#1 During the off-season, as CPU teams put players on assignment waivers before the 40-man roster deadline...users gotta be able to submit waiver claims using the Pending Transactions menu, which heretofore is inaccessible.
#2 In-games, when you go to your bullpen and examine available pitchers, the player cards need to either include the Stats tab so you can examine detailed matchup metrics...or at the very least the top-portion of the player card should include Games, Innings Pitched, and WHIP in addition to the Wins, Losses, Saves, ERA, Strikeouts already listed.
Better progression and weaker regression is what it really needs
Real Budget Management and Luxury Tax Management. Should be based on AVV (Luxury TAX), just as in real life. No weekly cash flow; too complicated!! Also, expansion!! Please look at NBA2K. Copy that, at least.
Online Franchise, playable against the CPU also.
