So, here's my thing that I am doing. I want to make 12 teams for 2 6 team League Modes. I don't want real players, other than ones I make in Success Mode (if applicable). How I do it is to start a Season Mode, Expansion Mode. Then I Dream Draft only the Expansion team players that I can get, picking the best player out of the ones on those teams first, then the best pitcher or hitter, depending on the first pick, then another hitter, followed by a Catcher with at least C11 arm strength. After I get through the draft, there will usually be 15 fielders and 17 pitchers on the roster. I will give them all first names and sometimes change a last name if there are duplicates or if it's Villanuev, Tankersle or the like. Renumber them so there are no dupes. I have been exporting the teams after that up until now. I have realized I should run them through a full season of training and autoplay, and try to get additional breaking balls on the pitchers with only one during spring, then export.

Any thoughts?

This is cool. Would you like to use some of my success players for the league?

I am already using Goldsmith and another one of your pitchers on my Omaha Crushers team. Any decent hitters? Preferably a SS and a CF.

Thanks. Camp was the other one I used, he's the ace for the Crushers.

Yeah, Rodney Camp is a beast. He is the best '07er I've ever made.

Yeah, I made 2 really good ones that I'll be posting in the Password Exchange later. One is an SP, though he only has 90 Top Speed, the other is an excellent RF/LF.

I've stated before my plan to make 12 teams for two league modes. The leagues will be filled out by teams in this order:

League 1 (Logo)
New England Whalers (Whale)
Indianapolis Rave (Cat)
Omaha Crushers (Gorilla)
Montreal Solide (Rhinoceros)
Memphis Hounds (Dog)
Columbus Knights (Knight)

League 2 (Logo)
Albuquerque Maroons (Squirrel)
Calgary Shadows (Reaper)
San Antonio Saints (Angel)
Tacoma Dragons (Dragon)
Utah Dinosaurs (Dinosaur)
Las Vegas Posse (Western)

The Whalers and Maroons are going to mostly be filled with Success Mode players, Whalers based on players from my old Simyard teams, Maroons with players I've used since I was 8 in various games.

Each other team is planned to have 5-6 password load or other Success players I make.

Some of the players I've posted in the PW Exchange that are on teams so far: McLaughlin, Ho and Melendez with the Whalers, Derfie with the Maroons.

I'll post more when I am ready.

Temporarily suspending this due to getting PP08.

Sorry to necro this, but I've begun working on this again. Minor change to the Whalers, due to a mistake, is that Przybylski and Armijo will switch primary positions, but will be 2B/SS and SS/2B, respectively (named the 2B Przybylski accidentally, and am a little over halfway through Success Mode for him).

And since it was so long ago, There were 2 players added to the Solide, one I made and one I'm not recalling whether I made or not. A pitcher named Yano (I know I made), and a catcher named Ishida (not sure).

Completed a third player for that roster, the character from my avatar, Seira Morimura, who will be posted in the password exchange shortly.

I have a whole team roster on the wiki from MLBPP07 if you want to use it:

http://www.mlbppworld.com/wiki/index.ph ... e_Chargers

Its meant to be a real-ish team, not too overpowered, but back then I didn't really shy away from lots of blue abilities.

Feel free to throw them in, I'd be happy to see them in action in a log.

Unfortunately, your players are Wii, and I'm a PS2 user. Thanks for the offer, though.

Just a small update: The Memphis Hounds or (less likely) the Columbus Knights will be replaced by the Green Bay Wolves. Running these turds (can I say that?) through a season and spring to see what turns out. A success mode player I'm currently working on (Scotty Felkerson) will be their first addition once the team is exported.

Also planning an "All-Star" team made up of the success players from each league (excluding Whalers and Maroons players) to play a 4 team double round robin against the Whalers and Maroons.
