Season Mode is where you choose a team and try to win a World Series. You can either create your own in 32 team expansion mode or choose a regular team in 30 team (in expansion mode, you can choose a regular MLB team). You can do a dream draft or leave the team how it is (Hint: I recommend that you do dream draft if you chose an expansion team). If you choose to do a dream draft, here are the players you should pick:
1st round: A. Pujols, 1B Cardinals or A. Rodriguez, 3B Yankees
2nd round: D. Wright, 3B Mets (if Pujols) or H. Ramirez, SS Marlins (if Rodriguez)3rd round: J. Morneau, 1B Twins (used as DH or 1B)
4th round: R. Oswalt, P Astros or A. Wainwright, P Cardinals or J. Beckett, P Red Sox (if available)
5th round: R. Braun, LF Brewers
You should probably try to get Bengie Molina on the Giants. He's a good catcher and he doesn't go until the 12th round. Also Paul Byrd is a good pitcher for the Indians and he doesn't get picked until around the 12th round. Carlos Lee is a powerful OF for the Astros, so look out for him, too.
Tips from AgentP: 2008 dream draftEdit
I got Evan Longoria in like the 17th round, or the 12th. He goes very late. Also, Pirates catcher Ryan Doumit went to me in the 22nd round!!! San Francisco SP Tim Lincecum went in the fifth round, so I grabbed him. My team ended up with many players like Luke Scott and B.J. Upton, who are both outfielders. I messed up and got Jeff Mathis in about the 11th round, although he did become a quality catcher when I traded Doumit.
|4||Trevor Hoffman (Mariano Rivera also went in this round)|
- - BIG STEAL
In Round 4, it is probably better to select Rivera.
