Now it's late in the season and I'm thinking I'll get called up soon, but every time I select to play my next appearance it tells me that the Reds have traded me to the Braves for David Ross. It's a video game for Pete's sake. There is a reason I put my player where I put him, and it wasn't to end up playing for another team. There should be a way around that. I know a real player could just get traded like that, but it's a darn game. I've quit and reloaded about 10 times and the result is the same every time. I really don't want to start over.
My experience with RTTS tells me you will almost never make it to the bigs with the team you started out on unless you are drafted by them. Assigning yourself to a team will likely get you traded.
