Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

In MLB The Show, I am starting Jharel Cotton as my #5 instead of Tyler Chatwood. He's pretty decent in virtual fantasyland. He's still on the team in my RTTS. He's mediocre, put up like a 4.25 ERA or something, but our offense is otherworldly so he went like 18-2 last season, lol. Also odd, Ian Hap...
