I've been a long-time SIM user. Originally the Dynasty Sports, baseball, football, basketball and hockey. Lately, I've began getting into the Dynasty leagues: basketball and most recently, baseball.
First off...wow...This thing is intense, addicting, and could certainly become time-consuming. Especially for a rookie. I mean, one of the first things you have to deal with is managers and coaches negotiations. With little idea of any relative pay scale, you're basically bumping along in the dark. You never deal with that in Hoop Dynasty.
Also, the roster handling aspect is certainly more nuanced. All major league sports have their unique player/contract/roster regulations and related massaging of those regulations (Keith Van Horne). But baseball, with it's multitude of drafts, player levels, years-of-service, arbitration eligible, etal, requires a rare combination of talents to manage. My congratulations to anyone who manages all this and remains sane.
On that note, can anyone tell me what the point of the Inactive List is, and why would you use it? Isn't the point of the minor leagues to get prospects to play?
Still, I'm excited to get into the league, and any input, especially concerning roster management, is certainly most appreciated.
