Step 1: New season, go to expansion mode
Step 2: take control of one of the expansion teams (its best to customize your stadium, team name, home city, etc now)
Step 3: Start the season
Step 4: make trades with the OTHER expansion team to acquire their best 10 or so players, usually for points, simming ahead 5 days to get trade result
Step 5: dump any players over 40 total on your roster
Step 6: Go to Save, and Save your expansion team as a new Arrange Team
Step 7: New season, go to expansion mode
Step 8: Insert your expansion arrange team in PLACE of some other MLB team (the Rays for instance)
Step 9: Trade with the TWO other expansion teams, getting their best 5-10 players to add to your squad
Step 10: cut roster to 40 players, save as arrange team over your previous slot

Repeat steps 7-10 to your own taste

I may try the expansion challenge, but just play it straight-up with the players I get on the first try.

You can try, but All-Star will whip your butt. Even compiling the best of just 3 or 4 teams meant I went 10-30, on fast pitch and all All-Star CPU difficulty.

I've finally treading water - with a winning record! - after compiling about 9 teams' worth of the best guys. Even then finding a guy with speed D on my bench is difficult. And the two B power 1B sluggers I have both hit like .230 if I am lucky, urgh.

Here's my team info. How are the jerseys? Oh, and that's purple, not blue lol.

Are we allowed to trade for and sign real players later in?

no, no real players at all. no created players. Only what you can get as expansion rookies. True test!!

Its just a one-season game, because after a whole season you can train your guys in new positions, new pitches, and get big improvement from training.

I thought the rule was 2 created players?

yeah i had those on my first team, but like I said Amarista was too good. just a single blue, multi-position, and having speed C was enough to have him waaay too valuable. I figured I offset the plusses of going thru 9 expansion teams worth of talent by removing the created players. So that's what I'm doing. The other guy, Rymer Liriano, was kinda worthless, so maybe an under-powered created guy is fine…I just wanted to go 100% expansion this time.

I'll probably go past one season, but the challenge is the first year then. Okay. No real or created players it is. I won my first game 14-10. But I only used the team I was given, no multi-team stuff. My RF hit for the cycle as a 3EEEEFF. :lol:
