I am very, very bored so I decided to make a blog where I tell everyone how I built my MLB 08 team.  A few people did this before.  I started out with the Tampa Bay Rays

 

Traded Jonny Gomes to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Juan Pierre.  I always liked Pierre's speed in real life and he comes cheap in MLB The Show.  I added him to my other outfielders who were B.J. Upton, Rocco Baldeli, Carl Crawford and Dustin Mhor.

Created Evan Longoria.  Call this cheating but he's a player in real life so whatever.

About 35 games past, I won 23 of them.  Rocco Baldeli was hitting under .200 so I traded him and a prospect to the St. Louis Cardinals for Ryan Ludwick (who ended up with 47 home runs at the end of the season, I wasn't making him good or anything).

I had an open roster spot so I decided to put some more umph into my bullpen and added RP Jorge Julio from free agency.

At the trade deadline, I traded a prospect for Franklin Guttierez since my DH job was still up for grabs.

I was up by about five games at the All-Star Break over the New York Yankees in the division race but then I did terrible for the rest of the year and finished at 88-74 and did not make the playoffs.

I signed everyone in the off-season except some of my aging minor leagers amd Carlos Pena and during free agency signing, I signed Josh Hamilton, Joey Votto, Daric Barton, DeMaso Marte, Jose Rivas, Troy (?) Torrebela.  I also traded Juan Salas and Akinori Iwamura to the Detroit Tigers for Joel Zumaya.  I also signed closer Tony Pena since Troy Percival retired.
