I get this every year. Easily in my top 5 for iOS games.

It's not for everyone but if anyone has any questions, let me know.

this is also one of my favorite games ever

the player editor will be a welcome addition, especially if xander bogartes and henry owens are not rated up to the level they should be

I've got this every year too because it's fun to manage my favorite team (after putting in MLB logos and ballparks). However, it looks like they still haven't implemented manual save slots instead of automatic saves ALWAYS making you pick up where you left off. Sometimes I unfairly lose or accidentally bunt instead of take a pitch and I just want to revert to the beginning of that specific game. Here's hoping they'll play FHM2014 and see how useful that feature would be.

yeah the editor is nice. unfortunately, I have a hard time controlling myself when it comes to editing.

Over on the ootp forums, a lot of people like to show who they managed to draft, randomly generated freaks of nature, which was always fun to see. With the editor, those days are gone. But thats only minor to what is a great addition to the series.

I will say though, it does need an update to get all the text to fit correctly.

edit: the text is goofy on my iPad mini. looks great on my iPhone 5.

Default Pretty good

I like the editor, but there are just some really weird choices for player ratings here. They make Alex Wood (rookie for the braves, pitched in three games last year) BETTER than Craig Kimbrel who has broken at least 300 100+ year old records and has more saves in his first three seasons than any pitcher in history. Kimbrel is a 4 start player and Wood is a 4 and half star. Again, with the editor I can fix this issue which is great.

There still seems to be way too many wild pitches and walks every game though. The opposing pitcher and my pitcher (no matter who is pitching) will average 2 wild pitches and 5+ walks a game.

I like it and the editor will fix a lot of issues, but there is just some weird results sometimes.

Those ratings might be closer than you think, I would suggest switching from a star rating system to a 20-80

and then the actual and potential ratings to 1-100

gives you a better insight on who is truly the elite versus very good. the difference between a 4 star and a 4 1/2 could actually be one point. Not saying you still wouldn't have to edit BUT it might be closer than you think.

I just bought the 2013 one and it is sitting there rusting. I guess I don't need this one to join it heehee. It is fun though. I like manager games when I get time to play em!
