About This File
This ROM is an update of the “Spring Training” edition. The rosters have been updated, and I updated the ratings to incorporate the new formula I’ve been using for the historical ROMs.The ratings are based on 2014’s statistics with a few “grandfather” exceptions (Alex Rodriguez, Prince Fielder, CC Sabathia). These players are rated on expected stats as opposed to their actual stats. They are better than .000AVG/0HR, .247AVG/3HR, and 3W-4L/5.28ERA, respectively, due to injury and suspension.
The most difficult decision was whether or not to include Yu Darvish on the Rangers, even as a #4 starter due to him being out for the entire year after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Ultimately, I omitted him from the roster.
When playing, don’t be afraid to dig deep into the bench. Some teams started this year with a handful of starters on the disabled list. They are on the roster, but didn’t make the opening day starting lineup. Don’t be surprised to find a 20+HR/.300+AVG player on the bench.
*UPDATE* This is a slight update over the original version of the ROM that I updated at the beginning of the season. I fixed Jason Hammel's name to read "J.Hammel" instead of "C.Hammel." Also, I cleaned up the "noise" from the opening screen so now it properly reads "2015 SEASON" instead of "2013 UPDATE." (Note: This ROM is not a roster update to incorporate trade deadline trades. The next roster update will be in the 2016 edition of the ROM.)
