Please help me get traded.

SDS

First off. I want to thank all Playstation gamers for allowing us Xbox gamers to play. (I know it wasn't up to you. Thanks any way)

I am in my 3rd season in RTTS and my team is terrible. I picked my home town team but now I want out. Is there a way get my guy traded? I have tried jacking up my salary offer until they refuse. Didn't work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah - sometimes you are on a dud team. And it sucks. Which is one reason why I never sign more than 2 year contract extensions. I don't care about the money - there's no point to it in the game anyway - I just don't want to locked onto a non-competitive team my entire career.

There's only two ways out that I know of:

(1) Every time your agent asks you how things are going - tell him you want to be traded. Word of warning here - there's always a worst team you could land on (think Marlins);
(2) I did this in an old version. Not sure it will work in 2021 or not. Basically I let my contract entirely expire. And at the end of the year after winter meetings and whatnot, I was able to "try out" for whatever AA team I wanted. I was 90+ OVR at the time. Picked the AA team for the team I wanted to play on. Tried out, made team, instantly promoted to majors. Of course, the story ended up ending sad. At the end of that first season (we won the Series and my SP won the Cy Young), I signed a 10 year contract for $30k per year. I figured that would "lock me in" on my favorite team. Why would they ever trade away the best pitcher in the league who is locked into a bargain basement minor league salary? Yeah, the very next year they traded me to basement dwelling team for a couple of minor league prospect scrubs (guys in their late 20's, early 30's with D potential and OVR somewhere in the 50's). So avoid long term contracts because the trade logic in the game has always been suspect.

Unfortunately with 6yrs of team control, you're kind of stuck just like a real player would be in real life... I tried not to sign anything once and they renewed me for 1 yr at the end of winter just like any real MLB team would have done.

Btw @Moosealbany_PSN your Cy Young pitcher earning 30K being traded for basically nothing is the either really funny or incredibly sad. But yeah GMs CPU are always making these weird inexplicable moove.

Since we can't touch the Sliders in RTTS21, I always keep a Backup Save each 1st and 15th of each month. That way if my GM decides to trade our best 19 yrs old Prospects with A pontial for a 66OV 36yrs old pitcher with D potential. I Roll back, loose 2 weeks and cross my fingers they won't do that same weird thing over and over again... (They might do it tho)

Another way would be to turn Transactions slider to the Maximum level, sit back and watch...

It will ruin all your league roster but it could get you out of there... It's not smart, you'll most likely suffer and ruin your game, but as a last resort it can be a solution. (Not a good one, but a solution nonetheless)

I'm not going to share the team. Out of respect for my home team.

Thanks everyone for the replies and help. I'm going to continue playing until either my agent gets me dealt, or six seasons pass.

Thanks again.
