said before, there is a reason they aren't called OSFM anymore.

    I lowered all the ratings over 100 but not to 99. I lowered them to a realistic number for that player. For example, many of the over 100 ratings is for plate discipline.....but the player is actually not a disciplined hitter. I wish I could remember which one's I changed like that but there were many. The ratings aren't perfect anyway, so I just went into each teams roster and quickly scrolled through (very easy now that u can is R2) to see what ones were too high. Easy to change. But, no, I just didn't think lowering to 99 was the answer........many of the Yankees are waaay over rated

    What a bunch of whiny spoiled brats! Holy hell! These guys do these rosters for free every year and back the game so much better for all of us!
    I went in, made a few edits to players, fixed the 40 man rosters to my liking and started my franchise. No big deal.
    Thanks to Ridin and anyone who worked on these! So very much appreciated here!

    Me too. The Ridin roster is fine with me. If I want to edit a couple of things I can do that. Only takes a couple minutes. People just need to chill out or do it themselves.

    These were put together based off Fridays update so in 2 days, with tons of external circumstances and about half the man power as normal. It was meant as a spring training roster to get out quick for people at home to have something to do during all thats going on.

    You do a great job. Don’t cater to the crybabies. They can do it themselves if they don’t like it. I do not have the skill of patience so I admire your work and skill set and am very appreciative

    I did sim a season prior to getting the roster with the inflated +100s and when my kids get off fartnite I'll get on and check how those particular players stats turned out. off the top of my head I don't recall anyone hitting 80 home runs or something like that but I'll check for sure

    So there's no "easy" way to get Pablo Sandoval off of waivers before starting a franchise? I had been waiting for this roster so that I'd have Darin Ruf as an option (even though he might end up being this year's Chris Marerro).
    It's not a major complaint, because I have major respect for Ridin and his crew for doing this each year, and I'm thankful for another season of hard work. Maybe I'll just export Ruf to the last SCEA update and go from there.

    That would be appreciated. The guys did a hell of a job though getting these out as quick as they did. A few oversights but hey I'd like to see someone else try it. They are only humans working for NO PAY mind you.
    They wouldn't have to do this if SDS had good rosters out of the box. Shame on SDS.

    What exactly is the deal with Sandoval and Chris Davis? I've seen them mentioned. I'm in Spring Training still but they don't appear on waivers for me but I can't add them to the starting lineup either.
    PhilliesFan13
    You're all also aware that current real life events affect this as well, right?
    Rosters for all teams in real life aren't set whatsoever. The game can't magically predict each teams 100% accurate Opening Day roster.
    True but the lineups could be more accurate.

    Before you start your franchise remove these players from 40 man and put them in minors somewhere. When you start your franchise they can be put back in 40 man and back to mlb and in you’re lineups.

    Do I have to do it before I start or can I just do it in the middle of ST as well?
    We owe Ridin our thanks for his service over the years.
    BUT
    This game was sold to a lot of customers based on FULL MINORS, and Ridin's name was used to fool the customers into thinking this product would be something it clearly is not. If Ridin could crank out top notch rosters without SDS tools over the years, imagine what he could accomplish when working directly with them. SDS marketed things this way. It was a lie.
    Look, I'm sure Ridin wants to have more control and not less going forward over the ability to produce top notch rosters out of the box. I get why he is not going to say anything negative publicly so as not to damage the relationship he is trying to build with SDS. Still, it was largely his name that was used to falsely advertise a product.
    This could at best be called FEATURING SELECT PROSPECTS, not FULL MINORS. So while I get that Ridin is probably trying to be smart business wise here, but a lot of us bought this game because of his name being attached to FULL MINORS. Ridin did piggy back on some of that marketing, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt, because he made his rosters before with no profit incentive.
    I'd just caution Ridin to not let some big company abuse his name by using it to falsely advertise. Yes, FULL minors is a blatant false advertisement. If he doesn't have a problem with what SDS did, then he has completely lost touch.
    Considering he was a customer this time last year like the rest of us, and after all his years of hard work, I will be assuming his heart is in the right place (even if he is clearly trying to turn this into a source of income -which, good for him, he deserves to be paid by SDS for his work)
    But I think it does justify some of the vocal disappointment by some. His name being attached to SDS by SDS upped the level of expectations. Clearly, going forward, those expectations need to be brought back in line with reality. Ridin has no direct ability to affect official rosters. Nothing has really changed other than getting audio and face scans for a handful of minor league players.
    Be careful with your name Ridin. I know you have to play nice with potential business partners, but SDS could easily hurt your rep by attaching it to their deeply flawed product.

    Pretty sure it’s too late once you start the franchise. Try it though
    Under game options and then user settings go to the end using R1 to u get to general then hit R2.
    Go down to injuries then turn to manual. (This part is key)
    Now in your franchise go to players you want to injury given and you now should see the option to.

    How do you manually injure a player?

    It's not too late if you are doing 30 team control. If you are, trade them for each other (you'll need to add in players to even up the money, I used Longoria and Urias). Then trade them back. You will need to be making the trade from the "losing" side or have force trades on to make it work. Then they are both available in line-ups.

    I actually did get to test it. I removed them from the 40 man in ST and once the season started it was able to add both back just fine.
    Is there any other players besides Sandoval and Davis? Those are the only 2 that I saw.

    Anyone check it out yet?

    I just finished redoing the other roster, that took me longer than I care to admit.
    They still have the W next to them but you can move them in and out of the lineup. For everyone that’s already set their rosters or just don’t want to start over, I’m pretty sure if you just move them to a ball and move them back to the majors it fixes it

    This is probably a dumb question, but does Sony ever update the team managers? Odd that the Royals have some made up manager when Mike Matheny has been a manager in this game before. I'm assuming this is something Ridin and his crew can't fix as I see no way to create or edit coaches.

    He's on Ridin's 1.5 roster (AA), not sure about the first one.

    What exactly did 1.5 fix?
    I set up 40 man rosters off Ridins set and finished last night. Trying to see if it’s worth doing over again. If it’s just the waiver issue, I assume with 30 team control I can fix it for those teams or just let it play out.

    I believe it was last year’s game, but Sony replaced the fictional managers of the Yankees and Red Sox with their real managers in a patch. I can’t remember how far into the season it was though. I wish we could edit the names of all the managers and coaches.
    Guys, Ridin called this a Spring Training set which is what we used to put out years ago before they started delaying the release the game til the end of March (believe it or not the game used to release around March 2 every year).
    The purpose of the Spring Training set was to give the community something to use until more in depth time could be put into a clean more accurate roster.
    Yes there are a few mistakes and misses on this roster but it is so much better than you have out of box, which is still more than we had a year ago.
    This community has become so entitled which is very sad. Enjoy what you were given for free, something many of us put many hours into giving you and something Ridin dedicates most of his free time into getting to you.
    If you can’t do that, try to imagine doing a roster for yourself- something I did before, it takes the entire summer to do and you never end up playing a game.
