    A player gets more points for a strikeout or double play than for drawing a walk under the current points regime, since there you don't even get an AB for a walk. Any way this can change?

    Hey there!
    The statistics that are reflected in the Player Value come from the real life performances in the MLB. Walks would not be included in the ABs that we have included in the game. Regarding the strikeouts, those points are positive for Pitchers only. Did you find any issue in the game regarding this?

    Does the game have masahiro tanaka yet? He's one of the best pitchers, he needs to be in the game!

    Yes, the game has Tanaka. He will appear in the Free Agents list, but all of the players appear at random. Please make sure to check back daily to not miss your chance to sign him!

    I recently started on the game for Android (baseball is my favourite sport and NBA GM is a game I play a lot), when I went to bid on one of the players using money stored in my bank, which was a little over 10m, it would direct me to buy money from the store as if I didn't have any.

    Only when I withdrew the money did it let me bid on players. This is something that is possible (bidding from the bank) in NBA GM, and it is a great way to keep your money safe. My question is: is it not possible to bid from the bank in this game or did I encounter an unexpected error?

    Cheers and thanks for making this game.

    Hi! It seems this could have been just an unexpected error but we are checking into this anyway to ensure that it's not an issue in the Android version. I'll get back to you as soon as possible on this! Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Hey serramonte,

    My point was that batters earn 5 points for a bad plate appearance like a strikeout or double play, since both of those result in one AB. However, a player earns 0 points for a walk, which is generally a good result but receives no reward. Maybe this belongs under suggestions, but by omitting walks as a scoring criterion altogether, a player is more kindly rewarded for recording an out than for reaching base on a walk.

    I just hate to see one of my players go 0 for 1 with 3 walks, and earn 5 points, and then see another player go 0 for 4 with 3Ks and a GIDP, and earn 20.

    Hi, I'm FTB's big fan from Korea.
    My concern is about the FTB account connection.
    When I play the Baseball GM, and enter my account it shows me
    the 'check sign' with all three accounts.(FTB, Facebook, Email)
    while i got some coins from facebook and email,
    i didn't get 70 coins from connecting FTB account.
    Check and let me know.

    It's happening again. Whenever I have enough money to bid for a player from my bank it gives me this issue. Weirdly, if I don't have enough money it does give me the option to place a bid, but when I hit yes it says I don't have enough cash as expected.

    Hi there, Ok I see what you are saying - Yes - I am writing this under suggestions as I have received a few regarding the same already. I appreciate this and I'll be keeping you all posted regarding all updates in the future versions in the topic "What's New in Baseball General Manager". Keep checking there for new updates! Thanks again!

    Hi Ken,
    Did you get an email from FTB to validate your account? Once you validate the account
    and the coins should go to your account. If you have trouble with this, let me know and I'll help out. Thanks!

    Hi, so sorry about this. We found a hidden problem and resolved it now but the problem will be there until we release the new version for Android. I will keep you posted on when we will be releasing the new version. It will have many bug fixes as well so I just wanted to let you know to keep this in mind.

    Unfortunately, at the moment - in Android - you will have to withdraw the money out of your bank and make the bids that way. I know this is going to be very uncomfortable and annoying but this is just temporary until we release the new version of the game.
    Unfortunately there's a lot to do while releasing a new version and it's not a quick/easy thing.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    I've somehow managed to lose to a team ranked MORE THAN 1000 ratings points under me four times consecutively in the tournaments.  I've also managed to pull this feat off twice now and it's complete and utter nonsense.  Either the game thinks my team rating is lower than it's listing, my opponents is higher than it lists, or something else is going on. 

    Don't tell me that it "just happens" either.  I've played NBA GM and it never happens there and these games are very similarly structured.

    Very minor thing, but I'm pretty sure Juan Francisco's player picture is Francisco Liriano.

    Hi, yes this is correct. We would like to have it different, but unfortunately, that's how it has to be due to current agreements with the MLB - it's the same in NBA General Manager as well. Thanks for your understanding.

    Hi Jay,
    Hmm, we must be having a bug causing a visual error because we do have the correct picture on file.. We're checking into this to get this fixed asap.

    Hi, we're not saying it "just happens". It's possible there is an issue we aren't aware of.
    1 quick question..Did you make sure to check if you ran out of any Power ups? Also, if your
    players are losing energy your rating will drop as well.

    In any event, we will check into this to find out what could have happened. Are you using iOS or Android, and what's your Manager ID?
    Thanks,

    Correct. Once he starts playing and increases his Player Value he will be able to be sent to the Free Agent list.

    A loaded question, but I just have to ask because of the sudden appearance of all these super accounts that are from the same region of the world.

    Serramonte, are you sure folks aren't playing with hacked accounts? I can understand folks putting in around 1000.00 to jump start an account, but these folks seem to be putting in well above that amount, and even a gamer or enthusiastic IT person wouldn't be that insane to spend that much money, and to put so much personal time into a smartphone game. If they had that much money to waste and splurge, they do have to work to earn it somehow, and real life work appears to be something they really don't do much of. 

    Hope you don't take my question as an attack on FTB or the developers, as it isn't. All around, you guys are working hard to make this product successful. However, like many others who play apps regularly, I've seen this happen many times in other games, and seeing this here, now, is like Deja Vu for me.
