Was looking over the file tonight and noticed a glaring issue we can fix for the better of The Dugout. This is so far off from what happens in real life and is easily fixed. Having veterans who are fully developed going against raw under developed players hurts what this is all about.We are using a morale system that is influenced by many factors. For an example one of those factors is team records. If we got fully developed veterans going against raw players are we on a equal playing field ? Why not just put a bunch of fully developed veterans that got no chance of making the bigs with a few of our stud prospects in Single A. They will likely win at a higher rate resulting in a better team record. Which on morale will make the player very happy. Or performance issues for example. You got a nice young arm who is looking to develop his talents and is facing a bunch of older men who are at peak development. While he is stuck playing at 1/3 of his future potential ability. So he gets knocked around a bunch and his performance suffers forcing his morale to dwindle. And we all know what that means. These are just two common examples of what is happening in the league. We all signed up to maximize the sim experience by being able to groom every aspect of the big league organization. So lets do that and copy it in the exact same way the real major league organizations do it. Here is a baseline of what the current MLB franchises have going on. Let the numbers speak for themselves and make your own opinions. Lets see who the real gms are and force guys to make decisions at each level to best suit that players advancement and there organizations. http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/minor-league-leaderboard-context/ Here is the numbers we have in our league. Too make this a simple task I will only be using the baseline real life average of 28.2 years old in AAA. Posting the number of players 28 or older in each affiliate. Of the 30 teams x 25 man rosters there should be roughly 750 players at each level (ignore the short a ball etc using this as a guidline is all). Look at the numbers based on a 25 man roster on average 397 players over the age of 28 AAA...........(13.2 players per team) 204 players over the age of 28 AA.............(6.8 players per team) 243 players over the age of 28 A..............(8.1 players per team) Cut it in half since we all have 2 teams 142 players over the age of 28 Rookie ball (4.7 players per team) Cut it in half since we all have 2 teams Below is the current Active Roster Age breakdowns in real life. So what do you guys feel is the percentage of players over 28 in your minor leagues right now that got a realistic shot of long term production at your MLB level ? What are we looking forward too in the next release with these trends in your opinion ? Lets keeps pushing to make the Dugout the best it can be and seek to maximize the awesomeness this game already gives us from OOTP. Why settle!
