When we last talked about franchise mode in MLB The Show 21, Bob discussed how he wanted to see the mode evolve over the years.

Here, Matt dishes in video form as he discusses five things he wants to see out of franchise mode just this year.

We’ll get a better idea on April 1, but until then, we’ll continue to hope for the best.
