I find the game increasingly difficult. It used to be that the AI would build up good teams that were one-year-wonders. Now I find teams that are consistently strong for up to 5 years in each division. This makes the WS much more difficult to get to never mind winning it. In recent seasons I've even lost the automatic best record and home field advantage that comes with it. If these improvements continue into v13 I'll be a happy camper.
So much for personality. Albert Belle, a complete nut job was never traded and was the highest paid player in the game, twice!
