You may want to copy the thread "Feeder League Guide" by Biggio509. It is found in the "new to the game" tab in ootp 14. I found it to be a big help when I wanted to delve into that aspect of the game.

I've been helping someone on the OOTP 15 Steam forum who is learning about the sport while playing OOTP, and he was looking for some good books to read. I gave him the link to this thread since there are many great online resources in the OP, but how about books? Can anyone suggest any good books he should read about stats, strategy, etc.?

Thanks.

Appreciate the work and sure glad to see it got stickied. Thanks.
Here's a simple mod I created to create a text file for importing multiple historical players into OOTP as well as creating the players bbref link which you can click to goto the players bbref page.
Add it to the Mods if you'd like. Thanks

IMO he should read this first

Watching Baseball Smarter: A Professional Fan's Guide for Beginners, Semi-experts, and Deeply Serious Geeks, by Zack Hample

And this second

Sabermetrics 101: Wrap-Up (And Announcement!) - Lookout Landing

After that, two books

1. The Book: Playing the Percentages in Baseball, by Tom M. Tango (Author), Mitchel Lichtman (Author), Andrew Dolphin (Author), Pete Palmer (Foreword)

2. Baseball Between the Numbers: Why Everything You Know About the Game Is Wrong, by Baseball Prospectus

At that point he will know more than some managers and GMs do.

financial player tip

Here is a tip I found out by accident just playing around. Some of you might already know this. It also might be something Marcus might want to look into. I run the Phillies in 2014 in my sim. I'm starting the 3rd month. I have the same problem the real Phillies have as I can't trade Ryan Howard no how. All the GM's laugh at my proposals. So I thought, what if I just retire Howard? Which I did. I found him on the retired list and clicked on his name and unretired him putting him in with the free agents. I found him there and asked him his demands. SURPRISE!!!! He wants only 1.2 million for 1 year. Way, way better than the 79M he was owed for the next 4 years. So, I gave it to him. Nobody else had any offers and he signed with me. I did the same thing with Chase Utley. Although he wanted 9M for 1 year. Now I have 38M in my coffers for free agents and extensions. This seems like some kind of financial flaw, but it worked for me. Marcus might want to try to do something about being able to do this. I have an unfair advantage over the other GM's now. I have since traded both Howard and Utley to get my team a little younger. LOL Sorry for such a long post.
Thanks for reading it.

I don't think this is a flaw, since you relied on commissioner mode to essentially "reset" Howard and Utley by retiring them and voiding their current contracts, then unretiring them and seeing demands in line with what fee agents with their stats, ratings, and age would likely ask for.

It's likely the Phillies will part ways with Howard during the offseason, so someone will likely scoop him up as a cheap free agent. The real Phils just won't have a commissioner willing to make Howard's current contract go away.

Question about international scouting

Is there a way to tell my scout to only go after players internationally with a potential ranking of 50 or higher? I'm seriously tired of him signing 10 people a year with a potential of 20/20 or 21/20.

wow... last time I logged into this site was over 10 and a half years ago. Can't believe I remembered the password. nice...
