    I played with the Reds for a season but then switched to a fantasy draft. I do have Kearns and Pena on my team though.

    Re: Anyone play MVP 2005

    i've been playing in Dynasty mode...i simmed through the 2005 season, then dumped many at the end of the year. my lineup is now:

    ss - FeLo
    2b - Freel
    3b - Brian Allen (i...uh..admit i always create a player named Brian Allen for all of my teams, have done this since the beginning of time, and will always do this. Allen is a very good player).
    cf - Junior
    lf - Dunn
    rf - Pena
    1b - Casey
    c - Fuentis (I am not sure who Fuentis is, but it appears he is a catcher in the Reds's system. the guy who Fuentis is based on might not be very good...but the game seems to think this guy is a freaking stud).

    backups:
    infield - a couple of kids who only exist in the virtual world.
    outfield - Kearns, who is getting a lot of playing time to rest Griffey, and keep Dunn away from lefties. he has also been played at first a lot.
    catcher - LaRue.

    pitching:
    Some guy named after me. Hey, what can i say. doing pretty good for a 37-year-old rookie (10-3, 2.45 ERA).
    Harang.
    Claussen.
    Dontrell Willis. yeah...Marlins actually offered him to me, for some remarkably mysterious reason. They wanted - get this - Milton and Aurilia. i deferred the trade and threw in Weathers.
    Ben Sheets. Free agent.

    bullpen:
    Ryan Wagner, closer.
    Luke Hudson, Josh Hancock and Homer Bailey are also in the pen. Hancock is about to take his 6.04 ERA to AAA, while Bailey is about to take his 2.06 ERA to the starting rotation in place of Claussen. the rest of the spots are taken up by rookies.

    present record, as of July 6: 50-31, five games over the Cardnals.
    a couple of weeks back (game time), i played a 17 inning marathon vs. the ChiSox, which i lost, 1-0 on a freaking walk-off homer...i groved a pitch to some yahoo whos name escapes me. believe it was his second major league homer.

    Re: Anyone play MVP 2005

    I use the Reds of course. I'd have to start the game up to actually see all of my bench and bullpen guys, since I've really overhauled the pitching staff. My lineup looks like this.

    SS Felipe
    1B Casey
    CF Griffey
    2B Jim Coombs
    LF Dunn
    RF Pena
    3B Kearns
    C Larue/Fuentes (I'm not sure if that Fuentes guy is real or not, but he's pretty good and will be starting in another season.)

    rotation
    Me
    Harang
    Claussen
    Moss (think I got him in a trade, but I can't remember)
    Homer Bailey (He's Raul Perez in the game, so you have to edit his name.)

    The bullpen is somewhat wacky at the moment.

    Kaz Tadano
    Samuels
    Wagner
    Belisle
    (a couple others I can't remember off hand)

    On the bench I have Freel, Fuentes, Hideki Inoue (speedster who playes 2B, future leadoff guy when Griff retires and Coombs goes to the outfield) and a couple other guys who escape me at the moment. I have Kearns starting at 3B, but will plug him into the OF to give one of them a break and put one of the bench guys at 3B. I had Randa, but traded him when the Reds did, just to keep some semblance of accuracy about the whole thing.

    I won 94 games the first season and swept the Yanks in the Series (sweet) and I'm on a second season now, but still early. I've won 6 and lost 2 and I have a 1 game lead on the Cards at the moment.

    Re: Anyone play MVP 2005

    ok, just took a quick look through the Reds' rosters and such...is it possible this Fuentes fellow is supposed to be Miguel Perez.
    kind of reminds me of how a couple of roster makers for High Heat turned Braves catching prospect John McCann into a stud.

    It might be. I think he was in Sarasota when I started my first season, but he progressed rather quickly through my minor league system. Wily Mo has turned into an absolute monster for me in the second season. Believe it or not, I actually pitched rather well with Milton as well, but I still unloaded him just to get rid of the salary. Anyway, take a look at this Inoue guy. He's a second baseman in the Mets farm system and he's listed as one of the top 100 prospects or something like that. You can get him for pretty cheap and he'll be a superstar after a couple seasons in the minors. He's fast as lightning and has decent power as well. I don't know if he's a real player or not, since I don't follow minor league systems outside of the Reds.

    Re: Anyone play MVP 2005

    Milton and Casey were huge for my first season with the Reds. Casey had 40+ HRs and Milton won the Cy.

    This is the second year of the "new" dynasty with the fantasy draft. Wily Mo had 46 HRs and 138 RBIs. The guy would kill any fastball on the inside portion of the plate.

    That's been my experience with Casey as well. He just crushes the ball on that game. Perhaps that has something to do with them modeling him after the season he had last year and not this year. Milton is a good pitcher on there as well if you know how to use him, but he just makes too much money.

    Re: Anyone play MVP 2005

    I never have hit over 20 HR with Casey. I am in the 2/3 through a season with Dunn and he already has like 45 and 100 RBI.
