7 yr old son crying bc he was traded

SDS

Kinda sad watching my son who's 7 get traded from his favorite team, the Indians, to the Astros. I told him players get traded all the time in real life and that Lindor his favorite player is in the final year of his contract and he could get traded too. Of all the teams though I know he didn't want to go to the Astros. He thinks they're cheaters.

There's no crying in baseball!

SDS

Lol I thought the same thing. Tell a 7 year old that when he gets traded away from his favorite team though.

SDS

Yikes. That is pretty bad. That would make me want to cry and I’m close to 40.

SDS

I would refuse to play for them. Personaly I would sim everything until the offseason and demand a trade. Poor guy I feel his pain.

SDS

Setting the trade slider to zero should help.

SDS

Didn't know there was a trade slider. Personally I don't play RTTS. Mainly diamond dynasty.

SDS

Now you’ve got a great story to embarrass him with when he brings a date him for the first time.

SDS

They should really have options when you start RTTS.

An option to remove the possibility of the player getting traded (or at least give the player a No trade clause so that he has to agree)
An option to avoid the stupid position change BS.

I know that is not realism, but RTTS is the mode that should be about fun first and realism second. It is not fun to be traded to a team who you hate, or whose ballpark you hate playing at.

SDS

Yeah now we're in the dilemma of starting a new one or continuing on and playing for a team that he doesn't want to play for.

SDS

Does he have a save from before he got traded? If so load it up and turn trade slider all the way down. Always good to have two saves.
