Background:

This guide is for the players who like to have accurate rosters, but lack a
sharkport or online setup. Basically, all the transactions from the time period
of the games final roster shift before going to print (est. 2.20 --> 2.23) up
until today are included. The transaction list includes only players that were
on the original ASB 2005 roster.


Key:

It\'s pretty self explanitory, but i\'ll go over the format anyway:
(Team/Place Player Can Be Found in Game)
(Player Name) --> (Destination Team/Place)


How To: 

A few times people have written to me asking how to change the rosters around.
It\'s a bit more of a pain in this year\'s version since for some stupid reason
acclaim decided to take out the option of letting you customize rosters from
the main menu. The only way you can change the rosters is by starting a season.
There are two ways I\'m aware of how to change them, each with their own
positive and negative aspects:

The first way is to start a season with your GM Control set to All Teams. This
is the easiest way since it gives you the most control. You can easily trade
between teams, assign players to levels, and setup lineups and rotations for
every team. The negatives that come with chosing this type of GM Control are
having to give up player injuries, and being forced to play in Simple Franchise
Mode (having some offseason management options taken away).   

The second way is to start a season with your GM Control set to One Team. This
way lets you keep all the options the other takes away (injuries/management
options), but it is much more monotonious. In order to trade players, you need
to use your own team as a catalyst. For example, if you are using the Mets and
want to trade Milton Bradley to the Dodgers, you\'d first need to trade Bradley
to the Mets from the Indians for a fake player (any D- rated A or AA player),
then trade Bradley to the Dodgers from the Mets for another fake player.
Considering the amount of transactions involved, this method could take awile.
Also, since you only have control of one team, you have no control over where
the computer controlled team decides to put the player you\'ve traded to them.
Milton Bradley could end up spending the season in AA. You also have no control
over how the lineups or rotations for computer controlled teams are set and
unfortunately, one trade could cause the computer controlled team to switch
around it\'s lineup and rotation to a way which makes no sense.   
     

Tips:

I wouldn\'t recommend filling the free agent pool quickly as some players might
disappear once it becomes crowded. if you trade players to their destination
teams for D- rated low level players (who are computer generated anyway), you
won\'t have to worry about losing anyone. 

You should also manually restructure the rosters if there are any depth chart
(like too few players at a position in a certain level) issues after you\'re
done trading. if you choose automatic, some players you might want to keep on 
the team could be placed in the free agent pool or a lower level.
